Those who are only going for Umrah are more likely to have a well-planned trip if they make their reservations quickly and without knowing what the weather is like in Makkah and Madinah. Pilgrims can't enjoy the freedom of hours when the sun is beating down on them. This puts their health at risk and makes them less likely to travel or go shopping. Because of this, you should talk to your Umrah agents at least four to five months before making a plan. Also, if you book well in advance and have a good plan, you might be able to get the best Last 10 Days Ramadan Umrah Packages.
Give me an idea of the weather in Makkah and Madinah in general:
When it comes to Makkah's weather, the months of December, January, and February are much better, with an average daytime temperature of 31°C. Madinah enjoys an even milder climate. During the same months, the temperature in Madinah ranges from 24 to 25 degrees Celsius. British Muslims have started to plan for Umrah during the Christmas break. This is a fairly new trend. If you want to do something similar, you might want to look at our December Umrah.
In addition to the smaller pilgrimage, this is the time to plan to do outdoor activities or just explore the area around you. Even in the middle of the day, the sun is fine, and shade is enough to beat the heat. However, in June and July, without an air-conditioned car, the desert is simply unbearable. For many, these are the hardest months of all.
What months should I look forward to if I want to do Umrah at a low price?
If you want to see a calmer and quieter Saudi Arabia, you might want to go there after Hajj, between the months of Muharram and Safar. This is when the temporary ban on Umrah is lifted and life in general slows down.
In the true Islamic spirit, which months are best for doing Umrah?
Muslims from all over the world rush to do Ramadan Umrah to mark the start of Ramadan. Because of this, pilgrims and other tourists crowd into the holy cities. Same thing happens around Christmas and Easter, when more people come from other countries. This is why hotel prices go up, which most pilgrims can understand.
Is it true that there is something called an Umrah-ban? If so, how long does it have to be in place?
We think it's important for pilgrims to know that Islam doesn't have any specific dates for Umrah. You can do it at any time of the year. But the Saudi government doesn't give visas to foreigners three months before Hajj, during the months of Shawwal, Dhul Qadah, and Dhul Hajj. Since the Hajj is coming up, this is the time when all the administrative work is being done to get ready for it. Travelers will be turned away by the authorities, which will make them feel very uneasy. But there's no need to worry because things are likely to get better for Umrah pilgrims in the month of Muharram.
