Umrah In Ramadan:
Compiled in Abu-Dawud's , "The Rites of Hajj", (Book 10), Hadeeth narrated by Abdullah Ibn Abbas , Prophet Muhammad, (pbuh) has said:
"To perform Umrah in Ramadan is like performing Hajj in my company."
Although, the reward for performing Umrah in Ramadan is equal in reward to a Hajj. It is NOT a substitute for Hajj. Hajj is the obligatory once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimage.
Umrah travel and arrangements are very similar to Hajj travel and arrangements.
