Shah Rukh Khan may be seen in images and videos that have gone viral on social media wearing the Ihraam, a white robe that is wrapped around the actor’s body. But are you aware of the specifics of Umrah and how it differs from Hajj? Here is all the information you require.
According to Middle East Eye, Umrah is a trip to Mecca during which Muslims from all over the world assemble to pray and seek atonement for their sins. Umrah is the condensed form of Hajj. While performing the Hajj is considered obligatory at least once in one’s lifetime, performing the Umrah is a choice. For those who are unaware, the Hajj is an annual pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia, which is regarded as Islam’s holiest city.
