One of the virtues of Ramadan is making or Umrah and Ramadan lesser pilgrimage to Mecca is more valuable during Ramadan than it is outside of Ramadan. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam said that to make her Umrah, to make this lesser pilgrimage in the month of Ramadan is equivalent to making Hajj,
the major pilgrimage, a pilgrimage that can only be done once a year at a specific time.
And that is because pilgrimage is difficult. It's difficult in a lot of different ways. It's similar to charity, but it involves other elements that make it special. You have to plan, you have to be proactive, you have to set aside money ahead of time, right? You can't just go at the drop of a hat. So it's a sacrifice of money. It's a sacrifice of time you have to take off from work and school or whatever else you have going on. You have to suffer. You have to wear uncomfortable clothes, you have to be in crowded, close quarters with other people. You're not going to have the same comforts that usually do jetlag, and all those other things for those of us in the western hemisphere.
And so that's any time of the year. But what about during Ramadan? When you're not eating? You're not drinking?
Right, you're you're weak, you've got a headache, you're hungry to do all these things in that state. Of course, it's going to be even more valuable than if you had done outside of Ramadan.
