Saudi Minister of Hajj and Umrah, Dr. Tawfiq Al Rabiah, has given advice to Umrah pilgrims about the best times for performing sacred rituals for a more meaningful experience.
Dr. Al Rabiah suggests that the morning is the best time for Umrah, specifically between 7:30 am and 10:30 am. In the evening, the recommended time is from 11:00 pm to 2:00 am. These suggested timeframes can help reduce crowding and create a peaceful atmosphere for worship as pilgrims gather at the Grand Mosque in Mecca.
He also mentioned that the least crowded days for Umrah are Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, providing pilgrims seeking a calm and focused experience with suitable options.
Dr. Al Rabiah highlighted the pleasant weather in Mecca, which adds to the overall comfort of performing the rituals. This favorable climate not only enhances the physical experience but also contributes to the spiritual atmosphere, allowing pilgrims to connect with their faith in a serene environment.
