◾️Is ‘Umrah obligatory once in a lifetime similar to the Hajj◾️
Answered by Shaykh Abu Hamza Hassan bin Muhammed Ba Shu’ayb -may Allah preserve him- on the 1st, Thil-Hijjah, 1440H
Is it correct that Umrah is obligatory once in a lifetime similar to the Hajj?
Alongside some mention of it’s proof.
Yes, it is obligatory with the proof being the statement of Allaah,the Most High:
(وَأَتِمُّوا الْحَجَّ وَالْعُمْرَةَ لِلَّهِ)
“And perform properly (i.e. all the ceremonies according to the ways of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, the Hajj and ‘Umrah (i.e. the pilgrimage to Makkah) for Allah.”
And due to the hadeeth of Aa’ishah, may Allaah be pleased with her:
عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، قَالَتْ قُلْتُ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ عَلَى النِّسَاءِ جِهَادٌ قَال “ نَعَمْ عَلَيْهِنَّ جِهَادٌ لاَ قِتَالَ فِيهِ الْحَجُّ وَالْعُمْرَةُ ”
“I said O Messenger of Allaah is there Jihad upon the womenfolk?
Whereby he said:
“Yes, upon them is a Jihad which contains no fighting, [and it is] the Hajj and the Umrah.”
