The definition of ‘Umrah
‘the definition of Umrah in the language:
It is the visit and the intention.
‘the definition of Umrah is the Shari’a:
It is a visit to the House of Allah to perform worship of Allah and to perform ihraam, by doing tawaaf in the house, and seeking between Safa and Marwa.
And doing the required conditions before doing ‘Umrah, such as shaving or shortening hair.
‘Umrah is obligatory and legitimate. and that was the opinion of jurists and as the saying of Allah :
(وَأَتِمُّوا الْحَجَّ وَالْعُمْرَةَ لِلَّهِ)
And there is another opinion that it is considered a year, so that it can be performed by any Muslim man capable of once in his life or more according to his abilities and physical and financial capabilities, if he can perform more than once he is something that goes back to him and is in balance of his work, and the ninth year of migration was the year in which ‘Umrah was imposed.
The ‘Umrah does not have a specific time for performing it, but an individual can perform it at any time he wants and be ready for them during the year, but he must know that he can not perform them at the time of Hajj.
This is evidenced by the distinction between Umrah and Hajj in repetition in the same year.
This is due to the virtue of Allah to His slaves because Umrah is not specified at a certain time of the year, but it can be performed in all months.
The best month to do ‘Umrah is the month of Ramadaan because of its great reward.
The ‘Umrah is two types: single ‘Umrah, and the ‘Umrah of enjoyment.

–Umrah to Umrah is expiation for what is between them.
-Continuation and follow-up between Hajj and Umrah make poverty and sins away.
