Teach your Kids about Umrah Ritual

Along with the completion of all mandatory Umrah rituals, visit the significant Holy sites of Makkah and Medina with your kids. You must teach them about the significant events inscribed in Islamic history.
Easter- A Joyous Festival of Sprightly Spring
Easter is the joyous festival coming in the sprightly spring season. During this season the Saudi climate is moderate as compared to the whole year. The day temperature in Saudi land is mild in April and at night you would notice a considerable drop in temperature.
You will have a Relaxed Umrah
April is a favorable time in Saudi Arabia. So you wouldn’t need to bring extra items with you like sunscreen lotion, umbrella, hats, etc. However, Tawwaf and Sai in the hot summer season become arduous as the pilgrims suffer from dehydration.
Limited Number of Umrah/ Hajj Pilgrims in Easter Time
Unlike Hajj or Umrah in Ramadan, where the Mecca is crammed full with millions of pilgrims and you have to witness the huge throng of pilgrims come from around the globe. However, in April/ Easter, there would be less number of people and you would have relaxed and holy time in the Holy cities of Makkah and Medina Insha-Allah. Your intentions would purely be towards Allah (SWT). Imagine that you would have a spiritually Golden Opportunity to feel the charisma and Grandeur of the Holy Black Square construction.
