Our mother earth is fertile with cluster of religions but the peculiarity of Islam is doubtless. Its uniqueness lies in its accomplishment and perfection. According to Quran, Allah (SWT) is closest to our jugular vein. But sanctity of place is one of the decisive factors for acceptance of the ibad’ah (prayer) in the court of Allah. In this regard Hajj and Umrah are the vital target intentions for Muslims under the sun. Performance of Umrah as a family sometimes diminishes the bliss of this angelic act just because of wrong choice of operator and lack of tips/strategies to adopt as an Umrah doer. On this religion–oriented platform we are going to discuss few worthy tips to plan your Umrah.
• Instillation of Spirituality:
First of all incur into your family a realization by mentioning the reward of this Holy journey from Allah. By doing so, an inner patience gets originated from their heart themselves. And if your family includes kids then you have to be more conscious and patient. Clearly reveal to kids that this special vacation includes more visits to mosques, more prayers and supplications than a routine vacation. Help them to learn few duas (supplications) specific for kids during Umrah (so that they consider it a religious duty).
• Vaccination of kids and Adults:
Before stepping out of your country for Umrah, vaccination of kids and adults is highly recommendable as well. It is extremely unavoidable thing that should be in your notice even few months in steps forward. Once the kids caught by fever or any side reaction, it becomes a big frustration for you.
• Crises management while moving in crowd:
Keep in mind during performing Umrah that you may encounter with the stampedes. So, while passing through crowded areas, it is necessarily important to keep an observant eye on the kids and other old members of the family (use of rope is suggestible if chain of hands doesn’t suit you). It is the height of agony when your child gets missing from your surroundings. Before all these arrangements, educate your family members especially the kids to be in proximity of their parents.
• An exact check on the dressing:
A brief counseling regarding the dressing of your family is really a key duty of yours. This is strictly recommended because most of the families from European countries keep on dressing in the same western clothing. You must put on the traditions of those very regions. Educate the daughters about Hijaab and boys of age 6 plus should wear Ihraam.
• Refrain from bringing toys:
It’s good to not bring the toys to the mosque specially those having face and figures. Same prohibition must be followed in the case of mobile phones and electronic gadgets (to make kids busy). These things may disturb other people’s prayer or hurt them if left unattended on the floor.
Must Haves for kids:
• Snacks or light food to feed them timely.
• Water bottle
• A sack like bag for shoes of kids and other members
Must Do’s for Kids:
• As per kids energy status make rest breaks and naps.
• Don’t ignore their nature’s call.
• Rent a wheelchair for toddlers.
• Must arrange few healthy and spiritual activities for kids and adults as well
✔ Take them to several sight-seeing places.
✔ Suggest them to feed the birds around the mosque after fajar prayer
✔ Try to spend much time inside the mosque and get closer to holy things and dua’as
Be realized as parents:
Being Muslim parents, Show your patience and kindness to your family as a prior obligation. Make their Umrah journey most memorable and blissful of their lives. Under nerve-taking conditions, an Umrah with family is a great sacrifice.
