"The umrah is viewed as a smaller scale version of the hajj, which is the major spiritual journey of the religion. In both pilgrimages, worshippers journey to Mecca in Saudi Arabia to pray seven times around the Kaaba, a stone building at the site of the Great Mosque."

This is such a wonderful experience. I miss it a lot. May Gid accept their pilgrimage.
