    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    The hadith speaks of the greater virtues of Umrah. It is emphasized Sunnah to perform Umrah once if one is able to do so, while performing Umrah excessively is mustahab. The Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم) had many other necessary things, apart from Umrah, which he preferred:

    ویعتمر قبل الحج ما شاء، وفي اللباب: لا یعتمر قبل الحج فغیر صحیح غیر جدید (215)
