The Umrah journey is not time-sensitive, but December and January are popular months for Muslims to travel to Makkah. This is due to two factors: first, it is the end of the Hajj season, and second, the weather in Makkah is pleasant during the months. As a result, booking a hotel is also simpler.Other months preferred by Muslims for Umrah include Muharram and Safar, the first and second months of the Islamic calendar. Because of Islamic calendar is 10 to 12 days shorter than the solar calendar, these months do not always fall on the same date, but the month of Muharram will begin on August 10th this year.
