Hadith Number One:
Hazrat Amr bin Absah R.A. reports that Rasulullah Sal’am said! ‘Verily the best of deeds is righteous and accepted Haj or a righteous and accepted umrah.’
In the first chapter (hadith number 2) we have already explained the meaning of the Hajje mabroor and this same meaning applies to a mabroor umrah. In one hadith we read: ‘Umrah is a minor Haj’. (Durre Mansoor)
In other words umrah contains within itself all the fruits and blessings of Haj but to a lesser degree.
Hadith Number Two:
Hazrat Abu Hurairah R.A. reports that Rasulullah Sal’am said: ‘Sins committed since one umrah are forgiven through the next umrah’.
Rasulullah Sal’am here wished to tell us that whatever sins one commits after one umrah can be forgiven through the blessings of an umrah. So what was done between two umrahs becomes washed away. Many other hadith corroborate this statement.
