Umrah Badal | Umrah e Badal | Badal Umrah | عمرة البدل
Umrah on behalf of your parents or grandparents – alive or deceased, or other loved ones.
Based in Madeenah (Saudi Arabia), Fatwa-Online is pleased to present this badal umrah service.
A qualified student of knowledge from the Islamic University of Madeenah or Umm al-Qura University in Makkah will be appointed to perform the umrah badal on your behalf; He will benefit from the fee he receives by allowing him to maintain himself / his family whilst studying, in shaa.-Allaah. So your fee has a double benefit in having the umrah badal performed as well as helping a student of knowledge, in shaa.-Allaah.
This service is offered at a cost of only £149 for the umrah badal throughout the year, except for Ramadhaan when it will rise to just £199.
Just some of the benefits of using this service
1) Very competitive price
Our price is very competitive in comparison to those of the umrah tour operators. From our research, the umrah tour operators currently offer their lowest prices upwards of £750! – that’s anywhere from three to four times more than what we charge for our simple no-hassles service;
2) Student of knowledge
We guarantee that your umrah badal will be performed according to the Noble Qur.aan and the Authentic Sunnah, since we will be utilising our resources from amongst the qualified students at the Islamic University of Madeenah and Umm al-Qura University in Makkah, in shaa.-Allaah;
3) Certificate of completion
Upon the completion of the umrah badal, we shall send you a notification email simply to confirm that your umrah badal was performed successfully, in addition to emailing you a certificate testifying so, in shaa.-Allaah;
4) Double-edged benefit
The student of knowledge appointed to perform the umrah badal for you will benefit from the fee he receives by allowing him to maintain himself / his family whilst studying here in Madeenah, in shaa.-Allaah. So your fee has a double-edged benefit in having the umrah badal performed as well as helping a student of knowledge, in shaa.-Allaah.

Things to consider when doing umrah badal yourself
1) Find a reliable umrah tour operator
Naturally, you would wish to feel confident that all the rites of umrah are performed according to the correct understanding of the Qur.aan and the Sunnah and free from any innovations;
2) Allocate funds
You can expect to pay the chosen umrah tour operator anywhere from £750 upwards. The umrah tour operators presently available offer a wide range of packages and prices that are not always affordable to many. By opting for our hassle-free service, those who cannot afford these expensive tours for themselves can rest assured their umrah badal will be performed by us at a very reasonable price;
3) Book time off work
This can pose a problem for many people who do not have a choice when they can take their annual leave and as a result may have to take unpaid leave. Moreover, it may prove difficult to take the sufficient amount of time off work that is required by the umrah tour operator as most groups remain in Saudi Arabia for two weeks or more, whilst the umrah rites are generally completed in 1 day;
You will need to comply with the Ministry of Hajj requirement of having all the necessary vaccinations to safeguard against illness and disease during umrah, the most important vaccination being for meningitis.
Reference: Majmoo’ Fataawa wa Maqaalaat Mutanawwa’ah – Volume 16
Shaykh Ibn Baaz was asked: Some of the Scholars say that the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) permitted the performing of the Hajj on behalf of the deceased, and not the ‘umrah; So is it correct [to perform] ‘umrah [on behalf of the deceased]? We are in need of knowing the evidences, so [please] benefit us [and] may Allaah reward you with good.
The Shaykh responded: It is permissible to perform the ‘umrah on behalf of another, just like the hajj – whether or not the person is deceased or frail due to old age or an illness which is not anticipated to pass. So he is allowed to perform the hajj and the ‘umrah on his behalf.
A man came to the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and said: O Messenger of Allaah, indeed my father is an old man, and he is unable to perform the hajj and nor undertake the journey, so should I perform the hajj and ‘umrah on his behalf? He said:
«Perform Hajj and ‘Umrah on behalf of your father» – [transmitted by Imaam Ahmad from the hadeeth of Abu Ruzayn al-‘Uqaylee No.15751, and an-Nasaa.ee No.2621].
So there is no harm in performing the hajj [and umrah] on his behalf.
