Umroh 26 Desember pesawat Landing Madinah

Haji dan umrah memang memiliki beberapa kesamaan yaitu sama sama mengunjungi Baitullah untuk beribadah kepada Allah. Namun haji dan umroh memiliki perbedaan mendasar yang perlu diketahui setiap umat sedari dini. Berikut ini adalah perbedaan-perbedaan antara haji dengan umroh:

Perbedaan Ibadah Haji dan Umrah dari Segi Waktu Pelaksanaan
Haji dan umrah adalah ibadah yang, menurut kaca mata orang awam Indonesia, sama; “pergi ke Mekkah”. Namun, sejatinya keduanya memiliki perbedaan penting. Haji, sering disebut sebagai haji besar, hanya sah \ bila dilaksanakan setahun sekali pada musim haji/bulan haji yakni 9-13 zulhijjah. Sedangkan umrah, kapanpun anda ingin pergi beribadah umrah maka itu bisa dan sah dilaksanakan. Artinya, Ibadah umrah dapat ditunaikan setiap waktu sepanjang tahun.
Perbedaan Ibadah Haji dan Umrah dari Segi Tata Cara Pelaksanaan (Manasik)
Dalam prakteknya, orang yang menjalankan urutan-urutan ibadah haji berarti ia sudah melakukan praktek umrah. Karena umrah ‘hanya’ terdiri: niat, thawaf dan sa’i, memotong rambut/tahallul . Sedangkan haji, meliputi semua tata cara umrah ditambah dengan (dan inilah perbedaan mendasarnya) wuquf di ‘Arafah, menginap di Muzdalifah dan di Mina, serta melempar jumroh.

Perbedaan Ibadah Haji dan Umrah dari Segi Hukum
Status “WAJIB” telah menjadi ketetapan hukum haji. Di kalangan ulama’ tidak ada perbedaan dan perselisihan dalam hal wajibnya menuaikan ibadah haji bagi orang yang mampu. Sedangkan mengenai wajibnya umrah (bagi yang mampu melaksanakannya), para ulama berbeda pendapat; sebagian mengatakan wajib, dan sebagian yang lain mengatakan tidak wajib.

PERBEDAAN HAJI DAN UMRAH

KATHMANDU, Nepal — When the dense pillar of smoke from cremations by the Bagmati River was thinning late last week, the bodies were all coming from Gongabu, a common stopover for Nepali migrant workers headed overseas, and they were all of young men.

Hindu custom dictates that funeral pyres should be lighted by the oldest son of the deceased, but these men were too young to have sons, so they were burned by their brothers or fathers. Sukla Lal, a maize farmer, made a 14-hour journey by bus to retrieve the body of his 19-year-old son, who had been on his way to the Persian Gulf to work as a laborer.

“He wanted to live in the countryside, but he was compelled to leave by poverty,” Mr. Lal said, gazing ahead steadily as his son’s remains smoldered. “He told me, ‘You can live on your land, and I will come up with money, and we will have a happy family.’ ”

Weeks will pass before the authorities can give a complete accounting of who died in the April 25 earthquake, but it is already clear that Nepal cannot afford the losses. The countryside was largely stripped of its healthy young men even before the quake, as they migrated in great waves — 1,500 a day by some estimates — to work as laborers in India, Malaysia or one of the gulf nations, leaving many small communities populated only by elderly parents, women and children. Economists say that at some times of the year, one-quarter of Nepal’s population is working outside the country.
