How many times can a faithful perform Umrah?


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


A person may be able to perform Umrah as many times as one wishes, as long as they have the sufficient funds to carry out the task and be able to support any family that he has at home or with him on his trip.[1]

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (may Allah have mercy on him) narrates that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “(The performance of) `Umrah is an expiation for the sins committed (between it and the previous one).”[2]

Hafiz Ibn Hajar writes: “This hadith gives an indication towards performing many Umrahs.”[3]
