A Series of Reminders About The Month of Rajab – No.4

Is Making ‘Umrah In The Month Of Rajab Mustahab (Recommeneded)?

Shaykh al-‘Uthaymīn رحمه الله said: “The Salaf have differed regarding whether ‘Umrah in Rajab is a Sunnah or not. Some of them say it is a Sunnah and others say it is not because if it were a Sunnah then the Messenger ﷺ would have made it clear that is was Sunnah either by way of speech or by way of actions. And performing ‘Umrah in the month of Hajj is better than performing ‘Umrah in Rajab because the Messenger ﷺ made ‘Umrah in the months of Hajj, in any case, I do not know of single clear proof which proves that making ‘Umrah in Rajab is Mustahab (recommended).”
