Question

I visited Makkah Al-Mukarramah during the month of Ramadhan with the intention of performing 'Umrah, but after staying a day in Makkah Al-Mukarramah, I became sick and we were not able to complete the rites of 'Umrah. We performed Tawaf around the Ka'bah making 7 trips and we made Sa'y between As-Safa and Al-Marwah. However, we were not able to go to Al-Madinah Al-Munawwarah to visit the Haram of the Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) due to this illness of mine. So, I returned to my homeland. Is this visit counted as an 'Umrah for us?

Answer

If they performed the Tawaf and Sa'y and cut their hair, then this is a complete 'Umrah and it is rewarded. In reference to visiting Al-Madinah, this is not what completes the 'Umrah, nor does it have any relationship to 'Umrah. Visiting the Prophetic Mosque is only a Sunnah (supererogatory act) that the Muslim does whenever that is easy for him to do.
