Here are some ways to follow in order to purify your previous sins by performing Umrah;
Perform Umrah with the Best of intentions:
The most important aspect of a Muslim’s deeds is his intention.
Narrated ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab:
I heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) saying, “The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration was for what he emigrated for.
“(Sahih al-Bukhari 1, Book 1, Hadith 1)
If someone has bad intentions while performing a good deed, that good deed may not be beneficial to him in the afterlife courtroom.
Similarly, the intention of Umrah is extremely essential. And, if you’re thinking to perform Umrah, make it your primary goal to atone for earlier sins. Accept your misdeeds or sins with a clear intention.
Crying from the heart and Seeking Forgiveness:
Once you have a pure intention and awareness about the significance of this holy journey. It is now time to put your commitment and intention into action. Bow before Allah SWT, cry out to Him and beg for forgiveness. If your sins are related to other people, you should first seek their forgiveness. Because it is obvious in Islam that Almighty Allah will forgive only his rights, but not the rights of others on the individual. So, pilgrims are advised to seek forgiveness from everyone before going on their journey to Haram.
Pledge to Allah that you will leave your bad habits behind:
It’s one thing to ask for forgiveness; however, another is to stay dedicated to it. Shetan is a lifelong enemy of Human beings, especially Momins. He cannot simply allow any Muslim to perform his religious duties freely. Therefore, he is always attempting to lead them away from the right path. Anyone who has committed previous sins must ensure that he or she does not do them again.
Assist and Persuade Others to Do Good:
Allah Almighty created us from one another and developed relationships between us. So, that we can care for and help one another. This is also what humans are expected to do. According to the teachings of Islam, misbehaving with others is unforgivable unless the person forgives. Therefore, Muslims believe assisting others to be the greatest rewarding deed.
Stay Committed to Everything Listed Above:
It is extremely difficult to perform all of the above in today’s modern world, where humans can easily become caught up in the comfort and luxury of the world. That is also a known and definite enemy of Muslims, never allowing them to get closer to Allah. Therefore, after the Umrah, a great deal of commitment is a must-have. Make sure you follow all that has been stated previously. You should commit and never again repeat the sins you have done in the past to remove or expiate previous sins by performing Umrah.
The purification for sins is the Umrah. Whoever performs Umrah and Allah accepts his Umrah, Allah promises complete forgiveness from all the previously committed sins. However, by performing Umrah, you can purify past sins in the above-mentioned five different ways.
