As the holy month of Ramadan is almost upon us, or has already begun in a few countries, celebrities have taken to social media, sharing their journey and time performing Umrah at Saudi Arabia.

Umrah is a religious pilgrimage undertaken by Muslims, in which they travel to Makkah in Saudi Arabia.

This year, with the holy month of Ramadan coinciding with the spring season, as well as Saudi Arabia lifting certain restrictions put in place during the Covid-19 pandemic, Umrah bookings have reached unprecedented numbers in the last few years.

1. Sania Mirza

The tennis star posted photos of herself and her family in Makkah and Madinah. She can be seen smiling with her son with the rugged mountains of Saudi Arabia in the background. In another picture, Mirza smiles at her niece, whom she is carrying in her arms.

A selfie clicked by Sania's sister Anam shows the tennis player posing with her parents and son.
