5 Souvenirs You Can Bring Home from Your Umrah Journey

To Muslims, Umrah is one of the highlights of their spiritual journey. Each year, millions of people visit Mecca to worship and dig deeper into their faith. Taking on this journey requires a lot of preparation of both the physical body as well as the mind and emotions and for Muslims, the journey is worth it. Want to commemorate your Umrah? Here are some souvenirs you can bring home from your journey:

1

Zamzam Water

This water comes from the Zamzam Well, located at the Great Mosque of Mecca. This is one of the most popular souvenirs people bring home from their journey. This water cannot be found elsewhere so make sure you ask your travel agent how you can get this souvenir.

2

Oud Perfume

Oud is known for being one of the world’s most expensive perfume ingredients. It is loved by many for its irresistible musky scent. This makes for a great souvenir for yourself or a gift for your loved ones. Take note that a standard bottle costs at least 200 Riyals but you can purchase replicas that in small bottles.

3

Abaya

Traditional Abayas are worn by Saudi women. The Abaya is made from quality fabric and now comes in a variety of colors and designs. There’s a mall located opposite the Nabawi Mosque, Medina that has a designated area that sells Abayas. Of course, you can also find this in many other boutiques in Jeddah and Makkah.

Robe

This is the traditional clothing for men. It’s very easy to find people selling robes. In front of the Nabawi mosque, you’ll find a lot of street vendors selling robes from as low as 20 Riyals.
