See how Mankind is following the Quran without knowing it:

Will we ever send humans to Mars?

I was researching the root meanings of the word Umrah, which gave some interresting insights:

Ayn-Miim-Ra = to inhabit, dwell, mend, repair/revive, tend, build, promote, cultivate, make habitable, to make better, to develop, populate, to serve/uphold/observe/regard, to visit, to colonize, aimed at it, frequently visit, a visit in which is the cultivation of love/affection, repairing to an inhabited place.
perform a sacred visitation, minor pilgrimmage, pilgrimmage with fewer rites.
to remain alive (save life), to live, life, age, long-life, old-age.


And together with the Hajj meanings:

Haa-Jiim-Jiim = to intend to a certain target, aim at, repair, undertake, repaired/betook himself to or towards a person / place / object of veneration/respect/honour, went/visit frequently/repeatedly, pilgrimage.
Overcome another by/in argument/evidences/proofs/testimonies, plead, contend/argue/dispute.
Refrain/abstain. Year/ to probe a head wound to cure it.

THis creates such large definitions of the two words, so I made a small attempt to contruct a good one for both of them:

Umrah = Visit to a place on Earth or other planets which is unhabited to colonize it, develop it, populate it and to build the System in such a way so it can survive till the end of time.

Hajj = A yearly Gathering to undertake a Debate between the people on Earth, where the problems of the people are researched to solve these issues so the aim of positive development of Mankind is attained.

The understanding I get from Umrah is very interresting as it refers to establishing societies and it promotes the concept of inhabiting other planets, to cultivate uninhabited places as Mars and the Moon.

As the Quran is a Book that takes Mankind into the future, this is a very logical observation.

2:196 (Peace cannot defend itself. Mankind have to guard it.) Therefore, observe the Hajj:

-A yearly Gathering to undertake a Debate between the people on Earth, where the problems of the people are researched to solve these issues so the aim of positive development of Mankind is attained.

And ‘Umrah for God:

- Visit to a place on Earth or other planets which is unhabited to colonize it, develop it, populate it and to build the System in such a way so it can survive till the end of time.


If you are stranded, send in gifts that the congregation would utilize.

Do not consider that by doing so you have relieved yourself of duty. Be with them at heart until the gifts have reached their destination. If someone is sick or has other compelling burdens preventing him from sending any contribution, then Abstinence for a few days at convenience, or an act of charity or fulfilling someone’s need shall be in order.

If a person is present at the Convention but cannot afford to contribute, he should exercise Abstinence for a total number of ten days, three days there and seven days after coming home. This is for him whose folk do not live in the vicinity of the Convention. Be mindful of God, remembering the noble objective. And know that God (His law) is Strict in grasping.

Excellent understanding. I would add that if we are thinking of the StarTrek age, Umrah would probably mean emmigrating to an uninhabited place (whether to another island on earth or another planet) and Hajj would mean to establish contact with, and have/host debate/dialogue with a nation (or species) to spread the divine message and extend the hand of friendship.

It almost looks like the scenario of a federation with a prime-directive.
