Veteran actor Dilip Kumar, who turned 90 last month, will head to Saudi Arabia Wednesday evening to perform Umrah with wife Saira Banu. The couple will be accompanied by a few relatives.

"Allah has been kind that he's given me the strength to go on Umrah (pilgrimage) with Saira, Asif, Faisal... My doctor friends, few relatives are also accompanying me to Umrah. Keep me in your prayers," the thespian tweeted Wednesday.

Umrah is a pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia. It is performed by Muslims and can be undertaken at any time of the year. In Arabic, Umrah means "to visit a populated place".

Confirming the plan, Dilip Kumar's manager told IANS: "He is going for the pilgrimage with his wife, some close friends and relatives. They have their flight Wednesday evening and will stay there for 10 to 15 days."

    Hope I get a chance to perform Umrah/Hajj at least once before my sinful soul leaves this earth.

    May Allah accept his Umraah

    Offering 'Umrah does not make Hajj obligatory because the physical and financial ability is different for both these rituals. Hajj, you would agree, is more strenuous and also more expensive. Hajj is obligatory for a Muslim who has physical and financial strength to do it, whereas 'Umrah though desirable and commendable is not obligatory for every Muslim.
