Difference between Hajj and Umrah

For those who don’t know, Hajj is farz (obligatory) for every Muslim, while Umrah is a Sunnah. In simple words, Hajj which is also called the fifth pillar of Islam is a long and religious journey that is performed only at a particular time of the year. On the other hand, Umrah is a short pilgrimage that can be performed at any time of the year.
