After Shadab Khan, former Pakistani cricketer Waqar Younis has also performed Umrah (Islamic pilgrimage) with his family in the holy month of Ramadan.

Moreover, Waqar and his family also visited Masjid-e-Nabvi (PBUH) in Madina.

Waqar informed his followers about having the blessed opportunity on his official Twitter account.

The former cricketer, who is also a cricket commentator, posted four pictures with the tweet, where he expressed gratitude towards Allah for the blessing.

"Alhamdulillah...ALLAH invited us to his house for Umrah," he wrote.

Waqar can be seen with his wife Faryal and son Azaan in the pictures. The Holy Kaaba and Gumbad-e-Khizra (The Green Dome) are also seen in the backdrop of the pictures.

Hundreds of believers travel to Saudi Arabia every year and perform Umrah in Ramadan, seeking the Almighty’s blessings during the holy month.

The pilgrimage was restricted for the last couple of years due to the coronavirus pandemic but now the situation has improved and the Kingdom has allowed foreigners as well.
