Q: What is the ruling on going to Umrah during the month of Ramadan for a period less than ten days? Why is the period of Iqamah (staying) determined to be ten days? 

A: There is no problem to go to Umrah in this case. Besides, the period of Iqamah is determined to be ten days because it is the least number of days one should stay to call the place he stayed in as a “Watan” (home).
