What is called Hajj e Asghar?

Ummrah is also called Hajj-e-Asghar.

Umrah is an Islamic pilgrimage to Makkah, located in Hejaz, Saudi Arabia. It is the holiest city for all Muslims around the world. Umrah in contrast to Hajj, which has specific days and month of performance, can be undertaken at any time of the year.

Umrah is called Hajj-e-Asghar or Minor Hajj because it can be performed at any time of the year and it has less reward than Hajj. It is a miss belief in Pakistan and India that when Hajj is performed on Friday, it is called Hajj-e-Akbar and the rest are Hajj-e-Asghar. This is not true.
