Performing ‘Umra in Ramadaan is equal to Hajj (in reward)

786. Narrated Ibn ‘Abbaas (radhi Allaahu anhu) :

Allaah’s Messenger (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) asked an Ansaari woman, “What prevented you from performing Hajj with us?” She replied, “We have a camel and the father of so-and-so and his son (i.e. her husband and her son) rode it and left one camel for us to use for irrigation.” He said (to her), “Perform ‘Umra when Ramadaan comes, for ‘Umra in Ramadaan is equal to Hajj (in reward)” or said something similar.
