Entering into Iḥrām before Mīqāt

by | 3 May 2023 | Ḥajj & ‘Umrah, Q&A


I plan to visit KSA for Umrah. I plan to fly from UK to Jeddah and stay there one night. Thereafter next day, visit Mecca to perform Umrah.

Do I need to wear Ihram before reaching Jeddah or Don the ihraam next day at Miqat since I plan to stay there one night when reaching Jeddah?

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

It is necessary for you to enter into the state of Iḥrām before crossing the mīqāt prior to entering Jeddah.

And Allah knows best
