i am living in al khobar , i want to perform umrah. my parents came from india to perform umrah too and at present they already performed one umrah and they want to perform another one, i am going directly to makkah to perform umrah with my parents.
actully some body told that i cant go to masjid ayesha directly to wear ihram becuase i am coming from al khobar (east).they
told me to wear ihram from taif and to go to masjid haram
my question is – IS IT PERMISSIBLE FOR ME TO GO TO MAKKAH DIRECTLY AND TAKE MY PARENTS
WITH ME TO MASJID AYESHA (MASJID THANEEM) TO WEAR IHRAM AND TO PERFORM UMRAH.
In the name of Allāh, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Assalāmu ῾alaykum wa Rahmatullāhi Wabarakātuh
If you are arriving from the Eastern Province then you will have to don the ahrām from Qarn e Manāzil (Tāif). Therefore, you cannot proceed directly to Makkah Mukarramah without donning an ahrām From Tāif.
