Going to Madinah Munawwarah before Umrah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: My question is about Umrah: After lending in Jeddah from New York, can I go straight to Madinah Munawwarah and come back to Makkah Mukarramah from there after 2 days for Umrah? I would like to visit Masjid-e-Nabawi sallallahu alaihi wa sallam first and after staying there for couple of days, I will return to Makkah Mukarramah for Umrah.

A: Yes, you can do this.
