I live in Riyadh and have plan with friend to go Jeddah via car. We will be crossing Miqat. So will it be mandatory on us to perform Umrah?

If you intend to go to Jeddah and you don’t intend to enter in Makkah Mukarramah i.e. Haram then in the question mentioned above neither it is mandatory for you to wear ihram nor perform Umrah.


وحرم تاخير الأحرام منها كلها أي لآفاقي قصد دخول مكة يعني الحرم ولو لحاجة غير الحج ، أما لوقصد موضعاً من الحل وجدة حل له مجاوزته بلا احرام الخ (در مختار مع الشامى 3/481، كتاب الحج، ط: زكريا)
