I wanted to clarify that when someone undertakes the journey to perform Umrah from Madinah is it acceptable to adorn the ihram from their hotel room, or is it furdh to only do so from the local miqat? I believe which, is Dhul Hulayfah if I’m not mistaken?
If, one knowingly still adorns the ihram from their hotel room then I take it their Umrah will be invalid?
Wa Alaikum Assalaam.
الجواب و بالله التوفيق
One can adorn Ihram from their hotel room in Madinah. It is not essential that one does this only when he reaches the Miqaat. However, one cannot pass the Miqat (Dhul Hulayfah) except that he is in the state of Ihram.
And Allah Knows Best.
