2. If this person goes to Madinah from Jedddah, he is crossing the meeqat, then he returns to Jeddah on the same day. Now if he goes to Masjid ul Haram, does he need to wear ihraam and first perform umrah or can he go to the Haram for tawaf and prayer, etc. without ihraam.

Bismillaah

A:

1. He does not need to.

2. If his intention is to come to Makkah straight via Jeddah then he should wear the ihraam.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
