Going from Jeddah to Madinah first

Q: I have a question about Umrah. I am scheduled to travel for umrah in early Feb 14 and thinking about going to Madinah first after landing at Jeddah from NY and after staying few days in Madinah, I will travel to Makkah for Umrah. Can I do this or I have to perform umrah first before going to Madinah?


A: It is permissible.

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