Is Makkah and Mina considered as one city?

Q: I wanted to know that with regards to being a musaafir, is makkah and mina considered as one city? Some say that its not – if this is your view, then what is the proof for it and if it is not considered as one, then some say its urf. What is the proof that this masalah is based on urf?


A: We have not researched this.

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