Q: I went for quiet a few umrahs and in one of them, I cannot remember which one. The following occurred: Due to the fact that I cannot remember which umrah it was, I cannot remember where I read my Salaatul Ihraam. Along the way from Madinah Shareef to Makkah Shareef thinking that the Meeqaat is far ahead, I intended to postpone my intention for Ihraam, and I passed the miqaat without intention for Ihraam, and I cannot remember if I passed the Miqaat with my hat on my head or not, and I also cannot remember if I made my niyyat with talbiyah for Ihraam later on or I made my umrah without the niyyat for Ihraam. What should I do. I am going for Umrah in the coming Ramadan (Insha Allah).
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
