Ask an Alim

Miqat from Jeddah


Assalam o Alaiakum.
I will be staying in Jeddah for 2 days and will be travelling by car to perform Umrah.
Jeddah is within the Miqat zone and I am not sure from which point I have to wear Ihram in-order to perform Umrah without leaving behind any rituals.
Kindly help me in this regard.


Wa Alaykumussalam

Thank you for your question

According to Ayatullah al-Udhma Sayyid Ali Sistany’s office:

One can either go to Juhfa* or else you can do Nadhr(by saying Nadhartu Billahi نَذَرتُ بِاللهِ ) and wear Ehram in Jeddah and go to perform Umrah.

Please read about Nadhr in detail on:

* Juhfa is around 150km away from Jeddah.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
