Meeqat to Makkah; Ihram is necessary


Assalam mu alaiqum dear respected Mufti saab, i have a question do you have to wear ihram if i'm going from mikat to mecca.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

In principle, it is compulsory for an aafaaqi (one who lives outside the boundaries of meeqaat) to wear ihram whenever he intends to enter the boundaries of haram. [i]

If an aafaaqi person enters the boundaries of haram without ihram, then either he has to give damm or return to the meeqat and wear ihram, then re-enter haram. In this case, he does not have to give damm.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

ومن دخل مكة أو الحرم بلا إحرام فعليه أحد النسكين، فلو أحرم به بعد تحول السنة أو قبله من مكة أو خارجها داخل المواقيت أجزأه وعليه دم المجاوزة، فإن عاد إلى ميقات ولبى عنده سقط عنه دم المجاوزة أيضا
