    Posted: 15 January 2014 at 12:18pm

Assalamu alaikum,

I am going for Umrah from Toronto Canada in 2 weeks inshallah. Since this will be my first Umrah and my first visits to Saudi Arabia I have following questions:

         I will reach Jeddah around 7:00 PM and then I am planning to go to Mekkah and I have not booked any hotel. I am planning to book it there myself. Any recommendations on how to get to Mekkah and book affordable hotels (which one?)   

         If I want to perform  2nd Umrah and I am staying in Makah then what place is miqat for my 2nd Umrah

         If I am stying in Medina and I want to perform 3rd  Umrah then what place is miqat for my 3rd  Umrah

         Do I have to perfume  Tawaf Al-Ifadah

Wa alaikum salaam,

Wow, wish I could join you. Allah bless you with a safe and fulfilling trip. You can take a taxi from Jeddah airport into Mecca. The scholars differ on making multiple Umrahs in the same trip, however it's permissible. The closest miqat (ask at the hotel or taxi drivers) is about 30 miles southeast of Mecca (Pilgrims from Yemen area). You can enter into ihram from Medina for Umrah. Tawaf ifadah is for hajj. And Allah Knows Best.

Assalamu alaikum,

Thank you very much for your reply. May ALLAH could take you there as well.

How much fare is reasonable by taxi?
