Doing Second Umrah Without Going to Masjid Aisha (Hil)

Fatwa ID: 03511

Answered by: Alimah Nasima Umm Hamza



Assalamu alaikum,

I did one Umrah after coming from Jeddah and then stayed overnight in a hotel (which is in the clocktower area).

I did a second Umrah the next day after leaving my hotel but forgot to go to masjid Aisha. Do I need to give dam or does the second Umrah count?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The one who is in Makkah is required to return back to the Hil (the limit for ihram) i.e. Masjid Aisha, and put on ihram and make intention for Umrah from there. [1]

By performing Umrah, you have missed out this necessary step of passing the meeqat, and therefore you are liable to make one dam. [2]
