There is a pilgrim who intends to do Hajj, but he has business in Makkah then in Madeenah. He passed the meeqaat and did not enter ihraam, and he entered Makkah then he went to Madeenah, and entered ihraam from the meeqaat of Madeenah for Hajj. What is the ruling on his action?
Praise be to Allaah.
So long as the pilgrim went out to the meeqaat of the people of Madeenah, and came in ihraam, he does not have to do anything about his entering Makkaah previously without ihraam. But it would have been better for him to enter from his first meeqaat in ihraam.
And Allaah is the Source of strength.
