I hope that you can advise me about the people of the south when they come via the coastal route; is it permissible for me to enter ihram from Jeddah? Because my route is along the coast.
Praise be to Allaah.

The miqaat for the people of Yemen who come via the coastal route is Yalamlam, which is known today as al-Sa’diyyah. It is not permissible for the one who passes by it or comes in line with it, intending to do Hajj or ‘Umrah, to pass it without entering ihram. Jeddah is not a miqaat for them; rather it is the miqaat for its inhabitants and for anyone who intends to do Hajj or ‘Umrah and is residing there, or who comes to it without the intention of doing Hajj or ‘Umrah, then decides to do Hajj. 

And Allah is the source of strength; may Allah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and Companions. End quote.
