Passing the meeqaat for one who intends to do Hajj and ‘Umrah, then goes back to it


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 ihram, and he entered Makkah then he went to Madeenah, and entered ihram from the meeqaat of Madeenah for Hajj. What is the ruling on his action?


Praise be to Allah.

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 ihram. But it would have been better for him to enter from his first meeqaat in ihram. 

And Allah is the Source of strength.
