Masjid e Taneem is a masjid about 5 miles away from the Holy Kaaba, in Taneem, which is near Mecca and acts as Miqat (a station for putting on pilgrims' garments) for people living in Mecca. This masjid also known as Masjid Ayisha.Prophet Mohammed's wife Ayesha had put her Ihram (restriction on Pilgrimage) from this masjid once.

If you do not have your ihram you can purchase one for cheap at the traders surrounding the masjied. They sell the counters, ihram, sunhats for ladies in nikhab, money belts, slip slops, quraans and all you need for less than what it costs closer to the Haram.

A stopby to prepare for Umrah. It is at the edge of Mecca. Nice place to visit with excellent toilet facilities and beautiful area for a family photo.

A lot of people coming and going. Clean place, not far from haram or other locations. Only issue is timings are a bit off with prayer, there were a dozen people praying their own jamaa'ahs (congregations) at the same time.

This is the border or in Arabic Miqaat for Umrah, for the locals of Makkah though there are few others such as Shumaysi. Masjid Aisha is located at Taneem District.

Carpet is always dirty. Take a deep breath before you go in Sajda otherwise all the dust will enter your nose. There was a very long queue at toilets.
