Great Masjid. This masjid is called as Masjid-e-Aisha. I visited this Masjid along with my family and Alhamdulillah prayed Isha Salat there. This masjid is located at one the Miqaat to perform Ihraam & Umrah which is nearest to Haram Sharif. Must visit.

a lot of people coming here for miqat, good to come early in the morning so that you have ample time for your umrah. You can complete your umrah before zohor.

This is the miqat for local people. It is a short taxi ride to get here from Makkah. One has to negotiate the taxi fare before riding, most drivers will wait for pilgrims to perform prayer at Masjid Taneem and drive them back to Makkah

This is the mosque where people can come and start their Ihram whoever wants to do another Umrah. Roughly 20 mins from the Harem and costs 20-40 SAR to go and come back with your ptivate car.

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.
