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.

Meeqat for travelers intending to perform Umrah. Nice masjid and very nice atmosphere. So holy and merciful. I did my second Umrah from here. The bathrooms are busy - so check for your time as you may miss your Salat

You can get cab to get here, do your intention and get back to mecca. It takes less than 30 mins and costs 10 riyals per person both ways. Used the... More

If you have time, I recommand to visit Masjid Taneem and do Talbiya in order to do another omra. The more the better.

The me'eqaat for the commencement of the Umrah (entering into Ihraam) is a most accommodating venue. Very satisfactory amenities. Very accessible by bus from Makkah.

Whilst staying at Mecca to complete Umrah again, we had to start our ehram from this masjid. We went by bus which was a short journey away and the masjid was so peaceful. It is very quiet and was not too busy. The masjid is beautiful however the carpets are so dusty that you can feel the dust whilst praying.... More

For Muslims, while they are staying in Mecca, they have to go to Meqat Location (which is Taneem Mosque) which is outside Mecca's Haram Boundaries to Pray & Start the Umrah process by Doaa to God. The Masjid is very well equipped with everything Muslim can need including Showers, Toilets, Washing Area, Cold Drinking Water, Air Condition, ...etc even Regular... More
