This mosque is not very clean especially the women secssion. We went to visit here to get into ihram again for a second umrah for parents. We took a taxi from behind the clock towers to the mosque which cost us 80 saudi riyals. You should tell the taxi to wait for you because that village does not have many... More

THis is where the Nabi Mogamad Saw sent Sayidinah Ayesah and her brother to enter into a state of ihraam to perfom her Hajj Ifaalda. Mosque has been upgraded since last I was there in 1996 and so peace and tranquil

this is a place where u have to offer two rak' aat namaaz before one proceeds for umraah..if a person needs to get their umrah done again, then this is the starting point.....no matter where u r staying in makkah...u have to come back to masjid taneem, to offer your prayers before one can start their umrah..

Masjid e Taneem is a Masjid located about five miles away from the Holy Kaaba, just outside the Haram boundary. It also called Masjid-e-Ayesha (RZA) as she used it for Ihram (putting on pilgrim's garments) and Niyyah (making intention). It has bath, ablution and changing facilities. Many people use it as Miqat (a stated place) for performing more than one... More

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.
