Masjid e Taneem is a mosque in the Al-Hil area about five miles away from the Holy Kaaba, in Taneem, which is near Mecca, it is the boundary of Haram therefore pilgrims can put on Ihram. This is not the Miqat so it is not compulsory to wear Ihram here. This mosque is also known as Masjid -e- Ayesha since Muhammad's wife Ayesha had put her Ihram from this place once.

As this is the nearest miqat point for umrah, it is just around 10km away. you can go there by htaxi, hire car/van or bus. And the cheapest option is by bus -2 riyal only. And by van 5 riyal per person.

Buses/coaches operate right outside the haram to Masjid Ayesha and then goes back to the haram.. it is the cheapest way to get there and back. Much cheaper than taxi, a very large mosque is always busy with pilgrims.

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

A lovely mosque also known as Masjid Ayesha. About 11km away from Kaabah.

This is believed to be the point where Ayesha (RA) stopped and rested until her menstruation period finished and she continued from here to the Ka'abah to do Umraah with Muhammed (SAW).

However, the Mufti at the Kabaah informed me that this is not the case and there is no Sunnah making this a Miqat point! By this time I had already done lots of Umraah's! I was told that it is better to do Tawaaf then to do lots of Umraah's

Please find out through the correct research/scholars if this is a Miqat point as all the other Miqat points are much much further than this one.

Worth a visit anyhow due to historic significance.

Tana’eem / Masjid Aisha are one of the Meqaat’s that are very popular with the Umrah ritual. For a little as 2SR one can commute to that location from the bus station in Umm Al Quraa Street . Cost = 2SR for a one way ticket. So to & from will cost 4SR only. A mere 20 minutes bus drive to Tana’eem . One can also take a taxi but it is generally more costly. I have never used the taxi service so cannot comment on cost and time to location. Busses run 24/7 from Umm Al Quraa Street & Tana’eem. I have never waited more than 5 minutes at either location. Busses are the red SAPTCO government marked busses & can be easily spotted in Umm Al Quraa Street. Really easy to hop on & hop off concept. Just remember to buy a ticket at the ticket station in Umm Al Quraa Street. It will be easily spotted just watch people movements as most Mutamireen will be in Ihraam clothing. Try to keep exact cash to speed up things when purchasing the tickets. Note that cash is generally not handled /accepted by the bus driver. He will only take purchased tickets. If you hop on and present/give him cash he will chase you off the bus. Be reminded to ask him if his going to Tana’eem / Masjid Aisha just as a precaution. Busses can get a bit full as it is also being used by commuters that reside in suburbs in & around the Haram precincts. Tana’eem / Masjid Aisha & surrounding are generally clean and staff try to keep it up to scratch. Ablution facilities are onsite and some informal traders are also around in the event one someone needing Ihraam clothing & belt etc. Tana’eem / Masjid Aisha accommodates both males & females. So no issues with access. Timing will be crucial for this visit. I found heading off to Tana’eem / Masjid Aisha after Asr , making Salaah of Asr there , is less busy than leaving Makkah before Magrieb. Traffic into Makkah picks up just before Magrieb and tappers off after Isha. Remember The Haram entry doors are “ closed “ 30 minutes before each Waqt / Salaah time for pedestrian control. Try to be back at the Haram before Magrib so that you can complete an Umrah with ease InshaAllah Ameen.

Also known as Aiysha mosque, where the Prophet has asked his wife Aiysha(R) to go and enter into Ihram for Umra, after two rakats of prayer. Situated about 5km from mecca grand mosque, 2 riyal by bus. Very peaceful and serene atmosphere. Very neatly kept and maintained by the authorities.Masha allah. I have visited to this mosque for ihram on all my Umra trips.

Masjid Aisha/Taneem marks the place where Ummul-Mu’mineen Aisha (r.a.) went to enter into Ihram for Umrah when the Prophet (s.a.w.) told her to do so during the farewell Hajj. The masjid lies 7.5 km south from Makkah on the road to Madinah and is the closest of all the boundary points.
It has plenty of praying space - all airconditioned and carpeted, plenty of toilets/showers - for those coming into ihram if they should need it. there are snacks shops, and shops selling ihram and umrah items and even a childrens playground. wide open design and a comfortable hangout.
saptco buses leave for masjid taneem from the bus stop behind dar al tawhid intercontinental (and little way up the road) - costs SR2 per person, but depending on the season, you might have to fight the crowds to get in. may also find some private vans on thr road in front of the bus stop - charging anywhere between SR5-50 per person. most vans can be found on the roads behind safa and marwa - these charge SR5-10 per person. if you want to take a private car, make sure to have people to share it with - costs SR100 to the mosque and SR100 back during peak seasons and SR30per way during off peak seasons.

Visited masjid taneem when I had to enter ihraam while already in Makkah. It's not far from the haram and a taxi took us there and waited for us to take us back to haram. It's not very fancy but really a good mosque. It can be cleaner but this didn't matter since we were not to spend long there, only read salaah and left. Apparently there are showers for those who need to bath as well before entering ihraam, which would make this convenient but bring own towels.
