Umrah Questions

Assalamu alaikum,

I am going for Umrah from Toronto Canada in 2 weeks inshallah. Since this will be my first Umrah and my first visits to Saudi Arabia I have following questions:

• I will reach Jeddah around 7:00 PM and then I am planning to go to Mekkah and I have not booked any hotel. I am planning to book it there myself. Any recommendations on how to get to Mekkah and book cheap hotels (which one?)

• If I want to perform 2nd Umrah and I am staying in Makah then what place is miqat for my 2nd Umrah

• If I am stying in Medina and I want to perform 3rd Umrah then what place is miqat for my 3rd Umrah

• Do I have to perfume Tawaf Al-Ifadah

• If I want to perform 2nd Umrah and I am staying in Makah then what place is miqat for my 2nd Umrah

you can either go to jaranah, masjid hudaibiah or tanaim/taneem (you can go here by bus or taxi). tanaim is the nearest miqat

• If I am stying in Medina and I want to perform 3rd Umrah then what place is miqat for my 3rd Umrah

the miqat for those coming from madinah is Dhul-Hulayfah (or more commonly known as bir ali)

Tawaf al Ifadah is only performed by hajjis during Hajj.

Upon leaving Makkah, a pilgrim's last act should be Tawaf al Wida, or the farewell tawaf. This is to be done after Hajj & Umrah.

Ws I suggest you book a hotel before going to Makkah as this is the peak season and getting a hotel upon arrival would be difficult if not impossible. You would be in ihram, really tired of the journey plus you would be eager to go and perform umrah and in this setting if you add the havoc of finding a suitable hotel then it would be too much to add to your plate. Its better you get a hotel before hand, don't go for starred hotels but find a one which is near haram. You can get a number of economical hotels on Ibrahim khaleel road which are just 5 mins from the haram like burj sultan.
