Question:

A person from South Africa intends going directly to Makkah
Mukarramah either for hajj, ‛umrah or any other reason. Can he tie his
ihram in Jeddah? If he did tie it in Jeddah, will dumm become wajib on
him?

Answer:

If a person intends going directly to Makkah Mukarramah, it is
necessary for him to tie ihram before the miqat. It is a sin to cross the
miqat without ihram. It is not correct to tie the ihram in Jeddah. If he
does, dumm will be wajib and he will be sinning.

Jadid Fiqhi Masa’il:

If a person who is out of the boundaries of the miqat intends travelling
directly to Makkah Mukarramah, it is necessary for him to tie the
ihram before the miqat. Since travelling is by and large via aeroplanes,
the person most probably crosses Qarn-e-Manazil and Yalamlam, both
of which are miqats. It is difficult to gauge at which point the
aeroplane is in line with the miqat. The pilgrims should therefore tie
their ihram at the beginning of their journey. However, those who
intend going to Madinah Munawwarah first, they will not tie ihram
because their journey to the Haram will not be from the miqat. The
ihram is prescribed for those who are heading for the Haram from the
miqat.1

Allah ta‛ala knows best.
