A man came unprepared for ‘umrah

Fatwaa ID: 533

Salam. If a man doesn’t have a ihram to wear and will pass miqat. Should he do niyat n wear the ihram when he reaches his hotel in Makkah?
Can he not do nyat when he passes the meeqat and the once he wears his ihram in the hotel go to masjid Aisha and then do nyat for Umrah?
Can men wear Crocs in iharm?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

  1. If a person crosses the meeqaat without donning the ihraam and thereafter dons it at a later point, he will have to offer dam. However, if he returns to a meeqaat and dons the ihraam from there, then the dam will be waived. It should be noted that Masjid ‘Aaishah is not a meeqaat for an aafaaqi. The closest meeqaat would be Qarn al-Manaazil, the meeqaat of the people of Taaif.
  2. Crocs are not ihraam friendly according to the Hanafi legal school. They may not be worn while in the state of ihraam. You may refer to the following fatwaa for details on ihraam friendly footwear.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
