When to Enter State of Ihram While on Airplane?
A man wanted to perform the Hajj or Umrah and put on the Ihram clothing on the airplane. Then he did not know the place of the Miqat, so should he delay entering the state of Ihram once he reaches Jeddah or not?
If he intended the Hajj or Umrah while arriving by air, then he should take a bath in his home and wear the Izar and Rida' Ihram clothing, if he wishes.
So if there is only a little time before approaching the Miqat, he should enter the state of Ihram according to what he intends, whether the Hajj or the Umrah, so there is no difficulty in this.
And if he does not know about the Miqat, then he should ask the pilot of the airplane, one of the hostesses or one of the passengers whom he trusts and who has some experience in this.
And with Allah lies all success and may Allah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him) and his family and his companions.
