Tying ihraam from Madinah Munawwarah

Q: I frequently travel to Saudi Arabia. What if I decide to do umrah one day from Dammam to Madinah. Do I need to wear ihram from my house/hotel in Dammam or can I wear the ihram at Dammam airport also.

A: If you travel from Dammaam to Madinah Munawwarah and thereafter from Madina Munawarah to Makkah Mukarramah, you do not have to put on the ihraam from your home or the airport of Dammaam. You can put on the ihraam when you travel from Madinah Munawwarah to Makkah Mukarramah.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
