Question: What is the ruling about the one who was in Minaa before the Day of Tarwiyyah (8th of Dhul Hijjah)?
Does he enter Makkah and enter the state of ihraam [there] or does he enter the state of ihraam in Minaa?
Response: For the one who is in Minaa, it is legislated for him to enter the state of ihraam in Minaa and all Praise is for Allaah. There is no need to enter Makkah, rather he should pronounce the talbiyah for the Hajj from where he is, if its time has arrived.
