Miqaat for People Traveling by Air

Dear Brother

I will be coming from Germany by Saudi Arabian Airline to perform U’mrah. I don’t know when to wear Ehraam. Someone told me that you must have to have it during Air Space of Meeqat and its usually announced in Saudi Airlines. Can you please explain?

Saudi Airline announces 15-20 minutes before reaching at Meeqat. You can wear Ehraam at that time. When they announce about reaching at the Miqaat point, you can say لبيك اللهم لبيك، لبيك لا شريك لك لبيك، ان الحمد والنعمة لك والملك، لا شريك لك . At this time, you can intend for U’mrah.

You can also know it in advance by following the tracking map shown on the screen of the aircraft. See the following map to identify the Miqaat Zone.
