Need guidance. I am on the way to Jeddah for Umrah inshallah. Where should I do my intention? Airport? Jeddah Airport? Right now I am at work. And planning to go straight to airport from work.
According the book “Naqshbandi Awrad of Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil al-Haqqani“:
One states the intention to go for Hajj before the 8th of Dhul-Hijjah, or before arriving at the location (al-mīqāt) for dressing in the Ihrām, whichever comes first. Intention should normally be made before starting one’s trip, or at least one hour by plane from arrival at Jeddah. If coming by land from outside the Hijāz, it is recommended to make intention before setting out.
Before you enter into travel, take a shower and pray two rak‘ats niyyatu ‘l-Hajj, according to the Prophet (s) who said, “The best that a servant can put behind him when he travels to take care of his family, are two rak‘ats that he prays before he sets forth on his travel; they which will be like his deputy during his absence [calipha].”
