Praise be to Allaah.
If you set out for ‘Umrah from Jeddah, then enter ihram
from Jeddah; if you decide to do it when you are in al-Qunfudhah, then you
should enter ihram from the miqaat of the people of Yemen (al-Sa’diyyah).
You do not have the right to shorten the prayers in your city, because it
is your homeland. Rather you have to offer the prayers in full. Similarly,
in Jeddah you have to offer the prayers in full, according to the majority
of scholars, because you intend to stay there for more than four days.
And Allah is the source of strength; may Allah send blessings
and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and Companions. End
