Al-Shajara Mosque

From WikiHaj

Al-Shajara Mosque (المسجد الشجرة) is one of the miqats situated in the region of Dhu l-Hulayfa (ذوالحليفة) near the holy city of Medina and this is the place to wear ihram for the people who go to Mecca via holy city of Medina.

It is not permissible to delay in wearing ihram from al-Shajara Mosque to Juhfa unless an urgent situation arises such as a disease, weakness or other genuine excuses. Wearing ihram outside the al-Shajarah Mosque is not valid but wearing ihram in any part of the mosque, even in the new extended parts is considered sufficient and valid.
