Question

Are we allowed to say the 'Umrah Niyyah
(intention) in the plane while crossing the
Meeqaat. If yes, then how about the 2
rak'ahs of Ihraam prayer, can it be done
after landing in the Jeddah airport? I am
asking this question for my kids who are 3
and 7 years old.

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

If a person travels by plane for Hajj or
‘Umrah, he/she should assume the state of
Ihraam when he nears the Meeqaat by which
he will pass. He may perform the two
Rak’ahs of Ihraam while in the plane; the
Prophet used to pray supererogatory
prayers while riding his camel wherever it
heads – meaning it is not obligatory that he
faces the Qiblah. It is also acceptable for a
person to perform these two Rak’ahs before
boarding the plane.

It should be mentioned that the two Rak’ahs
of Ihraam are a Sunnah (an optional act) and
not an obligation; this is the preponderant
opinion of the scholars . Moreover,
some scholars are of the view that
they are not legislated at all.
It should also be mentioned that it is the
guardian of the child who should make the
intention for him [child] entering the state of
Ihraam. For instance, he should say when
making him enter the state of Ihraam: ‘‘ I
have the intention of making this child enter
the state of Ihraam for ‘Umrah. ’’ He then
should make him perform all the rituals and
not cover his head and deprive him of form-
fitting clothes if he is a boy, and if it is a
girl, one should uncover her face and hands,
and one should make them avoid all the
restrictions of Ihraam, and make them
perform Tawaaf and Sa’i. Then, one should
shave his hair or trim it, and if it is a girl,
one should only trim her hair; in this case,
the child would have completed his/her
‘Umrah.

Allah Knows best.
