Masjid e Aisha, commonly referred to as Masjid e Taneem or Taneem Mosque, is a well-known location for travelers doing the Umrah and Hajj pilgrimages. It is named after Aisha, the wife of the Prophet Muhammad, who performed her Umrah pilgrimage while menstruation by entering Ihram in this mosque.

The Prophet gave her the go-ahead to perform Hajj and all other pilgrimage rituals and duties except Tawaf. She followed the directions and didn't finish Tawaf until her period was through.

The Prophet then instructed her brother to drive her to Taneem. She then continued with her Umrah pilgrimage in the Islamic calendar month of Dhul Hijjah, which is the twelfth month.

The history of the Masjid e Aisha explains why it is a Miqat, or location, for wearing in Ihram attire. The mosque is well-equipped with restrooms and showers for everyone, and there are frequently vendors selling Ihram garments and necessities like money belts and slippers all around it.


When conducting the Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages, one must enter the holy state of ihram. Depending on their route of travel, Muslims must change into Ihram attire at one of the designated Miqat. For those in Makkah for the holy pilgrimages of Umrah and Hajj, Masjid Aisha acts as a Miqat. Additionally, before their second Umrah, Muslims who wish to do two Umrahs on the same pilgrimage should leave Masjid Al-Haram and renew their ihram in Masjid Aisha.


Masjid-e-Aisha is located in the Al Hil neighborhood, which is about 5 miles from the Kaaba in Taneem, the House of God.

The area surrounding Masjid-e-Aisha is reserved for travelers making the Hajj or Umrah. To satisfy the pilgrim's obligation to travel, one should journey to Masjid-e-Aisha, enter the state of Ihram, and then return to Makkah.

You can go to Masjid Aisha, to begin with, the state of Ihram if you want to complete the Umrah ritual more than once.

There are two entrance doors to this lovely mosque, one for men and one for women, and it has a serene atmosphere.

This mosque includes enough space for both women and men to change into Ihram clothing, from changing rooms to the bathing area.

Masjid-e-Aisha in Makkah is a significant Islamic site. It is also known as Masjid e Umra on occasion. It is one of the most significant locations to see in Makkah during the Umrah because of its stunning architecture and profound history.
