Assuming the state of ihraam before reaching the meeqaat
*Please appropriately reference this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Question: Is it permissible for the Muslim to assume the [state of] ihraam for the 'umrah before [reaching] the meeqaat?

Response: This is not permissible, as [has been] authentically reported from [al-Imaam] Maalik who issued a verdict that that was transgressing against the Sunnah of the Messenger (sal-Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam).
