I've been making some progress on planning for hajj insha Allah. For reasons discussed earlier, we will need to join our hajj group (from the US) en route since we're stopping in UAE. One of the tour groups is going to Madina first, then to Makkah for hajj, then leaving out of Jeddah. They told me it wouldn't be difficult for me to meet the group in Madinah.
My question is, in others' experience, is this going to be feasible without a large amount of hassle? I wouldn't want to meet up with a group in Jeddah due to the sheer chaos, but would meeting in Madina be indeed pretty straightforward?
jazakumallahu khair for any advice,
