Masjid e Taneem is also known as Masjid -e- Ayesha since Prophet Muhammad 's wife Ayesha(R) had put her Ihram from this place once. If some woman who is living in Makkah and wants to perform Umrah then he should go to this place, enter into the state of Ihram and then return to Makkah. [1]

Narrated `Aisha(R):We set out with Allah's Messenger () in the year of his Last Hajj and we mended (the Ihram) for `Umra. Then the Prophet () said, "Whoever has a Hadi with him should assume Ihram for both Hajj and `Umra, and should not finish it till he performs both of the them (Hajj and `Umra)." When we reached Mecca, I had my menses. When we had performed our Hajj, the Prophet () sent me with `Abdur-Rahman to Tan`im and I performed the `Umra. The Prophet () said, "This is in lieu of your missed `Umra." Those who had assumed Ihram for `Umra performed Tawaf (between Safa and Marwa) and then finished their Ihram. And then they performed another Tawaf (between Safa and Marwa) after returning from Mina. And those who had assumed lhram for Hajj and `Umra to get her ( Hajj-Qiran ) performed only one Tawaf (between Safa and Marwa). Sahih al-Bukhari 1638


 A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that she put on Ihram for, Umra and arrived 'at Mecca) but did not circumambulate the House as she had entered in the period of menses, and then put on Ihram for Hajj and performed all the rituals concerning it (except circumambulating the House). The Apostle of Allah () said to her on the day of march (when pilgrims come to Mina): Your circumambulation would suffice both Hajj and Umra. She, however, felt reluctant. Thereupon the Prophet () sent her with 'Abd al-Rahman to Tan'im and she performed Umra (with separate rituals) after Hajj. Sahih Muslim 1211[3] [4]
