I am a Yemeni citizen traveling from Yemen to Malaysia but the flight goes like this :

From Yemen to Oman by Yemenia Airlines And then after 4 hours from Oman to Malaysia by Airasia

I don't have visa for Oman is that okay? This is not transit: it's two flights. As far as I know I have to pass the immigration check then get the baggage then I go to the departure and check in from there but how would I do that when I don't have visa?

    What's your nationality? This makes a huge difference!

You should be fine.

For transits of less than 6 hours such as your case you don't need a visa, as long as you have proof of onward travel, according to the Timatic tool on Emirates' website.

Transit - Oman (OM) Visa
Visa required.
TWOV (Transit Without Visa):
Holders of onward tickets for a max. transit time of 6 hours.
Visa Issuance:
Passengers in transit for longer than 6 hours, can obtain a single transit visa on arrival for a maximum stay of 72 hours if they have confirmation from the airline that a visa has been approved before departure.
