Missing a Circuit in Tawaf

CategoriesHajj & Umrah [196]

Fatwa ID: 03487

Answered by: Shaykh Umer Khan​


Mufti Saab. My cousin did her Tawaf and later realized she only did 6 rounds and didn't complete the 7th one. How does she make up for that?

For missing one round from the ṭawāf, a sadaqah equivalent to half a measure of ṣāʻ of wheat would need to be distributed to the poor [1]. Contemporary scholars have a difference of opinion with regards to how much half a ṣāʻ is equivalent to with the safest opinion being that it is approximately 2.32 kilograms.
