The Long Tawaaf (Hadith No. 1392)


Volume 2, Book 26, Number 692:

Narrated Um Salama (the wife of the Prophet) (radiallaahu `anhaa):

I informed Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) (about my illness). (Through other sub-narrators, Um Salama (radiallaahu `anhaa) narrated that when Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was at Mecca and had just decided to leave (Mecca) while she had not yet done Tawaf of the Kaba (and after listening to her). The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “When the morning prayer is established, perform the Tawaf on your camel while the people are in prayer.” So she did the same and did not offer the two Rakat of Tawaf until she came out of the Mosque.

This means she performed tawaaf behind the people who were praying, in a longer circuit. I just found myself a daleel for performing tawaaf on the upper floors of haram. :D

Also, I’d like to make a correction here. In Hadith No. 1386, I mentioned a similar Hadith thinking it meant Umm Salamah (radiallaahu `anhaa) was told to ‘follow’ someone in tawaaf. Now I realize it meant she could circumambulate ‘behind’ people while they were praying in congregation. Alhamdulillah. (y)


Hajj – Tawaaf al-Ifaadhah (Hadith No. 1391)


Volume 2, Book 26, Number 691:

Narrated Ibn Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) arrived at Mecca and performed Tawaf of the Kaba and Sa’i between Safa and Marwa, but he did not go near the Kaba after his Tawaf till he returned from Arafat.

The first one is called Tawaaf al-Qudoom and the one after `Arafaat is Tawaaf al-ifaadah during Hajj, which is also called tawaaf al-ziyaarah (tawaaf of visiting). It takes place after the standing in ‘Arafah, on the day of al-Adha or after it. It is one of the pillars or essential parts of the Hajj.
