Hajj & 'Umrah Made Easy

Salat (Prayer) of tawaf

Salat of tawaf is the third of the obligatory rituals of ‘umrah at-tamattu‘. Once the pilgrim has done the tawaf, he should go towards the Maqam Ibrahim (a.s.) to do the salat of tawaf without any considerable gap between the two rituals – based on obligatory precaution. However, a ten minutes gap for resting in between the tawaf and the salat of tawaf or for finding the proper place for salat would not harm the validity of the tawaf or the salat of tawaf.
