Hajj & 'Umrah Made Easy

Tawaf of Hajj

After the pilgrim completes the rituals of Mina, he moves to Mecca (6 k.m. away from Mina) to fulfill the seventh of the obligations of hajj: that is, the tawaf of hajj. Sincere intention and seeking nearness of Allah is an essential condition for tawaf which may be said as follows: “I am doing the tawaf consisting of seven rounds for hajj at-tamattu‘ to seek nearness of Almighty Allah.” Just the thought in mind is sufficient, it is not necessary to say it verbally.
