Nasihah (Advice): The Sahabah Radhiyallahu Anhum’s Love for the Sunnah
Katheer Bin Jumhaan reports: I saw Ibn Umar (Radhiyallahu Anhuma) walking between As-Safa and Al-Marwah. I said: “Are you walking?” He said: “If I am walking, I am walking because I saw Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam walking, and if I hasten, I hasten because I saw Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam hasten” (Musnad Ahmad)
Question and Answer:
- Can I do a Nafl Tawaaf after the Tawaaf of Umrah and before the Saee of Umrah? It is difficult to find place in the Mataaf for a Nafl Tawaaf with the construction in and around the Mataaf area.
(Question published as received)
- It is Sunnah to follow-up the Tawaaf of Umrah with the Saee’ of Umrah without any delay. To delay the Saee’ of Umrah by performing a Nafl Tawaaf after the Tawaaf of Umrah will be Makrooh. (Muallimul Hujjaaj 149)
As such, you will have to postpone the Nafl Tawaaf for a later stage and perform it on the Mataaf level or above it, whenever it is suitable.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
