Tawaf-ul-Wada` for `Umrah and entering Makkah often without assuming Ihram

Q 2: I went to perform `Umrah (lesser pilgrimage) and I completed all its rituals except for Tawaf-ul-Wada` (circumambulation of the Ka`bah on leaving Makkah). I stayed in Makkah for two days then I traveled without performing Tawaf-ul-Wada` for I had the intention to return to Makkah after a week or less than a week. What is the legal ruling concerning this issue?

A: There is no harm in what you have done as it is not obligatory to perform Tawaf-ul-Wada` after `Umrah and therefore, you are not obliged to offer Damm (The atonement required of a pilgrim for a willful violation of a prohibition or obligation while in the state of Ihram). Q 4: I went to Makkah around ten successive times, however, I did not assume Ihram (ritual state for Hajj and `Umrah) or perform Tawaf (circumambulation) around the Ka`bah for I did not know that a Muslim should assume Ihram and perform Tawaf whenever they go to Makkah. A month later, a friend reminded me that this is obligatory; therefore I went and performed `Umrah. Is there any sin on me? A: If the case is as you have mentioned, there is no sin on you for going to Makkah without assuming Ihram because you did not intend to perform `Umrah in the previous times.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
