I live in the
City of Ta'if.
Every two or three months I perform `Umrah. Is Tawaf-ul-Wada` (circumambulation of the Ka`bah on leaving Makkah) obligatory on me after performing every `Umrah, or not?
A: Scholars held different opinions concerning the proper interpretation of the Prophet's statement:
'None should leave (Makkah) until the last thing he does is to circumambulate the Ka`bah.’”
Some held that it refers only to those who leave
Makkah after the rituals of Hajj. Others maintain that it refers to whoever completes Hajj, `Umrah, or whoever leaves
Makkah regardless of the religious rites. (Part No. 11; Page No. 336) Therefore, if you perform `Umrah in the future, you shall make Tawaf Al-Wada` as a sort of precaution and to reconcile between the two opinions.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
