What is the ruling of somebody
that went for Hajj and did not
perform Tawaaf Al-Wadaa'?

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His slave and
Performing the farewell Tawaf
(circumambulation) is an obligation on
the pilgrim after finishing his rituals of
Hajj and upon his departure from
Makkah according to the majority of
scholars [the Hanafi, Shafi'ee, Hanbali
and others ].

However, women in menses or in
confinement period after giving birth
are exempted from this rite. The
evidence about this is what Ibn 'Abbas
narrated that the Prophet
ordered the people to perform Tawaf as
the last rite of Hajj before leaving
Makkah, but he did not include women
in menstruation. [Al-Bukhari]
Therefore, whoever has not performed
the farewell Tawaf out of forgetfulness
or ignorance has to offer a sacrifice
and there is no sin on him. However, if
one has deliberately neglected to
perform it then he has to offer a
sacrifice and he is sinful if he travels
from Makkah more than the distance of
shortening the prayer which is 83 km.
Nonetheless, his Hajj is acceptable in all
cases provided he did what he was
obliged to do during Hajj.
Imam An-Nawawi said: 'If one
leaves Makkah without performing the
farewell Tawaaf, he is sinful because it
is an obligation and he has to come
back to perform it if he has not yet
travelled the distance of shortening the
prayer. However, if he has already
exceeded the distance of shortening the
prayer, he does not have to come back
but he has to offer a sacrifice.'
Moreover, Imam Al-Khiraqi said:
'If he leaves Makkah before performing
the farewell Tawaaf he has to come
back if he is not too far, but if he is
too far, he has to offer a sacrifice and
distribute it amongst the poor in

Therefore, whoever has not performed
the farewell Tawaf has to offer a
sacrifice which is a sheep that should
be slaughtered in Makkah and
distributed to its poor people.
Allah Knows best.
