TAWAAF-E-VIDA OR FAREWELL TAWAAF

AFTER HAJJ

Return from Mina to Makkah Mukarrama on 12th or 13th afternoon. Now your Hajj is complete. According to Hadis, whosoever performed Haij solely for Allah and did not resort to any lewdness or abuse, he returns from Hajj as innocent and sinless as he was on the day he was born. All your past sins are forgiven and you are like a newly born baby.

You are entering into a new phase of life. You should not forget the Benevolence of Allah, who selected you from among the millions of Muslims and honored you with the visit of His Holy House, the Abode of Prophets. You should not forget the promises made by you in Arafat to lead a pious life.

Now you are well aware of your responsibilities. If you will commit sins again, it will not only degrade you but also reflect on the whole society. After Hajj you should devote your maximum time to prayers in Makkah Mukarrama.

Nafl Umrah may be performed for your parents, relatives, teachers and offspring, dead or alive. in order to perform Nafl Umrah you have to perform Gusl then taking your Ahram you go to Masjid-e-Ayesha. There you put on the Ahram, offer two raka’at Nafl of Umrah and then come back to Haram Sharif and perform Tawaaf (with Iztibah and Ramal), Saee and Halaq Make intention for Umrah in the follow- ing words

AL-LAA-HUM-MA IN-NEE U-REE DUL UM-RAH O FA-YAS-SIR-HAA- LEE WA TA-QAB-BAL-HAA MIN- NEE O WA A-IN-NEE A-LAI-HAA WA BAA-RIK-LEE FEE-HAA NA- VAI-TUL UM-RA-TA WA AH-RAM- TU BI-HAA LIL-LAA-HI TA-AA- LAA

O, Allah! I have made the intention to perform Umrah, ease it for me and accept it from me and help me (to perform it) and make it full of blessings for me. I make the intention for Umrah and with it, I have put on the Ahram for the sake of Allah Ta’ala.

Similarly, Nafl Tawaaf may be performed for them. At least one full recitation of Qur’an may be completed during this period. Nafl Namaaz may also be offered for yourself. Be particular for five times Namaaz. (Do not forget that one Namaaz offered in Haram is equal to one hundred thousand Namaaz offered elsewhere)

TAWAAF-E-VIDA OR FAREWELL TAWAAF

When you decide finally to depart from Makkah Mukarrama and Haram, perform a farewell Tawaaf with full devotion Tears will well up in your eyes when you think that the Haram, the Ka’aba Multazim, Maqaam-e-Ibrahim, and Zamzam will be lost to you forever. Now you will be deprived of all this benevolence. Call Allah with tears in your eyes and sobbing voice at Multazim and say:

O, my Lord! I am Thy humble servant. It is Thy sheer benevolence that Thou called me here. O, my Lord! Call me here again and again. And record these words today at this Sacred Place. That I proclaim with my full belief and conscience. And from the depth of my heart.

My truth and the eternal truth. That there is none worthy of worship except Allah and Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) is His Messenger. O my Lord, record these words with the witness of the entire universe. O my Lord, bring me back again to this Sacred Place.

And if I could not come back again then preserve my covenant up to the Day of Resurrection. And make it a proof of my deliverance. O my Lord Allah, Bless me with thy pleasure. And guide me to lead to Thy Prophet, Peace be upon him, his offsprings and Companions After completing Tawaaf-e-Vida and for drinking Zamzam finally return to Hajar e-Aswad and kiss it thrice the last time with full reverence and love and return from it taking a last glance and reciting the following prayer:

AT-TA-BI-OO-NA HA- MI-DU A-LAA RA-BI- BI-NAA HAA-MI-DU NAA SA-DA-QAL LAA-HU WA DA-HU WA NA-SA-RA AB-DA- HU WA HA-ZA-MAL AH-ZA-BI WAD DA-HU We are) among those: who came, those who repented, prayed and Praised Allah, our Lord Who fulfilled His promise and gave victory to His servant. And defeated His foes alone.
