26th of Rajab, Nafl Tawaaf

Fatwaa ID: 623

Assalamu Alaikum wrwb.
1- Are there any acts of ibadah that are to be done on the 26th of Rajab ?
2- Can someone do nafil tawaf on behalf of a living family member?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

  1. No. There is no significance of the 26th of Rajab. It is just like any other day. To anything extra on this day while considering it to be virtuous is a bid’ah.
  2. Yes. Nafl tawaaf may be done on behalf of living family member. The rewards will reach them.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
