Forgot how many rounds of Sa’ee

Fatwaa ID: 1676

السلام عليكم
What to read while doing tawaf

If someone forgets If they did 5 or 7 rounds in سعي what should be done

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

In principle, the first four circuits of Sa’ee are fardh while the last three are waajib. If one forgets if he did 5 or 7 circuits while he is doing it, then he should take the lesser number and complete the remainder. If one doubts afterwards, then he should give Sadaqah for the two circuits he is doubting. Sadaqah for each missed circuit is approximately SAR 15. Istighfaar should be made as well.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
