Istilaam during tawaaf

Fatwaa ID: 2012

السلام عليكم

if final istilaam after final round isnt done , does the round have to be repeated ?

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

In principle, istilaam is a sunnah. If it is left out, then the tawaaf would remain valid. In the enquired situation, there is no need to repeat that round nor the tawaaf. Istighfaar may be made for leaving out a sunnah.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
