Starting at al-Hajarul-Aswad 1, men only - uncover right shoulder by placing Ihraam underneath right arm-pit. When beginning each circuit, make a sign with your right hand towards al-Hajarul-Aswad 2, and recite -

( Allaahu Akbar ) Make seven circuits of Kabah 3 (for first three circuits only, men only - swiftly walk around the Kabah; Then begin fourth circuit, walking at normal pace completely around and finish until seventh circuit).

During each circuit, whilst between ar-Ruknul-Yamaanee 4 and al-Hajarul-Aswad, recite -

Rabbanaa aatinaa fid-dunyaa hasanatan wa feel aakhirati hasanatan wa qinaa 'adhaaban naar

(Our Lord! Give us good in this world and good in the Hereafter, and defend us from the torment of the Fire.) [Soorat-ul-Baqarah ayah 201]

Cover right shoulder, then go behind Station of Ibraaheem and recite -

Wattakhidhoo min-maqaami ibraaheema musalla
(And take ye the Station of Abraham as a place of prayer.) [Soorat-ul-Baqarah ayah 125] Behind Station of Ibraaheem - if possible, otherwise anywhere within al-Masjidul-Haraam: Pray two rakaah naafilah; In first rakaah recite Soorah al-Kaafiroon and in second rakaah, Soorah alIkhlaas. Then go to Zam-Zam well and drink from it, then pour some water over head.

Return to al-Hajarul-Aswad and make a sign with your right hand towards it for the last time 2, and recite -

( Allaahu Akbar )

Begin Saee at as-Safaa. At foot of as-Safaa recite -

Innas-safaa wal marwata min sha'aa'irillaahi faman hajjal baita 'awi`tamara falaa janaaha 'alaihi an yattawwafa bihimaa wa man tatawwa'a khiran fa'innallaaha shaakirun 'aleemun [Soorat-ul-Baqarah ayah 158] (Behold! Safa and Marwa are among the Symbols of Allah. So if those who visit the House in the Season or at other times should compass them round, it is no sin in them, and if any one obeys his own impulse to good, be sure that Allaah is He Who recognises and knows.)

and says: Nabda'u bimaa bada'allaahu bihi (We begin with what Allaah began with.)

Each time upon as-Safaa and al-Marwah facing Kabah, recite -

Allaahu akbar allaahu akbar allaahu akbar - laa illaaha illallahu wahdau laa shareekalahu - lahul mul ku wa lahul hamdu - yuheeu wa yumeetu wa huwa 'alaa kulli shai'in qadeer - laa ilaaha illallahu wahdahu laa shareekalahu - anjaza wa'dahu wa nasara ' abdahu wa hazamal ahzaaba wahdahu
- Saying that three times and making du'aa after each time.(55) Complete walk from as-Safaa to al-Marwah 5 (one circuit), then al-Marwah to as-Safaa (second circuit) and continue for seven circuits, finishing at al-Marwah. Upon encountering green lights, men only - run from one light to other light.

Upon leaving al-Masjidul-Haraam with the left foot, recite -

Allaahuma salli 'alla muhammadin wa sallim - allaahumma innee 'as'aluka min fadhlika
(O Allaah send blessings and peace upon Muhammad. O Allaah I ask You for Your bounty.)

Finally, men: shave head - best, or cut hair equally from all over head; women: cut one-third finger length of hair. Footnotes 1. If possible, cling to area between the corner of al-Hajarul-Aswad and the door, placing the chest, face and forearms upon this area. 2. If possible, touch al-Hajarul-Aswad with the right hand and also kiss al-Hajarul-Aswad, then prostrate on it - this is best; if not, then touch it with the right hand then kiss the right hand; if not, simply make a sign towards it with the right hand. 3. There is no specific duaa during the walk around the Kabah, apart from what has been mentioned for between ar-Ruknul-Yamaanee to al-Hajarul-Aswad. You can therefore recite the Quraan or any duaa as you please. 4. If possible, touch ar-Ruknul-Yamaanee each time (but do not kiss it) - this is best; if not, then do not make any sign towards it. 5.Between the walk from as-Safaa to al-Marwah and al-Marwah to as-Safaa, it is permissable to recite -

Rabbighfir warham innaka antal a'azzul akram

(O lord forgive and have mercy,verily You are the Most Mighty, Most Noble) then there is no harm as it is authentically reported from a group of the Salaf.(60)
