Related to the older query, Sir Just tell me whether my duty (obligation of tawaf) is discharged or not, as I offered salat al Tawaf after Maghrib sunnah/nafl.


Dear Mufti sb Assalamu laikum wa rah. wa barkatuhu
I am very much thankful that You replied so early regarding subject  #26935 Fatwa ID: 19198 (It would be better for you to have performed the two rakāt wājib salāh [salat al tawaf]after the maghrib salāh and before the sunnats of maghrib salāh...... )
Sir Just tell me whether my duty (obligation of tawaf) is discharged or not, as I offered salat al Tawaf after Maghrib sunnah/nafl. 


Assalāmu `alaikum Warahmatullāhi Wabrakatuh,

It is our good fortune to serve you and the Ummah for the pleasure of Allah.

The Tawāf is discharged and valid. The two rakāts wājib after tawāf performed after Subah Sādiq is valid.

And Allah Ta'āla Knows Best,


Muftī Ebrahim Desai
