The cases where tawaf after interruption is resumed from where left off, I want to be clarified about the resumption spot .


The cases  where tawaf after interruption  is resumed from where left off, I want to be clarified about the resumption spot . If someone perform tawaf at the second floor, then  interruption occurs .Now tell me ,can’t he resume his tawaf on the mataf area near Holy kaba as close as possible and of course at the parallel equivalent spot aligned with the spot before interruption ?


Assalāmu `alaikum Warahmatullāhi Wabrakatuh,

If one resumes the tawaaf at the parallel spot on the bottom floor, that will be in order.

And Allah Ta'āla Knows Best,
