If Tawaf is done incorrectly in ihraam then does one need to repeat the tawaf or penelty alone suffices?


If someone perform tawaf e ziyara with pollution, menses and returned home, then of course she will  have  to offer a badana (camel/ cow). I want to know beside offering badana , does she still require to go Holy Mecca and repeat tawaf e ziyara ?


Assalāmu `alaikum Warahmatullāhi Wabrakatuh,

In principle, once a person pays penalty for a wrong committed in ihram (jinaayat) and the penalty (dam) has been paid, that is sufficient. The tawaaf does not have to be repeated.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best,
