Performing tawaaf on the ground floor

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. What is the best time for tawaf without rush, so that I can avoid getting touched by men?

2. Also, should we perform tawaf on the ground floor, or on the floors above?



1. We are not aware of this. You may refer to someone who is more familiar.

2. Obviously, the closer you will be to the Ka`bah the virtue will be greater. The closest is the ground floor.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
