Is there a penalty for not performing Tawaaf in the state of Wudhu? 

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q. I was in Ihraam of Umrah and I made my Tawaaf and Saee of Umrah without Wudhu. Then I found out that my Tawaaf and Saee was not valid so I repeated my Tawaaf and Saee with Wudhu. Is there any penalty for the first Tawaaf and Saee that was done without Wudhu. Keep in mind that I repeated it?

A. It is necessary for a person to be in a state of Wudhu whilst performing the Tawaaf of Umrah. However, it is not necessary for a person to be in state of Wudhu to perform the Saee of Umrah. If a person did not perform the Tawaaf of Umrah in the state of Wudhu, then the Tawaaf of Umrah would have to be repeated.

In the enquired case, as you had repeated your Tawaaf of Umrah in the state of Wudhu due the performance of Tawaaf  being invalid as you did not perform it in the state of Wudhu, your Umrah is valid and there is no penalty for it. (Al Barur-Raaiq 3/23)
