Can one perform a second/Nafl Tawaaf after the Tawaaf of Umrah but before the Saee’ of Umrah? 

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by TheMufti.com

Q. Can I do a Nafl Tawaaf after the Tawaaf of Umrah and before the Saee of Umrah? It is difficult to find place at times, in the Mataaf for a Nafl Tawaaf with the construction/work in and around the Mataaf area.


A. It is Sunnah to follow-up the Tawwaf of Umrah with the Saee’ of Umrah without any delay. To delay the Saee’ of Umrah by performing a Nafl Tawaaf after the Tawaaf of Umrah will be Makrooh. (Muallimul Hujjaaj 149)

As such, you will have to postpone the Nafl Tawaaf for a later stage and perform it on the Mataaf level or above it, whenever it is suitable.
