How many times does one make Istilaam in Tawaaf?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by TheMufti.com

Q. AS SALAAMU ALAIKUM Mufti Saib When performing Wajib or Nafil Tawaaf after completing the seventh circuit do I need to make the eight ISTILAM or just 7 ISLILAM JAZAKULLAH


A. It is Sunnah to commence and complete the Tawaaf with Istilaam. Hence, after completing the seventh circuit of Tawaaf, one will make Istilaam for the eighth time, whether one is in the state of Ihraam (i.e. one is doing the Tawaaf of Umrah/Hajj) or one is out of the state of Ihraam (i.e. one is doing a Nafl Tawaaf). (Shaami 2/498)
