Q 7: A person was performing Tawaf and before completing the fifth round, the Iqamah (call to start the Prayer) was called, and as such, he performed the congregational Salah and then began to complete his rounds of Tawaf. Should this person complete the rounds of Tawaf from the point where he stopped, or start all over again, beginning from Al-Hajar Al-Aswad (the Black Stone in a corner of the Ka`bah)?

A: The correct view in this case is that he does not cancel the fifth round; rather, he should complete it from where he stopped due to his Salah with the Imam.

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions!
