Supplications to say while doing the Tawaf


There are numerous supplications to read while circling the Ka’bah in Tawaf. It is recommended to recite a Salawaat every time you pass the door of the Ka’bah.


1. When you get between al-Rukn al-Yamani and the Black Stone, you can read:

Rabbana aatina fil dunya hasana wa fil akhiratihasana wa qina ‘adhab al-nar.

O Lord, grant us good in this world and good in the hereafter, and save us from the punishment of Hellfire.


2. While doing Tawaf, say:

Allahumma inni ilaika faqir wa inni kha`if mustajir fa la tughayyir jismi wa la tubaddil ismi.

O God I am in destitute of You, and I am fearful and in desperate need of refuge, so do not change my body or change my name.


3. Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq (a.s) said: If you finish from your Tawaf and reached the back of the Ka’bah, which is the place of al-Mustajaar just before al-Rukn al-Yamani, put your hand on the House and press your body and cheek onto it and say:

Allahumma al-baytu baytuk wa al-‘abdu abduk wa hadha makan al-‘aa`idhu bika min al-naar.

O God, this House is Your House, and this servant is Your servant, and this is the place of one who takes refuge to You from Hellfire.


After finishing the seven cycles of the Tawaf, the pilgrim must pray the prayer of Tawaf behind Maqam Ibrahim (a.s), and the prayer is two ra’kahs like morning prayers.


4. It is recommended to drink from Zamzam water, before leaving to the Sa’i of Safa and Marwah, and to say:

Allahumma ij’alhu ‘ilman nafi’an wa rizqan wasi’an wa shifa` min kulli da` wa suqm.

O God, make it benefiting knowledge, vast sustenance, and a cure for every sickness and bad health. Then the pilgrim should head towards the Black Stone and then go to a-Safa.
