Ritual 285

If in the course of tawaf, the pilgrim, in a state of ihram, passes wind, urine or stool, the situation could take different hues:

• if he does so before completing the fourth round, the tawaf is invalid and he must repeat it after performing wudhu;

• if it occurs involuntarily, after completing the fourth round, he must interrupt the tawaf, perform wudhu and complete the tawaf from where he had interrupted it;

• if the occurrence, after completing the fourth round, was by choice, as a matter of precaution, he must complete the tawaf, after performing wudhu, and repeat it as well.
