Ritual 286

Before commencing the tawaf, a pilgrim may harbour a doubt as to whether he is tahir.He may remember having performed wudhu.Yet,the doubt relates to whether wudhuwas subsequently broken.He should ignore the doubt;otherwise, it will be obligatory on him to finishtawaf off, after performing wudhu.

However, if that doubt arises in the course oftawaf, and if he remembers having performed wudhu before, the ruling is as already stated. Conversely, if the doubt arises before completing the fourth round, he must perform wudhu and repeat tawaf.Otherwise,he must interrupttawaf, perform wudhu and complete what was left of tawaf rounds.
