Ritual 316

A pilgrim may be sure of having performed seven rounds, yet he entertains a doubt as to whether there was any addition, such as doubting if the last round was the eighth. Such a doubt should be ignored; accordingly the tawaf is valid.

If, however, the doubt arises before the last round is completed, evidently the tawaf is invalid. The last round should, as a matter of ihtiyat, be completed and the tawaf repeated.
