The World Federation One Stop Fiqh

Ritual 346

If a pilgrim deliberately falls short of the required rounds in sa’y, be he conversant with the rules or not, he shall be governed by the same rules of him who fails to do sa’y.

If the shortfall was inadvertent, he must rectify the situation whenever he remembers, evidently, whether the decrease was one round or more.

If the lapse is realized after a while, such as remembering mistake made during the sa’y of Umrat-ut-Tamatu’ while he is in Arafat or after the expiry of Thil Hijjah, he must hasten to repeat the sa’y, as a matter of precaution.

If, for any reason, he could not, he must hire an agent to do it for him. As a matter of precaution, the agent must do both – finish the forgotten rounds off and repeat the sa’y.
