Ritual 420

If a man deliberately fails to perform Tawaf-un-Nisa – regardless of whether or not he did it inadvertently or was aware of the rule – his wife is forbidden to him, until it is performed.

If it proves difficult for him to perform it himself, he can hire an agent to do it for him. When the agent has performed it on his behalf, he shall be in a position to resume intimacy with his wife.

If he dies before performing it, and his eldest son performs it on his behalf, the obligation is met. Otherwise it must, as a matter of precaution, be performed qadha. The expenses must be met from the shares of the adult heirs, with their approval.
