Topic/Issue:3551 - circumambulation without purification --
Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
Imam Malik,Imam ShafiNot valid to circumambulate without purification, whether it is done intentionally or due to forgetfulness.Their reliance is upon the words of the Prophet (God's peace and blessings be upon him) to a menstruating woman, who was Asma bint Umays, "Do what the pilgrims are doing but do not make the circumambulation of the House". They also use the narration "Circumambulation is prayer, except that Alläh has permitted speech in it, so do not utter anything but what is good"
Imam Abu HanifaIts valid but repetition is desirable. Person is liable for atonement The reliance of those who permitted circumambulation without purification is upon the consensus of the jurists about the permissibility of say between al-Safa and al-Marwa without purification. They argue that purity from menstruation is stipulated for a type of worship, and it does not follow that purity from hadath would also he stipulated.
