Idtibaa

Idtibaa

Before commencing the Tawaaf, make Idtibaa, i.e. the covering of the body in a manner that the left shoulder, left arm and back are covered and the right arm entirely exposed. Discontinue with the Idtibaa after the Tawaaf has been completed. The two Rak’aat Waajib Salaah should NOT be performed with the arm exposed (i.e. with Idtibaa).
