    Title: salat al tawaf

    Question: In reference to fatwa (Fatwa: 211/252/L=1432 Q No 29632) it is forbidden to offer any other nafl salah from dawn to sunrise other than sunnah of Fajr salah. Hence,it is not right to offer Salat al-Tawaf after dawn. Sir, I want to ask that salat al tawaf is wajib salah and not nafl salah ,so why it is not right to offer it after dawn (subah sadiq) but before fajr salah ? We had offered salat al tawaf after dawn but before fajr salah then whether our duty is discharged or not. If not what should we do now ?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 987/594/L=1432) Actually salat al-tawaf is nafl but it is wajib due to tawaf, this salah is not wajib in itself rather it is wajib due to tawaf. However, if you performed salat al-tawaf after dawn, you fulfilled it; because nafl salah becomes valid in such times with being makrooh tahrimi. وكره نفل .... والكراهة هنا تحريمية ...... والمراد عدم الحل لا عدم الصحة كما لا يخفى وقوله وكل ما كان واجبا أى كان ملحقاً بالنفل بأن ثبت وجوبه بعارض بعد ما كان نفلا (در مختار مع شامى : 2/36)
