1. Publishing dua books for tawaf
and sa'ee has become a big business. There is constant
innovation in this line of publishing with the recent ones having
strings to hang the book around your neck and fully laminated pages
to protect them from the sweat of your palms. They have become
popular gift items to give to pilgrims.
Most of these dua have no basis in Sunnah.
There is no special dua except between the Yamani and the Black
Stone corners (Rabbana Athina ... ).
Learn the dua from The Holy Our'an
(for examples: 2:127, 2:128, 2:201, 3:8, 7:23, 71:28) and Sunnah
(for example: "Oh Allah, You are forgiving. You love
forgiveness, so forgive me."). These are easy to memorize.
Understand their meanings so that your mind, heart and lips are in
harmony when you recite these dua in Arabic or your mother
These will also make your tawaf and sa'ee easier
as you don't have to carry the book around. In reciting from the dua
book, some get so engrossed that they step on the heels of the
pilgrims in front of them.
2. During peak periods, there are 40,000 people per hour, at the
rate of six people per square meter, performing the tawaf.
3. The tawaf area has a diameter of 64.8 meters with the
center being the Holy
Ka’bah. The total area for the tawaf - the Mataaf - is
4,100 square meters.
