Tawaf is a part of Hajj or Umrah. The people who are performing either the Hajj or an Umrah complete 7 round around Khana Kaaba and these 7 rounds around Khana Kaaba are referred to as Tawaf. These 7 rounds around Kaaba are done in an anti-clockwise direction. During Tawaf, both Muslim men and women move around Khana Kaaba together but they always remain extremely well disciplined during their whole journey. No vulgarity is observed at all despite the fact that men and women of all age groups and from various cultures are performing an Umrah together and there is no a separate line or queues for men and women. They are mingled and mixed up but in a highly pious and well-disciplined manner. No bad incident is generally observed and everyone focuses purely on worship and making the Almighty Allah happy instead of having dirty thoughts in mind. This can be considered as a sort of a miracle as there are people performing an Umrah who are not that much pious and well disciplined outside the boundaries of Haram or the moment they are not performing the Hajj or an Umrah. But once they start their Tawaf during Hajj or Umrah, they suddenly become extremely well mannered and they never misbehave with any lady performing Tawaf with them.
Details about Tawaf
While doing Tawaf, Muslims are moving in a circle around the Khana Kaaba. They start their Tawaf from the front of the black stone which is usually referred to as Hajar e Aswad. Muslims try to kiss or touch this holy stone at the time of performing Tawaf but most of them remain unable to do so because the crowd is mostly too big and it becomes almost impossible or too difficult to reach Hajar e Aswad and kiss or touch it. Therefore, they have to point towards the Hajar e Aswad and raise their hand towards it during each round around Khana Kaaba. Hajar e Aswad is said to be the stone from Paradise and it is considered to be the holiest stone in the world. This world is full of various precious stones including diamonds etc. but for each and every Muslim, Hajar e Aswad is more precious and valuable than any stone in the world. Even the diamonds and other precious stones of this world collectively can’t compete with the importance and value of this single stone, the Hajar e Aswad.
Present Situation of Muslims
Although the world is materialistic and people are constantly moving away from religion and they have started giving more importance to the precious things of this world rather than the holy things. Although the same is the case with the majority of the Muslims still, they give very high respect to Hajar e Aswad and they consider it more valuable and precious than any stone in this world. Thought of the life hereafter is not yet vanished from the minds and the hearts of the Muslims and they still fear Almighty Allah and they give value to all those things which are mentioned as valuable in their religion.
