'''తవాఫ్''' : ([[ఆంగ్లం]] : '''Tawaf''' (طواف)) అనునది [[హజ్]] మరియు [[ఉమ్రా]] సమయంలో ఆచరించు ఒక ఇస్లామీయ సాంప్రదాయం. [[muslims]] are to [[Circumambulation|circumambulate]] the [[Ka'bah]] (the holiest building in [[Mecca]]) seven times, in a counter-clockwise direction. This symbolises the seven times that [[Hagar]] Wife Of Hazrat [[Ibrahim]] ran Between the safa and marwah, looking for water for her son [[Ismael]] when he was only a little child hundreds of years ago. The circling is believed to demonstrate the unity of the believers in the worship of the One God, as they move in harmony together around their central shrine, while supplicating to God "''Labbaik Allahoma Labbaik''".
The Tawaf of the [[Ka'bah]] is a depiction of the Tawaf that runs above the Jannat al [[Firdaws]] in the seventh heaven where the Arsh (Allah's throne) is situated. Angels do Tawaf continuously around the Arsh. The Tawaf of the Kaabah should make it easy for humans to understand the reality of Tawaf around the Arsh.
