  • Idtiba

    Idtiba (Arabic: الاضطباع) refers to the practice of uncovering the right shoulder during Tawaf al-Umrah and Tawaf al-Qudum. It is Sunnah to perform Idtiba for the entire duration of the Tawaf i.e. for seven circuits. Neglecting Idtiba will not invalidate the Tawaf.

    The practice of Idtiba is derived from the following Hadiths:

    حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ كَثِيرٍ، أَخْبَرَنَا سُفْيَانُ، عَنِ ابْنِ جُرَيْجٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ يَعْلَى، عَنْ يَعْلَى، قَالَ طَافَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم مُضْطَبِعًا بِبُرْدٍ أَخْضَرَ ‏.‏
    Ya’la رضي الله عنه narrated: “The Messenger of Allah ﷺ went round the House (the Kaaba) wearing a green Yamani mantle under his right armpit with the end over his left shoulder.”
    [Narrated in Sunan Abu Dawud]

    حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو سَلَمَةَ، مُوسَى حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادٌ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عُثْمَانَ بْنِ خُثَيْمٍ، عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ جُبَيْرٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَأَصْحَابَهُ اعْتَمَرُوا مِنَ الْجِعْرَانَةِ فَرَمَلُوا بِالْبَيْتِ وَجَعَلُوا أَرْدِيَتَهُمْ تَحْتَ آبَاطِهِمْ قَدْ قَذَفُوهَا عَلَى عَوَاتِقِهِمُ الْيُسْرَى ‏.‏
    Abdullah ibn Abbas narrated: “The Messenger of Allah ﷺ and his companions performed Umrah from al-Ji’ranah. They went quickly round the House (the Kaaba) moving their shoulders proudly. They put their upper garments under their armpits and threw the ends over their left shoulders.”
    [Narrated in Sunan Abu Dawud]
