Residents of neighbouring cities are required to perform the farewell tawaaf

Reference: Duroos wa Fataawa al-Hajj – Volume 1, Pages 16-17, No.21

Question: Is the resident of Jeddah required to perform the farewell tawaaf or the ifaadhah [tawaaf]?

Response: Yes, whoever from [among] the hajj pilgrims wishes to depart from Makkah after [completing] the hajj, then it is imperative he perform the farewell tawaaf – whether or not he is departing for Jeddah or any other city – near of far. [This is what is required of] every departing hajj pilgrim from Makkah due to the command of the Prophet (sal Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) [to do so].
