“Gifting” the reward of performing tawaaf to someone else

Reference: Fataawa al-Lajnah ad-Daa.imah lil-Buhooth al-‘Ilmiyyah wal-Iftaa. – Volume 11, Page 236, Fatwa No.8433

Question: What is the ruling regarding “gifting” the reward of performing tawaaf to someone else, whereby some people approach others and say to them: “Do seven for me!”, meaning: seven circuits, intending the reward for themselves. So is this permissible or not?

Response: It is not permissible to performing the tawaaf around the Ka’bah for someone else. So no-one should perform the tawaaf for other than themselves unless he is performing Hajj or ‘Umrah [on behalf of someone else]; So he does so in entirety [completing the] Hajj or ‘Umrah [and not just a part thereof].

And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet ﷺ and his family and his companions.
