Hajj
Question :

I performed Umra al-Tamattu and after the Tawaf I took the exit after the Black Stone thinking that I can turn left to go to the Maqam to offer the Prayer of Tawaf. Because of the crowd I was unable to do so and I performed the prayer at the place of Sa'ee and continued to undertake the Sa'ee and Taqseer. I returned the next day and repeated the Prayer of Tawaf behind the Maqam. Is my Umra in order and can I continue with Hajj?

Answer :

If the Sa'ee and Taqseer were done with the belief that they are correct according to him, then this is sufficient in their correctness.
It is sufficient in the prayer of Tawaf that it was made up as Qadha within the Mosque the next day.
