1. Tawaf of al-Wida'e (the Farewell Circumambulation).
It is recommended for the pilgrim, when leaving Mecca, to bid farewell to the Sacred House by performing another seven circumambulations as farewell, and to touch the Black Stone, and praise and glorify Allah by saying peace and blessing be upon Muhammad and his progeny.
2. The visit to Madinah aI-Munawarah (the City of the Prophet): Among the most important recommendations for the pilgrim, before or after performing Hajj (pilgrimage), is to go to Madinah al-Munawarah to visit the holy shrine of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) and also the holy shrines of his household (Ahlul-Bait) i.e. his daughter, Fatimah with her three sons, Imam Hassan, Imam Muhammad al-Baqir, and Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq (upon them be peace) at the Baqi cemetery.
