I have not (done the Umra).'' He replied, ''Perform Umra from Tan'im.'' My brother went with me and we came across the Prophet in the last part of the night. He said, ''Wait at such and such a place.''

We set out with the Prophet with the intention of performing Hajj only. The Prophet reached Mecca and performed Tawaf of the Ka'ba and between Safa and Marwa and did not finish the Ihram, because he had the Hadi with him. His companions and his wives performed Tawaf (of the Ka'ba and between Safa and Marwa), and those who had no Hadi with them finished their Ihram. I got the menses and performed all the ceremonies of Hajj. So, when the Night of Hasba (night of departure) came, I said, ''O Allah's Apostle! All your companions are returning with Hajj and Umra except me.'' He asked me, ''Didn't you perform Tawaf of the Ka'ba (Umra) when you reached Mecca?'' I said, ''No.'' He said, ''Go to Tan'im with your brother Abdur-Rahman, and assume Ihram for Umra and I will wait for you at such and such a place.'' So I went with Abdur-Rahman to Tan'im and assumed Ihram for Umra. Then Safiya bint Huyay got menses. The Prophet said, '' Aqra Halqa! You will detain us! Didn't you perform Tawaf-al-Ifada on the Day of Nahr (slaughtering)?'' She said, ''Yes, I did.'' He said, ''Then there is no harm, depart.'' So I met the Prophet when he was ascending the heights towards Mecca and I was descending, or vice-versa.
