Full Meaning of Tawaaph

Tawaaph is an indirect Quranic name for boys and girls that means “circumambulation”, the circular walking around the Kaaba during the Haj proceedings. It is derived from the T16-W-F root which is used in many places in the Quran.

…It is no sin for them or for you at other times, when some of you go round attendant upon others (if they come into your presence without leave). Thus Allah maketh clear the revelations for you. Allah is Knower, Wise. (Quran 24:58)
