Muhammad ibn Yahya and others has narrated from Muhammad ibn Ahmad from al-‘Abbas ibn Ma‘ruf from Musa ibn ‘Isa al- Ya’qubiy from Muhammad ibn Muyassir from abu al-Jahm who has said the following: “This is about a woman who had made a vow to perform Tawaf on all-fours; legs and arms. Abu ‘Abd Allah has narrated from his ancestors, ‘Alayhim al-Salam, who have said that Ali, ‘Alayhim al-Salam, has said, ‘She must perform Tawaf (walking around the House) seven times for her legs and seven times for her hands.’”
