What is the ruling on donating the reward of tawaaf to another person, because some people, if they see someone who is going to go to Makkah, they say to him: Do seven for me, meaning seven circuits of tawaaf, and intend that the reward be for (the one who makes this request). Is that permissible or not?.
Tawaaf around the Ka’bah cannot be done by proxy, so no one can do tawaaf on behalf of someone else, unless he is doing Hajj or ‘Umrah on his behalf, in which case he may do it on his behalf along with the rest of Hajj or ‘Umrah.
And Allah is the source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.
