Question

What is the Fatwa on staying at Makkah after completing Hajj? How many days can we stay after Tawaful ifadah? Is it permissible to stay two days more after performing Hajj in order to do extra Tawaf?

Answer

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.
There is no harm in staying in Makkah after finishing Hajj. The Muslim can stay in Makkah after Tawaf Al Ifada as long as he wishes. He can during that period do any supererogatory acts like Tawaf or other forms of worship.
But the person performing Hajj should do Tawaf Al Wada (Farewell Tawaf) just before leaving Makkah. The Prophet said: "People are ordered to make the Tawaf around the Ka'bah their last rite; the menstruating women were, however, excused from it". [Reported by Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim].
Allah knows best.
