Ruling on one who feels exhausted before completing tawaaf

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

I am a woman who suffers from illness. I went for ‘umrah and when I had done three circuits of tawaaf, I began to feel dizzy. What should I do?

(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allah.

You should rest and then complete your tawaaf. If a long time elapses, then you must start tawaaf again from the beginning. But if your dizziness goes away quickly and easily, then complete your tawaaf and that will be sufficient, praise be to Allah. End quote.

Majmoo‘ Fataawa Ibn Baaz (17/435, 436)

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
