The ruling on the two Rak'ahs of Tawaf and where they are to be prayed

Question :
Are the two Rak'ahs of Tawaf behind the standing place of Ibrahim obligatory for every Tawaf, and what is the ruling on whoever forgets them?

Answer :
It is not obligatory to offer them behind the standing place of Ibrahim. The two Rak'ahs may be prayed in any place in he Haram (i.e., the Sacred Mosque). Whoever forgets them, there is no sin on him because they are Sunnah and not obligatory. And Allah gives success.
