Women not touching men during tawaaf

Q: I would like to know that when a female makes tawaaf and men bump into her or touch her, is it better for her not to make tawaaf and only make when the crowd is small so she can be sure no men touch her? Or is it ok to continue making tawaaf? If the woman is elderly is it ok?

A: Yes. In fact it will be important to make tawaaf in a way where she is not touched by a man.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
