Performing Salaah and Tawaaf (circumambulation of the Ka`bah) without Wudoo’ (ablution)

Question 45: One year, I performed `Umrah during Ramadaan. I assumed Ihraam (ritual state for Hajj and `Umrah) from the Meeqaat (sites for entering the ritual state for Hajj and `Umrah ) and then performed all the rituals of `Umrah. However, when I reached Al-Tan`im in Makkah Al-Mukarramah I was in a state of minor impurity. Unfortunately, it was possible for me to perform Wudoo (ablution) then. When I entered the Sacred Mosque, I performed congregational Salaah. After Salaah, I performed Tawaaf (circumambulation of the Ka`bah) and Sa`ee (going between Saffaa and Marwah during Hajj) while in a state of minor impurity. After that I cut my hair and removed the state of Ihraam. The question now is, what should I do, given that I am now far from the Sacred Mosque? What is the expiation required? I appreciate your advice! May Allaah reward you best!
