History of Safa and Marwa


Safa and Marwa are the two Holy Hills situated in Makkah.  The memories of sacred Safa and Marwa Hills belongs to Bibi Hajra and Prophet Ismail (A.S). Ibrahim (A.S) was commanded by Allah to leave His wife Bibi Hajra and son Hazrat Ismail (A.S) in the desert of Arab (presently Mecca) near Safa and Marwa. Ibrahim (A.s) is the Prophet of Allah and he must fulfil the orders of His Lord. So he left His wife and child in desert alone with a jug of water. When the jug of water ended infant Ismail (A.S) was crying for water than her mother complete seven rounds between the Safa and Marwa in seeking of water and at certain place from where She couldn’t able to see Her son, She ran fast. This act of Bibi Hajra is accepted by Allah and all he Pilgrims from that time and till the day of judgment are ordered to complete seven rounds between Safa and Marwa in the memory and sacrifice of Bibi Hajra. Even the portion where Bibi hajra ran between Safa and Marwa, Pilgrims are ordered to run. This act is called Sai. This was the reason which make two ordinary Hills the sacred and Holy places of Muslims.

Basically the order of Allah to Ibrahim (A.S) is the trier by Allah as Ibrahim was blessed with son at very old age and another reason behind this order that in future Ismail and Ibrahim (A.S) have to build the Holy Kaaba. This sacrifice is base foundation of Khana e Kaaba and ZamZam water
