In the Masjidil Haram, makkah, you can find the place name Safa and Marwah. Ismaa’eel’s mother went on suckling Ismaa’eel and drinking from the water (she had). When the water in the water-skin had all been used up, she became thirsty and her child also became
thirsty. She started looking at him tossing in agony; she left him because she could not endure looking at him, and found that the mountain of al-Safaa’ was the nearest mountain to her on that
land. She stood on it and started looking at the valley keenly so that she might see somebody, but she could not see anybody. Then she descended from al-Safaa’ and when she reached the
valley, she tucked up her robe and ran in the valley like a person in distress and trouble, till she crossed the valley and reached the mountain of al-Marwa, where she stood and started looking,
expecting to see somebody, but she could not see anybody. She repeated that (running between Safa and Marwah) seven times.” Ibn ‘Abbaas said: “The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘This is the origin of the tradition of al-Sa’ee (the walking) of people between them (al-Safaa’ and al-Marwa).’

Hadits about Safa and Marwah

Telah menceritakan kepada kami [Muhammad bin Abu Bakar Al Muqaddamiy] telah menceritakan kepada kami [Fudhail bin Sulaiman] berkata, telah menceritakan kepada saya [Musa bin 'Uqbah] berkata, telah mengabarkan kepada saya [Kuraib] dari ['Abdullah bin 'Abbas RAa] berkata: “Nabi shallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam berangkat dari Madinah setelah Beliau menyisir rambutnya dan memolesnya dengan minyak zaitun. Dan Beliau mengenakan baju dan rida’nya, begitu juga para sahabat Beliau. Beliau tidak melarang apapun mengenai rida’ (selendang panjang) dan baju untuk dipakai kecuali minyak wangi (za’faran) yang masih tersisa pada kulit badan. Ketika paginya berada di Dzul Hulaifah, Beliau berangkat dengan mengendarai tunggangannya hingga sampai di padang sahara saat siang hari. Maka disitulah Beliau memulai ihram dengan bertalbiyyah begitu juga para sahabatnya. Lalu Beliau menandai hewan qurbannya. Ini terjadi pada lima hari terakhir dari bulan Dzul Qa’dah. Lalu Beliau sampai di Makkah pada malam keempat dari bulan Dzul Hijjah lalu Beliau melaksanakan thowaf di Baitulloh, lalu sa’i antara bukit Shafaa dan Marwah dan Beliau belum lagi bertahallul karena Beliau membawa hewan qurban yang telah ditandainya. Kemudian Beliau singgah di tempat yang tinggi di kota Makkah di Al Hajjun, yang dari tempat itu Beliau berniat memulai hajji. Beliau tidak mendekati Ka’bah setelah melaksanakan thowafnya disana hingga Beliau kembali dari ‘Arafah lalu Beliau memerintahkan para sahabatnya agar melaksanakan thowaf di Baitulloh dan sa’iy antara bukit Shafaa dan Marwah kemudian memerintahkan pula agar mereka memotong rambut mereka lalu bertahallul. Ketentuan ini berlaku bagi mereka yang tidak membawa hewan sembelihan (qurban). Maka barangsiapa yang ada isterinya bersamanya, isterinya itu halal baginya begitu juga memakai wewangian dan pakaian (baju).
[HR bukhari no.1444 - Mutawatir]
