2 . By the order of Almighty Allah, when Syedna Ibrahim (Allaihi Salaam) came back leaving his wife and infant son Syedna Ismail (Allahi Salaam) all alone on the hot soil of Makkah which was unpopulated and unwatery. When infant Syedna Ismail(Allahi Salaam) felt thirst and started to cry, mother Syeda Hajira (Allahi Salaam) left him over rough and hot surface and started searching of water. She came over "Safa" hill and hen she started running towards "Marwa" mount. She struggled ( In Arabic Struggle Means Sa`ie ) and ran seven times between "Safa and Marwa " mounts, in search of water. Almighty Allah loved this devotion of a Mother and ordered rest of the human beings to come here and repeat this action of Syeda Hajira (Allahi Salaam). This action will have been repeated by the faithful till the "Day of Judgement".

Between these two parallel parts a two way passage is left for old and disabled persons, who can use wheel chairs in this space. These chairs are available near inside "safa gate" on payment.
Wheel-chairs out of safa gates are available for pilgrims. The wheel chairs
are kept in front of safa gate beside the wall of palace of saudi king.
