We're not going to get lengthy articles on each of Safa and Marwah; also, given the fact that they are almost exclusively referred to together, this should be sufficient justification for the name change. ---Mpatel (talk) 17:00, August 26, 2005 (UTC)
The distances shown appear to be incorrect. Safa is closer to the Kaaba than Marwah  . I don't want to do original research by measuring them out on a map — maybe someone can find better distance references. --Cam 12:57, 13 January 2006 (UTC)
Alternative view I deleted the details regarding the alternative view. A brief mention is sufficient, and moreover the exposition of the alternative view was less than clear. It conflated the Arabic roots s-f-w and s-f-f and misrepresented Qur'an 2:158, among other problems. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 05:54, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
As-Safa and Al-Marwah
Sa'i does not mean ritual walking.
Sa'i does not mean ritual walking. Sa'i means "seeking" or "search", one seeks the guidance of God. Hajar went back and forth seeking water, as well as seeking the aid of God. The modern statment "'Es'a ela rabik" loosely meaning, "turn to God and seek his help." 8227 16:04, 16 November 2015 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by A8227 (talk • contribs)
