The mount of Marwah is regarded among the important Islamic landmarks. Each year, millions of Muslims visit the place during Hajj and Umrah. Just read out the article for further details.
Mount Marwah History and Facts
Mount Marwah is a point where Hajj and Umrah pilgrims end Sa’ee. However, it is an Islamic ritual in the remembrance of Bibi Hajra (Blessings of Allah be Upon Her). It is a small mountain that is located 980 feet (300 meters) to the northeast of the Kaabah.
Till the year 1955, Safa, Marwah, and the Masa'a were located outside Masjid Al Haram. Later both sites were annexed to Masjid Al Haram. The distance between Safa and Marwah is around 450 meters. Therefore, pilgrims have to cover a rough distance of 2.2 Miles (3.6 Km) while doing seven trips back and forth.
Mount Marwah Virtues
The importance of Mount Marwah is visible from this point that the names of both Safa and Marwa are present in the Quran Kareem. In Surah Baqarah, it is mentioned that “Surely, al-Safa and al-Marwah are the symbols of Allah. Hence, whoever performs Hajj (Full Pilgrimage) to the House (of Allah) or makes 'Umrah (Minor Pilgrimage), will find that it is no sin for him to ambulate between the two. And whoever does a good work voluntarily should know that Allah is Appreciative, All-Knowing.”
