As-Safa and al-Marwa

These are the two hillocks which the mother of Ishmael ran between and stood upon while searching for provisions and water; in Hajj people walk and run between these two hillocks in adherence to the Sunnah of the Prophet.

The distance between Safa and Marwah is approximately 450 meters, so that seven trips amount to roughly 3.15 kilometers.
