Fundraiser 2021

Hi there! Until February 2021 all the costs were being funded by the volunteers, but recently due to the rise in costs it is becoming difficult to cover the costs. If everyone reading this would donate just $5, our fundraiser would be over in less than an hour.

No donation is small, you can make your contributions here. :)

al-Safa

The Safa (الصفا) is one of the two small hills now located in the Masjid al-Haram Complex, in the Hejazi region of Saudi Arabia, between which Abraham's wife Hagar ran, looking for water for her infant son Ishmael, an event which is commemorated in the saʿy ritual of the pilgrimage.

circa 150 CE

The hill of Safa is located some 150 meters south-east of the Kaaba. The small peak is now enclosed with in the al-Masa'a and forms part of the Masjid al-Haram complex. Today not much remains of the original hill as it is now covered and part of the Masjid Haram, only a few rocks of the tip are visible. This is where the ritual of Sa'i starts.
