History Of Sai
We must have a clear understanding of the history of Sai before going to perform the Umrah journey. We perform Sai in remembrance of the actions of Hazrat Hajra A S. She was the wife of one of our beloved Prophets Hazrat Ibrahim A.S. Moreover, she is the mother of Hazrat Ismail A.S. When the family of Hazrat Ibrahim A.S came to Mecca, Allah Almighty ordered him to leave his wife and his son in the desert of Mecca. Hazrat Hajra A.S. was worried but she came to know about the command of Allah Almighty then she became fearless. In the barren land, she was left alone with his son.
Hazrat Ismail A.S. was thirsty for water but there was no water at that time. She ran here and there between the hills of Safa and Marwa. But she couldn’t find water for her son. Looking at the thirst of Hazrat Ismail, Allah Almighty sent Gabriel and he put a stick on the rock. The water came out and a well was formed at that place which is the well of Zamzam now. This symbolizes the struggle and hardships of the actions of Hazrat Hajra R.A. You must have performed Sai when you go to perform Umrah with cheap Easter Umrah packages
