Discussion of the Say

Topic/Issue:3561 - Hukum
Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
Imam Abu HanifaIt is obligatory by its kukm, and if the pilgrim does not perform it, hajj would (still) be obligatory upon him in the next season. They rely on the report "that the Messenger of Allh (God's peace and blessings be upon him) used to perform the sai and say, 'Perform the sa'y for Allah has prescribed the sa'y for you'". Further, the principle is that the acts of the Prophet (God's peace and blessings be upon him) in this worship are to be construed as conveying obligation, except those excluded by a transmitted evidence, consensus, or analogy
Aisha said that the verse 2:158 is to be understood in its obvious meaning, and it was revealed in the case of the Ansar who shunned running between al- Safa and al-Marwa in the way they used to during the period of the jahiliyya as it served as a place for the slaughtering of animals for the polytheists. It is also said that they used not to run between al-Safa and al-Marwa out of veneration for some of the idols (Mant). They inquired about this, and the verse was revealed validating their hesitation.
kufisIt is a sunna, and if he returns to his homeland without performing it he is liable to atonement by slaughtering an animal. They used 2:158 and said the meaning here is that he may "not go round them", which is the (variant) reading of Ibn Masud, They also considered the tradition of Ibn al-Mumil to be weak.
