Saee is to walk between the hills of Safa and Marwa seven times. Wudu is preferred but not required. Going from one hill to the other will count as one lap. A round trip will count as two laps.
Start from the hill of Safa. Upon reaching Safa, you may face the Kaaba and recite the prayers that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) used to recite, or you may pray as you like. Proceed towards Marwa.
There is an area between these two hills that is clearly marked by green lights. Men are to increase their pace and walk briskly between these two lights. If a man is accompanying women, children or the elderly who need their help, then he is not required to increase his pace.
Watch out for men who will shove past you especially in the area between the green lights.
Upon reaching each hill, pilgrims may face the Kaaba and supplicate, reciting duas according to sunnah, or as they wish.
You may stop and rest along the sides. Coolers containing Zamzam water are also placed at intervals. The floor will be slippery from spilled water in this area, so be careful.
Please do not walk in the designated area for wheelchairs, even if there is no one there.
Saee must be paused for congregational prayer. It is to be resumed from the point it was left off after prayer.
The distance between the two hills is exactly the same on all three levels. The upper levels are far less crowded.
Upon completing the seven laps, you are finished with umrah! Men may head towards any barber shop in the markets where they must trim or shave their hair. The shops are open at all hours of day and night.
Women may cut about an inch from a strand of their hair upon reaching a private area where they can remove their hijab.
All restrictions of the ihram are now lifted. You will resume ihram on the 8th of Dhul Hijjah when hajj starts.
