حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن أحمد بن محمد ابن خالد عن أبيه عن محمد بن سنان عن اسماعيل بن جابر وعبد الكريم بن عمرو عن عبد الحميد بن أبي الديلم عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: سمي الصفا صفا لان المصطفى آدم هبط عليه فقطع للجبل إسم من إسم آدم عليه السلام يقول الله تعالى: (ان الله اصطفى آدم ونوحا وآل ابراهيم وآل عمران على العالمين) وهبطت حواء على المروة وإنما سميت المروة لان المرأة هبطت عليها فقطع للجبل إسم من إسم المرأة


1. My father narrated to us, from Sa’ad Bin Abdullah, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Ibn Khalid, from his father, from Muhammad Bin Sinan, from Ismail Bin Jabir and Abdul Kareem Bin Amro, from Abdul Hameed Bin Abu Al Daylam, Abu Abdullah (asws) has said: ‘Al-Safa was named as ‘Safa’ because the Chosen one (المصطفى) descended upon it, the name of the mount was cut from the name of Adam (as). Allah (azwj) the High is Saying Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic is Saying [3:33] Surely Allah Chose Adam and Noah and the Progeny of Ibrahim and the Progeny of Imran above the nations. And Hawwa (as) descended upon the Marwa, and it has been named as Marwa because the woman (Al-Imra’) descended upon it, so the name of the mountain is from the name ‘Al-Imra’a’ (the woman)’.
