Hadith #4

4ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ مَرَّارٍ عَنْ يُونُسَ عَنْ عَلِيٍّ الصَّائِغِ قَالَ سُئِلَ أَبُو عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) وَأَنَا حَاضِرٌ عَنْ رَجُلٍ بَدَأَ بِالْمَرْوَةِ قَبْلَ الصَّفَا قَالَ يُعِيدُ أَ لا تَرَى أَنَّهُ لَوْ بَدَأَ بِشِمَالِهِ قَبْلَ يَمِينِهِ كَانَ عَلَيْهِ أَنْ يَبْدَأَ بِيَمِينِهِ ثُمَّ يُعِيدَ عَلَى شِمَالِهِ.

4. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ‘Isma‘il ibn Marrar from Yunus from Ali al-Sa‘igh who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, was asked, when I was present, about a man who begins from al- Marwah instead of from al-Safa’. He (the Imam) said, ‘He must do it again. Consider if you begin with your left arms for wudu’ instead of with your right arm, you must begin with your right arm and then do your left arm again.’”
