Al-Kāfi - Volume 4 > The Case of One Who Begins from al-Marwah or Makes Mistakes During Sa‘y Between the Two Places
Hadith #5

5ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ وَصَفْوَانَ بْنِ يَحْيَى عَنْ مُعَاوِيَةَ بْنِ عَمَّارٍ قَالَ مَنْ طَافَ بَيْنَ الصَّفَا وَالْمَرْوَةِ خَمْسَةَ عَشَرَ شَوْطاً طَرَحَ ثَمَانِيَةً وَاعْتَدَّ بِسَبْعَةٍ وَإِنْ بَدَأَ بِالْمَرْوَةِ فَلْيَطْرَحْ وَلْيَبْدَأْ بِالصَّفَا.

5. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Safwan ibn Yahya from Mu‘awiyah ibn ‘Ammar who has said the following: “He (the Imam), ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘If one performs fifteen times instead of seven times walking between al-Safa’ and al-Marwah he drops eight Shawt (walking once between al-Safa’ and al- Marwah) and counts the seven. If he begins from al-Marwah he must drop it and begin from al- Safa’.’”
