Is wudu obligatory during sai

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 5.88b

Topic: Purification For Sa'i

The Prophet (saws) said to Aishah (.a.) when she was in the state of menstruation: "You may perform all rites (of pilgrimage ) as other pilgrims do, except performing the ‘tawaaf’ around the Kabah which you may do after you are clean and no longer menstruating." (Relaed by Muslim)

Hadrat Aishah (r.a.) and Hadrat Umm Salamah (r.a.) said, "(While performing the pilgrimage) A woman who performs the ‘tawaaf’, offers a two rakah prayer (by the Station of Ibrahim), and then finds that her menstruation has started, may perform ‘Sa'I’ between Safa and Marwah.'' (Reported by Sa'id bin Mansur)


In light of the above quoted guidance, the absolute majority of the scholars and jurists of ‘Fiqh’ or Islamic Jurisprudence are of the opinion that although being in the state of purity and ‘wudu’ is absolutely obligatory for performing the ‘tawaaf’ of the Kaaba; being in the state of ‘wudu’ is preferred but not an obligatory condition for doing the ‘sai’ or ‘walk between the Safa and Marwah hillocks’.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
