One who does saa‘i on the second or third floor does not have to go around the dome of as-Safa and the dome of al-Marwah

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
If a person does saa‘i on the second floor or on the roof (of the Mas‘aa), does he have to go around the dome of as-Safa and the dome of al-Marwah, or is that not essential, because we see overcrowding when going around them?.

Praise be to Allaah.

Going around the dome of as-Safa or al-Mawrah is not essential, because what is required is to go all the way to the end of the passageway for wheelchairs, and the passageway for wheelchairs ends a long way from the places where they go round. End quote. 

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