In the Qur'an

Al-Safa and Al-Marwah are also mentioned in the Qur'an.

Behold! Safa and Marwa are among the Symbols of Allah. So if those who visit the House in the Season or at other times, should compass them round, it is no sin in them. And if any one obeyeth his own impulse to good,- be sure that Allah is He Who recogniseth and knoweth.

In Western culture

Mount Safa is allegedly the mountain referred to in the European proverb "If the mountain will not come to Mohammed, Mohammed must go to the mountain",[3] sometimes incorrectly quoted the opposite way around. English language sources trace the first written English use of the saying to Francis Bacon.[4]
