Jabal al-Thawr (Arabic: جبل النور) is a mountain located four kilometres south of Makkah known for its cave that sheltered the Prophet ﷺ and his close companion Abu Bakr al-Siddiq رضي الله عنه from Meccan search parties.
Safa and Marwa (Arabic: الصفا والمروة) are two small, enclosed mountains adjacent to the Kaaba within the precinct of Masjid al-Haram, between which pilgrims travel back and forth seven times during the ritual of Sa’i. They are described in the Quran as being among the symbols or signs of Allah.
