Ritual 340

A pilgrim must, as a matter of precaution, observe the order of rounds in sa’y. However, in the course of performing sa’y, it is permissible to sit at Safa, Marwah, or between them for rest.

Yet one must, as a matter of precaution, avoid having a break in the process, except for those who are tired, or need to interrupt sa’y to catch up with prayer at the earliest time. In these cases, one may complete the sa’y from where it had been interrupted.

It is also permissible to interrupt sa’y to attend to a need, indeed at all times. Yet one should, as a matter of precaution, complete it and then repeat it.
