Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 2791Narrated byJabir ibn Abdullah
We, in the state of Ihram, came with the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) for Hajj Mufrad (with the aim of Hajj only), and Aisha set out for Umrah, and when we reached Sarif, she (Aisha) entered in the state of monthly period; we proceeded on till we reached (Mecca) and circumambulated the Ka'bah and ran between (as-Safa) and al-Marwah; and the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) commanded that one who amongst us had not sacrificial animal with him should put off Ihram. We said: What does this "putting off" imply. He said: Getting out completely from the state of Ihram, (so we put off Ihram), and we turned to our wives and applied perfume and put on our clothes, and we were at a four night's distance from Arafat. And we again put on Ihram on the day of Tarwiyah (8th of Dhul-Hijjah). The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) came to Aisha and found her weeping, and said: What is the matter with you? She said: The matter is that I have entered in the monthly period, and the people had put off Ihram, but I did not and I did not circumambulate the House, and the people are going for Hajj now (but I can't go), whereupon he said: It is the matter which Allah has ordained for the daughters of Adam, so now take a bath and put on Ihram for Hajj. She (Aisha) did accordingly, and stayed at the places of staying till the monthly period was over. She then circumambulated the House, and (ran between) as-Safa' and al-Marwah. He (the Holy Prophet) then said: Now both your Hajj and Umrah are complete, whereupon she said: I feel in my mind that I did not circumambulated the House till I performed Hajj (I missed the circumambulation of Umrah). Thereupon he (Allah's Apostle) said: AbdurRahman, take her to Tan'im (so as to enable her) to perform Umrah (separately), and it was the night at Hasbah.

Running between al Safa and al Marwah
Muhammad, had no choice but to wrap all the above pagan traditions
- and more - with the mantle of 'Islam' so that his Quraysh tribe could finally believe in him as'the messenger of Allah',the supreme PAGAN rock god of the Ka'ba***
