Is the sa'ee area part of the Musjid?

Q: The preset safa marwa sai'e area is included in Masjid Al Harm boundaries. From this area can someone perform fard namaz niyah behind the harm Imaam.

A: Our kitaabs state that the sa`ee area is out of the musjid. Hence, if there is a continuity of sufoof right into the sa`ee area the namaaz will be valid.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
