Being in the state of wudhu while making sa'ee

Q: Can you please tell me while doing sa'ee, why is wudhu not mandatory? Is it because safa and marwa are outside Masjid al Haram?

A: The fuqahaa have explained that being in the state of wudhu is not a condition for the validity of sa'ee, though it is mustahab to carry out the sa'ee in the state of wudhu. The fuqahaa have deduced the masaa'il of Deen from the Qur'aan and Hadith.

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