حَدَّثَنَا مُجَاهِدُ بْنُ مُوسَى، حَدَّثَنَا رَيْحَانُ، هُوَ ابْنُ سَعِيدٍ السَّامِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبَّادٌ، هُوَ ابْنُ مَنْصُورٍ عَنْ أَبِي رَجَاءٍ قَالَ كُنَّا فِي الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ إِذَا أَصَبْنَا حَجَرًا حَسَنًا عَبَدْنَاهُ وَإِنْ لَمْ نُصِبْ حَجَرًا جَمَعْنَا كُثْبَةً مِنْ رَمْلٍ ثُمَّ جِئْنَا بِالنَّاقَةِ الصَّفِيِّ فَتَفَاجُّ عَلَيْهَا فَنَحْلُبُهَا عَلَى الْكُثْبَةِ حَتَّى نَرْوِيَهَا ثُمَّ نَعْبُدُ تِلْكَ الْكُثْبَةَ مَا أَقَمْنَا بِذَلِكَ الْمَكَانِ. قَالَ أَبُو مُحَمَّد: الصَّفِيُّ الْكَثِيرَةُ الْأَلْبَانِ.

Abu Raja’ said: In the time of ignorance (Jahiliyyah) when we found a good beautiful looking stone, we would worship it and if did not get a good one , we would make a pile of sand and bring a Safi camel directly on top of it and then milk the camel so that the sand beneath would become wet and hardened. Then we worshiped the pile of sand until our stay in that place or area. Abu Muhammad said: Safi camels are camels with lots of milk.
