Abstract

Paper is a study of the ziarat, or non-hajj pilgrimages to Islamic holy places other than Mecca. The ziarat is part of the dynamic religious circulation in Islam in North Africa, Shia areas of Southwest Asia, Central Asia, and South Asia. Although non-obligatory, many more people participate in them every year than in the annual hajj to Mecca. Typical destinations are the shrines, mosques, tombs, and mausoleums of the Muslim saints, martyrs, Sufis, and other holy personages. - (SLD)
