Summary
"It is not only the holy cities of Mecca and Karbala to which Muslim pilgrims travel, but a wide variety of sacred sites around the world. Journeys are undertaken to visit graves of important historical and religious individuals, the tombs of saints, and natural sites such as mountaintops and springs. Exploring the rich diversity of traditions practiced by the 1.5 billion Muslims across the world, Arjana provides a rigorous theoretical discussion of pilgrimage, ritual practice and the nature of sacred space in Islam"--back cover
