This blog is a modest celebration of some of the shrines of Sahaba, turbes of Saints, zawiyyas and mosques and other holy places that I have visited in recent years... PLEASE CLICK ON THE IMAGES BELOW to gain access to news, videos and photographs.
While it is not an endorsement of any particular religious practice, this blog is a recognition that not only are these places historical markers of faith in the world, and our history as an Ummah, but they may transmit an energy of silence and peace to pilgrims, enhance our prayers on the threshold of a Higher, Greater and Better World.
Recognition of this does not support attachment to Dunya/the World, and those Salafis & others who judge these practices too severely should take care not to make idols of their own minds. Let us not demonize each other but enter into dialogue in the spirit of Love. Dont destroy.
