(p.1) Introduction
Muslim Pilgrimage in the Modern World

Babak Rahimi

Peyman Eshaghi

University of North Carolina Press

In the introduction, the authors try to provide a comprehensive report of the current situation of the non-hajj pilgrimage in Islam and explain the most important aspects of this widespread phenomenon among Muslims. Drawing on a large number of studies on the hajj and Ziyara, they explore different aspects and dimensions of these two essential notions in Islam. In the end, they focus on the modernity of Muslim pilgrimage and explain the structure of this book, which is divided into three parts of history, politics, and transnationalism; embodiment, memory, and materiality and communication, (new) media, and space.

Keywords:   Muslim pilgrimage, hajj, ziyara, modernity
