Focusing on the opening of Brazilian society to transnational and globalized cultural trends in the past decades, the author concentrates on the issue of the Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca and other Middle Eastern pilgrimage sites. He discusses the religious and cultural dynamics of the Muslim communities in Brazil and connects that with Brazilian Muslims subjects that experience a kind of globalizing in transnational arenas. The author argues that the transformation of the Muslim religious subjects often implies adherence to a specific codification of Islam or, at least, reconfiguration of previous understandings and forms of living one’s Muslim identity.
