Omar Kasmani

University of North Carolina Press

In this article, the author explains the experiences and sensations of Pakistani pilgrims toward a local pilgrimage saint and tries to locate it within the broader context of the visionary aspects of Muslim religious experience. Focusing on the intersections of dreams and shrines, he expands the discussion of the social sphere to include the broader scope of pilgrimage. To understand the local pilgrimage tradition in Pakistan, the author incorporates scholarship on songs, dreams, and architecture and provides an in-depth analysis of the pilgrimage in this country.

Keywords:   pilgrimage, Cult of Saints, Pakistani Muslims, dreams, shrines, architecture, songs
