(p.223) Chapter Ten On Mediation and Magnetism: Or, Why Destroy Saint Shrines?
Muslim Pilgrimage in the Modern World

Emilio Spadola

University of North Carolina Press

The author has analyzed reformist movements that have criticized non-Hajj pilgrimage sites and saint veneration. Discussing “spiritual magnetism” of the shrine, the author describes the shrine destructions in the current Middle East, North and West Africa, and Central Asia and tries to unfold the very social and cultural bases of anti-pilgrimage forces especially the Shabab movement and the Fatwa on Sufi shrines.

Keywords:   Shrine, anti-pilgrimage, grave, Salafism, Spiritual magnetism, Shrine destruction, Shabab movement, fatwa
