Challenging the simplistic presentations of Islamic pilgrimage existent in much of the scholarship, Dr. Sophia Rose Arjana explores the diverse traditions practiced by the 1.7 billion Muslims across the world. Issues such as time, space, tourism, virtual pilgrimages, and the use of computers and smartphone apps all come under consideration in this wide-ranging study. Lucidly written, informative and accessible, Pilgrimage in Islam is perfectly suited to students, scholars and the general reader seeking a comprehensive survey of this critical element of Islam.
