Imperial Mecca: Ottoman Arabia and the Indian Ocean Hajj. Columbia University Press. Paperback. ISBN: 9780231190770, Price: US$35.00, 392 pp. For the Muslims, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca—the Hajj—is a sacred ritual that cleanses them of sins and brings them closer to divinity. The pilgrimage is considered one of the pillars of Islam and has continued since the advent of Islam and the establishment of Islamic domination in Mecca during the final years of Prophet Mohammed in the seventh century. Muslims worldwide aspire to visit the Holy Kaaba at least once in their lifetime, and in modern times, the Hajj is considered one of the largest human gatherings with over two million people collecting every year in Mecca. Although there have been disruptions in the recorded past, the years 2020 and 2021 were the only occasions when the pilgrimage was reduced to a symbolic affair with 1,000 and 60,000 different nationalities present in Saudi Arabia being allowed to partake in the rituals. Notwithstanding the sacred, Hajj has mundane dissensions as well. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Contemporary Review of the Middle East SAGE
