Abstract:

"This wonderful piece of social history delves into the rich world of the Cape hajj. It describes in great detail the particular traditions and ceremonies before and after hajj that are associated with the Cape Town Muslim community and recalls the particular status that was given to the hajj at the Cape - a status reflected in the hajj's dress and demeanour. The author sketches a vivid picture of the main players in the local hajj industry - the travel agents, the hajj operators and the regulatory bodies - and also dutifully tracks the many changes - cultural, economic and political - that have characterized the Cape hajj experience over the three centuries"--Jacket.
