Details

The hajj is the fifth and final pillar of Islam, which offers the chance to begin life anew, but even in its formative period the pilgrimage acquired political as well as spiritual significance. In a ‘foundational’ study, McMillan analyses how the early caliphs used their leadership of the hajj as an opportunity to reinforce their political legitimacy. Slightly off-mint.
