Lahore Shrines Tour

Sufism is Islam's mystical tradition, the Sufis being Muslim holy men who develop their spirituality through prayer and meditation. Sufi comes from the Arabic 'safa' meaning purity, so Sufis are those whose hearts and souls are pure. The role of Sufis has been considered as intermediary who lead towards the path of Allah and success. Sufi saints portrayed life at its most perfect. The shrines of those great saints draw many who come to pray and make offerings. Each shrine has a festival (Urs) each year on the death anniversary of the saint's death. Findings of the study revealed that majority of the people have strong belief upon the blessings of Sufis and they visit shrine to fulfill their social, economic, physical, and spiritual needs. They believed that the late Sufis of shrine could listen, correspond and help them in multiple ways. The shrine then becomes a fairground, with musicians playing traditional instruments and singers performing mystical folk songs while dancers dance themselves in to a devotional frenzy. Trade fairs, sports competitions and traditional martial arts also take place such as fighting with daggers and riding.

Peoples perform different rituals as a part of their religious affiliation. These rituals are by and large associated with one or the other form of social, economic, physical and spiritual needs gratification. Peoples were found to be persuaded by different people including parents, relatives, religious leaders, and friends to visit Sufi Shrines. They performed different rituals and considered those acts as righteous and blissful. People from almost all walks of life visited shrines but among all visitors the vast majority of people belonged to middle or lower socioeconomic status.
