Australian Muslim Experiences of the Meccan Pilgrimage or Hajj

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

This chapter explores the desire to stabilise identity through the experience of the Meccan pilgrimage. It argues that although efforts have been made to overcome internal differences such as ethnic, sectarian and cultural divisions, a cohesive identity which is both 'Australian' and "Muslim' has yet to be fully realised. It argues that the pilgrimage to Mecca serves as a potent metaphor for Australian Muslims, as an experience that is both structured around an 'ideal' memory and that communicates the socio-religious world through which Muslims filter what they see.
