This chapter discusses the key findings of the second section of this book about the genealogical travel writings of the Hadramis. The focus of this section is mainly on the Hadrami sayyids who combined their genealogies with other textual genres such as mysticism, history, and law. This chapter discusses how the Hadrami canon that evolved in the diaspora articulated a universalizing narrative of Prophetic mission in a language of names. It also considers the genealogies of the Hadrami diaspora as traveling texts that enable persons to travel transculturally.

Keywords:   travel writings, genealogy, Hadramis, sayyids, canon, Prophetic mission, transcultural travel
