The Graves of Tarim

Engseng Ho

University of California Press

This chapter examines Ahmad al-Junayd's localist project of restoring the houses, mosques, and graves of the ancestors in Tarim. It discusses his other work of writing manuals that could guide pilgrims in and around Tarim graves. It suggests that this is an example genealogy acquiring a bending power, curving the journeys of persons back to the graves of Tarim and contends that that power builds on the genealogical canon that developed in the diaspora.

Keywords:   Ahmad al-Junayd, localist project, Tarim, graves, pilgrims, genealogy, diaspora
