El-Mouled

Claiming myself a "Sufi" may sound pretentious in religion interpretations... Yet, I affirm that Sufi rituals are practiced weather consciously by everyone of us, each in his own distinctive manner..

Without any reluctance, I was drawn to the world of El-Mouled rituals, yet never looked back to wonder why ... perhaps it was the impact of the enormous crowded scene performing spiritual movements, attracted by humming sounds and lights glittering, the general mood disparity between solemnness and mischievous behavior, along with the regular popular amusements ...Always wondered, how can such an assembly of people constitute and vanish within hours, assimilating itself momentarity with a certain cult, its rise and downfall not withstanding time .... this dilemma haunted me for years ... participating with and witnessing El-Mouled rituals from its beginning to end finally settled down in my subconscious, the fundamentals of its philosophy and spirituality ...

For several years, I vouched to concise my El-Mouled experience in a definite description, many times I tried hard, yet surprisingly enough, each year I encountered new aspects ... The hierarchy of its participants is amazing ... some are believers, others are seekers and many are beneficiaries ...

El-Mouled is a Galaxy by its own right ... its planets are the followers ... and the "Elwali" is the star glorified by his holistic powers ...
