Hajj journey to the heart of Islam 26/1 至 15/4 大英博物館

[size=4]大英博物館舉辦首屆題為“朝覲——走入伊斯蘭心臟之旅”大型展覽,旨在向非穆斯林介紹伊斯蘭的朝覲典禮。[/size]

[size=4]這次在倫敦大英博物館舉辦的展覽會從1月26日開始到4月15日結束。展覽會主辦人稱,此次展會將面向穆斯林和非穆斯林開放。[/size]

[size=4]參加此次展會主辦工作的蓋斯汗說:非穆斯林對伊斯蘭的朝覲瞭解甚少,同樣,穆斯林對朝覲歷史的一知半解也很令人吃驚。[/size]

[size=4]這位出生於巴基斯坦的主辦人認為:此次朝覲展所展示的伊斯蘭的和平資訊有其自身的重要性,因為近幾十年來,中東地區給非伊斯蘭世界的印象就是暴力與社會的動盪不安。[/size]

[size=4]他說:我認為舉辦這樣的朝覲展,可以向世人展示我們知之甚少的伊斯蘭的一個側面,而這個側面在很大程度上展示了伊斯蘭的和平精神。[/size]

[size=4]此次朝覲展還將向遊客提供如何準備朝覲的講解和演示,如在朝覲前償還債務,尋求他人對所犯過失的原諒等等。展覽會還將演示在過去數百年間,穆斯林為朝覲而行進的路線,其中包括從伊拉克庫法、埃及開羅、敘利亞大馬士革旅行到麥加的路線。展覽會還將向訪客演示和講解一些與朝覲有關宗教禮儀。[/size]

[size=4]大英博物館還展示了朝覲者穿著的戒衣和朝覲者返回故里後從麥加所攜帶的各種禮物。[/size]

Hajj: journey to the heart of Islam
26 January – 15 April 2012
Reading Room
Admission charge

Hajj: journey to the heart of Islam will be the first major exhibition dedicated to the Hajj; the pilgrimage to Mecca (Makkah) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia which is central to the Muslim faith.  The exhibition will examine the significance of the Hajj as one of the Five Pillars of Islam, exploring its importance for Muslims and looking at how this spiritual journey has evolved throughout history. It will bring together a wealth of objects from a number of different collections including important historic pieces as well as new contemporary art works which reveal the enduring impact of Hajj across the globe and across the centuries. The exhibition which has been organised in partnership with the King Abdulaziz Public Library Riyadh will examine three key strands: the pilgrim’s journey with an emphasis on the major routes used across time (from Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East); the Hajj today, its associated rituals and what the experience means to the pilgrim; and Mecca, the destination of Hajj, its origins and importance.

It is laid down in the Qur’an that it is a sacred duty for Muslims everywhere, if they are able, to make the journey to Mecca at least once in their lives. This pilgrimage takes place during the last month of the Islamic year, known as Dhu’l Hijja. At the heart of the sanctuary at Mecca lies the Ka’ba, the cube-shaped building that Muslims believe was built by Abraham and his son Ishmael. It was in Mecca that the Prophet Muhammad received the first revelations in the early 7th century. Therefore the city has long been viewed as a spiritual centre and the heart of Islam. The rituals involved with Hajj have remained unchanged since its beginning, and it continues to be a powerful religious undertaking which draws Muslims together from all over the world, irrespective of nationality or sect. .

A wide variety of objects will be lent to the exhibition. Loans include significant material from Saudi Arabia including a seetanah which covers the door of the Ka’ba as well as other historic and contemporary artefacts from key museums in the Kingdom. Other objects have come from major public and private collections in the UK and around the world, among them the British Library and the Khalili Family Trust. Together these objects will evoke and document the long and perilous journey associated with the pilgrimage, gifts offered to the sanctuary as acts of devotion and the souvenirs that are brought back from Hajj. They include archaeological material, manuscripts, textiles, historic photographs and contemporary art. The Hajj has a deep emotional and spiritual significance for Muslims, and continues to inspire a wide range of personal, literary and artistic responses, many of which will be explored throughout the exhibition.

This exhibition concludes the British Museum’s series of three exhibitions focused on spiritual journeys.

In partnership with King Abdulaziz Public Library, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

HSBC Amanah has supported the exhibition’s international reach outside the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
