Has about as much to do with Islam as my dads VW.

Those people are like the guy who is heading to London but takes the M1 North instead of M1 South when setting off from Leeds and then asks why are being people so freindly as oppose to unfreindly in London!

This is not the stuff people like Ghazali promoted. This is just a chance for some greasy haired lovers to have a grind.

Haha Sunny, listen I do not want to expose your secrets on here! Fantastic website by the way and I see playing the devils advocate has its advantages ;)

Your well on your way to the world domination you once told me about!

I doubt it is the largest. I reckong the Urs of Hazrat Khwaja Muinideen Chisthi(RA) in Rajastan is probably bigger. Their used to be huge gatherings in Baghdad at the grave of Shaykh Abd al Qadir Jilani (RA) but i suspect they are probably less well attended these days.

Might be an opportunity for some western bands to go over and sample some rhythms for up and coming albums.
