Abstract:   (92 Views)
During the historical period from 1860 to 1917, with the conquests, the Russian Tsarist government inevitably expanded and modernized its rail networks and shipping lines. The Caucasus was at the forefront of the development plans of the Russian Tsarist government. The result of modernization for Muslims was an increase in security and comfort with reduction in cost and length of the important religious and political journey of hajj that led to the emerging mass pilgrimage phenomenon of hajj. With the spread of epidemic diseases, including cholera, the complexities of the interaction between the tsarist government and the Muslim community in the Caucasus increased. The main aim of this research, which is done by analytical-descriptive method, and conducted via library resources, is to answer the important question of what was the role of epidemic diseases on hajj pilgrimage in the region.
