SHEIK HUSSEN

 

Lost in the desert planes of Ethiopia's Bale Zone lays the sacred shrine of Sheik Hussen, glistering white domes floating in a vast sea of emerald green scrub. This remote shrine and its sacred compound house the tomb of a saint renowned for his miraculous powers.

Although little is known of Sheik Hussen's history, his shrine has become the site of one of Ethiopia's most extraordinary pilgrimages. The faithful flock there twice a year from all over Ethiopia as well as from neighboring countries, to visit this complex of shrines and tombs.

The pilgrimage lasts several days. As the final prayers are offered and preparations are made for the long journey home, the pilgrims are spiritually enriched. Their journey has brought renewal and a welcome break from the harsh realities of their lives.
