Abstract FRE

L'Algérie est un pays riche en traditions, locales et nationales, islamiques et antéislamiques.

A travers les siècles, des pratiques diverses ont été développées.

Au-delà des préceptes universels de l'islam, elle a su protéger ses traditions locales, les adaptant parfois aux besoins de l'histoire.

Le pèlerinage de Rakb Sidi Chaykh est un festival annuel qui réunit, dans la ville sacrée d'al-Bayadh, à la zaouïa du maître soufi Sidi Chaykh, fondateur de la Chaykhiya, un ensemble de pratiques religieuses, sociales, économiques et festives.

Ce rendez-vous mystique qui se déroule chaque année, pendant trois jours, vers la dernière semaine de juin ou la première semaine de juillet, compte une série de pratiques qui transforment ce bout de désert en vraie foire commerciale.

Des communautés nomades et sédentaires de tous les coins du pays et des pays voisins notamment africains effectuent le voyage pour rendre hommage au fondateur de la tariqa et renouer les liens entre adeptes.
