Non-Muslims were pivotal in the rise and development of the medieval Islamic . Practice theory is employed to analyze the cult of Muslim saints.

Non-Muslims were pivotal in the rise and development of the medieval Islamic Empire. Coptic Christians made significant contributions in various arenas. According to the History of the Patriarchs of Alexandria, one of the most important spokesmen for Coptic Christianity in the late tenth century was Bluus ibn Raʇa'. Born as a Muslim, he studied the Qur'an, law, and hadit. After converting to Christianity, Ibn Raʇa' became a monk at Scetis.

This first in-depth scholarly study of the institution of ziyāra (visiting tombs), and its central role in the cult of Muslim saints in late medieval Egypt (1200-1500 A.D.), makes an original contribution to the social history of religion. It explores the range of meanings that saints held for the contemporary imagination through richly textured descriptions and analysis of the great cemetery of al-Qarāfa, the rituals of the ziyāra, and the entertaining stories told to pious visitors about the saints. It thus provides a vivid sense of this vital expression of Muslim spirituality. Through an examination of legal debates surrounding ziyāra, the dichotomous view of 'high' versus 'popular' religion is effectively challenged in favor of a more fluid model of cultural discourse.
