Ziyarat. Sacred sites. Pilgrimage to sites. Uzbekistan Tours.

Ziyarah is an Arabic term which literally means "visit", and is used to refer to a form of pilgrimage to sites associated with Muhammad SAW, his family members and descendants, his companions and other venerated figures in Islam, such as the prophets, Sufi saints and Islamic scholars. Sites of pilgrimage include mosques, graves, battlefields, mountains, and caves. 
Sunni scholars declare that the purpose of visiting the graves and cemeteries is only to remind people of death and not for taking the graves of the Prophets as places of worship. 
“Visiting the grave is a duty which is performed for Allah's pleasure and visiting the grave of a father and mother on a Friday is appropriate.” Al Gazali, Ihya, IV, 711. 
Uzbek land is famous for Islamic scholars and Saints. Imam Al Bukhari, At Tirmidhi, Al Margilani this are the most well known names.
Abdul-Aziz Othman al-Twaijri, Director General of ISESCO: 
Uzbekistan occupies an important place in the development of Islamic civilization continues to combine the values of Islam and human civilization as a whole. Evidence of this is the revival of cultural and architectural monuments in such historic cities as Tashkent, Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva. In addition, the Uzbek land stands out for its great imams who left a rich heritage of Islamic knowledge. Author of the book "Jamie as sahih" - Imam Muhammad bin Ismail Bukhari. Author of the book on the interpretation of the Koran, "al-Kashshaf" works on linguistics "About perfection" - Omar al-Zamakhshari. 
Halit Eren, Director General of the Research Center for Islamic History, Art and Culture to the OIC: 
Among the many civilization processes that contributed to the establishment of Islamic culture on four continents, Uzbekistan is one of the key countries, made an invaluable contribution to the development of Islamic culture.
Since the early centuries of Islamic propagation, cities of  Mawara' un-nahr (territory of present Uzbekistan), especially Bukhara, were repositories of Islamic written works. Hence, these works on the trade routes penetrated into Europe. With the IX-X centuries of science and scientists begin to develop at an accelerated pace here. 
Imam al-Bukhari or Imam Bukhari was an Islamic scholar who authored the hadith collection known as Sahih al-Bukhari, regarded by Sunni Muslims as one of the most sahih (authentic) of all hadith compilations. He also wrote the books Al-Adab al-Mufrad. 
The historian al-Dhahabi described his early academic life:  “He began studying hadith in the year 205 (A.H.). He memorized the works of (‘Abdullah) bin al-Mubarak while still a child. 
He was raised by his mother because his father died when he was an infant. He traveled with his mother and brother in the year 210 after having heard the narrations of his region. He began authoring books and narrating hadith while still an adolescent. He said, “When I turned eighteen years old, I began writing about the Companions and the Followers and their statements. This was during the time of ‘Ubaid Allah bin Musa (one of his teachers). At that time I also authored a book of history at the grave of the Prophet at night during a full moon.”
Abu Isa Muhammad at-Tirmidhi (824 – 8 October 892), often referred to as Imam at-Tirmidhi, was an Islamic scholar and collector of hadith who wrote al-Jami` as-Sahih (known as Jami` at-Tirmidhi), one of the six canonical hadith compilations in Sunni Islam. He also wrote Shama'il Muhammadiyah (popularly known as Shama'il at-Tirmidhi), a compilation of hadiths concerning the person and character of the Islamic prophet, Muhammad. At-Tirmidhi was also well versed in Arabic grammar, favoring the school of Kufa over Basra due to the former's preservation of Arabic poetry as a primary source.
Sheikh al-Islam al-Marghinani (was an Islamic scholar, of the Hanafi School. He was born at Marghinan in the vicinity of Fergana in 530/1135 (in Present Day Uzbekistan) He died in 593/1197.  He is described as the Sheikh al-Islam, Imam, Hafidh, Muhaddith, and the leading jurist of his time, the master and possessor of different sciences.  Al-Dhahabi in Tadhkirat al Huffaz mentioned him as the one filled with knowledge. It is to be noted he belonged in an environment where one is taught by giants in the field and surrounded by great men, the standards are very high and one has to excel to be noticed, Al-Marghinani did much more than that. "There was no one like him in his times "Allamah Abd al-Hayy al-Lakhnaw.
