In this Tuesday, June 4, 2013 photo, Egyptian Sufi Muslims perform Hadra as they celebrate Moulid inside the Sayyeda Zeinab shrine in Cairo, Egypt. The hadra is an Islamic act where attendees perform dhikr, a ritual of supplication that often includes recitation of God’s 99 names in Islam. Depending on the particular Sufi order, it can contain elements such as singing, dancing and music. Egypt’s roughly 15 million Sufi Muslims say their places of worship are under threat by rising radicalism. They say that since the country’s 2011 uprising that toppled longtime autocrat Hosni Mubarak, shrines held sacred to them have been attacked by hardliners who deem them heretical and idolatrous.
