Sufi Karkariya order Kiss Leader’s Hand Mosa’ab Elshamy AP

Sufi Muslims emphasize mysticism in worship, and organize themselves into hundreds of “orders” whose members are devoted to a particular mentor, each one different and distinctive. Karkariya Sufis met in person last week for the first time since the pandemic in Aroui, Morocco, to kiss the hand of their leader in his unique robe made of patchwork. They gathered to celebrate Muhammad’s birthday. (Mosa’ab Elshamy/AP)
