Uzbekistan is in the Top-10 most attractive «ziyorat» (religious) destinations according to the Global Muslim Travel Index 2019 (GMTI) prepared by the Singapore-based company Crescent Rating and Mastercard. Indeed, Uzbekistan had been a homeland for many religious scholars and philosophers, who contributed to spreading Islam across the world and have stopped various misinterpretations from misleading Muslims around the globe. They were brilliant theologians, such as Imam Al-Bukhari, Imam Al-Motrudi and Imam At-Termizi, who spent their lives preserving the truth of Islam, and played a significant role in peoples’ lives around the world. The legend has it that visiting their tombs three times equals to pilgrimage to Mecca. For Imam Al-Bukhori’s “Jome As-Sahih” – a compilation of authentic hadiths (words and actions of Prophet Mohammed (S.A.V) is the second most important book in the Islamic world after Koran. Both him and Imam At-Termizi are among the three best muhaddiths (those who determine the authenticity of hadiths) of all times. The cities of modern Uzbekistan had been commercial, cultural, educational and religious hubs throughout centuries which attracted brilliant minds from distant places. Local scholars enriched their knowledge by traveling around the world. Most of them now rest in peace in Samarkand, Tashkent and Bukhara.
