Abstract

This study analyses the motivations and experiences that drive the pilgrimage to the sacred tombs of the Lombok Sasak Tribe. This sacred graves pilgrimage is a tradition that has survived from the past and a heritage that passes from generation to generation. The study uses a constructivist paradigm with a phenomenological qualitative approach. The research locations are at the tomb of Almagfurlah TGKH Muhammad Zainuddin Abdul Madjid, in Pancor East Lombok; The Batu Layar Tomb in West Lombok; The Ketaq Tomb, Central Lombok; Bintaro Tomb in Mataram City and; the Tomb at the Bayan Beleq, Bayan in North Lombok. The analysis shows that the pilgrimage motivation to the sacred tombs is that of high religiosity. A high level of religiousness indicates gratitude for God’s tremendous and enormous blessings. It is such a great pleasure for pilgrims to have the opportunity to perform this Hajj safely. The pilgrimage experience to the sacred tombs means remembering death, remembering struggles, preserving purity or cleanliness, and strengthening brotherhood. The synergy between motivation and experience makes the pilgrimage to the sacred tombs sustainable and continues from generation to generation.
