... We have already pointed out how intimately the subjects of the religious orders and of the shrines interpenetrate.  Both belong to the same world of miracle and magic, as real to the peasant as the veritable, material earth.  The Khudr to whom there are raised in Syria and Palestine more shrines than to any other wely, is said to impart the baraka, or miraculous power, to founders of the orders.  The folk-lore of the land abounds in tales of these, especially ‘Abd-el-Qâdir ej-Jilâni, Ahmed er-Refa‘i, Ahmed el-Bedawy, and Ibrahim ed-Dusuki, whose names are attached to the orders respectively founded by each, and who are linked together as the four poles, living on the four sides of the earth, which they uphold. (The Religions of Modern Syria and Palestine, Bliss, 1917)
