On Ziyarat al-Nabi Shuayb, Druze sheiks visit the prophets tomb in the Galilee. The participants of the ritual kiss the grave and gather for prayers at the adjoining compound, where they lay covered with blankets. Due to the proximity of the traditional day of the pilgrimage to Nabi Shuaybs tomb with the Jewish Passover, Druze leaders argued about the date of the celebration. Finally, it was postponed and carried out with fewer participants.
