LEBANON Arabic Lubnan اجازء
Not mentioned in the Qur’an, but tradition has it that Ishmael collected the stones for the Ka’bah from five sacred mountains, one of which was Mount Libanus. The followers of Isma’ilu ‘d-Darazi, known as the Druses, a fanatical sect of Muslims, reside on the southern range of the Lebanon chain. [DRUSES.]
