The Rifai Tariqa from Dishna performs a ritual known as “Dosa” at the Moulid Abou Al- Hassan Al-Shazly. Followers put a sword on their neck and the leader stands on top of the blade. If the man pure and fears god he will not be cut. Another similar ritual is putting a long skewer inside the mouth and piercing the cheek. When done by pure men who haven’t recently drank or smoked no blood is drawn.
