0202 Editor's Notes:
Murabit (plural: Murabitoun) is a term for a Muslim warrior in a state of "rebat," meaning linkage, or bondage. It refers to a sort of mental preparation to protect Muslim sanctities. The mourabitat, or those who fulfill the commandment of being present in God's honor, serve as civilian guards in holy Muslim sites. Today in the Muslim world, due to religious and political threats, Jerusalem is a particularly important location for Mourabitat, specifically at the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
