Abstract
The Islamic archaeological sites of the Sudan vary in their function, purpose and architecture. These sites reflect the long periods in which Islam co-existed with Christianity among the members of the Christian state until the establishment of the Islamic state in the Sudan. With this latter state, Islamic religious schools were founded under the care of the kings after formerly being only related to individual efforts from individual Muslims under the Christian state. Studying these religious symbols, regarding their architectural shape and functional role and their establishment and spread, can be more profound when the elements of the society and the culture which helped the continuity and persistence of these symbols throughout these long periods and to the present day are considered. This study which examines the Islamic khalawi and their elements of endurance and continuity is founded on regional studies which are accredited for providing better and profound results. The study was conducted on the khalawis of Magsir Island in the region of Dongola. It represents the importance of the location of the island in the region whose historical and economical importance in the Medieval and Post Medieval periods is attested. The study presents detailed accounts of its elements of endurance, continuity, in addition to its architectural features. This study sheds light on the history of Magasir Island through its materialization in the form of the Khalawi for which the island is famous . It tries through the study of these religious symbols to illuminate the basic elements related to the religious organization and their continuity and persistence. The importance of this study is driven from the importance of the Islamic Khalawi and their effective role in the society throughout history and at the present day
