I live in the Cape and have noticed that it has become practice for muslims before going for hajj to visit the mazaars. Some believe that the ground is holy and that the spring water that comes down the mountain is blessed etc. How do we as muslims know which are indeed saints and which are not? Apparently, Javanese religious leaders were exiled in South Africa and spread islam here but how is it that they were determined to be saints?

It is not necessary to do so. If, by continous narration people say 'here lies a saint', we would not deny or it would not be sinful to deny but out of respect we will not reject or nor will we do anything un-unislaamic there.
