The word Halal ( حلال ) comes originally from Arabic language meaning: allowable, acceptable, permitted, and/or permissible.” Normally, the concept of Halal refers to anything allowable to Muslims in line with the rules and regulations of Islamic Shariah.

 

Islam encourages travel and inspires Muslims to travel to every part of the earth to be educated, to seek a better life, to perform Islamic religious rituals such as Hajj or Umrah, to seek a cure from illness, tourism, and enjoyment, as well as many other reasons. Moreover, Islam is constructed on five central pillars, and one of them is to perform Hajj by any Muslim who can afford this physically and financially.

 

However, Muslims not only travel to conduct Islamic rituals, but they can travel for many other reasons. As such, the concept of Halal travel is not only centered on travel activities undertaken by Muslims, as it has a much broader scope. Halal travel in its simplest form refers to travel (or tourism) activities that are conducted in complete compliance with the rules of Islamic Shariah.

Additionally, many verses in the Quran support and encourage Muslims to travel for the following reasons:

  • Trade and commerce (Al Israa: 66),
  • To immigrate (Al Nahl: 41),
  • To explore new prospects (Al Israa: 66),
  • To study ( Al Ankabut: 20)
  • To know about the history and previous generations (e.g., Al Anaam: 11)

Furthermore, Islamic Shariah supports Muslim travelers by offering them some privileges while traveling, such as (and based on the traveled distance):

  • Combining prayers (Jam)
  • Shortening prayers (Qasr)
  • Exemption from fasting during the Holy month of Ramadan (until they return to their home countries or home cities),
  • Exemption from Friday prayers (Jumaa)
  • Offering them the right of having part of Zakat money , and
  • Exemption from prayer timings.

Such privileges reflect the importance of traveling from an Islamic Shariah perspective.
