LM has regularly mentioned the importance of Muslims needing to adopt a Halal approach to holiday and travel plans highlighting the outstanding work of Brother Fazal Baharden and his crescentrating online service which rates hotels across the world according to their halal compliance.
My desire for Halal Tourism to be established and embedded as part of mainstream thinking for all Muslims worldwide appears to be gaining ground according to Malaysian Minister and General Jamil Khir Bin Baharom.
The General, speaking at the first Islamic Tourism Conference indicated that a trend had already started amongst Muslims in the Middle East and Far East who appear disgusted with the rampant Islamophobia in some western countries and are choosing to visit "Islam-or Halal friendly" destinations.
My strong advice to Muslims across the world who are increasingly reading this blog is not to waste your valuable money provided to you by Allah swt in countries who take a hostile approach to Muslims and Islam. We need to harness our economic power amongst the ummah to support and visit countries like Turkey or Malaysia rather than American Cultural backwaters like Disney who treat Muslims like this.
