Reason to Travel

To worship

Perform Hajj during certain months, and umrah to the House of Allah. Narrated by Abu Umamah: A man said: Messenger of Allah, allow tourism for me. The Prophet (ﷺ) said: The tourism of my people is striving in the path of Allah, the Exalted. [Sunan Abi Dawud 2486]

To seek and spread knowledge​

[Such believers are] the repentant, the worshippers, the praises [of Allah], the travelers [for His cause], those who bow and prostrate [in prayer], those who enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong, and those who observe the limits [set by] Allah. And give good tidings to the believers. [al-Tawbah 9:112]​

To learn lessons and receive reminders​

“Say (O Muhammad SAW): Travel in the land and see what was the end of those who rejected truth” [al-An’aam 6:11] “Say to them (O Muhammad SAW): “Travel in the land and see how has been the end of the Mujrimoon (criminals, those who denied Allaah’s Messengers and disobeyed Allaah)” [al-Naml 27:69]

To call people to Allah and to convey the teachings of Prophet Muhammad SAW​

To ponder the wonders of Allah’s creation and enjoy its beauty​

“Say: Travel in the land and see how (Allaah) originated the creation, and then Allaah will bring forth the creation of the Hereafter (i.e. resurrection after death). Verily, Allaah is Able to do all things” [al-‘Ankaboot 29:20]
