Whether traveling for business or vacation, here are some tips that can make your trip easier and more pleasant.
Du'a for Traveling
Remember Allah as you embark on your journey.
Air travel is still the fastest and safest method of travel, as long as you are aware of the stringent security regulations put in place after 9/11.
Enjoy the great outdoors, see the signs of Allah in nature, and take your time exploring off-the-track sites. Land travel (car, train, etc.) offers the greatest flexibility and opportunities to see more of the region.
Find a Mosque & Determine Prayer Times

Fiqh for Travelers
