Halal Abroad

Our Story

The story of how halalabroad.com was created is full of adventure, friendships & beards. Inspired by the escapades of Ibn Battuta, sanctioned by quotes of the Holy Quran and followed by a Jummah sermon on Travel, we are firm believers that travelling is all about euphoria- the countries you visit, the accommodation, the passage of travel and the people you meet during the journey.

“and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another” (Quran 49:13)

“Travel through the earth and see how Allah did originate creation; so will Allah produce a later creation: for Allah has power over all things” (Quran 29:20).

Travel is deeply concomitant in Islam and Muslims by & large consider closer to God and answer to ‘Duas’ are perceived more effective during travel. The ‘Holy Quran’ encourages Travel and is resonates across many citations. The ‘Ibadah’ and ‘Dawah’ while travelling is blessing and dissever indiscretions during their journey. This belief is a distinguished charisma amongst Muslim travelers, as it highlights the incentive for Muslim friendly experience for all forms of journeys. Hence, following on commands from the Holy Quran and the ‘Sunnah’ of ﷺ, Muslims are spirited when travelling for historical, social, and cultural motives, in improving knowledge, uniting with others, to fortify God's expectations and to benefit & appreciate God's creations.

We have been serving the world’s most discerning travelers for nearly a decade at OV Holidays.
