Our Story

When Fazal founded Crescentrating in 2008, his vision was also to build a Trip Advisor-like travel platform for Muslim travelers. HalalTrip was founded by Kareem in 2010 as a Muslim hotel review site. In 2013, Crescentrating acquired HalalTrip.

Our mission for HalalTrip is to empower Muslims to explore the world with purpose and compassion while remaining true to their faith, and foster meaningful relationships with all communities.

Through HalalTrip, we strive to make place discovery and trip planning fun and intuitive with our growing library of travel content and discovery videos. We aim to bring together the global community by encouraging you to share and review mosques, Halal restaurants, Halal food, attractions and travel tips.

We will continue to embrace new technology and innovate, to enable Muslims to explore the city they live and travel to in a fun, intuitive and a worry free experience.
