  • Travel In The Future: Travel Trends You Should Look Out For In 2020

    Halal tourism is a booming market, expanding rapidly in the global trend. The demand is speculated to increase in years to come as the Muslim population around the world is growing. We have seen how some destinations have embraced the Halal tourism trend by ensuring they are Muslim friendly, providing Halal cuisine and the information needed for one to consider when traveling. Let's have a look at some of the travel trends that you should look out for in 2020! via GIPHY 1. The "Muslim Social Impact Travel" Spirit Credit Image: Annie Spratt on Unsplash  Islam has taught us to foster good relations with our society. We are taught to care for the less fortunate, extending help and charity as much as possible. Leading a balanced life and being eco-friendly without causing harm to nature is also in tune with Islamic beliefs. The younger generation seeks to make more cultural and social impact when travelling instead of just travelling for leisure. Apart from having a fun trip, they want a trip that adds values and make meaningful experiences. These trips enable them to give back to society, making a positive impact and minimize harm to the environment.Opting to buy from local businesses over large corporations is an example of keeping this spirit alive. In this manner, the skills and livelihood of locals are recognized and valued. Combining travel with volunteering has been made possible too. An organization like WWOOF (Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms) links volunteers to farmers in building a sustainable community. How else can you attain an enjoyable yet fulfilling trip with incredible learning experiences?  With the rise of this travel spirit, service providers that implement travel packages that align with social values are more likely to attract a greater pool of audiences.  2. Catering Off-track Destinations to Muslim Travelers Credit Image: Andreas Wagner on Unsplash Over-tourism can be a factor for popular destinations to lose its hype. More and more travelers are searching for the less-traveled destinations, away from tourist hotspots. These destinations are less crowded and often provides a more authentic experience. The fact that it is untainted by tourists may be attractive to Muslim travelers as they are more attracted to a unique and exotic experience before they become mainstream. However, the setback of travelling to these destinations lies in certain travel considerations of a Muslim traveler, like the ability to find Halal food.  An example of an off-track destination is Brunei. Brunei receives approximately 259,000 visitors annually, which makes it a less-traveled destination. Brunei will be a perfect destination for a Muslim traveler as they cater to the Muslim travel needs. With these consumer preferences in mind, destinations may have to embrace the diverse needs of travellers in order to continue attracting them, which includes catering to the faith-based needs of Muslim travellers. 3. Overcoming Islamophobia  Credit Image: T. Chick McClure on Unsplash The issue of Islamophobia is no longer foreign to most of us. We have seen how it has elevated to hate crime in certain parts of the world. It might be a concern for a Muslim traveler to consider going on a trip to destinations where Islamophobia is widespread. Like any other travelers, safety and security are a priority for Muslim travelers.  As we enter Halal Travel 2.0 with technology as an important driver, we find that more Muslim travelers are able to make meticulous decisions with regards to their next destination. This is attributed to the increase in digital tools as well as the effect of technology in making the world more interconnected. We can get information within seconds with official news channels and social media. The unlimited information obtained through social media and official news sites thus assures both current and future travelers when making informed decisions for their next destination. This becomes important as destinations continue to provide more Muslim-friendly services and are dedicated to improving the local climate for travelers.  4. The Global Travel Wallet Credit Image: Jonas Leupe on Unsplash As mentioned earlier, technology continues to influence our daily life. Advanced security in face recognition and thumbprint technology makes e-wallet and mobile payment possible. It has gained popularity amongst travelers, providing ease while guaranteeing safety. More merchants are making digital payment methods available, promising efficiency, security, and convenience for travelers.Muslim travelers can thus enjoy digital transactions without worries as FinTech companies offer value-added service. Traditional banks understand the need for e-commerce payment transactions for their Muslim clients, thus motivating them to introduce financial services to facilitate travel needs.  5. Drivers of Muslim Female Travelers Growth Credit Image: Noorulabdeen Ahmad on Unsplash With almost 45% of the Muslim travel market comprising of Muslim women, we can expect to see more activities caterred to this group of travelers. According to another report by Crescentrating published last year, two-thirds of the women travelers are below the age of 40. And half of them use social media to arrange for accommodation and dining. The influence of social media also shapes the activities engaged by these group of travelers.A small travel company, Intrepid Travel offers tours that cater to women only. Although the choices are currently limited, female travelers can experience the culture and traditions that another country has to offer.We hope that with more initiatives driven by a company, it will inspire more companies to run similar or better initiatives to provide such inclusive services that cater to the female Muslim travelers. This will capture the market of female Muslim travelers with more services like these in place.  6. The Rise Of Halal Gastronomy   Credit Image: Fabrizio Magoni on Unsplash With the growth of Muslim travelers around the world, destinations have seen the need to expand the Halal food industry. More services and operators are redesigning their culinary activities to include Muslim-friendly gastronomy tours and activities. Muslim travelers are also keen in participating in food tours and festivals as an experience to immerse in different cultural experiences. This would impact the food industry and lead to new developments to diversify and include the Halal culinary.  Taking Japan as an example, it has embraced the Halal gastronomy and has been organizing Halal Expo every year since 2014. As of last year, there has been a growth in vendors that offers culinary ranging from Halal to Muslim-friendly food and beverages. 7. The Daud Kim Effect Credit Image: Kushagra Kevat on Unsplash Daud Kim is a former Korean singer turn popular vlogger, who now brings his viewers with him through his journey into Islam. With massive subscribers in his Youtube channel, it is no doubt that young Muslims find him relatable and enjoy his content.His videos have been inspirational as he shares with the viewers the faith-based needs of a Muslim. His simple yet unique style videos doesn't only cater to Muslims, but also non-Muslims. Apart from promoting a Muslim-friendly environment and sharing travel needs to the world, the Daud Kim Effect also continue to play a significant role in reducing stereotypes and changing preconceived perceptions of Muslim travelers. Through creating a positive impact, this trend will help in shaping a better travel market for Muslim travelers. 8. The Ertugrul Phenomenon Credit Image: Krists Luhaers on Unsplash It is no surprise that dramas and movies can influence one's decision to travel. Movies like Lord of The Rings had travelers flock to New Zealand. Meanwhile, the Korean Wave, which saw the spread of K-dramas and K-pop all over the world, has made South Korea a popular tourist destination. Resurrection Ertugrul, a Turkish television drama series inspired by Islamic history and heritage, is one of those well-produced shows that has made Sorgut, the town where this series was shot at, a popular tourist destination.Apart from its entertainment value, these shows have effectively revived the interest of Muslims to learn more about these past figures and history. The increasing popularity of these shows will continue to impact the travel market as it piques the travelers' curiousity. via GIPHY There you have it, the travel trends that you should look out for in 2020. We've seen how there's a rise in the Halal tourism trend as many countries are adopting more Muslim-friendly services. With these travel trends increasingly catered to the Muslim community, Muslim travellers can be rest assured and plan their next destination with ease. ...

  • Manners & Dua Series | Prophetic (SAW) Practices, Azkar and Dua For When You Wake Up In The Morning

    بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ As we continue to face challenging times, we need to strengthen our relationship and remembrance of Allah (SWT) in everything we do.  Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) has taught us not just Azkar and Dua(s) but also the practices for almost every occasion of our daily life. Being consistent in reciting these Azkar and following his (SAW) sunnah will greatly benefit us in this world and the hereafter.   At HalalTrip, we are starting this new series of posts on the essential Azkar/Dua and manners that all of us should strive to practise, memorize, understand it’s meaning, internalize and be consistent in implementing them in our daily lives. The first post will be on the very first thing we do to start our day, i.e. wake up in the morning. We wake up because Allah (SWT) through his mercy has returned the soul to our body. Should we not be grateful for that? So here are some of the practices of the Prophet (SAW) and the Azkar he recited as he woke up.  The Three Knots Image credit: Manuel Sardo on Unsplash Narrated Abu Huraira (RA): Allah's Messenger (SAW) said, "Satan puts three knots at the back of the head of any of you if he is asleep. On every knot he reads and exhales the following words, 'The night is long, so stay asleep.' When one wakes up and remembers Allah, one knot is undone; and when one performs ablution, the second knot is undone, and when one prays the third knot is undone and one gets up energetic with a good heart in the morning; otherwise one gets up lazy and with a mischievous heart." (Sahih al-Bukhari) "If You Are Straight, We Are Straight" Image credit: Masjid Pogung Dalangan on Unsplash Narrated Abu Sa'eed Al-Khudri (RA): That the Prophet (SAW) said, "When the son of Adam wakes up in the morning, all of his body parts bow to the tongue and say: 'Fear Allah regarding us, we are only part of you. If you are straight we are straight and if you are crooked we are crooked." (Jami`at-Tirmidhi) Wash Your Hands Image Credit: Geetanjal Khanna on Unsplash Narrated from Salim from his father (RA): The Messenger of Allah said: "When anyone of you wakes up from sleep, he should not put his hand into the vessel until he has washed it." (Sunan Ibn Majah) Narrated Abu Huraira (RA): When anyone amongst you wakes up from sleep, he must not put his hand in the utensil till he has washed it three times, for he does not know where his hand was during the night.   (Sahih Muslim) The Morning Routine of the Prophet (SAW) Image credit: Ali Hegazy on Unsplash Narrated Ibn Abbas (RA): I stayed overnight in the house of my aunt Maimuna (RA). Allah's Messenger (SAW) talked with his wife for a while and then went to bed. When it was the last third of the night, he got up and looked towards the sky and said: ‏إِنَّ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلاَفِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ لآيَاتٍ لأُولِي الأَلْبَابِ‏  "Verily! In the creation of the Heavens and the Earth and in the alteration of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding." (Qur’an 3.190). Then he stood up, performed ablution, brushed his teeth with a Siwak, and then prayed eleven rak'at. Then Bilal pronounced the Adhan. The Prophet (SAW) then offered two rak'at (Sunna) prayer and went out (to the Mosque) and offered the Fajr prayer. (Sahih al-Bukhari) Narrated Ibn Abbas (RA): Once I passed the night in the house of Maimuna (RA). I slept across the bed while Allah's Apostle and his wife slept length-wise. The Prophet (SAW) slept till midnight or nearly so and woke up rubbing his face and recited ten verses from Surat "Al-`Imran." Allah's Messenger (SAW) went towards a leather skin and performed ablution in the most perfect way and then stood for the prayer. I did the same and stood beside him. The Prophet (SAW) put his right hand on my head, twisted my ear and then prayed two rak'at five times and then ended his prayer with witr. He laid down till the Mu'zzin came, then he stood up and offered two rak'at (Sunnah of Fajr prayer) and then went out and offered the Fajr prayer.  (Sahih al-Bukhari) Narrated Hudhaifa (RA): When the Prophet (SAW) went to bed, he would say:  ‏ بِاسْمِكَ أَمُوتُ وَأَحْيَا (Bismika amutu wa ahya) “In Your name, O Allah I live and I die”  and when he got up he would say: الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي أَحْيَانَا بَعْدَ مَا أَمَاتَنَا وَإِلَيْهِ النُّشُورُ (Al-hamdu li l-lahil-ladhi ahyana ba'da ma amatana wa ilaihin-nushur) “Praise be to Allah, Who has given us life-after causing us to die, and to him is the Resurrection” (Sahih al-Bukhari) "If You Take My Soul" Image credit: Becca Schultz on Unsplash Narrated Abu Hurairah (RA): The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “When one of you leaves his bed then returns to it, then let him brush it off with the edge of his ¹Izar three times, for indeed, he does not know what succeeded him upon it after him. When he lies down, let him say: بِاسْمِكَ رَبِّي وَضَعْتُ جَنْبِي وَبِكَ أَرْفَعُهُ فَإِنْ أَمْسَكْتَ نَفْسِي فَارْحَمْهَا وَإِنْ أَرْسَلْتَهَا فَاحْفَظْهَا بِمَا تَحْفَظُ بِهِ عِبَادَكَ الصَّالِحِينَ (Bismika rabbī waḍa`tu janbī wa bika arfa`uhu, fa’in amsakta nafsī farḥamhā wa in arsaltahā faḥfaẓhā bimā taḥfaẓu bihī `ibādakaṣ-ṣāliḥīn) “In Your Name, my Lord, I lay my side down, and in Your Name I raise it. And if You take my soul, then have mercy upon it, and if You release it, then protect it with that which You protect Your righteous worshipers” And when he awakens, let him say:  الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي عَافَانِي فِي جَسَدِي وَرَدَّ عَلَىَّ رُوحِي وَأَذِنَ لِي بِذِكْرِهِ (Al-ḥamdulillāh alladhī `āfānī fī jasadī wa radda `alayya rūḥī wa adhina lī bidhikrih). “All praise is due to Allah, Who healed me in my body, and returned to me my soul, and permitted me to remember Him” (Jami'at-Tirmidhi)  1. Izar: a voluminous outer garment that covers the whole body. The Prayers of the Prophet (SAW) Upon Waking Up Image credit: Falaq Lazuardi on Unsplash Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin (RA): Shariq al-Hawzani and I came to Aisha (RA) and asked her: By which (prayer) the Messenger of Allah (SAW) began when he woke up at night? She replied: You asked me about a thing which no one asked me before. When he woke up at night, he uttered: الله أكبر "Allah is Most Great" 10 times,  ٱلْحَمْدُ لِلَّٰهِ‎  and uttered "Praise be to Allah" 10 times, سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ and said "Glory be to Allah and all praise is due to him" 10 times سُبْحَانَ الْمَلِكِ الْقُدُّوسِ and said: "Glory be to the King, the Most Holy" 10 times,  أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللّٰهَ‎ and asked Allah's pardon 10 times, لآ اِلَهَ اِلّا اللّهُ and said: "There is no god but Allah" 10 times, اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ ضِيقِ الدُّنْيَا وَضِيقِ يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ and then said: "O Allah! I seek refuge in Thee from the distress of this world and the distress of the Day of Resurrection" 10 times. He then began the prayer. ‏(Sunan Abi Dawud)   “None Has the Right to be Worshiped but Allah Alone" Image Credit: Rumman Amin on Unsplash Ubadah bin As-Samit (RA) said: “The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: ‘Whomever wakes up in the morning and says upon waking:   لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيرٌ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ وَلاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ وَلاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللَّهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْعَظِيمِ  (La ilaha illallah wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu, wa Huwa ‘ala kulli shay’in Qadir; Subhan-Allah walhamdu lillahi, wa la ilaha illallahu, wa Allahu Akbar, wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahil-‘Aliyil-‘Azim)  “None has the right to be worshiped but Allah alone, with no partner or associate. His is the dominion and all praise is to Him, and He is Able to do all things. Glory is to Allah, praise is to Allah, none has the right to be worshiped but Allah, Allah is the Most Great, and there is no power and no strength except with Allah, then he supplicates Rabbighfirli رَبِّ اغْفِرْ ل (O Lord, forgive me), he will be forgiven.’    Walid said: “Or he said: then if he supplicated, it will be answered for him then if he stood up and performed ablution and then performed prayer, his prayer would be accepted.” (Sunan Ibn Majah) Let’s memorize these Azkar and bring these practices to our daily lives....

  • Goshin Ramen - New Halal Japanese Restaurant In Changi Airport Singapore!

    Don’t know about you but Japanese cuisine is just something we can’t get enough of! It could be because each dish is meant to remain true to its roots and so most Japanese restaurants maintain a high quality in their cooking. We‘re so excited to share with you about the new Halal Restaurant in town – Goshin Ramen. We were so thankful to have been able to get our hands on some of their popular dishes. via GIPHY Note! Goshin Ramen is known to serve big bowls of servings so bring your friends along when you’re here! Located in Changi Airport’s Terminal 4, Goshin Ramen is Halal-Certified and serves authentic Japanese cuisine. On top of that, Goshin Ramen also experiments with fusion dishes like their Nasi Lemak Donburi with an aim to create a dish familiar to the older generation of the Malay community in Singapore. The Nasi Lemak Donburi came as a surprise to us since the Nasi Lemak (rice that is cooked with coconut milk) was not as fragrant as the traditional Nasi Lemak. It turns out that they wanted to replace the heavy taste of coconut milk with something lighter so that it does not overpower the entire dish. After rounds of research and development, they found that Virgin Coconut Oil was the best alternative to replace the coconut milk.  To be completely honest, we were not expecting the Nasi Lemak to be very different from the traditional Nasi Lemak. However, after tasting the dish, we then understood how the absence of that strong coconut flavor gave the rest of the ingredients a chance to stand out. The dish is topped off with their very own egg tamago (Japanese omelet) in replacement of sunny side up eggs in the traditional Nasi Lemak, turmeric flavored fried chicken, tempura bits, shredded seaweed and lastly the classic sambal (chili), an essential in any Nasi Lemak dish.  Their Wagyu Karubi Ramen (SGD$18.80) is a must-try when you’re here. The broth in this dish is extremely light but still flavorful. Different from different Japanese restaurants, you might find that their broth could be on the salty side since the flavor of the broth tends to overpower the dish. However, something about this broth makes it really light but still complements the main ingredient of the dish which is their wagyu. The Wagyu Karubi Ramen uses parts of the Wagyu beef ribs air-flown from Japan.  If you’re a fan of huge prawns, the Daikairo Ramen (SGD$16.80) is something you want to get your hands on. Just like their Wagyu Karubi Ramen, the Daikairo Ramen is cooked with a broth that is extremely light and easy to savor. Personally, we’re not fans of thick and salty broths so this one is right up our alley. The Daikairo Ramen uses a seafood broth that has a little spice in it to overcome the jelak-ness (when one gets sick of a certain taste) but is completely safe for kids. In this dish, you’ll be served with Big Tiger Prawns right at the top of this dish.  Goshin Ramen also serves an array of dry ramen such as their Ramen Rebus (SGD$14.80, another twist to the traditional Mee Rebus), Mala Ramen (SGD$16.80), Tori Katsu Kare Ramen (SGD$14.80) and their very own Toryufu Ramen (SGD16.80). The Toryufu Ramen is a truffle flavored ramen topped off with sauteed mixed mushroom. Some of the mushrooms include oyster and enoki mushroom. Then, break into their Ajitsuke Tamago and watch the golden egg yolk ooze out of it! The egg is then topped off with some fish roe to complete the dish.  If the sashimi is something you’d look for in a Japanese restaurant, you bet there is. Goshi Ramen serves an extensive menu of sashimi and sushi. Some of their signatures include their Sashimi Platter (SGD$18), Kani Tempura (SGD$2.60) and their Tamago Zensai (SGD$3.20). On our next visit to Goshin Ramen, we’ll definitely try some of their Nadare Moriawase (Avalanche Sushi Roll) and their Aburi Sushi. We’re really eyeing their Spicy Shake Nadare (SGD$12.80, fresh salmon trout avalanche with special homemade spicy mayonnaise), their Aburi Shake Chizu (SGD$ 3.40, seared salmon sushi with cheese) and their Aburi Wagyu (SGD$12, seared Wagyu sushi). Lastly, presenting our favorite dish, one that we’ll definitely come back for more. Drum roll please! The Saba-Shioooo~~~~ Something about this dish tastes just so good. The Saba-shio (SGD$12) is a grilled mackerel served on a grill with heated charcoal to maintain the heat and the freshness of the grilled mackerel. Goshin Ramen had originally served the grilled mackerel on an ordinary plate when they first opened. However, they soon realized that customers value an extravagant presentation. Thankfully they decided to keep the grill because it definitely elevated the dish and keeps it fresh thanks for the charcoal. The Saba-shio is definitely something we’d recommend to anyone who’s going to Goshin Ramen. Love! Drinks! We tried their Goshin Sunburst and their Summer Peach Soda. While the Summer Peach Soda gives a great presentation with an orange purple ombre when you stir the drink (an illustration of the sunset), we love the Goshin Sunburst. The Goshin Sunburst, in a nutshell, is a peach syrup that is being mixed with soda. However, what we love most about the drink are the bobas. These little bobas are the type that bursts into a liquid when you squeeze it in your mouth. It definitely made the refreshing drink a lot more interesting!
