<table bgcolor="FFFFFF" border="0" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0" width="100%"><tr><td>To Muslim who decided to travel

Alhamdu Lelah, recently , the phenomenon of families (Husband and wife
and sons and daughters) traveling abroad, has increased. Sometimes sons
and daughters and the mother travel without the father to spend vacation
in infidel country or some Arab country that is full of sins

Unfortunately, some of us, May Allah show them the right guidance, are
proud of this and try to make propaganda for the country they have
visited, disregarding the prohibited things that could spoil our
religion and make them commit sins like taking photos and witnessing the
bad morals which affect their morals. Some of it is magic and
foreseeing in which the prophet Mohammed (p.b.u.h) said: He who seeks
fortuneteller and believes in what he says is infidel). Beside that,
youth tend to spend , excessively, money on both what is not permissible
in Islam like drinking alcohol and attending dancing clubs.

It is common , during the days that proceed the vacation that some men
taking their wives to photography shops before traveling to take a photo
to the passport and let other men photographing them without shyness or
jealousy or even without fear to exceed the limits! And this is not
allowed in Islam, as our clerics say, and even if the photographer is a
female, as the Prophet said: every photographer is in hell) and said:
(He who made an image shall be asked to make it alive in the Judgment
Day, Yet, he will not be able to). Travel for tourism doesn’t count as
such a reason to allow what is legally prohibited, and in our country a
lot of nice places for tourism like Abha and Al Taef and the
surrounding area.

A lot of travelers urge others and invite them to travel like them as
they praise it and bring pictures that allures other people, forgetting
the prophet’s saying: ( He who creates a bad sunnah( tradition) shall
bear its sin and the sins of those who do it) narrated by Imam Muslim.

So they would say proudly, we visited the US and Europe and we entered
the church. And the worst is that some people who would travel around
the world.. Do not schedule a visit Mecca to do Omrah, although they
might do tourism inside the same country Saudi Arabia.

Photographing women and the negative effects of traveling:

Shiekh Abdul Rahman Al Jabrein has been asked about the phenomenon of
family-travel to Arab, Western, Asian, European or American countries,
and the need to take photograph for wife and children in order to do so
as that is known by our clerics is that taking photographs is forbidden
in Islam except for an extreme need. And he has been asked also about
spending a lot of money on things that are wither permissible or
impermissible in Islam, as well as violations of Islamic rules
concerning women such as veil and makeup and witnessing a lot of sins
that would be tempting .

He answered:

Al Hamdulellah and peace and prayers be upon our prophet Mohammed , his associates and companions.

A lot of Ahadeeth( speeches of the prophet peace be upon him) have been
narrated about prohibiting photography such as mentioned above and it
all refer to pictures, whether sculptured or painted. These pictures
shall be damaged as Angels do not enter a home contains it. Yet, as
there is some need for pictures such as for passports to travel for
medication or study, our religious scholars allowed it.

Thus , I believe that taking photographs for tourism is not allowed,
specially when accompanying women and the family which consequently
would result in a lot of bad effects such as:

1- foreign men look at the photos of the women in borders and it is
known that the face of the woman shall not be revealed for foreigners.

2- such travels are of no use and it is a waste of time and money and
it can’t be deemed to be done for knowledge of cultures of other
countries as travelers do not make it for acquiring knowledge and wisdom
and remembering Allah as much as they make it for relaxation and
witnessing the prohibited things.

3-Wasting time and money in the benefit of the infidels who are enemies
of Islam in a way that makes them stronger to launch war on Islam.

4- Spending much time in doing the things that are allowed in Islam to
the extent that they forget to do what is requested from Muslims to do,
hence they might have big sins like committing adultery and drinking
alcohol and hearing music and attending dancing clubs and spending a lot
of money in doings sins and things that are renounced in Islam. All
that goes to the benefit of the infidels and launching war against

5- Muslim women do fall in sins and act against Islamic rules as some of
them do not wear the Hijab(veil) and reveal her face and hair imitating
infidel women while claiming that she can’t put the veil among women
with full make up and then she falls in doing the sin of imitating
infidel women and as a result her husband or father would not be able to
prevent her.

6- Travelling to these countries without a reason but tourism may lead
to do sins and humiliate Muslims when some of them curse the Islamic
rules and praise the infidels. Here we advice Muslims to preserve
themselves ; their minds , their families , money and religion and
do not travel but for an urgent need.

By Abd Allah bin Abd Al Rahman Al Jabrein.

Negative sides of travelling to Arab or Western countries:

1- Admiring the infidels (if the destination is for a Western country)
and hence praising them and deciding not to go back to home land and
this not allowed in Islam as Sheikh Ibn Othaimeen said. Allah said:
(Thou wilt not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day,
loving those who resist Allah and His Messenger) Al Mujadelah 22

2- A lot of Muslims have admired clothes of the infidels

3- Muslim women unveil their faces and hair without shyness as the
husband or father or the brother do not mind and might even have ordered
them to do so till Muslim women got annoyed of the veil once they come
back to their country and leaded to creating new designs of the veils.

4- Muslim sons and daughters would see a lot of actions and deeds that
are not allowed in Islam as soon as they arrive in the airport while the
parents can not prevent them from seeing these prohibited things which
means a bad raising for them.

The messenger (peace be upon him) said: (You all are responsible) and
said: (Allah would ask every responsible person, whether he saved or
wasted what he was responsible for) Do they people forgot the dooms Day?

5- Generally The parents would deny those who commit big sins or even
the small ones and this is an obligatory action in Islam if abandoned,
the Muslim would sin. Also, the parents would not be able to prevent
themselves, or their offspring, from watching prohibited deeds and the
result would be sickness of the heart and evoking for the lusts as well
as facing punishment in both lives.

6- Girls would lose the feeling of shyness as they see the alluring
scenes and shameful ones and we can see this effect on those who come
back from the Western countries.

7- Sons and daughters would get used to what is prohibited in Islam such
as: drinking alcohol, gambling, nightclubs, dancing, semi-naked
clothes, driving for women, attending matches and wrestling and others.
This would make them curse their country once they come back as it lacks
all of it which they call advancement in culture while in fact this
vise versa is true. Allah said: (Truly it is not their eyes that are
blind, but their hearts which are in their breasts)

8- The family would love these countries, whether it is neighboring or
far ones, Arab or Western and we see that those who have visited it
once, insist on visiting it again whatever it costs and they become
addicted to travel!!

9- They will find it easy to see any prohibited deeds in their country as they saw much greater ones out.
10- Praising the weather of those countries and cursing the weather of Saudi Arabia, which means they will curse the life.

High-ranking member of the committee of the Islamic clerics have been asked the following:

Muslim youth are facing a phenomenon of traveling abroad after they get
married or during vacation for tourism as they claim that even some
preservative families and clerics have issued a fatwa permitting that.

First: If the parent knew that his son will travel after his marriage,
is it a must to prevent him? And what is the evidence in Islam?
Answer: The parent shall prevent his son from traveling if this was only
for tourism, if he has the ability to do so, as it will harm his son
and his religion. If he doesn’t have the ability to prevent him, he
shall advise him and do not give him money as it will help him instead.

Second: If the parent knows that his son-in-law will travel, shall he
prevent his daughter? And shall she adhere by her father’s request or
adhere to her husband to travel for tourism?

Answer: the father shall prevent his daughter from traveling with her husband for tourism and she shall not agree with him.

Third: Shall the parent put condition in the wedding contract of his
daughter that she will not travel with her husband for tourism to the
Western countries as it is full with great sins or the Arab countries
that do not abide by the Islamic rules?

Answer: Yes, he has the right to do so.

Fourth: What is your advice for those who are psychologically defeated
against the Western culture and praise their industrial and
materialistic advance and proud of traveling to these countries after
they get married?

Answer: I advise them to fear Allah and stop traveling to these
countries as it as a lot of bad effects on our religion and they shall
not be allured of what the infidels have as Allah prepared greater
things for Muslim believers that is will last for ever

Fifth: Shall the Muslim answer an invitation from those who come back
after traveling to these countries as they usually hold celebrations
after their return ?

Answer: It is advised not to answer their invitation as this would be
like indirect encouragement for them to travel. Yet, it is better to
refuse it as a punishment.

Finally: Dear parent, who is proud of his religion: to cancel the
decision of traveling in response to your family’s request is much
easier than regret it on the Judgement Day as it will be considered as
cheating those whom you are responsible for.

You shall compare and think about it. Then, decide! You are the only responsible for it.

Allah said: (The Day whereon neither wealth nor sons will avail) Ashuara
88. And said: (That Day shall a man flee from his own brother) Abasa
