If you’re looking at the title of this blog and wondering why there’s a ‘#2’, then bust open this link in a new tab so you can see what our Halal Holiday Hackers series is all about.
If you can’t be bothered to do that, here’s a quick refresher. Our new series on Ummahsonic is focusing on our favourite Muslim travel bloggers, who provide the world wide web with the best tips, hacks and inspiration for having incredible holidays while keeping it halal.
Last week, we profiled money-saving blogging A-lister Muslim Travel Girl. This week, we’re looking at Muslim Travelers, a couple whose creative travel tips really betray their not-exactly-super-exciting name.
Hajj season is almost upon us and we have put together this all-inclusive guide to help you make the most of your journey! (Link in bio) Even if you are not planning on going, make the intention to go and read this guide to prepare yourself. May all of those travelling to Hajj this year have a safe journey.

Tired of negative portrayals of Islam in the media, American Muslim couple Zain and Huda started Muslim Travellers as a way to ‘shatter stereotypes about Muslims, build bridges of understanding, and create more empathy in the world through what they love most – travel!’
Since starting their blogging journey, Zain and Huda have visited 50 countries. But far from limiting their blog to glossy snaps of them in faraway places, the couple fill it with posts that offer all sorts of useful advice for the prospective halal holiday maker. For example, they’ve written a comprehensive guide to going on Hajj. They’ve listed the best Muslim friendly honeymoon destinations and a handful of halal holiday spots you might not know about. The couple has even ranked the airlines with the best halal food, which is a surprisingly necessary post.
However, one of their best posts lists 10 travel tips all Muslims should follow when they go abroad. It’s full of good advice, ranging from the practical (keep hijab pins in a Tic-Tac container), to the extremely helpful (get recommendations from local mosques). The blog is typical of all of Zain and Huda’s writing: It’s really useful, to put it simply, and it serves as an excellent guide to getting the most out of your travels, no matter where you go.
They also have a great Instagram. Obviously.
A lesson in selflessness: Nothing in nature lives for itself. Rivers don’t drink their own water. Trees don’t eat their own fruit. The sun doesn’t give heat for itself. Flowers don’t spread fragrance for themselves. Benefiting others is the rule of nature and the path to happiness. . . . . 📷: Bled, Slovenia – one of Europe’s hidden gems!
