Hey, you! Sick of shivering the colder months away here in the UK? Bored that your favourite food outlets have insufficient halal options? Worried that you’re spending too much time on YouTube? Yeah you are.
Well, visit Islam this summer – it’s the new hot destination. Didn’t you know? Awks. The tranquil and alluring shores of Islam have tempted countless wanderers over the years. There’s approximately 1.6 billion people sunning themselves on the cool, sandy beaches or wading in the crystal blue waters of Islam right now. Why not join them? Here’s our handy guide…
Getting there is actually quite simple and cheap, but not necessarily always easy. Islam is accessible by book, conversation or even the internet – but the journey can be fraught with danger – like fake news or delicious things you can’t eat – so watch your back.
We’re going to be honest here: Getting around can sometimes be a bit tricky; there are many people that have many different routes they want to take. But, if you want to find the best one for you we’d recommend this guidebook – a bestseller, so we’re told – called the Qur’an. Available at all good bookshops in or outside Islam.
What to Eat
Again, not totally straightforward. It kind of depends what time of the year it is. Once you arrive you’ll learn that we only really have certain types of food. And in some periods during the year, it’s more advisable to just eat at night.
What to Do
There’s loads to do in Islam. You can spend your free time improving your local community or helping others who aren’t as lucky as you in life. You can spend your time reflecting and praying and learning – all of which is likely to improve your emotional wellbeing and deepen your connection with Allah.
If Islam was a destination, maybe it would look a bit like this. Why did we write this? Because, a quick scan of Twitter reveals the fact that some people, sadly, actually think that Islam is a destination! 🤦

As a Muslim, it’s frustrating sometimes when people get the wrong idea about your faith. Having said that, it’s also pretty cool when you get to educate people and let them know how awesome Islam is (as a religion, not a place obvs). If it was a holiday destination, let’s face it, it would be the best one ever. Move aside, Caribbean.
