Tourism in Arab and Muslim countries

Q 1: What is the ruling on traveling to the Arab and Muslim countries for the purpose of tourism, bearing in mind that we do not go to places of amusement?

A: It is not permissible to travel to places of corruption for the purpose of tourism, for this endangers one's faith and morals. The Shari`ah came to block the means leading to evil. (Part No. 26; Page No. 332) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
