Salam and hi everyone ?
The world is living in unprecedented times right now. For many of us, we are still unable to travel abroad. We're sure some of you have had to cancel or defer your travel plans. As avid travellers ourselves, we feel you!
We truly, genuinely believe that you shouldn't stop dreaming about that next place you want to explore. Not being able to travel now shouldn't equate to not thinking about travel at all. Because like all things, this too shall pass, and when that time comes, travellers will go out into the world seeking new places and experiences, as we've always done. It has also been a great reminder of how blessed and privileged we are to be able to travel in normal circumstances, and that its importance can't be understated.
The HHWT Explorers Community
That's why we're excited to announce that we have created the HHWT Explorers travel community
Throughout our journey, one thing has really become the cornerstone behind our work and that’s YOU, the community (: We are continuously humbled by our readers - not only because you help us provide information that in turn helps other Muslim travellers, but also because you share your amazing travel stories with us that genuinely inspire us and others to go out and see the world! It’s even more important to share your stories now that the COVID-19 pandemic has hit us and many of us are unable to travel the world. We
need YOUR help so that we can continue inspiring Muslims to travel the world after the pandemic.
HHWT’s vision and mission and how you can play a partAt HHWT, we strongly believe that travelling is a force of peace. Despite the negativity we hear on the media regarding Islam and Muslims, we know that everyone can play a part to spread peace, understanding and the true beauty of Islam, no matter how small. Changing perspectives and spreading love begins with you! That’s what HHWT is all about – inspiring Muslims to see the world and bringing people from all walks of life together, no matter your religion, age or status ?
