Alhamdulillah i performed Hajj last year and Umra three times before.


i have made a firm intention to visit Palestine next inshallah,


but i was wondering if anyone has been on holiday to any islamic country, other than these, which is really worth going to in terms of

learning more about previous nations,

or places with historical islamic artefacts? etc etc.

I think Makka and Madinah would be the best place to go for that!!!
But many other Islamic countries have artefacts, it just depends on the types of artefacts u are interested in.

That is turning out to have been an erroneious statement. It had to do with the University hand book at one of the Moroccan Universities and the Qur'an was not altered. Just the student hand book.

The hijab and niqaab are mandatory for Muslim Women when in public. Morocca has many non-Muslim Residents and the law was changed so it is not required for them to wear the hijab when in public.

Morocco does have some very old ruins that date back to the Early days of Islam. Fez is an excellent City for a Muslim interested in Islamic history to visit. Some other excellent choices and worth visiting are Sidi Yahia and Sidi Slimane. Both small but older villages with a very rich Muslim History. Hard to find tho. Transportation to them can be found at Kenitra. There are several buses a day going to them. Neither have and hotels, but sidi Slimane does have some restaurants with excellent Berber food.

If you have been to Mecca and Medina and will go to Jerusalem next year. Then there are so many muslim countries you could visit, each with its own wealth of islamic history. The places I am planning on visiting are Spain (Grenada, Seville, Cordoba etc) and Turkey. Inshallah i am planning to visit spain next month and turkey at some future point.

Morocco Omits Verse from Curricula
Submitted by MSA on Wed, 2006-10-04 06:23. International News

Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research Al-Habib Al-Malki argued that the move came to fight extremism.

IslamOnline.net RABAT — The Ministry of Education in Morocco has omitted from preparatory school curricula a Qur'anic verse, hadith and a photo of a hijab-clad girl, claiming that it moved to nip extremism in the bud.

"They omitted verse no. 31 of surat An-Nur, which reads: "And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and be modest, and to display of their adornment only that which is apparent, and to draw their veils over their bosoms…..," Abdul Kareem Al-Howeshri, the head of the non-governmental Islamic Education Association, told IslamOnline.net Tuesday, October 3.

He said they also erased a hadith narrated by Abu Dawood that Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) cursed men dressing up in women's clothes and women putting on men's clothes.
That is the News story that was misunderstood world wide. The verse was removed from the School Curricula, not from the Qur'an



The other links about the hijab ban, I am still searching for more info.










Can you tell I love Morocco and I do not want to think anything bad about it, until I have exhausted researching all derogatory comments.

if you are planning a trip to saudi via palestine then when entering israel you must get your visa stamped on a seperate document not on your passport as you normally would.
the saudi authoroties have a problem with that and it may cause u trouble when in jeddah.

i was told this by friends who have been to palestine....and my sis who went last year......lucky so-and-so!

the thing you say about Morocco isn't correct. In some jobs you cannot where the hijab (but the job is not apropriate for the muslima anyway). I go to Morocco every year ,i'm morrocan. I can wear my hijaab or niqaab thats not a problem. I think you confusing it with Tunis. In Tunis your not aloud o wear a hijaab anymore.

I went to tunisia a few years ago and heard the same. men werent allowed to keep beards, except in a few very religious areas, and women werent allowed the hijabs. people werent allowed to stay in masjids other than at namaz times. I heard the authorities were very anti islamic and 'Islamists' would 'disappear'...... The tunisians were generally very friendly and hospitable people though, and it was a beautiful country.

One thing which i really didnt like very much, why have they adopted french as their language!!!!

Is it french in Morocco also? I had friends who attended a course in morocco a few years back, they came back wearing the moroccon robes, now they wear cool!

Although many Southern Moroccans do speak French. Morocco got the country back from France in the mid 1950s. Morocco was divided into French Morocco and Spanish Morocco . The Northern section being Spanish and the Southern being French. Tanja (Tangiers was independant) In the 1950s they both were liberated and in the late 1950s under Hassan Five the Country reunited as Maroc.

The Jilabas the men traditionaly wear are very nice and very comfortable.

Arabic was the Dominat language the last time I was there, but Spanish and French are both still widely understood especialy near Casablanca. Kenitra was still predominatly French and Spanish.

Thank you for the info brother woodrow. The language thing in Tunisia seemed so strange, having come from an ex colonised country myself (pakistan), where very few people spoke the language of the colonists. Inshallah i will also visit Morocco at some point in the future as i have heard so much good about it.

Its funny, when you really start looking at the countries you would like to visit, the list seems to grow and grow and grow!

Yes, my Tunesian friend said tome that the rulers in Tunis are now Jews. But Allaho a3lm.

In Casablanca,Rabat they talk french a lot. But in the North and South (Sahara) they just talk Morrocan.

Cool friends you got there :D

No I never did go to Beni Maalal. However, there are quite a few places in the mountains that have beutiful waterfalls.

The Dra'a Valley is another nice spot to visit. Although it would be very inhospitable to live in. Sadly last I heard there has been an ongoing dispute between Morocco and Algeria over ownership of the land.

I should mention the coastal city of Tetouan is the cleanest city I have ever seen any place on Earth. Everything always looks freshly scrubbed including the roads and sidewalks.

I live in Tetouan, an will tell you how that comes. Look bro the King of Morroco ikes to come to that city a lot. So the people scub it always. I also live in Tanger, when you enter it it normaly smells a lot! But one day when the king came i saw them scrubbing and the bad smell was gone. I Tetouan they always paint the subways and take care of the flowers and Three's on the road.

Masha Allah brother you describe it in a very hartwarming way. Areyou from Pakistani origin also. Anyway Morrocco is a beutifull country but most of the tourists are being robbed and stuff. Even the Morrocan that do not live In Morocco are paying a higher price in the market. Bcz they think money grows on our backs and we are just stupid.

My parents were originally from Pakistan and moved to england when i was very young. So i am, unfortunately, a foreigner in a foreign land. Funny thing is when i went back to pakistan i was also a foreigner in foreign land, wierd!

This is also the case in pakistan, and most other muslim countries i suspect. Whenever there are 'VIP' visitors everything gets cleaned up and made to look good, as soon as the VIPs are gone everything is left to go bad again......

I do not see where you said anything offensive. we all have limited vision and we can only know what we are shown. Some of us have only seen the best of some locations and others have only seen the worse.

In order to know the truth and to be able to make good choices we need to see all views, from different perspectives.

Hashish is the resin from the top of Marijuana plants. It is smoked in many Mediterranian area countries. It is illegal in most if not all of them. Although it is illegal and the penalties are very harsh, it is often openly and blatently smoked in some countries. Sadly it is what many Westerners think of when they think of Arab nations.

Another problem is many people are under the impression that everybody who smokes a Hookah is smoking hashish. There are many Hookah parlors and Hookah rooms throughout the mideast, but most are legal and the people are not smoking hashish.

Isnt Hashish what is commonly known as cannabis? Although i dont think it is as common as the poster made it out to be earlier on. The pipes people smoke normally contain flavoured molasses or tobacco.

I have Yemeni friends and from what i know Yemeni people are not big on smoking Hashish.....

Besides, the Prophet (SAW) blessed the land of Yemen, and so just for that reason alone it would be worth visiting :)

Hmmm.. I've always known Hasheesh as any and every type of drug.

Yemenis however don't smoke cannabis, but they're known for chewing Qaat.
not all of them ofcourse, some.

Morroco's government is a constitutional monarchy.

Morroco's head executive is the king, who acts as a political and religious leader.

If you want change in Morroco, then you'll need to either send a letter of concern to Morroco's monarch or support a political party in Morroco that aims at removing the king from holding power over religion.
