Muslim Travel Bloggers You Need To Follow

Written By: Rayleen Silva

Almost everyone wants to travel, however, not everyone’s experience is the same. Members of certain minority groups require accommodations and often face prejudice from those who do not, and do not want to, understand them. Members of the Muslim community are one example of a minority group that faces any obstacles when trying to travel.

This unfortunate fact means that they need different resources when planning and going on a trip, and sadly, once again, there are not many mainstream resources for them. However, there are some beautiful members of the Muslim community who share their traveling experiences online and also provide travel resources with others from within their community.

Dina is not the most strict and traditional Muslim woman but she is still a Muslim woman nonetheless, and she has been creating content for years that can be helpful to other Muslim women. She vlogs about her travels on her youtube channel and her instagram is full of posts that will inspire you to travel.

Like many minority groups the Muslim community has been lumped together in one bunch, however, they are all very different people. Not all Muslims are Arab and not all Muslims practice their religion exactly the same, but they are linked by the prejudice and struggles they deal with.

All of these travel blogger are connected by their faith and love of travel despite any differences and they can all serve as inspiration for Muslim travelers, because you should not allow anyone’s bigotry to keep you from doing what you want-- including travel.
