Top Countries For Muslim Traveler

Assalamualaikum. Ahlan Wasahlan.

As I mentioned so many times before, travelling makes us slightly different compared to those who are not. We experience different environment such as culture, climate, and food!
Sometimes, we tend to appreciate what we have back in our hometown when travelling around.

However, as a Muslim we are very particular of our obligations towards our God.
We need to perform our obligatory five times daily prayer, eat halal food, and cover our aurah/body parts to name a few.

Not all countries can offer convenience to Muslim travelers around the world.
As fact and figure, Islam is the second largest religion with around 1.6 billion followers which is 23.2% of the world's population and expected to grow to 26.5% of the world's population by 2030.

With that figure, we can conclude that there are a lot of Muslim travelers out here travelling across the continents to spend their money. That is what each nation wants, having tourists spend their money in their respective country to contribute to their Gross National Income (GNI).

Tourism sector is the best back-up economic plan for all countries, methinks.
Just look at UAE, they realized that their oil is going to finish soon that they immediately develop Dubai to become one of the most top destinations in the world. 
Nowadays, everybody knows what Dubai is. It is a freaking rich city located at the Arab Peninsular. Same goes to Doha, Qatar.
