Travelling in a Muslim country during Ramadan

Question:

I am Catholic, but I like to respect Muslim traditions if I travel in a Muslim country. I plan to travel in Iran and Dubai at the beginning of Ramadan beginning I think on October 4th. Do you think it is not respectful or at your point of view it is no problem travelling during that period?

Fatwa:

All perfect praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His Slave and Messenger.

First of all, we thank you for visiting our site and we hope that you continue visiting it and contacting us.

As regards travelling to Muslim countries in Ramadan, we do not see any religious harm in it provided one abides by the general etiquettes that Islam advocates, respects the Muslims and does not propagate something that contradicts their religious principles.

On this occasion we call you to embrace Islam which is the Religion of Allah and the religion of all the Prophets, Allah says (which means): {Truly, the religion with Allah is Islam.}[Qur'an 3:19]. This is the religion which 'Eesaa (Jesus), may Allah exalt his mention, was upon, and he gave glad tidings about the coming of the Prophet Muhammad ( sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention )) may Allah exalt his mention; for details you can refer to Fatwa 81396.

You can be sure that if you read the translation of the meaning of the Quran while pondering its meaning, really seeking the Truth and leaving aside your desires, you will find this Truth.

Please refer to Fataawa: (plural of Fatwa) 88906, 88276, 81979 and 82427 about an introduction to Islam, and Fataawa: 88187 and 83990 about the reality of 'Eesaa (Jesus), may Allah exalt his mention, and the mention of Prophet Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) in the Torah and the (Injeel, not the new Testament).

Allah Knows best.
