Muslim Tours

“And what can make you know what is the steep path? It is freeing the slave or feeding [the hungry] on a day of severe hunger, an orphan of a near relationship, or a needy person in misery. Then will he be of those who believe, and enjoin patience, and enjoin deeds of kindness and compassion.”
(Surat al-Balad, 90:12-17)

Muslim Tours

As the land of the first qibla, the Holy Land has much to offer, including Salat at the Masjid al-Aqsa, excursions to classic Umayyad and Ayyubid sites, and MEJDI exclusives, such as home-cooked meals, traditional musical performances, activities with Palestinian artists, students, journalists, poets, refugees, and much more. With special access to hard-to-reach sites—and decades of Israeli-Palestinian relationship building to ensure a smooth, safe trip—MEJDI helps Muslim groups explore their Islamic heritage, connecting travelers to other members of the global ummah, including local imams, sheikhs, policymakers, tribal leaders, and more.

Arabic writing.While any company can show you sites and stones, MEJDI helps group leaders choose an honorable path by ensuring your tour is founded on the Islamic tenets of justice, peace, and socially and environmentally responsible business practices. Just as our name means “honor” and “respect” in Arabic, MEJDI’s goal is to honor both clients and communities, enabling groups to honor the areas they visit by supporting Palestinian businesses and engaging with the local Palestinian community. The result is a uniquely customized tour like no other that fits your group’s values, needs, and goals.

Renowned and time-honored, these sites are must-sees for a reason.
