Tourism means traveling for recreation and enjoyment. Most people who do long term jobs or
stay at home for a long time badly need a trip to a calm and relaxing place, so that they can give
rest to their mind. Tourism is an activity in which a person goes from one place to another,
which provides him with a kind of pleasure, satisfaction, happiness, and a relaxing moment.
There are two types of tourism domestic tourism and international tourism. Domestic tourism
is an activity in which a person travels to any famous or local destination or any place within the
country. For example, if you are Pakistani and live in Peshawar, Pakistan, and make a trip to the
Hunza valley, this will be an example of domestic tourism. International tourism involves
tourists who visit different countries around the world. For instance, if I am from Pakistan and I
visit UAE for a trip, it will be called international tourism. Now we are going to discuss some
psychological benefits of tourism;

Tourism help people who are suffering from depression:

Traveling is not a complete treatment of depression, but it can make you feel better. Let me
explain how traveling helps you to fight depression. Meeting new people and making friends is
the best treatment of depression. Loneliness is an addictive and hazardous thing. It can also
count as a disease. So that's why meeting new people and exploring new places can heal your
health condition and make you feel better and happier than before. Nature can be your best
friend and also a sound therapy of depression. Exploring nature makes you closer to yourself
and naturally makes you feel better and gives you a feeling of comfort and satisfaction. The
more new places or destinations you explore, it will make you feel better both physically and
mentally, and most importantly, it will help you overcome depression and anxiety.

Tourism and increased feelings of intimacy:

When a couple travels for their honeymoon after marriage, it makes their relationship with
each other better and stronger because you spend more time together, and it will increase your
understanding, and the trust start building more perfectly. In a place where you don't know any
person, your partner is the only one who makes you feel comfortable and better. Traveling
together make you less stress and build the new language of love and romance. It's also a fact
couples who travel more, experience better sexual relationships, and a happy life—traveling
together as a couple makes your relationship more durable. When you spend every second
with your other half, it strengthens your connection. You learn to be respectful with each other
and learn to help and rely on each other. You try to enjoy every second of that time together,
and also you know things and feelings which you didn't know about your partner before. You
learn to divided responsibility with each other according to each other's strengths.

Traveling promote brain health:

Traveling promote overall brain health because when you explore new places or destination
you have to walk a lot and in that, you lose so much of your energy and it makes you tired, and
so you feel sleepy and naturally need more sleep. A Happy and healthy sleep is not just good for
your brain but also helps calm your body, which makes your behavior more decent and kind,
and you get less rude and angry. It also heals you from negativity and makes your vision and
thoughts more positive and broad. Traveling also helps us in forgetting depressing memories
which happen in our life and also helps in getting rid of our adverse mood swings. Even doctors
and scientists also recommend traveling because it helps us in healing many mental and
psychological disorders.

Traveling and mindfulness:

Mindfulness means focusing on the sounds, smell, and touch. If you go to a calming place like
Hunza and Skardu, you can practice this technique and find it more effective. Traveling is an
opportunity to calm your mind. We all become exhausted with our daily life. Traveling is a
perfect way to give your mind rest and exploring the peaceful and most relaxing place in the
world, which helps you to find your inner peace inside yourself. Not just physically but mentally,
you heal yourself with traveling. All the experience you gain from traveling helps you to make
your life better and stress-free. That the real value of traveling.

Traveling can make you more creative:

Yes, traveling can make you creative when you visit a different country or place you experience
a new kind of culture and meet with varying people of the nation, which gives you mature
thought. It increases your knowledge about them, and when you are traveling, you are away
from your daily home or office routine, and you explore nature, and it's a fantastic beauty.
Traveling also helps you to learn and experience the different languages of people and gives us
new ideas which give us a unique perspective to think about the world and increasing our
understanding of life. Writers get new characters for their drama, and films and artists get new
ideas to paint and convey their feelings.

I have made list of major air traveling mistakes so that you might avoid them next time for the purpose of living.

List Of Air Traveling Mistakes

Booking At Exact Time

If you do booking at exact time, then price of the air ticket will also remain very high. You have to concentrate on the advance booking for the purpose of reservation. If you will book the air ticket at the same time then price will be higher of all of the tickets. This mistake is one of the greatest ones which is done by many people at the same time for purpose of air traveling. You should advance booking so that price of the air ticket should be very less and you should not be cheated through. You can use the following time frames for the advance booking of air tickets like.

  • 30 Days Before Traveling
  • 60 Days Before Traveling
  • 90 Days Before Traveling

This advance booking is very beneficial in number of ways that you get price of air ticket very cheap as compared to direct booking on the time. We suggest you always to try the advance booking so that you might get air ticket rate in an extremely affordable price. first online travel company, Pakistan provides special fares to the customer of various airlines. You must book PIA Air Tickets from the company so that they might be fewer problems.

Not Using Best Flight Deals

Some of the people also not use the best flight deals for the booking of Cheap Airline Tickets. Best airline promotion must be used by all of the clients so they get the discount which is available in the price of air ticket. Some of the offers contain buy one get one free ticket option, others this might include transit Hotel stay free of cost but it depends on the airline which provide such kind of Hotel stay. Many promotions offer huge percentage of discount so that the passengers could easily book air tickets for themselves. Enjoy your traveling using the promotion of airline. You must checkout which promotion is also being used by other customers because sometimes a passenger book the promotion which many other people also booking! You must beware of these mistakes and try not to repeat them.

Doctor Zakir Naik who is a known Islamic scholar was out of sight after the coronavirus outbreak. All the people were suspicious to know what are Zakir Naik’s thoughts and opinions about coronavirus. So recently Zakir Naik breaks his silence and told people about the reality of coronavirus. First of all he talked about what is lockdown?

Definition of lockdown:

Zakir Naik defined lockdown that a condition in which you are not allowed to enter or leave an area, city or country due to the emergency is called a lockdown. The emergency can be a bomb, war or a pandemic. More than 50% of the countries are under lockdown due to COVID -19 or Coronavirus disease 2019.

Reason of silence:

Zakir Naik explains the reason for his silence and said: Due to modern technology the world has become a global village and nowadays fake news is available on social media about COVID-19 which is causing more damage so I didn’t want to add to it. He also explain  his reason by giving an example that in January 2020 many video clips were uploaded on social media showing that Chinese who are infected are barking like dogs and being a doctor I know that COVID-19 does not affect your brain. Coronavirus affects your respiratory system.

Fake treatments:

People who do not have a specialty in this field are giving treatments and are explaining step by step how to keep and cut an onion and within 20 minutes you will be cure. I have seen videos in which a person is saying that UK prepared Dettol which kill coronavirus in 2019 and this is a conspiracy of United states.

Wrong Fatwas:

People are giving Islamic aspects about COVID-19 and giving fatwas which is not their field of speciality. As in Islam if you give the right fatwa you will be given double reward and if your fatwa is wrong then you will be given single reward. I didn’t want to give any fatwa because it’s not my job. Let foqaha and Mushtahid do it.

Limited knowledge:

As we know that COVID-19 is a new specie and research is going on and very few people know about COVID-19. Virologist, immunologist and those people which are qualified in pandemics have proper information about COVID-19 so we should not spread news without verifying it. In Surah Hujrat chapter 49 verse 6 Allah said,” Whenever you get information check it’s authenticity”.

Coronavirus and its species:

Those people who are saying that this pandemic is a conspiracy of United States actually do not have correct information. Coronavirus was discovered in 1930s and coronavirus have almost 20 species. Most of them cause no damage to humans while out of 20, 8 species infect and cause disease. Out of eight, five cause mild problems while the remaining three are detrimental. In 1930s coronavirus was first discovered in animals. Coronavirus was first found in chickens where it caused respiratory disease. In the 1940s it was discovered in mice. In humans, coronavirus was first discovered in the 1960s and was called human coronavirus while in the print media this word came forward in 1968.

Detrimental species of coronavirus:

Zakir Naik also mentioned some details about the detrimental coronavirus species which are as follows:

Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS):

SARS is one of the species of coronavirus which break out in 2002 in China and spread in 2003 and a pandemic was declared and after 2004 it disappeared. SARS infected 8098 people worldwide and 774 people died due to SARS with a death rate of 9.55%.

Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS COV):

MERS started spreading in 2012 and infected about 2494 people worldwide and about 858 people died and spread in almost 24 countries. Until now a mortality rate of 34.4% have been reported.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19):

This specie of coronavirus was reported at the end of December 2019 and it started from China and now it is spread in about 184 countries and about 2.83 million people are infected by COVID-19 and about 197,245 people died due to this virus worldwide and have a mortality rate of 6.97%.

Hadith about the pandemic:

Dr Zakir Naik quoted from Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 7 hadith number 5728:

“When you hear news of the break of a plague in a land do not enter that land and if the place you are staying a plague breaks out do not leave that land.”

Hadith number 5729:

“When you hear about a break of a plague in the land do not enter the land and if the country abstain plague breaks out do not exit that country”.

Hadith number 5730:

“When you hear of news of a break of plague in a place do not enter that place and where you stay if a plague breaks out do not run away from that place.”

Hadith number 5707:

“Runaway from a leper as you run away from a lion*

Hadith number 5734:

Hazrat Ayesha (R.A) the beloved wife of Prophet (S.A.W) said, ” The Messenger (S.A.W) said that the plague was sent as a punishment by Allah to the people He wanted to send but for believers, it is a blessing and if a believer stays in the land which is infected by plague having faith in Allah and believe that nothing can fall him except Allah ordain then such people who die they will be given the status of a martyr”.


So our Holy Prophet (S.A.W) mentioned all the instruction about fourteen years before which now the medical science is providing. From the above hadith, we get the information that we should not infect others by visiting other places and not get infected by visiting another place. Hope that after reading this article you must have gained a lot of knowledge regarding coronavirus and Islamic point of view about the pandemic.

Let us talk about the prevailing situation as we know that covid-19 commonly known as coronavirus has become a global problem and all super powers and other countries including Pakistan are fighting against this deadly disease. In these circumstances most countries are under complete lockdown and have sealed their borders and all the flight operations are called off . Governments are taking adequate measures to protect their citizens from this deadly covid -19 pandemic. Now I am going to tell you about the situation in Pakistan according to the recent researches Pakistan was considered as the top tourist spot of 2020 but unfortunately due to this coronavirus outbreak Pakistan tourism industries is going down and Pakistan are facing loses and Pakistan’s economy is going down. Now I am going to give you some travel advices so read till the end:

1.Travel less:

         As Pakistan is a developing country and do not have resources to cope with the current situation so if you are in another country and want to visit or come to Pakistan you should think once more on your decision and the only advice I can give is stay home or in whatever place you are and stay safe.

2.Flight problems:

         As we know that most of the countries have sealed their borders as mention above and flights are cancelled .All the pilots and crew are on vacations but Pakistan has taken a step to bring back their citizens to their homeland and started flight operation so if any Pakistani out there is waiting to come back contact your agent and get information about any available flight and book your seats as soon as possible. This service is only for Pakistanis.

3.Cargo services:

            Cargo aircrafts are exempted from the above restriction in order to bring kits and health  equipments from China and other countries but all of these cargo products are pass through screening and kept in isolation as per advice of health professionals. Pakistan is trying to fulfill all the recommendations of World Health Organization(WHO) but due to lack of resources Pakistan is forced to take these steps.

4.Life Importance:

Government of Pakistan is aware of the importance of human lives and the feeling of Pakistanis living far away from Pakistan and their families that’s why Pakistan has started special flights for Pakistanis only and are bringing back their citizens to their homeland. A sincere advice to all tourists  is that the whole world is suffering from a severe crisis and the tourism too so its better to stay home and stay alive.

5.Global Responsibilities:

         The Government of Pakistan is fully committed to ensuring the safety and security of their people and it is a global responsibility of all humans to stay at home and follow the instructions given by their government .

6.Lockdown problem:

Almost Half of the country is under lockdown and the number of coronavirus cases are increasing and government of Pakistan is trying to control the situation and in these circumstances if tourists are allowed it will make the situation worse so the only advice is to stay home and spend time with your family and stay alive.

7.Domestic or in country tourism:

Nearly all tourist spots are lockdown and people are preferring to stay at home rather then putting their lives in risk .Its our responsibility as a citizen to follow the orders given by government and authorities and do not go out without any genuine reason . All picnic spots like Murree ,Abbottabad ,swat and northern areas of Pakistan are lockdown and any planning is useless so stay home and be a responsible citizen of Pakistan.

8.Risk factors:

         If you still want to plan for visiting a picnic spot think again and if you are not willing to fulfill your responsibilities and do not care about your life and your friends and family so go on your own risk but I will say that  you will  come back home disappointed due to lockdown and security so forget about tourism and try to stay home.

9.Lack of health resources:

As Pakistan is a underdeveloped country and her weakest point is health so in these circumstances the only way to protect yourself from coronavirus is to take adequate precautions as it is a famous saying “Prevention is better than cure” . If you love your life then stay home.

10.Improper Management:

As Pakistan is suffering from corruption, money laundering and other issue so their focus is less  on health sector and in this outbreak Pakistan do not have proper management in hospitals and the population of Pakistan is way more then the resources and its very difficult to manage so tourists are requested to wait until the condition get better after which all tourists will be welcomed so have patience and you will get reward by visiting the top tourist location of 2020.
