He also added and encouraged all ISDEV members to travel far, wide and beyond for Allah SWT has made this earth expansive indeed wherein lies vast knowledge awaiting to be discovered. Thus overcoming fear of travel by inculcating the courage to travel alone is a valuable experience as the benefits that can be derived are not only confined to one’s self but to Islam as well.
