Top Travel Tips: Passing through Airport Security Efficiently and Hassle-Free!

Travel security is undeniably strict and tight in recent times, but we must always remember that airport security workers are doing their jobs to ensure the safety of everyone. We, like any other traveller, expect to travel feeling safe and secure, and if it were that airport security was lax at screening passengers we would not have the comfort in travelling that we do today.

When passing through the security section to head to your airplane’s gate, it is normal to feel tense when seeing officers and security stationed everywhere and staring you down, but before going in remind yourself to be calm and patient, and prepare yourself and your luggage well before travelling to follow all the rules they have posted on the TSA website and around the screening area to ensure that you do not have to go through any extra screening.

Top Travel Tips: 7 Must-Have Travel Items for your Next Trip

1.       Handy Du’as - Begin with a Bismillah!

     We should remember Allah at all times during our travels, especially before beginning a journey in which there are many du’a (supplications) from the Prophetic ahadith that we should make.

One handy way to have these du’as on you at all times is to download an app for your phone called “myDuaa: Fortress of a Muslim” (Paid App) which contains all the du’as of the popular little book of the same name. You could carry along that book with you, but this app is an organized way of finding the du’as you need quickly and efficiently.
