The most magical of creatures are tucked away in corners of the world. Take a round trip ticket with us for Eco-Friendly explorations on National Geographic's 2013 Photo Contest (ends 30 November 2013) created by the brilliance of Allah almighty.

Allah encourages site-seeing in the Qur'an,
Say, [O Muhammad], "Travel through the land and observe how He began creation. Then Allah will produce the final creation. Indeed Allah , over all things, is competent."(Qur'an, 29:20)
With the help of National Geographic's annual photography contest we invite you to travel from Indonesia to the Himalayan mountains, and back to a village in India. They're so beautiful Subhan-Allah! (glory and exalted is God). The views are breathtaking, so take a moment, say bismillah (with God's name) and soak up the intricate details and flawless artistry from none other than our Creator. Alhamdulillah! (all praise and thanks belongs to God).
