    Me too. I watch some vlogs a few years ago and these people are Muslims who live in UK. It seems like they find it relatively easy to practice there

    Some more info about Hijrah on this site

    http://puremuslimvibe.com/hijrah

    Check out the Tangier photo album section. Sometimes people describe Morocco as "third world" but in Tangier, you will see Bentleys and villas. The main downside for Tangier (that made me decide not to live their long term) is the children's health care is not so good. Like it might even be lethal because of incompetency.

    There is a Dr who was the head of a children's department in Holland has a pediatric practice in Tangier (Cabinets de Pédiatrie) and he is recommended by lots of people. He told me that Rabat (and I think also Casablanca) have good pediatric health care facilities.

    You don't need to have a residency permit to build a house in Morocco. The only restriction I have heard of is if a "foreigner" was buying up mass amounts of land. But for things like buying some land to build a few houses, that should be fine insha'Allah.

    With regards to visas, they have a 3-month rolling "tourist" visa. So you can come and stay for 3 months, then cross the border and enter again and get a 3-month renewal. If living in Tangier someone can get a ferry from Tangier to Spain for a day trip and then come back to Morocco and be granted another 3 month Visa. Or they can drive/bus from Tangier to Ceuta (which is an autonomous city administered by Spain) and then get the 3-month renewal. People living nearer to the Mauritania part of Morocco can travel to the Mauritania border, walk across the border and back to get the 3-month visa renewal.

    If someone wants to get a Moroccan Iqama/residency permit there are different ways to do it.

    - One way is to deposit around £20,000 into your Moroccan bank account (a type of account that "foreigners" can open in Morocco) and then apply for the residency permit by taking documents to the Moroccan police station where they review the applications and give approval. (The police told my friend that you can withdraw the money afterwards. This means you could actually just borrow the money from a friend and then return it after you get the Iqama)

    - Another way to get Iqama is to marry a Moroccan

    - Another way is to start a business in Morocco

    - Another way is to get a registered job (Officially registered by the ministry of labour)

    - Another way is to buy a house in Morocco and then have around £8,300 in your bank account. I'm not sure if the house has to be of a certain value, but I know you can buy apartments in Morocco for around £20,000 / £30,000


    I remember reading a story about how renting an understairs cupboard in London (as a bedroom) was advertised at £500 per month lol.. Morocco is so much better, for so many reasons, for deen and lifestyle, for the children and future generations insha'Allah.

    Morocco might not be perfect, but only Jannah will be, but Morocco is definitely better than anywhere in the UK. I think I prefer the more village areas of Morocco as opposed to city life, because it's more conservative in the village areas, no tourists. Awama in Tangier is more conservative than the city centre of Tangier, but I think my favourite village area I visited was on the outskirts of Rissani where people were so welcoming, the woman would recite Qur'an in the Masjid every day, and the locals would invite us to their homes, even though they only just met us.

    In Morocco Pure Arabic and English might be more common and accepted.

    I personally prefer Morocco, because from what I gather, it is more religious. But I am not an expert on Turkey, so just relaying the info some of the brothers mentioned.
    Jazakallah khayr. Morocco & Turkey are the two places i have in mind for future hijra Insha allah. The benefit for both is that they are not too far from the U.K. either so makes it easier to fly back to see family etc. From the figures you’ve given, it seems very affordable to build a house in Morocco so I’ll have to see what the figures for Turkey are like too. But it’ll all probably change again anyway as Im planning on making the move in the next 5 years Insha allah

    It's really amazing to be surrounded by your fellow Muslims. Even the ground that you walk on is Muslim ground.. You can feel at ease to pray in the park, you can walk into any shop and buy the food, as its all halal, they have many Islamic schools, some free private schools, some of which even pay the children an allowance for achievements. So many masjids, even in the malls.

    If anyone wants to be added to a hijrah WhatsApp group send me a PM (if that works on Ummah forums?) there is a female group and a male group.
