There’s now an Airbnb for Muslims

LONDON: First, we had Airbnb, and then Noirbnb. But now there’s a traveling site just for Muslims. Muzbnb has popped up to cater for the specific needs of Muslim travellers worldwide. Users can select homes that are alcohol and pork-free, all equipped with prayer spaces and rugs.

There’s also the option of female or male exclusive homes and picking homes close to mosques or halal eateries. Although the spaces are for and run by Muslims worldwide, Muzbnb is not strictly limited to people within the faith – both Muslims and non-Muslims can host and book homes. Muzbnb have been accepting homes for five weeks and at present, two homes from the UK have been listed.

There are places to stay all over the world including USA, Maldives, France, Bosnia, Croatia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, India, New Zealand and Egypt. CEO Hadi Shakuur says Muzbnb was created to encourage Muslims to feel comfortable and accepted while travelling and lodging. (METRO)
