Is it ok to travel now despite raging pandemic in all over the world?

Answer:

Ref. No. 1291/42-636

In the name of Allah the most Gracious the most Merciful

The answer to your question is as follows:

The protection of human life is very important in Islam; Self-destruction is strictly forbidden in the holy Quran. Therefore, one should not travel to a place where the pandemic is severe. However, in the current situation, if travelling is necessary, one can travel with precautions.

And Allah knows best
