Q: If someone wants to settle permanently in a kuffaar country such as, US, Canada, Australia, etc. Is there any prohibition or discouragement in Islam for this?
A: It is important and an obligation that the environment and surrounding be one that is deeni friendly and supports you in deen.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
