This concluding chapter provides some reflections on the prospects and futures on research issues in relation to Muslim travel cultures and tourist practices and the complexities surrounding it. Drawing on contemporary research literature, the chapter identifies several main themes: the notion of Muslim-friendly tourism, the millennial market and gender dimensions of travel, and lastly the growing importance of the environment and green consumerism in Muslim travel. The chapter concludes by noting the importance of developing a far more sophisticated and empirically grounded critical assessment of Muslim tourism than what has previously usually been the case. The chapter also presents some closing thoughts on the future of research on Muslim practices of tourism consumption and production in the context of businesses, communities, destinations, and the wider socio-political context.
