    This paper begins by explaining the concept of Islamic Shariah. Its explains the sources of Shariah as well as its broad objectives. The paper then focuses on the implications of the observance of Shariah in the tourism and hospitality industries. This is followed by a description of the recent phenomena of 'Halal tourism' and 'Islamic hospitality' using some examples from selected Muslim countries in Asia and the Middle East. The development of 'Islamically oriented' standards is also discussed giving rise to new concepts such as 'Shariah compliant' which refer to aspects such as alcohol-free, gambling free and the offering of 'Halal' food. Finally the paper discusses future trends and challenges related to halal tourism.
