Duas Pertaining to Travel – Part One

Written by

1. When the traveller is departing, then he should bid farewell to his family through reciting the following dua:

أَسْتَوْدِعُكَ اللهَ الَّذِيْ لَا تَضِيْعَ وَدَائِعُهُ

I entrust you to Allah, the One whose trusts are never destroyed. [1]

2. The family of the traveller should recite the following dua when bidding him farewell:

أَسْتَوْدِعُ اللهَ دِيْنَكَ وَأَمَانَتَكَ وَخَوَاتِيْمَ عَمَلِكَ

I place your Deen, your trust (wife, children and subordinates) and your final actions (at the time of death) in the care and trust of Allah Ta‘ala. [2]

21. Keep necessary personal information on yourself, as well as any documents that you may require on your journey (e.g. passport, ID. etc.).

11. Do not inconvenience any of your companions in any way during the journey.

Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “A perfect Muslim is he who does not inconvenience any person through his tongue or his hand.” [1]

Sunnats and Aadaab of Safar (Traveling)

Written by

1. Before embarking on a journey (i.e. travelling to a place which is 78 km or more), one should perform two rakaats of salaah. This salaah is known as Salaatus Safar.

Hazrat Mut’im bin Miqdaam (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “There is no action that a person can leave behind with his family before setting out on a journey which is more virtuous than the two rakaats (Salaatus Safar) which he performs by them.” [1]

It is reported that whenever Hazrat Ibnu Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) intended embarking on a journey, he would first proceed to the musjid and perform salaah. [2]

Safar (Travelling)

Written by

The deen of Islam has presented laws and injunctions, and sunnats and aadaab (etiquettes), to teach man how to conduct in all situations and all conditions.

Just as the deen of Islam has provided guidance to a person when he is residing in his hometown, similarly it has provided him with guidance as to how he should conduct when he is out on safar (travelling on a journey).

In other words, the deen of Islam is so complete, comprehensive and perfect that it has taken a person’s condition into consideration at all times and all situations and provided him with appropriate guidance.

Hence, we find that Shariah has given concession to a travelling person to perform two rakaats in place of the four rakaats salaah. Similarly, Shariah has given concession to a traveling person not to fast in Ramadhaan, and instead keep qadha of the missed fasts after the month of Ramadhaan.
