6. It is preferable for one to begin his journey on a Thursday. Hence if it is possible for one to travel on a Thursday, then one should begin his journey on a Thursday.

عن كعب بن مالك رضي الله عنه قال لقلما كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يخرج إذا خرج في سفر إلا يوم الخميس ( بخاري #2949 )

Hazrat Ka‘b bin Maalik (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said, “It was the Mubaarak habit of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) that generally whenever he intended embarking on a journey, he would depart on a Thursday.”

 

عن كعب بن مالك رضي الله عنه أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم خرج يوم الخميس في غزوة تبوك وكان يحب أن يخرج يوم الخميس ( بخاري #2950 )

Hazrat Ka‘b bin Maalik (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) departed on Thursday for the battle of Tabuk, and he used to like departing on a Thursday.”

7. Ensure that you have sufficient provisions for the journey e.g. petrol, spending money etc.

عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما قال كان أهل اليمن يحجون ولا يتزودون ويقولون نحن المتوكلون فأنزل الله تعالى وَتَزَوَّدُوا فَإِنَّ خَيْرَ الزَّادِ التَّقْوَى ( تفسير ابن كثير )

Hazrat ibn ‘Abbaas (radhiallahu ‘anhuma) reports, “The people of Yemen used to perform Hajj without taking along provisions for the journey. They used to say that we are the ‘Mutawakkiloon’ (Those relying solely on Allah Ta‘ala and therefore not in need of taking provisions). Thereafter, Allah Ta‘ala revealed the verses:

وَتَزَوَّدُوا فَإِنَّ خَيْرَ الزَّادِ التَّقْوَى

And take your provisions (for the journey), and certainly the best provision is taqwa (self restraint)”.

عن ابن عمر رضي الله عنهما قال إن من كرم الرجل طيب زاده في السفر ( تفسير ابن كثير )

It is reported that Hazrat ibn ‘Umar (radhiallahu ‘anhuma) said, “It is part of the honor and nobility of a man that he takes along sufficient provisions during his journey.”
