Prayer Before Traveling; A Best Explanation

Peace Center: Hi all readers! I’m sure we’ve all traveled. That is a normal activity that is usually done by someone. When someone is about to leave home, he will not know what will happen to him on the trip and after he returns home. Maybe what will happen is a good thing, but it can also be a bad thing. That is why we are strongly encouraged to pray before we travel. For this reason, in this article I will explain the best prayer before traveling.

By the way, do you already know what is the best prayer before traveling? If you don’t know that yet, then you should read this article to the end!

As usual, before I explain the best prayer before traveling further, I will first quote one hadith that is specifically related to our discussion. The hadith I mean is as follows;

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بِنْ سَرْجَس رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : كَانَ النَّبِيُّ إِذَا سَافَرَ يَقُوْلُ : اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ الصَّاحِبُ فِيْ السَّفَرِ , وَالْخَلِيْفَةُ فِيْ الْأَهْلِ , اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنْ وَعْثَاءِ السَّفَرِ , وَكَآبَةِ الْمُنْقَلَبِ , وَمِنْ دَعْوَةِ الْمَظْلُوْمِ , وَمِنْ سُوْءِ الْمَنْظَرِ فِيْ الْأَهْلِ وَالْمَالِ

From Abdullah bin Sarjas radliyallahu ‘anhu, he said, “If the Prophet (Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would travel, then he prayed, “O our Lord! You are a Travel companion and Substitute in the family. O our Lord! Verily, I protect you from the hardships of travel, the sadness of the place of return, the call of those who are judged, and from the poor outlook on family and property.”

Now, do you know what the best prayer before traveling in the hadith above? The prayer is as follows;

اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ الصَّاحِبُ فِيْ السَّفَرِ , وَالْخَلِيْفَةُ فِيْ الْأَهْلِ , اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنْ وَعْثَاءِ السَّفَرِ , وَكَآبَةِ الْمُنْقَلَبِ , وَمِنْ دَعْوَةِ الْمَظْلُوْمِ , وَمِنْ سُوْءِ الْمَنْظَرِ فِيْ الْأَهْلِ وَالْمَالِ

O our Lord! You are a Travel companion and Substitute in the family. O our Lord! Verily, I protect you from the hardships of travel, the sadness of the place of return, the call of those who are judged, and from the poor outlook on family and property.

All Readers! If we look at the prayer above, then we will know that the core of the prayer is to ask God to guard everything that we do not want to travel and when we return home; a difficult trip, sadness at the place of return (home and others), disruption in travel, and so forth.

Actually, the prayer above is not the only best prayer before traveling. There are still many other prayers. The above prayer is only one example.

That is a brief explanation of the best prayer before traveling. May be useful! Amen!

I think that’s enough for this article. May be useful! Amen!
