Hadith About Dua For Travelling 

Ibn ‘Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) reported:

Whenever the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) mounted his camel for setting out on a journey, he would recite: “Allahu Akbar (Allah is Greatest),” thrice. Then The Prophet (ﷺ) would supplicate:

  “Subhanal-ladhi sakh-khara lana hadha, wa ma kunna lahu muqrinin, wa inna ila Rabbina lamunqalibun. Allahumma inna nas’aluka fi safarina hadh al-birra wat-taqwa, wa minal-‘amali ma tarda. Allahumma hawwin ‘alaina safarana hadha, watwi ‘anna bu’dahu. Allahumma Antas-Sahibu fissafari, wal-Khalifatu fil- ahli. Allahumma inni a’udhu bika min wa’ta’is-safari, wa kaabatil- manzari, wa su’il-munqalabi fil-mali wal-ahli wal-waladi

Translation: Far removed from imperfection is the One Who has made this subservient to us, for we have no power to subjugate it, and certainly to our Rubb shall we return. O Allah, we ask You during this journey of ours for righteousness, piety and such deeds as are pleasing to You. O Allah, make easy for us this journey of ours and make the distance short for us. O Allah, You are our Companion during the journey and the Guardian of the family and the property in our absence. O Allah, I seek refuge in You from the hardships of travelling, unhappiness connected with ghastly scenes and evil turns in property and family.”

When The Prophet (ﷺ) returned, he recited this supplication making addition of these words: 

“We are those who return; those who repent; those who worship and those who praise our Rubb.”

[Muslim](Riyad as-Salihin 972)

Shorten the distance for him and make the journey easy for him.” Tirmidhi (Riyad as-Salihin 978)

The Teachings of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ

Hadith on Travel: The Prophet’s supplication for a journey

Ibn Umar reported: When the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, would mount his camel for travel, he would exalt Allah three times and then say, “ Glory be to Him who has made this subservient to us, for we have no power over it ourselves, and to our Lord we shall return. (43:14) O Allah, we ask You during this journey for righteousness, fear of Your, and deeds that are pleasing to You. O Allah, make this journey easy for us and make the distance short for us. O Allah, You are our companion during the journey and the guardian of the family. O Allah, I seek refuge in You from the hardship of travel, ugly scenes, and an evil return to our property and family. ” When the Prophet returned, he would say these words and add to them, “ We are those who return, those who repent, those who worship and who praise our Lord .”

Dua For Safar (Supplication For The Travelling)

Posted by Ahmed Abdulla | Duas

Dua For Safar (Supplication For The Travelling)

What does Safar mean? 

Safar  (سفر) is an Arabic term which refers to travelling, going on a journey, or transportation. It is also the second Islamic month of the lunar calendar and the month where Muslims used to vacate their homes to gather food.

According to hadith and the sunnah of the Prophet (ﷺ) there are a number of duas one can recite for safar / travelling / going on a journey and we will cover them all in this one article.  Theses can be used for any method of transport whether by airplane, car, or boat.

Supplication For Travelling

Safar ki dua

In short, this hadith teaches to say the following:

  • (Bismillah) [three times]
  • Alhamdulillah
  • Subhan Alladhi Sakh-khara Lana Hadha Wa Ma Kunna Lahu Muqrinin. Wa Inna Ila Rabbina Lamunqalibun (Also referenced in  Surah Zukhruf ayat 13-14)
  • Alhamdulillah and Allahuakbar [three times]
  • Subhanaka Inni Qad Zalamtu Nafsi Faghfirli Fa-Innahu La Yaghfirudh-Dhunuba Illa Ant

The Full hadith is given below from Jami At-Tirmidhi, Vol. 6, Book of Supplications, Hadith 3446 Ali bin Rabi’ah said:

“I witnessed Ali having an animal brought to him to ride. When he placed his foot in the stirrup he said: ‘In the Name of Allah,’ (Bismillah) [three times]. So then, once he had ascended upon its back, he said: ‘All praise is due to Allah.’ (Al-Hamdulillah) then he said: Glory is to Him Who has subjected this to us, and we were not able to do it. And, surely, to our Lord are we returning (Subhan Alladhi Sakh-khara Lana Hadha Wa Ma Kunna Lahu Muqrinin. Wa Inna Ila Rabbina Lamunqalibun). Then he said: ‘All praise is due to Allah (Al-Hamdulillah)’ – three times – and ‘Allah is the Greatest (Allahu Akbar)’ – three times – ‘Glory is to You, indeed I have wronged myself, so forgive me, for indeed none forgives sins except You (Subhanaka Inni Qad Zalamtu Nafsi Faghfirli Fa-Innahu La Yaghfirudh-Dhunuba Illa Ant).’ Then he laughed. So I said: ‘O Commander of the Believer! What caused you to laugh?’ He said: ‘I saw the Messenger of Allah do as I did, then he ﷺ laughed, so I said, ‘What cause you to laugh?’ He said: ‘Indeed, your Lord if very pleased with His worshipper when he says: “O my Lord, forgive me my sins, indeed, no one other than You forgives sins.”

Invocation For Traveler

Transliteration: Bismiallahi wa alhamdu liallahi. Subhanaalladhi sakh-khara lana hadha wa ma kunna lahu muqrinin. Wa inna ila Rabbi-na la munqalibun.

Translation: In the name of Allah, and Praise be to Allah. Glory be to the one who has placed this (transport) at our service and we ourselves would not have been capable of that, and to our Lord we will surely return.  

Dua Upon Reaching Destination

Transliteration: Allhum rab alsamawat alsbʿ wama aẓlun wa-rab alarḍyn alsbʿ wama aqlun warab alshayaṭyn wama aḍlun warab alryaḥ wama duhryn finna nasalak khayr hudh alqarya wkhyr ahlha wanʿwdh baka mn shrha washr ahlha washr ma fyha.

Translation: “O Allah, You are the Lord of the seven skies and all the things that are under these skies and the seven planets and whatever is over these and of Satan who misled and all those misled by him and for the wind and all that it blows. Thus we seek the good of this town and the good of its members (people) and seek refuge from its evil and the evil of its members and from the evils of whatever is in it”. (Hisnul Hasin from Ibn Habban)  

Another Dua:

أعوذ بكلمات الله التامات من شر ما خلق

A’udhu bikalimat-illahit-tammati min sharri ma khalaqa

Khaulah bint Hakim (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) saying, “Whosoever alights somewhere and says: ‘A’udhu bikalimat-illahit-tammati min sharri ma khalaqa (I seek refuge with the Perfect Words of Allah from the evil of what He has created),’ nothing will harm him until he leaves that place.” [Muslim] Riyad As Salihin. Arabic/English book reference : Book 8, Hadith 982

Other Hadiths About Safar and Safe Journey

The duas for safar covered this far are the most well known or common duas for journey. The rest of the article will focus on advice from Prophet Muhammad ( ﷺ ) regarding a safe travel and other Islamic traditions.

It’s Better To Travel With Others:

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Were people to know of what I know about the dangers of travelling alone, no rider would travel alone at night.”. In another narration, The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “A single rider is (accompanied with) Satan and two riders are (accompanied with) two Satans. Three riders form a group.” 1

This was more applicable and good advice back during the Prophet’s time as travelling was far more treacherous at night especially if going alone. Today travelling at night is safer but you will not be as alert as you would when you first wake. Going on safar with group you’ll be less likely to make mistakes or be taken advantage of. 

When Ascending To Heights (Going on Plane)

Ibn ‘Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: Whenever the Prophet (ﷺ) and his army ascended a height, they would proclaim: “Allahu Akbar (Allah is Greatest),” and when they climbed down, they would proclaim: “Subhan Allah (Allah is free from imperfection).” 2

Shortened Prayer While Vacationing:

Narrated Ibn `Abbas: The Prophet (ﷺ) once stayed for nineteen days and prayed shortened prayers. So when we travel led (and stayed) for nineteen days, we used to shorten the prayer but if we traveled (and stayed) for a longer period we used to offer the full prayer. 3

How to Recite Traveling Dua?

Performing a Dua, or prayer, in Islam doesn’t need any special preparations like wudu (ablution), usually done before prayers. However, as a Muslim, it is better to always remain neat and clean, including when you’re travelling.

Starting your journey? It’s an ideal time to offer your Dua for travelling .  There is a set pattern for offering a Dua in Islam. It includes:

  • Start with the name of Allah (S.W.T.)
  • Recite the specific dua for that particular need
  • End with durud (sending peace and blessings upon Prophet Muhammad  ﷺ)

Remember, you can always recite the travelling dua straightaway if you prefer. This isn’t a strict rule, just a way to make your journey more blessed.

Dua For Travelling

Table of Contents

In Islam, the instructions for making a dua for travelling and offering Sunnah travel supplications are apparent, as they  protect you and help you build a strong connection with Allah SWT .

What the Quran Says About Travelling

When you embark on your travels , always start by making all the relevant duas for travelling and following the guidelines of Prop het Muhammad PBUH for safe travels .

We will discuss all the necessary measures to make for travelling and learn their origin and significance.

Let’s dive into the correct way to make dua for travelling and understand its importance for Muslims travelling .

Why Is Dua Important When Travelling?

The Prophet Muhammad PBUH spoke about offering duas and travelling supplication multiple times.

Hadith in al-Bayhaqi, at–Trimidhi–Sahih 1905 narrates,

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ثَلَاثُ دَعَوَاتٍ مُسْتَجَابَاتٌ لَا شَكَّ فِيهِنَّ دَعْوَةُ الْمَظْلُومِ وَدَعْوَةُ الْمُسَافِرِ وَدَعْوَةُ الْوَالِدِ عَلَى وَلَدِ

The translation is as follows;

“Allah SWT will not reject three prayers/supplication, the supplication for parents for his child, the supplication of the one who is fasting, and the supplication of the traveller.” 

What Is the Dua of a Traveller?

According to the Sunnah of the Muhammad PBUH, offering a dua for travelling is a way to build a strong connection with Allah SWT and offers you protection , such that your travelling journey is fully protected by the Allah (SWT) and by performing continuous Azkaar (remembrance) and making dua for a safe journey , protects you from Evil.  

Is a Traveller’s Dua Accepted?

In another instance, the Prophet Muhammad SAW says three dua for travelling ;

A reference from Sunan Al-Tirmizi Book 7 Hadith 5 narrates,

Arabic: أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال‏:‏ قال ‏:‏ رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏:‏ ‏ “‏ ثلاث دعوات مستجابات لا شك فيهن‏:‏ دعوة المظلوم، ودعوة المسافر، ودعوة الوالد على ولده‏

The translations of which is:

“ These supplications are answered without a doubt: the duas of the oppressed, the traveller, and the parents of their child/children.”

11 Duas for Travelling For a Safe Journey

There are many Sunnah duas , supplications, raka , and dua for safe journey , regardless of the time and distance required for their completion.

Sunnah Before Traveling

It is the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH that you leave your home after offering two raka Sunnah prayers.

An explanation of one of his hadiths reported that before leaving your house, safeguard yourself against evil by performing two raka Sunnah, and when you return to your home, ensure that you perform two more Sunnah raka . 

A Hadith in Musnad Al-Bazzar 380 narrates,

“When you leave your house, perform two raka’h and this will safeguard you against evil. When you enter your home, perform another two raka’h, and this will safeguard you against evil.”

In this prayer, you can continue with any surah following Surah Fatiha; however, Surah Al-Kafiroon and Al-Ikhlas hold significance.

Dua After You Leave the House

When you leave your house, many things cross your mind: 

  • Will my belongings be safe till I return? 
  • Will I safely reach my destination and perform my goal? 
  • Will I encounter any hurdles in my way? 
  • Will everything be safe like it was before? 

Allah SWT has blessed the Muslims with one answer to all their worries: making dua for a safe journey with the zeal of faith and depth of their hearts. 

While leaving your home, the most beautiful and significant dua for a safe trip is below;

A Hadith in Sunan Abi-Daud 5095 narrates;

Arabic: بِسمِ اللَّهِ، توَكَّلتُ على اللَّهِ، لا حَولَ ولا قوَّةَ إلَّا باللَّهِ، يقالُ لَهُ: كُفيتَ، ووُقيتَ، وتنحَّى عنهُ الشَّيطانُ

Transliteration: Bismillah, tawakkaltu ‘alAllah, wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billah

“In the name of Allah , I place my trust, and there is no might or power except by Allah.”

In multiple instances, people directly linked with the Prophet PBUH have confirmed that He (SAW) quotes that the person who recites these travelling duas with complete belief rested upon Allah will be protected and served with the protection of Allah SWT and the Evil will stay far off from him/her while travelling away from home.

Dua For Travelling by Plane and Car

  • While Travelling On a Height

Ascending or descending from a considerable height, such as when travelling in an escalator, a lift, a bridge, or on a flight on a plane or helicopter, Muslims are encouraged to recite specific dua’s or supplications to ask for protection and dua for someone travelling on a plane or during the flight is highly significant;  While ascending, recite thrice;

‘ Allahu Akbar,’ which means that Allah is the greatest

And while descending, recite

Arabic: ٱللَّٰهِ سُبْحَانَ

‘ Subhan Allah,’ which translates to Allah is perfect.

These two supplications have been approved by the closest to the Prophet as His (PBUH) Sunnah. Making dua for someone travelling on the plane during the flight creates a deep connection with Allah SWT, and He blesses you and that person.

  • When Boarding On An Animal or Ship

According to the Holy Quran, in the verse Surah-Hud 11/41 , Allah SWT commands, 

Transliteration: Wa qaalar kaboo feehaa bismil laahi majraihaa wa mursaahaa; inna Rabbee la Ghafoorur Raheem.

Dua When Your Animal Stumbles While on Journey

If your animal, which is the medium of transport for either you or the luggage, stumbles and falls, recite the following Dua for travel upon loading on it for Allah SWT’s aid,

Dua For Safe Travel For a Loved One

During your expeditions, you might face some hurdles. Certain situations are in our control, but some of them are unavoidable.

The easiest way to escape these difficulties is to increase zikr and repeatedly recite Istighfar , which means seeking Allah ‘s refuge and mercy. 

ٱسْتِغْفَار

The Prophet Muhammad PBUH repeatedly focused on increasing the amount of Istighfar throughout your expedition, freeing you from worries and hardships.

Dua on Returning Home

dua for returning home

1. Supplication When You Return Home

As the Sunnah, we must offer two Sunnah- raka upon returning to our residence.

This supplication is done to thank Allah SWT for His protection and mercy against evil and wrong-doers.

2. Dua When Approaching Your Residence

When you have completed your expedition, recite the following dua when entering your residence.

Importance of Making Dua While Travelling;

  • As much as praying five times a day holds significance, travelling dua’s and supplications hold equal importance.
  • Allah will answer your travel prayers if they are in your favour.
  • Prayers for a good and pious husband or wife are granted if the person praying is unmarried. Prayers for the husband or wife to stay on the right path are all granted if married.
  • Making dua while entering your vehicle and starting your long journey keeps you safe from accidents.
  • If you are in any distress or hardship regarding health, children, faith, relationships, or finances, Allah SWT will answer your prayers as He is the closest to the travellers.
  • Maintains a strong connection with Allah and gives you a sense of satisfaction.
  • Increases your faith and protects you from the wrong while travelling .
  • Allah SWT always awards the duas while performing Umrah. The duas you can make while fulfilling the obligations of Umrah are for parents, children, siblings, friends, faith, finance, life, and health.
  • While travelling in remote areas or at night, travel dua safeguards you from accidents, environmental hazards, and dangerous creatures.

Prayers, supplications, and travelling duas are essential aspects of a Muslim’s life, specifically while travelling.

Following the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet Muhammad PBUH, during travelling , we convert the journey into a prayer, which guides us to the correct paths and protects us from all kinds of evil.

Recitations from the Holy Quran, Islamic dua for travelling, as the Prophet Muhammad SAW mentioned, and Sunnah prayers will help you through the hurdles during the travel journey.

Travel Duas - 6 Islamic Duas To Recite When Traveling

Translation :

Glory be to the One Who has placed this (transport) at our service and we ourselves would not have been capable of that, and to our, Lord is our final destiny. O Allah, we ask You for righteousness and piety in this journey of ours, and we ask You for deeds which please You. O Allah, facilitate our journey and let us cover its distance quickly. O Allah, You are the Companion on the journey and the Successor (the One Who guards them in a person’s absence) over the family. O Allah, I seek refuge with You from the difficulties of travel, from having a change of heart and from being in a bad predicament, and I seek refuge with You from an ill-fated outcome with regard to wealth and family. – (Narrated by Muslim, 1342)

Can you see, how beautifully Allah has guided His men in every aspect of life? Can you see why Islam is seen as a code of life? It is because of these minute precisions Allah has given to us! The one who has created us has formulated basic codes so that we are not left alone anywhere, and we remind ourselves that Allah is present nearest to us and takes care of our journey. We just need to work on the ethics of travel. We need to recite the days telling Allah that we only put our trust in Him.

Q. Should You Pray Before Traveling?

A. Yes, it is highly recommended to say 2 raka’at nafal prayers before you start your journey. As the Prophet PBUH said:

“When you leave your house, perform two raka’at and this will safeguard you against evils. When you return home, perform another two raka’at and this will safeguard you against evils.”

Similarly, when you come back home after the journey, you should again say 2 raka’at prayer to thank Allah.

Q. Are Duas Accepted When Traveling?

A. The Prophet PBUH has told us about certain times of the day or certain instances in life when the chances of acceptance of prayer are very high. One of these times is when a Muslim is traveling. So if your trip and your dua are both for a good reason, remember Allah during the journey and He will surely remember you.

As the Prophet PBUH said:

Three supplications will not be rejected (by Allah (SWT)), the supplication of the parent for his child, the supplication of the one who is fasting, and the supplication of the traveler. [al-Bayhaqi, at-Tirmidhi – Sahih]

11 Super Duas To Recite When Travelling

Going on holiday? Here are 11 duas that will protect you throughout your travels

travel dua hadith

Advertise on TMV

Regular travel is highly encouraged in Islam. The Qur’an states:

It is He who has made the earth manageable for you––travel its regions; eat His provision- and to Him you will be resurrected.” Advertise on TMV [67:15]

Islam doesn’t encourage a sedentary lifestyle. Travelling is a way for us to appreciate God’s earth. Some regions are hot, others cold. Some places are mountainous, whilst others are by the sea. The earth has a lot to offer. Travelling – from planning, travelling itself and adjusting to new surroundings is good for personal development and affords time away from our routine to reflect on creation and unwind.

The majority of verses in the Holy Quran concerning travelling mention travelling to see how previous disbelieving nations and communities:

Say, ‘Travel throughout the earth and see what fate befell those who rejected the truth.’” [6:11]

Even today, we can visit areas of the earth and see the remaining ruins of past generations.

Whatever your reason for travelling, it’s important to be safe. And that’s where Islam has plentiful duas to recite for travelling. We have duas for different scenarios and stages of travelling. Here are 11.

Duas Before Starting the Journey

When we plan to travel, we want the entire experience to be as pleasant as possible. Before we leave our place of residence to travel, there are two duas we can recite, seeking Allah’s blessings for the journey.

Allahumma inna nas-aluka fi safarina haza-l-birra wat-taqwa, wa minal-‘amali ma tardho. Allahumma hawwin ‘alaina safarana haza, watwi ‘anna bu’dahu, Allahumma antas-sohibu fis-safar wal-khalifatu fil-ahli. Allahumma inni a-‘uzu bika min wa’atha-is-safar, wa kabbati-manzar, wa su-i-lmunqalabi fil-mal wal-ahli.

O Allah, we ask You in our travel for righteousness, taqwa, and good deeds that You are pleased with. O Allah make our travel an ease, and shorten the distance for us. O Allah, You are our Companion in travel and the guardian of our family (in our absence). O Allah I seek refuge in You from the hardships of travel, a sight of grief, and from an unfortunate occurance in wealth and family.”

Bismillahi,aamantu billahi, wa tawakkaltu allallahi, ma-sha-allah, la haula wala quawwata illa billah. Allahumma ahadhni wahfadh ma ma`ee wa ballighnee wa balligh ma ma ma`ee bi blalaghikalhusn, billahi astaftihu wa billahi astanjihu wa bi muhammadin sallallahu alaiyhi wa aalihi atawajjahu. Allahukka sahhil lee kulla huzoonatin wa dhallil lee kulla huzoonatin wa dhallil lee kulla su`oobatin wa a`tinee mina khairi kullih akhtar mimma arju wasirf annee minash-sharri mimma uhad-diru fee aafi;yatin, ya arhamarrahimeen.

In the name of Allah! I have placed faith in Allah and I have put full trust in Allah. (It is) as Allah wills! There is no strength and no power save with Allah. O Allah! Protect me and protect what is with me (my possessions), and deliver me (to my destination and delivery what is with me the best of your delivery. By Allah I commence (my journey) and by Allah I seek to accomplish (the purpose of my journey) and by Muhammad (s.a.w.) I have set out (towards my destination). Oh Allah make me overcome all (my grief); and make easy for me all difficulties; and give me more of goodness than I hope for; and keep away all evil of which I am apprehensive for my health. O the most Merciful.”

Duas When Boarding A Vehicle

When boarding your vehicle for travel – be it a car, plane or ship – it’s important to thank Allah (SWT) for giving us the means to travel and confessing our total reliance on Him in completing the journey safely. The following three duas reflect these sentiments.

Subhanal-ladzi sakh-khara lana hadza wa ma kunna lahu muqrinin. Wa inna ila Rabbina lamun-qalibun.

In the name of Allah and all praise is for Allah. How perfect He is, the One Who has placed this (transport) at our service and we ourselves would not have been capable of that, and to our Lord is our final destiny.”

Bismillahi walaa quwwata illa billahi. Alhamdu lillahil-ladhee sakh-khara lana haadha wama kaunna lahu muqrineen.

In the name of Allah, and there is no power save with Allah. Praise be to Allah who made this (the means of transport) subservient to us, and we (by ourselves) could never have accomplished it.”

Alhamdu lillahil-ladhee hadaana lil-islam wa allamanal quran wa manna alayna bi muhammadin sallallhu alayhi wa aalihi. Subhanal-ladhee sakh-khara lana haadha wama kunna lahu muqrineen, wa inna illa rabbina lamuqaliboon. Walhamdu lillahi rabbil aalameen. Allahumma antal haamilu aladhdhahr walmusta`anu alal-amr. Wa antas-sahibu fis-sfar wal khaleefatu fil-ahli wal-maali wal-walad. Allahumma anta adhdee wa naasiree.

All praise is for Allah Who guided us in Islam and taught us the Quran and graced us with Muhammad (s.a.w.). Glory be to Allah Who made this (the means of transport) subservient to us, and we (by ourselves) could never have accomplished it. And surely to our Lord we shall return. All praise is for Allah, the Lord of the worlds. `O` Allah! You are the Facilitator of the journey and the helper in the affair and you are the Companion in the journey, and the Successor (incharge of my) family, property and son. `O` Allah! You are my supporter and my Helper to Victory.” Advertise on TMV

Duas For When We Reach our Destination

The following can be recited as we enter the borders of a new country, town or city:

Allahumma innee as-aluka khairaha wa a`oodhu bika min sharriha. Allahumma habbibna ilaa ahliha wa habbib saalihi ahliha ilayna.

Oh, Allah! I beseech from you its (town, city or village) goodness and seek refuge in you from its wickedness. Oh Allah! let its inhabitants love us, and let us love its virtuous inhabitants.”

And here is another:

Allahumma rabbas samawatis sab’i wa ma azlalna, wa rabbal ardinas sab’i wa ma aqlalna, wa rabbash-shayatini wa ma adlalna, wa rabbar riyahi wa ma zaraina, as’aluka khaira hadzihil qaryah wa khaira ahliha, wa khaira ma fiha, wa a’udzubika min sharriha wa sharri ahliha, wa sharri ma fiha.

O Allah, Lord of the seven heavens and all that they envelope, Lord of the seven earths and all that they carry, Lord of the devils and all whom they misguide, Lord of the winds and all whom they whisk away. I ask You for the goodness of this village, the goodness of its inhabitants and for all the goodness found within it and I take refuge with You from the evil of this village, the evil of its inhabitants and from all the evil found within it.”

When we actually get to our hotel or place of residence and leave our car or when we disembark the ship or plane, we can say the following:

Rabbee anzilnee manzilan mubarakan wa anta khairul-munzileen.

O, My Lord! Cause me to disembark a blessed alighting, and you are the Best of all who cause to alight.”

Another dua to recite specifically for when we enter our place of residence:

A’uzu bikalimatillahit-tammati min syarri ma khalaq.

I seek refuge in the Perfect Words of Allah from the evil of what is created.”

Dua for Travelling by Ship

If you’re going on a cruise holiday or a ferry, there’s a specific dua you can recite for it:

Bismillahil malikil haq. Wama qadarullahahaqqa qadarihi wal ardhu jamee`an qabdhatuhu yaumall qiyamati was-sawamatu matwiyyatun biyameenihi subhaanahu wata`ala amma yshrikoon. Bismillahi majraha wa mursaha inna rabbee laghafoorun raheemen.

In the name of Allah! The Master! The Truth! They esteemed not Allah with an esteem due to Him. The whole earth is under His hold on the day of resurrection and the heavens folded at His command. Glory be to him and the High above! He is beyond the attribution of any partner. In the name of Allah be its course (sailing) and its arrival (anchorage). Verily my Lord is All Forgiving, All Merciful.”

Duas for Returning Home

When we are returning home, we can recite the same duas mentioned above. For example, you can recite the same dua when entering your car to go to the airport or as you leave your hotel. In addition, you can recite the following, which is specifically for returning home.

Aa-iboona taa-iboona insha allah aabi doona raki`oona saajidoona lirabbina haamidoon. Allahumma lakal hamdu ala hifdhika iyyaya fee safaree wa hadharee. Allahummaj`al aubatee haadhihi mubarakatan maimoonatan maqroonatan be taubatin nasoohin toojablee bihas-sa`adah ya arhamar-rahimeen.

If Allah wills, we repent and seek pardon from Him; we worship Him and Him we bow and prostrate. Our Lord we praise. O Allah! Make this return (journey) of mine a blessed one, a fruitful one, associated with a sincere repentance; one that will make prosperity incumbent for me. Oh Most Merciful.”

Hadith on travel as well as the etiquettes and manners of travelling in Islam

Know the important Hadith on travel as well as the etiquettes and manners of travelling in Islam. Find out the Intentions for travellers and Istikhara dua in English and Arabic with translation.

Performing Istikharah before travel - Dua in Arabic and English

By mufti shafique a jakhura.

Before embarking upon a journey it is preferable to do Istikharah (which literally means to seek goodness). Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) has mentioned with regards to Istikharah, “The person who does Istikharah will never suffer loss”

The method of Istikharah, is that if it is not a time of the day when Salaah is prohibited or disliked, one should perform two Rakaats of Nafl Salaah and thereafter seek guidance and goodness from Allah (Subhanahu-Sa-Tha'ala) in the form of dua. The dua of Istikharah is in the Travel Dua section.

While reciting this Du'aa when one reaches HAADHAL AMR (THIS MATTER) at both places one should ponder over the matter that one requires guidance on.

It is not always that one will see a dream guiding him towards what he/she should or should not do. In many cases a person just feels inclined towards a certain decision. Whatever the case might be, after doing istikhara one should act upon what one is more inclined towards after the Istikhaarah and by doing so there will always be good in the decision that he/she makes Inshallah. If one is still uncertain, one should repeat the Istikhara and also consult the pious, Allah fearing person and seek their guidance as well.

However, if one does not have the opportunity to do Istikhara in the above mentioned manner, or one requires to make a quick decision regarding a certain matter, then one should recite the following dua in abundance,  اللهم خر لي واختر لي , (Allaahumma khir li wakh tar li), meaning, "O Allah, Choose the correct thing for me and you make the decision for me."

It is permissible for one to ask someone else to do Istikhara for oneself. However, one should also do Istikhara oneself.

Any decision made after Istikhara will Inshallah be beneficial.

Making Intention (Niyyat) for Travel

The travels of this World are an example of one‘s travel towards the hereafter and are there to take lessons from. The objectives of these travels, amongst all other purposes, should always be to direct one‘s attention towards Allah (Subhanahu-Sa-Tha‘ala) and the hereafter. The best traveler is the one that takes lessons from the signs of Allah (Subhanahu-Wa-Tha‘ala) that he witnesses.

One should not pass by places without taking these important lessons from them. One should always be occupied in the preparation of the journey towards one‘s hereafter and hence, always strive to lead one‘s life in accordance with the Sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa Sallam). As such, whenever the occasion to travel may arise during one‘s life, one should endeavour to follow the practice and teachings of Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa Sallam). In this way, one would be able to derive the benefits of these actions in both this World and the Hereafter.

The Intentions of Journey

When undertaking a journey, many different intentions could be added to one‘s core purpose of the journey, thereby making a permissible journey an act of Ibaadat and worship and thus being rewarded abundantly even for journeys that may outwardly not even appear to be virtuous acts.

One should make as many intentions as possible. The more virtuous the intentions, the more the reward! Remember that the intention of a believer is greater than his/her action.

The following are some intentions that one could make for one‘s travels:

To meet friends and relatives, find out regarding their well-being, please them by visiting them and maintain family ties.

Travelling with the intention of earning a Halal livelihood and fulfilling one‘s obligations in this regard, e.g. that I will earn Halal wealth and thereafter discharge Zakaat, Sadqatul Fitr, Qurbaani, go for Haj and Umrah, provide for my family, the poor and destitute and in other meritorious avenues.

To acquire good health because the Hadith of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) states that "Travel and attain good health!"

To acquire the knowledge of Deen or to propagate whatever one knows of Deen to others if one gets the correct opportunity.

To help the community in any sphere of their lives if the opportunity arises.

To visit the sick, console the calamity stricken and those in difficulty.

To pay condolences to family of the deceased.

To move dangerous obstacles away from the road so that fellow road users are not inconvenienced.

To perform Haj or Umra. If one were travelling to a place other than the Haramain Sharifain, then too one could intend that one‘s travel is so that one becomes accustomed to travel to the Haramain Sharifain.

To visit the pious servants of Allah (Subhanahu-Sa-Tha‘ala) in the different parts of the World and learn from their advice.

To meet someone solely for the pleasure of Allah (Subhanahu-Sa-Tha‘ala) without there being any other objective.

To intend to make nafl I‘tikaaf in the different Masaajid that one will be visiting during one‘s journey and to intend to pray Salaah, make Zikr, engage in dua and to do good acts at the various places that are on one‘s route.

To learn about the conditions of the community and endeavour to assist in accordance with one‘s ability even if the most one is able to do is to make dua for them.

According to the Hadith, the dua of a traveler is accepted, hence, to travel with the intention of making dua.

To see the manifestations of the greatness of Allah (Subhanahu-Sa-Tha‘ala) by seeing different aspects of nature that have been created by Him in order to enhance His recognition.

In this manner there are many intentions that a person can make before embarking upon a journey. The more the intentions, the greater the reward.

Hadith - Travelling Alone

Translation of sahih bukhari, book 52.

Narrated Ibn 'Umar:The Prophet (SAW) said, "If the people knew what I know about traveling alone, then nobody would travel alone at night."

Hadith - Advice on travel

Translation of malik's muwatta, book 54.

Malik related to me from Abu Ubayd, the mawla of Sulayman ibn Abd al-Malik from Khalid ibn Madan who attributed it to the Prophet (SAW) "Allah, the Blessed and Exalted is kind and loves kindness. He is pleased with it and helps you with it as long as it is not misplaced. When you ride dumb beasts, stop them in their stopping places, and quicken their pace when the land is barren. Travel by night, because the land is travelled faster at night than it is during the day. Beware of pitching tents on the road, for it is the path of animals and the abode of snakes.

Hadith - Hasten the return to his family

Translation of sahih muslim, book 20.

On the authority of Abu Huraira that the Prophet (SAW) said: Travelling is a tortuous experience. It deprives a person of his sleep, his food and drink. When one of you has accomplished his purpose, he should hasten his return to his family.

Hadith - Coming back to family in the morning or in the evening

It has been narrated on the authority of Anas b. Malik that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) would not come (back) to his family by night. He would come to them in the morning or in the evening. Another version of the tradition narrated on some authority is worded differently. It says: (He) would not enter (upon his household at night).

Hadith - Travelling for Knowledge

Translation of sunan abu-dawud, book 25.

Kathir ibn Qays said: I was sitting with AbudDarda' in the mosque of Damascus.

A man came to him and said: AbudDarda, I have come to you from the town of the Apostle of Allah (SAW) for a tradition that I have heard you relate from the Apostle of Allah (SAW). I have come for no other purpose.

He said: I heard the Apostle of Allah (SAW) say: If anyone travels on a road in search of knowledge, Allah will cause him to travel on one of the roads of Paradise. The angels will lower their wings in their great pleasure with one who seeks knowledge, the inhabitants of the heavens and the Earth and the fish in the deep waters will ask forgiveness for the learned man. The superiority of the learned man over the devout is like that of the moon, on the night when it is full, over the rest of the stars. The learned are the heirs of the Prophets, and the Prophets leave neither dinar nor dirham, leaving only knowledge, and he who takes it takes an abundant portion.

Dua For Travelling in English | Best Duas Before & After Travelling

Are you all set for your traveling be sure to recite these duas for traveling which are collected from the books of hadith..

by Mohammed Saadullah Khan

Allah SWT is the creator and sustainer of the entire universe. Every person living on this earth works day and night to fulfill his household needs and earns a living to feed himself and his family with great effort. If he does all these things under the commandments of God and the Sunnah of the Prophet (PBUH), then they all become acts of worship.

But if he does not follow the Islamic rules in these matters and breaks those by adopting illegal methods or starts killing the rights of others in the name of economic struggle, then this effort can become a source of disgrace for him in the hereafter. Islam has guided us in every matter and even Prophet (peace be upon Him) taught us the dua and manners for travelling also.

Why Do We Need to Read Dua for Travelling?

When we travel, we are surrounded by countless dangers. To be safe from these dangers, we can remove the possible dangers by following the commands of the Prophet (peace be upon Him) and the rulings stated by them. It is clear that by doing prayers, giving charity, and many other such things, and by following the rules and precautions, we can keep ourselves safe from every kind of danger. We should not forget to read dua for travelling before leaving our home and after coming back home.

Best Dua for Travelling in English

سُبْحَـٰنَ ٱلَّذِى سَخَّرَ لَنَا هَـٰذَا وَمَا كُنَّا لَهُۥ مُقْرِنِينَ وَإِنَّآ إِلَىٰ رَبِّنَا لَمُنقَلِبُون

English transliteration : Subhan Alladhi Sakh-Khara Lana Hadha Wa Ma Kunna Lahu Muqrinin. Wa Inna Ila Rabbina Lamunqalibun

” title="Advertise and Market to Muslims" target="_blank">Ads by Muslim Ad Network

“So, that you may sit firmly on their backs, and remember your Lord’s blessings once you are settled on them, saying, “Glory be to the One who has subjected these for us, for we could have never done so ˹on our own. And surely to our Lord, we will all return.”

– [ Surah Zukhruf ayat 13-14 ]  

That is, among all the creatures of the earth, only man has been given the authority by Allah SWT to use boats and ships and animals as rides. Should he never wonder who it is that made it possible for him to navigate the great seas and who created some of the innumerable animals that became his slaves? Taking advantage of these blessings and forgetting the benefactor is a sign of a dead heart and a numb conscience.

Because when a person with a lively heart and a sensitive conscience sits on these paths, he will be filled with a sense of blessings and a spirit of gratitude and will cry: ‘Blessed is He who subjugated these things to me. He is purer than that another partakes of His being, attributes, and powers. He is pure and free from the weakness of being helpless to perform his divine functions by himself and dependent on other co-gods. He is pure that I should share these blessings with someone else.

Dua’s for Travelling From Hadith:

1. It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) that when the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) mounted his camel to set out on a journey, he would say takbeer three times, then he would say:

Subhanaalladhi sakh-khara lana hadha wa ma kunna lahu muqrineen wa inna ila rabbina la munqaliboon

English Translation : Glory be to the One Who has placed this (transport) at our service and we ourselves would not have been capable of that, and to our Lord is our final destiny.

– [ Sahih Muslim 1342 ]

Dua For Traveling in English

2. There’s a popular Dua for travelling from [ Sunan Abi Dawud 5095 ] (graded as Sahih by Al-Albani) which we must read after leaving the house. I personally recite this Dua every single time before I start my journey.

English transliteration :

Bismillahi tawakkaltu ‘alallah la hawla wala quwwata illa billah

English translation : In the name of Allah, I trust in Allah; there is no might and no power but in Allah.

Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: When a man goes out of his house and says: “In the name of Allah, I trust in Allah; there is no might and no power but in Allah,” the following will be said to him at that time: “You are guided, defended and protected.” The devils will go far from him and another devil will say: How can you deal with a man who has been guided, defended and protected?

You can also check the meaning of this Dua here .

Remembering Allah SWT at all times brings a person even closer to Him. Moreover, it only takes only a few seconds to recite this beautiful Dua that our Prophet (SAWS) taught us to read for traveling. When you recite the Dua, be sure to put all your trust in Him.

How to Start And End Your Travel With Dua?

Narrated Ali ibn Abu Talib: Ali ibn Rabiah said: I was present with Ali while a beast was brought to him to ride. When he put his foot in the stirrup, he said: “In the name of Allah”. Then when he sat on its back, he said: “Praise be to Allah”. He then said: “Glory be to Him Who has made this subservient to us, for we had not the strength, and to our Lord do we return”. He then said: “Praise be to Allah (thrice); Allah is Most Great (thrice): glory be to Thee, I have wronged myself, so forgive me, for only Thou forgivest sins.” He then laughed. He was asked: At what did you laugh? He replied: I saw the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) do as I have done, and laugh after that. I asked: Messenger of Allah, at what are you laughing? He replied: Your Lord, Most High, is pleased with His servant when he says: “Forgive me my sins.” He knows that no one forgives sins except Him.

– [ Abu Dawood:2602 , Grade: Sahih (Al-Albani)]

Allahumma antas Sahibu fis safar, wal Khalifatu fil ahl. Allahumma inni a’uzu bika min wa’th-is safar, wa ka-abatil manzar, wa su-il munqalabi fil ahli wal mal

Translation: Ibn Umar (Allah be pleased with them) reported that whenever Allah’s Messenger ( ‌صلی ‌اللہ ‌علیہ ‌وسلم ‌ ) mounted his camel while setting out on a journey, he glorified Allah (uttered Allah-o-Akbar) thrice, and then said: Hallowed is He Who subdued for us this (ride) and we were not ourselves powerful enough to use It as a ride, and we are going to return to our Lord. O Allah, we seek virtue and piety from Thee in this journey of ours and the act which pleaseth Thee. O Allah lightens this journey of ours and makes its distance easy for us. O Allah, Thou art (our) companion during the journey, and guardian of (our) family. O Allah, I seek refuge with Thee from hardships of the journey, the gloominess of the sights, and finding of evil changes in property and family on return. And he (the Holy Prophet) uttered (these words), and made this addition to them: We are returning, repentant, worshipping our Lord and praising Him.

Translation : Khaula bint Hakim Sulamiyya reported: I heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: When anyone lands at a place and then says:” I seek refuge in the Perfect Word of Allah from the evil of what He has created,” nothing would harm him until he marches from that stopping place.

– [ Sahih Muslim 2708a ]

Dua of Protection

We may not know who has stayed before or what events have occurred in our staying place before that may affect our stay. To read the above supplication is actually useful to protect ourselves from any harm. Likewise, this dua after reaching the destination is the protection from all evil and bad things.

Traveling gives an excitement to the soul of man and gives joy to his heart. And in the Holy Qur’an, God Almighty has called consideration of the living conditions of the past people as an example and a reason to learn a good lesson from them. The prophet (peace be upon him) has given great consideration to this important movement of human life and has given special importance to traveling. It was the blessed habit of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) that he used to read dua for travelling when he starts his traveling and end his traveling with dua.

travel dua hadith

  • en العربية ar English en Español es हिन्दी hi

Is there a du`a which will protect the traveller until he returns to his family?

Publication : 11-04-2011

Views : 87671

What is the du`a that if a person says it when he is travelling, he will come back to his family safe and sound by virtue of this du`a?.

Praise be to Allah.

In the Sunnah there are several adhkar which it is mustahabb for the one who wants to travel to say. These include: 

It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allah ibn ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) that when the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) mounted his camel to set out on a journey, he would say takbeer three times, then he would say: “Subhaan allathi sakhkhara lana hadha wa ma kunna lahu muqrineen wa inna ila rabbina la munqaliboon. Allahumma inna nas’aluka fi safarina haadha al-birra wa’l-taqwa wa min al-‘aml ma tarda, Allahumma hawwin ‘alayna safarana haadha watwi ‘anna bu’dahu. Allahumma anta al-saahib fi’l-safar wa’l-khaleefah fi’l-ahl. Allahumma inni a’oodhu bika min wa’tha’ al-safar wa ka’aabat al-manzar wa su’ al-munqalib fi’l-maali wa’l-ahl (Glory be to the One Who has placed this (transport) at our service and we ourselves would not have been capable of that, and to our Lord is our final destiny. O Allah, we ask You for righteousness and piety in this journey of ours, and we ask You for deeds which please You. O Allah, facilitate our journey and let us cover its distance quickly. O Allah, You are the Companion on the journey and the Successor (the One Who guards them in a person’s absence) over the family. O Allah, I seek refuge with You from the difficulties of travel, from having a change of heart and from being in a bad predicament, and I seek refuge with You from an ill-fated outcome with regard to wealth and family).” And when he returned he would say the same words, with the following addition: “Aayiboona taa’iboona ‘aabidoona li rabbina haamidoon (Returning, repenting, worshipping and praising our Lord).” 

Narrated by Muslim (1342). 

The phrase “wa ma kunna lahu muqrineen (and we ourselves would not have been capable of that)” means: we would not have been able to subdue it and make use of it, had not Allah placed it at our service.    

“The difficulties of travel” mean hardships; “from having a change of heart” means changes caused by grief and the like: “ill-fated outcome” means, upon one’s return. See Sharh al-Nawawi ‘ala Muslim (9/111). 

We do not know whether there is any specific du`a in the Sunnah for protecting a traveller until he returns to his family safe and sound but if the traveller regularly recites the adhkar for morning and evening, and asks Allah to keep him safe and sound, and says the du`a for travelling that is quoted above, then we hope that Allah will answer his prayer and protect him and bring him back safely to his family, unless Allah wills in His wisdom to test His slave, in which case nothing can put back the decree of Allah. 

What he should remember, when he wants to go out of his house – in order to travel or for any other purpose – and he hopes that Allah will protect him, is the report narrated from Anas ibn Maalik (may Allah be pleased with him), according to which the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:  

“Whoever says – i.e., when he leaves his house - Bismillaah, tawakkaltu ‘ala Allah, wa laa hawla wa laa quwwata illa Billaah (In the name of Allah, I put my trust in Allah and there is no power and no strength except with Allah)” , it will be said to him: You are taken care of and you are protected and guided, and the devils will move away from him, and one devil says: What can you do with a man who has been guided, taken care of and protected? 

Narrated by Abu Dawood (5095) and al-Tirmidhi (3462); classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood. 

It says in ‘Awn al-Ma’bood (13/297): 

“Then it is said” means, an angel called out to him: O slave of Allah. “You have been guided” i.e., to the path of truth , “you have been taken care of” means your worries are taken care of.

Dua While Travelling

travel dua hadith

The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said; Three supplications will not be rejected (by Allah (SWT)), the supplication of the parent for his child, the supplication of the one who is fasting, and the supplication of the traveler. [al-Bayhaqi, at-Tirmidhi – Sahih] During travel supplication is heard by Allah (SWT) if the trip is for a good reason, but if the trip is for a bad intention or to perform illegal things (making sins) this will not apply to it.

In another hadith; The Prophet (SAW) declared: ‘ Three du’as are surely answered: The du’a of the oppressed, the du’a of the traveler, and the du’a of the father/mother (upon their child) ‘. The One who is suffering injustice is heard by Allah (SWT) when he invokes Allah (SWT) to retain his rights from the unjust one or oppressor. Allah (SWT) has sworn to help the one who is suffering from injustice sooner or later as the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said.
