Dua upon returning from Safar

Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) hadith on Travelling

Sakhr bin Wada’ah Al-Ghamidi (May Allah be pleased with him) conveyed that the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) supplicated, “O Allah, bestow Your blessings upon my people in the early part of the day.” Whenever the Prophet dispatched a detachment or an army unit, he would do so early in the day, shortly after dawn. Sakhr, who was a merchant, also followed this practice by sending off his merchandise at the beginning of the day. As a result, his trade prospered, and he attained a substantial fortune.

 Riyad as-Salihin 957

Ka’b bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) commenced the Tabuk expedition on a Thursday, displaying a preference for initiating journeys on that day.

What is the dua for safar English?

When embarking on a journey or Safar in Islam, it is recommended to recite a Dua for safar to seek safety and protection. The Dua for safar is:

“Bismillahi tawakkaltu ‘ala Allah, wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billah.”

This translates to: “In the name of Allah, I place my trust in Allah, and there is no power or strength except with Allah.”

You will come to realize, during your journey, the instances when the Almighty shielded you from potential harm. Allah may reveal to you the dangers He safeguarded you from, or He might manifest the tranquility of your journey, affirming that it was He who attentively listened to the dua for safar made before your departure.

It’s a way of seeking Allah’s blessing and safeguarding from potential evil or difficulties that may arise during the journey. By saying this duas sincerely and with tawakkul in Allah, you seek His mercy and grace to ensure a safe and secure travel experience.

Which Surah to recite before Travelling?

Before leaving on a journey in Islam, it is recommended to recite certain Surahs and Verses from the Quran for protection and blessings of the Almighty. Here are three Surahs that I recommend from my experience to recite before traveling:

SurahChapter NumberKey Benefit
Al-Fatihah1Seeking Allah’s guidance and overall protection.
Al-Baqarah2Seeking safety from harm and blessings in travel.
Al-Ikhlas112Affirming the oneness of Allah for divine protection.
Al-Mulk67Seeking protection from the trials and challenges of the journey.
Al-Kafirun109Seeking refuge from disbelief and seeking Allah’s protection.
An-Nas114Seeking refuge in Allah from the evil of any harm that may come one’s way.

How to recite dua in English?

To prepare for du’a, follow these simple and beautiful steps:

Perform Wudu (Ablution): While not obligatory, performing wudu purifies oneself and sets the right mindset for connecting with Allah. The Prophet (saw) would sometimes make du’a after performing wudu.

Face the Qiblah: Though not compulsory, facing the Qiblah during du’a is a practice observed by the Prophet (saw) on certain occasions, enhancing the spiritual connection.

Raise Your Hands: Raising hands during du’a is a Sunnah with a profound meaning. The Prophet (saw) stated that Allah, being Generous, is shy to turn away His servant’s raised hands empty.

Call Upon Allah in a Low Voice: When making private du’a, the Prophet (saw) advised a low voice, emphasizing that Allah, the All-Hearing, is always near. This is in line with the Quranic guidance to remember Allah with humility and fear.

How do you say someone has a safe journey in Islam?

In my family or in my relatives, when someone is about to start a journey, we do heartfelt customs to seek Allah’s protection and blessings. Like saying “Fi Amanillah” or “Fi Man Allah” to the traveler, meaning “In Allah’s Protection.”

Additionally, giving “Sadqa” (charitable donations) in the name of Ahlul-Bayt (prophet Muhammad’s household ) before a journey is seen as a virtuous act.

We believe this act of charity can bring blessings and protection. By contributing to the well-being of others through charitable deeds, Allah’s mercy and protection extend to both the giver and the traveler.

What is Qasr Salah in Islam?

Qasr Salah in Islam refers to the shortened or abbreviated form of the ritual prayer, or Salah, performed by us Muslims during our travels. When a person embarks on a journey, covering a certain distance as defined by Islamic jurisprudence, we are allowed to perform Qasr Salah, which is a concession from the regular, full-length prayers.

During travel, a Muslim is permitted to shorten the four-unit (Rak’ah) prayers—Dhuhr, Asr, and Isha—to two units. This means that instead of the usual four rakah, a traveler will perform only two rakah for these prayers. Fajr prayer, which consists of two rakah, remains unchanged during travel, and Maghrib, with its three rakah, is also performed in full.

The distance that qualifies for Qasr Salah is generally understood to be around 48 miles (77.25 kilometers) and in Shia Islam it is (45 kilometers) from one’s hometown or city. However, it’s important to note that opinions may vary among scholars on the specific distance.

Which dua is for safety?

In Islam, when seeking safety and protection, one powerful supplication (dua) is to recite Ayatul Kursi. Ayatul Kursi is a verse from Surah Al-Baqarah (2:255) in the Quran. It is a well-known and highly regarded verse for seeking Allah’s protection. Reciting this verse is believed to bring about divine safeguarding and ward off harm.

Ayatul Kursi is a potent supplication highly recommended in Islam. In my understanding and personal experience, it has proven effective in every situation. This verse is often turned to for its strength and protection, and many people, including myself, find comfort and positive outcomes through its recitation.

What Quran Says about travelling?

In the Quran, the holy book of Islam, there are verses that talk about traveling. The Quran recognizes traveling as a way to gain knowledge, discover the signs of God, and think about the variety of creation. Let’s take a look at a few of these

Permission to Travel:

“And when you travel throughout the land, there is no blame upon you for shortening the prayer, [especially] if you fear that those who disbelieve may disrupt [or attack] you. Indeed, the disbelievers are ever to you a clear enemy.”

Surah An-Nisa (101)

Trusting in Allah during Travel:

“Allah does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear. It will have [the consequence of] what [good] it has gained, and it will bear [the consequence of] what [evil] it has earned. Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we forget or make a mistake. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us, and have mercy upon us.”

Surah Al-Baqarah (286)

Reflecting on God’s Creation:

“Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day are signs for those of understanding. Who remember Allah while standing or sitting or [lying] on their sides and give thought to the creation of the heavens and the earth, [saying], ‘Our Lord, You did not create this aimlessly; exalted are You [above such a thing]; then protect us from the punishment of the Fire.'”

Surah Al-Imran (190-191)

Seeking Knowledge through Travel:

“O you who have believed, when it is said to you, ‘Make room [in assemblies], ‘ then make room; Allah will make space for you. And when it is said, ‘Arise, ‘ then arise; Allah will raise those who have believed among you and those who were given knowledge, by degrees. And Allah is Acquainted with what you do.”

Surah Al-Mujadila (11)


When leaving your home, even for a short period, remember to seek Allah’s protection from harm. Dear brothers and sisters, unforeseen challenges can impact us at any time.

My prayers extend to each one of you. May Allah grant you rewards in every aspect, including good health and wealth, both in this life and the hereafter, the Barzakh.
