What are the best Dua for traveling?
before we do anything, we ask Allah for his blessing and guidance, an example of this is the dua for traveling, we ask Allah to keep us safe from any harm.
Traveling is an adventure that is full of surprises no matter how hard we plan for it, that is why as Muslims we say supplication to protect us during the journey.
We have Duas concerning all aspects of life like Dua Before Eating and Dua After Eating, dua for children’s success, and so on. And we should learn those supplications, but if you can’t memorize the dua then don’t worry you could easily download it or search for it on the internet.
So, in this article, we will learn how to protect ourselves while traveling by remembering Allah and reciting Dua.
Dua for traveling on plane
- When leaving your home anytime you should say the following Dua:
“Bismillah, tawakkaltu ‘alallah, wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billah”
“I begin with the Name of Allah; I trust in Allah; there is no altering of conditions but by the Power of Allah.”
As Anas bin Malik narrated that the prophet peace and blessing be upon him said: “Whoever says upon leaving his house (I begin with the Name of Allah; I trust in Allah; there is no altering of conditions but by the Power of Allah.) it will be said to him: ‘You are guided, defended and protected.’ The devil will go far away from him.”
- When traveling or on your way to leave the country, the prophet peace and blessing be upon him instructed us to recite the following to have a safe journey:
“Bismillah, Walhamdulillah. 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.” (Hadith reported by Abu Daud and At-Tirmidhi)
- Now when you arrive your destination our prophet peace and blessing be upon him instructed us to say the following supplication:
“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 envelop, 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.”
