Invocation for traveling

207:- Allah is the Most Great. Allah is the Most Great. Allah is the Most Great. Glory is to Him Who has provided this for us though we could never have had it by our efforts. Surely, unto our Lord we are returning. O Allah, we ask You on this our journey for goodness and piety, and for works that are pleasing to You . O Allah , lighten this journey for us and make its distance easy for us . O Allah, You are our Companion on the road and the One in Whose care we leave our family . O Allah , I seek refuge in You from this journey's hardships, and from the wicked sights in store and from finding our family and property in misfortune upon returning.

اللهُ أكبَر ، اللهُ أكبَر ، اللهُ أكبَر، (سُـبْحانَ الّذي سَخَّـرَ لَنا هذا وَما

كُنّا لَهُ مُقْـرِنين
۞ وَإِنّا إِلى رَبِّنا لَمُنـقَلِبون)، اللّهُـمَّ إِنّا نَسْـأَلُكَ

في سَفَـرِنا هذا البِـرَّ وَالتَّـقْوى، وَمِنَ الْعَمَـلِ ما تَـرْضى، اللّهُـمَّ

هَوِّنْ عَلَـينا سَفَرَنا هذا وَاطْوِ عَنّا بُعْـدَه، اللّهُـمَّ أَنْـتَ الصّـاحِبُ

في السَّـفَر، وَالْخَلـيفَةُ في الأهـلِ، اللّهُـمَّ  إِنّـي أَعـوذُبِكَ مِنْ

وَعْـثاءِ السَّـفَر، وَكَآبَةِ الْمَنْـظَر، وَسوءِ الْمُنْـقَلَبِ في المـالِ

وَالأَهْـل


207. Allaahu 'Akbar, Allaahu 'Akbar, Allaahu 'Akbar, Subhaanal-lathee sakhkhara lanaa haathaa wa maa kunnaa lahu muqrineen. Wa 'innaa 'ilaa Rabbinaa lamunqaliboon. Allaahumma 'innaa nas'aluka fee safarinaa haathal-birrawattaqwaa, waminal-'amalimaa tardhaa, Allaahumma hawwin 'alaynaa safaranaa haathaa watwi 'annaa bu'dahu, Allaahumma 'Antas-saahibu fis-safari, walkhaleefatu fil-'ahli, Allaahumma 'innee 'a'oothu bika min wa'thaa'is-safari, wa ka'aabanl-mandhari, wa soo'il-munqalabi fil-maaliwal'ahli.

Upon returning recite the same again adding:

We return repentant to our Lord, worshipping our Lord, and praising our Lord.

آيِبُـونَ، تائِبُـونَ، عابِـُدونَ، لِرَبِِّـنا حـامِـدُونَ

Invocation for entering a town or city
208:- O Allah, Lord of the seven heavens and all they overshadow, Lord of the seven worlds and all they uphold, Lord of the devils and all they lead astray, Lord of the winds and all they scatter. I ask You for the goodness of this town and for the goodness of its people, and for the goodness it contains. I seek refuge in You from its evil, from the evil of its people and from the evil it contains.

أللّـهُمَّ رَبَّ السَّـمواتِ السّـبْعِ وَما أَظْلَلَـنَ، وَرَبَّ الأَراضيـنَ

السّـبْعِ وَما أقْلَلْـنَ، وَرَبَّ الشَّيـاطينِ وَما أَضْلَلْـنَ، وَرَبَّ الرِّياحِ

وَما ذَرَيْـنَ، أَسْـأَلُـكَ خَيْـرَ هذهِ الْقَـرْيَةِ وَخَيْـرَ أَهْلِـها،

وَخَيْـرَ مَا فِيهَا، وَأَعـوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَـرِّها وَشَـرِّ أَهْلِـها، وَشَـرِّ مَا

فِيهَا


208. Allaahumma Rabbas-samaawaatis-sab'i wa maa 'adhlalna, wa Rabbal-'aradheenas-sab'i wa maa 'aqlalna, wa Rabbash-shayaateeni wa maa 'adhlalna, wa Rabbar-riyaahi wa maa tharayna. 'As'aluka khayra haathihil-qaryati wa khayra 'ahlihaa, wa khayra maafeehaa, wa 'a'oothu bika min sharrihaa, wa sharri 'ahlihaa, wa shard maa feehaa.

Reference: Al-Hakim who graded it authentic and Ath-Tfaahabi agreed 2/100, and Ibn As-Sunni (no. 524). Al-Hafidh graded it good in his checking of Al-'Athkdr 5/154. Ibn Baz said in Tuhfatul-'Akhydr p. 37, that An-Nasa'i recorded it with a good chain of narration.

لا إلهَ إلاّ اللّه وحدَهُ لا شريكَ لهُ، لهُ المُلْـكُ ولهُ الحَمْـد، يُحْيـي

وَيُميـتُ  وَهُوَ حَيٌّ لا يَمُـوت، بِيَـدِهِ الْخَـيْرُ وَهوَ عَلىَ كلّ شيءٍ

قَدِيرٌ

كُنْـت

Reference: At-Tirmithi. See Al-Albani, Sahih At-Tirmithi, 3/155.



Glorifying and magnifying Allah on the journey
214:- Jabir (RA), said: Whenever we went up a hill we would say:
Allah is the Most Great

اللهُ أَكْـبَر

Allaahu 'Akbar

And when we descended we would say:
Glory is to Allah.

  سُبْـحانَ الله

Subhaanallaah

Reference: Al-Bukhari, cf. Al-Asqalani, Fathul-Bari 6/135.



The traveler's invocation at dawn
215:- He Who listens has heard that we praise Allah for the good things He gives us. Our Lord, be with us and bestow Your favor upon us. I seek the protection of Allah from the Fire.

سَمِـعَ سـامِعُ بِحَمْـدِ اللهِ وَحُسْـنِ بَلائِـهِ عَلَيْـنا. رَبَّنـا

صـاحِبْـنا وَأَفْـضِل عَلَيْـنا عائِذاً باللهِ مِنَ النّـار


215. Sami'a saami'un bihamdillaahi wa husni balaa'ihi 'alaynaa. Rabbanaa saahibnaa, wa 'afdhil 'alaynaa 'aa'ithan billaahi minan-naar.

Reference: Muslim 4/2086, the meaning of sami'a saami'un (who listens has heard) is that 'a witness has witnessed our praise of Allah due to His blessings and favor upon us.' It could also be read samma'a saami'un, in which case it means 'one who has heard this statement of mine will convey it to another and he will say it as well.' This is due to the attention given to the Thikr (remembrance of Allah) and supplications made during the early morning hours. The meaning of his saying 'Our Lord, be with us and bestow Your favor upon us' is: 'Our Lord, protect us and guard us. Bless us with Your numerous bounties, and avert from us every evil.' See An-Nawawi, Sharh Sahih Muslim 17/39.



Invocation for a layover (stopping along the way) on the journey
216:- I seek refuge in the Perfect Words of Allah from the evil of what He has created.

أَعـوذُ بِكَلِـماتِ اللّهِ التّـامّاتِ مِنْ شَـرِّ ما خَلَـق

216. 'A'oothu bikalimaatil-laahit-taammaati min sharri maa khalaq.

Reference: Muslim 4/2080.



What to say upon returning from a journey
217:- From every elevated point say three times:

Allah is the Most Great

ا للهُ أَكْـبَر، ا للهُ أَكْـبَر، ا للهُ أَكْـبَر

Allaahu 'Akbar

And then recite:
None has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone , Who has no partner . His is the dominion and His is the praise , and He is Able to do all things. We return repentant to our Lord, worshipping our Lord , and praising our Lord . He fulfilled His Promise, He aided His slave, and He alone defeated the Confederates.

لا إلهَ إلاّ اللّهُ وَحْـدَهُ لا شريكَ لهُ، لهُ الملكُ ولهُ الحَمْد، وهُوَ على كُلّ

شَيءٍ قَـدير، آيِبـونَ تائِبـونَ عابِـدونَ لِرَبِّـنا حـامِـدون،

صَدَقَ اللهُ وَعْـدَه، وَنَصَـرَ عَبْـدَه، وَهَزَمَ الأَحْـزابَ وَحْـدَه


217. Laa 'ilaaha 'illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku, wa lahul-hamdu, wa Huwa 'alaa kutti shay 'in Qadeer, 'aa'iboona, taa'iboona, 'aabidoona, lirabbinaa haamidoona, sadaqallaahu wa'dahu, wa nasara 'abdahu, wa hazamal-'ahzaaba wahdahu.

Reference: Bukhari 7/163, Muslim 2/980. The Prophet (SAW) used to say this when returning from a campaign or from Hajj.



What to say if something happens to please you or to displease you

218:- When something happened that pleased him , the Prophet (SAW) used to say:
Praise is to Allah Who by His blessings all good things are perfected .

الْحَمْـدُ للهِ الَّذي بِنِـعْمَتِهِ تَتِـمُّ الصّـالِحَات

Alhamdu lillaahil-lathee bini'matihi tatimmus-saalihaat.

And if something happened that displeased him , he used to say:
Praise is to Allah in all circumstances.

الْحَمْـدُ للهِ على كُـلِّ حَالٍ

Alhamdu lillaahi 'alaa kulli haal.

Reference: Ibn As-Sunni, 'Amalul-Yawm wal-Laylah, and Al-Hakim who graded it authentic 1/499. See also Al-Albani, Sahihul-Jami' As-Saghir 4/201.
