Meeting and Greeting (28)

Bismihi Ta’ala

Ahaadeeth and Sunnats of Traveling

It is Sunnah to meet and shake hands
before departing for a journey

28.)  Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) said :  “When anyone intends traveling, he should meet his fellow brothers, for their supplications added to his own supplications will only be a means of additional goodness.”
[Hazrat Abu Hurairah (RA) ]

Note : One should meet one’s family members and associates before traveling and request them to make dua. This would go a long way in ensuring the well being of the traveler.
