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.
