Traveling (1-3)


1.)  Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) said : ‘Travel and enhance your health.’
[Sayyidina Abu Sa`eed (RA)]

2.)  Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) said : ‘Travel and you will remain healthy.’
[Sayyidina Abu Hurairah (RA) ]

Note : By staying in one’s home environment all the time, a person becomes dull and stagnant. A change of climate and air is proven to be an excellent way of boosting one’s health. Meeting different people and seeing different things creates vibrancy and vitality in a person’s emotions and temperament.

3.)    Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) said : “Traveling is a fraction of punishment. It prevents one from one’s normal routine of sleeping, eating and drinking. This, if anyone has accomplished the purpose of his travel, he should hasten back to his home.”  
[Sayyidina Abu Hurairah (RA) - Bukhari Shareef]

Note : Due to the above, one should not travel unnecessarily, nor should one needlessly prolong one’s journey.
