Taking one's wife on a journey (35)

Bismihi Ta’ala

Ahaadeeth and Sunnats of Traveling

To take one’s wife with on a journey

35.)  If Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) intended taking any of his wives with on a journey, he would draw lots and take the wife whose name was drawn.
[Hazrat Ayesha (RA) - Sahih Bukhari]

-      Note : It is advisable to take one’s wife along if she can be accommodated.
-      Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) took his wives with him even when he went out in Jihaad.
-     If one has more than one wife, it is Sunnah to draw lots, if one does not intend taking all of them with.
