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.
