Ahaadeeth and Sunnats of Traveling
Safeguarding one’s belongings on a journey
41.) Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) said : “When you camp at any place and offload your luggage, draw a circle around it and say :
لَا شَرِيْكَ لَه رَبِّيْ اَللّٰهُ
“Allah is my Lord. He has no partner.”
This will ensure the safety of one’s belongings.
[Hazrat Uthmaan (RA)]
- A person should be extra vigilant of his belongings whilst on a journey, as the loss of basic items could make the situation very unpleasant.
