Safeguarding one's luggage (41)

                                      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.
