Returning Home (60)

Bismihi Ta’ala

Ahaadeeth and Sunnats of Traveling

When would Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) return to his family?

60.)                Hazrat Anas Ibn Maalik (RA) narrates that Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) would not return to his family at night upon arriving in Madina. Instead, he would return in the morning or evening.
[Sahih Bukhari / Mishkaat]

Note : Returning late at night, after a journey, is inconvenient to one’s family members and it should be avoided. The Hadeeth discourages late night returns.

Sayyidina Ka`b Ibn Maalik (RA) narrates that Nabi  (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) used to return from journeys at forenoon, and he would immediately proceed to the Masjid and perform two rakaats of Salaah. Thereafter, he would meet the people.
