Ahaadeeth and Sunnats of Traveling
Offering Qurbaani whilst on a journey
55.) Hazrat Thaubaan (RA) narrates that Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) offered Qurbaani and then said to him : “O Thaubaan, treat this meat for us.” Thaubaan (RA) says : ‘We continued eating the meat during our journey, until we reached Madina Tayyibah’
[Sunan Abu Dawud]
- In those times, people used to dry the meat and spice it so that it could be used after a period of time, without going bad.
- A traveler is not obligated to offer Qurbaani. If he does so, he would be fulfilling the Sunnah, which is meritorious.
