Qurbaani (55)

Bismihi Ta’ala

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.
