Rushing to return home (67 / 68)

Bismihi Ta’ala

Ahaadeeth and Sunnats of Traveling

Rushing to return home

67.)  When Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) was returning home from a journey, he would say : ‘I am hurrying to get back to Madinah. Whoever else is in a hurry to get back, can accompany me.’
[Sayyidina Abu Humayd (RA) - Sahih Bukhari]

68.)  Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) said : “Traveling is a fraction of punishment. It prevents one from one’s normal routine of sleeping, eating, and drinking. Thus, if any one accomplishes the object of his travel, he should hasten back to his home.”
[Hazrat Abu Hurairah (RA)  - Sahih Bukhari]

-      Hazrat Ayesha (RA) says: “When anyone has completed Hajj, he should hasten in returning home, as this is more rewarding.” [Bayhaqi]

-      Travels should not be prolonged unduly. When the purpose of the journey is accomplished, one should hasten back home, which is the place of comfort.
