Ahaadeeth and Sunnats of Traveling
To receive travellers upon their return
77.) Sayyidina Saa`ib Ibn Yazid (RA) says : “We went till Thaniyyatul Wada with the rest of the children, in order to receive and welcome Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam).”
Note : When departing for a journey, it is the duty of the traveller to meet his family, companions, and others.
However, it is their obligation to go and meet him when he returns. This etiquette is deduced from the practice of Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) and the Sahabah (RA).
