The Travel Dua (prayer)

In Islam we are taught to be in constant state of  remembrance (dhikr) of Allah. But you know life gets in the way and some Muslims, including myself, just get too preoccupied with whatever activities our day throws at us. So we forget. Traveling in itself is a stressful thing for most us and for people like myself, a home-buddy who likes the idea of traveling more than the reality of it the stress is more. Not mention the whole flying-while-Muslim bit which I have been hearing horror stories  left and right  from family members and friends and  no wonder I am even more stressed these... but insha'Allah I hope that non of that happens to me. 

It is more important now more than ever that Muslims make dua (prayer) before traveling so Allah can give us the strength to cope with all the stressful situations that we come across at the Airports. With that mind, I will go ahead and post this travel dua for myself and any of you  who are traveling anytime soon or in the distant future. 


Allah is the Most Great. Allah is the Most Great. Allah is the Most Great. Glory is to Him Who has provided this for us though we could never have had it by our efforts. Surely, unto our Lord we are returning. O Allah, we ask You on this our journey for goodness and piety, and for works that are pleasing to You . O Allah , lighten this journey for us and make its distance easy for us . O Allah, You are our Companion on the road and the One in Whose care we leave our family . O Allah , I seek refuge in You from this journey's hardships, and from the wicked sights in store and from finding our family and property in misfortune upon returning.
