Is there a du’aa’ which will protect the traveller until he returns to his family?

Is there a du’aa’ which will protect the traveller until he returns to his family?
What is the du’aa’ that if a person says it when he is travelling, he will come back to his family safe and sound by virtue of this du’aa’?.


Praise be to Allaah.

In the
Sunnah there are several adhkaar which it is mustahabb for the one who wants
to travel to say. These include: 

It was
narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) that
when the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon
him) mounted his camel to set out on a journey, he would say takbeer three
times, then he would say: “Subhaan allathi sakhkhara lana hadha wa ma
kunna lahu muqrineen wa inna ila rabbina la munqaliboon. Allaahumma inna
nas’aluka fi safarina haadha al-birra wa’l-taqwa wa min al-‘aml ma tarda,
Allaahumma hawwin ‘alayna safarana haadha watwi ‘anna bu’dahu. Allaahumma
anta al-saahib fi’l-safar wa’l-khaleefah fi’l-ahl. Allaahumma inni a’oodhu
bika min wa’tha’ al-safar wa ka’aabat al-manzar wa su’ al-munqalib
fi’l-maali wa’l-ahl (Glory be to the One Who has placed this (transport)
at our service and we ourselves would not have been capable of that, and to
our Lord is our final destiny. O Allaah, we ask You for righteousness and
piety in this journey of ours, and we ask You for deeds which please You. O
Allaah, facilitate our journey and let us cover its distance quickly. O
Allaah, You are the Companion on the journey and the Successor (the One Who
guards them in a person’s absence) over the family. O Allaah, I seek refuge
with You from the difficulties of travel, from having a change of heart and
from being in a bad predicament, and I seek refuge with You from an
ill-fated outcome with regard to wealth and family).”
And when he returned he would say the same words, with the following
addition: “Aayiboona taa’iboona ‘aabidoona li
rabbina haamidoon (Returning, repenting, worshipping and praising our

Narrated by
Muslim (1342). 

The phrase “wa
ma kunna lahu muqrineen (and we ourselves would not have been capable of
that)” means: we would not have been able to subdue it and make use of it,
had not Allaah placed it at our service.    

difficulties of travel” mean hardships; “from having a change of heart”
means changes caused by grief and the like: “ill-fated outcome” means, upon
one’s return. See Sharh al-Nawawi ‘ala Muslim (9/111). 

We do not
know whether there is any specific du’aa’ in the Sunnah for protecting a
traveller until he returns to his family safe and sound but if the traveller
regularly recites the adhkaar for morning and evening, and asks Allaah to
keep him safe and sound, and says the du’aa’ for travelling that is quoted
above, then we hope that Allaah will answer his prayer and protect him and
bring him back safely to his family, unless Allaah wills in His wisdom to
test His slave, in which case nothing can put back the decree of Allaah. 

What he
should remember, when he wants to go out of his house – in order to travel
or for any other purpose – and he hopes that Allaah will protect him, is the
report narrated from Anas ibn Maalik (may Allaah be pleased with him),
according to which the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of
Allaah be upon him) said:  

says – i.e., when he leaves his house - Bismillaah, tawakkaltu ‘ala
Allaah, wa laa hawla wa laa quwwata illa Billaah (In the name of Allaah,
I put my trust in Allaah and there is no power and no strength except with
Allaah)” , it will be said to him: You are taken care of and you are
protected and guided, and the devils will move away from him, and one devil
says: What can you do with a man who has been guided, taken care of and

Narrated by
Abu Dawood (5095) and al-Tirmidhi (3462); classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in
Saheeh Abi Dawood. 

It says in
‘Awn al-Ma’bood (13/297): 

“Then it is
said” means, an angel called out to him: O slave of Allaah. “You have been
guided” i.e., to the path of truth , “you have been taken care of” means
your worries are taken care of.  

For some of the du’aa’s that are prescribed in Islam, please see the answer to question no. 12173 

And Allaah knows best.

The things Muslim should do. We as Muslim should give our first priority to learn quran and do quran reading to seek the right path of Islam and through the quran teaching we can achieve the goal of our life and the deputy to guiding our kids to learn Koran that we should fulfill with perfecting kids quran recitation power and knowledge in Islam and also motivate our children’s to do quran memorization and then guide them to learn holy Quran tafseer  so they could understand the quran in Arabic and the quranic translation and also let or kids to listen quran from top quran reciters to get them inspired. at last I would pray for all my Muslim brothers and sisters that may Allah accept there Dwas and prayers and inspire you with the teachings of our holy prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) so let us join hands and spread the knowledge that every Muslim is born to spread the knowledge of Islam now a day many online quran tutor are available for kids and elders to learn tajweed quran and with exact pronunciation and perfect the quran recitation online with qualified teaching staff  who can guide then with there experience and knowledge and the write teachings to help us in achieving the path of Jannah
