All set. Ready to Go.
We are flying and it’s Thursday. We are flying on Thursday again.
I was wondering how I managed to notice that most of the times it was Thursday whenever I flew.
Oh. I see…
I recite surah al Kahaf from al Qur’an on Thursday night and in flights, I am reciting al kahaf mostly.
You know what…
Around four years back I had an awesome experience with my surah al kahaf in the sky…I mean…in flight.
I was planning to share that chilling experience with you all today. However, If my husband would have seen me sitting with my computer in the mid of this travel chaos he would have thrown my computer (with me) out of the window of our 11th-floor apartment. OUCH 😯!
In sha Allaah will share that someday.
For now, as I am ready to leave I will share something brief and very beautiful. And, I am writing it from a small device. So, overlook the typoes.
This is the Dua of Travel. YEAH. I know. I know that you know 😏.
But, did you know it all?
Like me, you must be reading only the mini version of that dua till now. So, let’s know it all.
See how beautiful and profound it is and what it teaches us through our day to day travels.
First greatness of Allaah SWT is proclaimed. Then He is glorified. Then our helplessness before Him is indicated. And, after that it makes us ponder over the ultimate travel, the journey towards hereafter. SubhanAllaah. And, after all, that the dua encourages us to take out best from our journey and to be God-conscious even on wheels. SubhanAllaah. What a beautiful Deen ❤!
Here goes the Dua…
AllaahuAkbar. Allaahuakbar. Allaahuakbar.
Glory is to Him who had provided this for us though we could never have it by our efforts. Surely, unto our Lord we are returning. O Allaah, we ask You on this our journey for goodness and piety, and for works that are pleasing to You. O Allaah, lighten this journey for us and make its distance easy for us. O Allaah, You are our Companion on the road and the One in whose care we leave our family. O Allaah, 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.
Lovely. Ok, guys. Gotta go. Need to close it before my husband throws me out from the window. Ouch!
Bye. Bye 🙋♀️.
And, yes. Don’t forget to recite surah al Kahaf tonight.
And, don’t just recite but ponder over its lessons. Think of why it is so important to recite it every week.
