3. HIS DUA WHEN SITTING ON HIS MOUNT

 

30. In wali al-Lali: About the Noble Prophet XE "Holy Prophet"  9: Whenever he sat on his mount as he departed for a journey, he would recite takbr thrice then say:

سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي سَخَّرَ لَنَا هٰذَا وَمَا كُنَّا لَهُ مُقْرِنِينَ، وَإِنَّا إِلـى رَبِّنَا لَمُنْقَلِبُونَ. أَللّٰهُمَّ إِنَّا نَسْأَلُكَ فِي سَفَرِنَا هٰذَا الْبِرَّ وَالتَقْوى وَمِنَ الْعَمَلِ مَا تَرْضى. أَللّٰهُمَّ هَوِّنْ عَلَيْـنَا سَفَرَنَا وَأَطْوِ عَنَّا بُعْدَهُ. أَللّٰهُمَّ أَنْتَ الصَّاحِبُ فِي السَّفَرِ وَالْخَلِيفَةُ فِي الأَهْلِ. أَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ وَعَثَاءِ السَّفَرِ وَكَآبَةِ الْمُنْقَلَبِ وَسُوءِ الْمَنْظَرِ فِي الأَهْلِ وَالْمَالِ.

Glory be to Allh XE "Allh"  who has made this (animal) subservient to us and we would not be able to do it (ourselves) and surely to our Lord will we return. O Allh! We ask that this journey be accompanied with goodness and piety and with actions that please You. O Allh! Make this journey easy for us and let us cover its distance quickly. O Allh! You are the Companion in the journey and the Guardian over the family. O Allh! I seek refuge with You from the difficulties of the journey and from the melancNoble of being in a different place and from witnessing anything bad in the family and wealth.

And when he returned, he said:

آئِبُونَ تَائِبُونَ عَابِدُونَ لِرَبِّنَا حَامِدُونَ.

We return (home while) repenting, worshipping and praising our Lord.[i]
