SAFETY WHILE TRAVELLING

Postby Reyhana » 20 Jul 2012, 13:07

With all these tragic accidents taking place nowadays, thought of sharing some Doas/Quranic verses from our Aimmah’s that offer protection while travelling.

(1) Before travelling recite Aytal kursi and give charity – you will reach your destination safe and sound.
Caution: Charity should be given to the needy/poor before you start your journey, not just keeping it aside to be given later.

(2) Imam Ja`ffer as-Sadiq (a.s.) has said: “Whoever recites QulHuwallahu Ahad (sura Tawheed or al-Ikhlaas) ten times when leaving his house, he will remain in the protection of the Al-Mighty Allah and His angles until he returns to his house”. Ref: (Makarimul Akhlaaq)

(3) Recitation of Quranic chapters during/before travelling:

Suratul Alaq (96)- safety from accidents.

Suratul Abasa (80)-If recited during journey,one will return home safely.

Suratul Naba (78)- If recited before travelling ones journey becomes easy.

Suratul Saff ( 61) –continuous recitation during dangerous journey protects the traveler till he reaches his destination.



(4) Imam Zayn al-`Abiden (‘a) is reported to have said: When I say the following words, I do not care even if both men and jinn help each other against me:
بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ وَبِٱللَّهِ
bismi allahi wa billahi
In the Name of Allah (I begin), in Allah (I trust),

وَمِنَ ٱللَّهِ وَإِلَىٰ ٱللَّهِ
wa min allahi wa ila allahi
from Allah (I derive power), to Allah (I refer all my affairs),

وَفي سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ
wa fe sabeli allahi
and on the way of Allah (I proceed).

اَللَّهُمَّ إِلَيْكَ اسْلَمْتُ نَفْسِي
allahumma ilayka aslamtu nafse
O Allah, to You have I submitted myself,

وَإِلَيْكَ وَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِي
wa ilayka wajjahtu wajhe
towards You have I turned to face,

وَإِلَيْكَ فَوَّضْتُ امْرِي
wa ilayka fawwaztu amre
and to You do I refer all my affairs;

فَٱحْفَظْنِي بِحِفْظِ ٱلإِيـمَانِ
fahfa¨ne bihif¨i al'emani
so, (please do) safeguard me with the guard of faith

مِنْ بَيْنِ يَدَيَّ وَمِنْ خَلْفِي
min bayni yadayya wa min khalfe
from my front, from my back,

وَعَنْ يَمِينِي وَعَنْ شِمَالِي
wa `an yamene wa `an shimale
from my right side, from my left side,

وَمِنْ فَوْقِي وَمِنْ تَحْتِي
wa min fawqe wa min tahte
from above, and from beneath me;

وَٱدْفَعْ عَنِّي بِحَوْلِكَ وَقُوَّتِكَ
wadfa` `anne bihawlika wa quwwatika
and (please do) defend me with Your Might and Power,

فَإِنَّهُ لاََ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِٱللَّهِ ٱلْعَلِيِّ ٱلْعَظِيمِ
fa'innahu la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahi al`aliyyi al`a¨emi
for there is no might and no power save with Allah the All-high and All-great.



P.S: The above doa is very effective and should be memorized to be recited at all times for protection of oneself and ones faith .
