Because that is what I will explain in this article. As Muslims, we must understand that. That’s why I wrote this article. So, you should read it to the end!

Specifically, there are some important things about “what to say in Islam when someone is traveling?” which I will explain in this article. Some of the important things I mean are as follows:

  1. Does Your Prayer Get Accepted When Traveling?

Does Your Prayer Get Accepted When Traveling?

The first important thing about “what to say in Islam when someone is traveling?” what I am going to explain now is “does your prayer get accepted when traveling?”. I want you to understand that first before you read any further explanations in this article because it is one of the basic questions about prayer when traveling that must be well understood.

Before I give you the answer to the question (does your prayer get accepted when traveling?), firstly, I will quote one hadith that is specifically related to this discussion. One hadith I am referring to is as follows:

مَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ يَدْعُو بِدُعَاءٍ إِلاَّ آتَاهُ اللَّهُ مَا سَأَلَ أَوْ كَفَّ عَنْهُ مِنَ السُّوءِ مِثْلَهُ، مَا لَمْ يَدْعُ بِإِثْمٍ أَوْ قَطِيعَةِ رَحِمٍ

There is no one who prays with a prayer except that Allah will grant what he asks for or turn him away from a similar evil, as long as he does not pray that contains a sin or severance of ties of kinship.

All readers! In general, if we understand the above hadith, we can conclude that Allah will answer all the prayers we say including prayer when traveling. But there are some things we must do before, during, and after saying prayer when traveling for Allah to accept our prayer. I’ll explain all of that in the next few paragraphs. So, I really hope you read this article to the end.

One important thing about prayer that I want to say here is, that prayer is worship in Islam. We can find this explanation in the hadith below:

عَنِ النُّعْمَانَ بْنِ بَشِيْرٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : إِنَّ الدُّعَاءَ هُوَ العِبَادَةُ

From Nukman bin Basyir radliyallahu anhuma, that the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, “Verily prayer is worship.”

So, we are highly recommended to read prayer when traveling.

That’s a brief explanation of “does your prayer get accepted when traveling?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.

What to Pray When You Are Traveling?

The second important thing about “what to say in Islam when someone is traveling?” what I will explain now is “what to pray when you are traveling?”. I want you to understand that now because it is one of the basic questions in this discussion that must be well understood.

Linguistically, traveling is leaving a place to go to another place. Generally, if we travel, we will leave our family, home and possessions at home. We will never know what will happen to us and them when traveling. Maybe good things will happen to us and them. But maybe bad things too.

Prayer is one way to gain salvation. We can say a prayer to Allah that He will give safety to us and those we leave behind when traveling. For this reason, we are strongly encouraged to read prayer when traveling.

So, if you ask me, “what to pray when you are traveling?”, the answer is “ourselves, our families, our homes, and the possessions we leave at home when traveling.” That’s the answer.

In the previous few paragraphs, I have explained that there are several things we must do before, during, and after saying a prayer so that Allah accepts our prayer. Some of the things I mean are as follows:

One: we must say prayer when traveling in earnest.

Two: we are encouraged to have wudu before saying prayer.

Three: we must try to prevent bad things from happening to us, our families, our homes and the possessions we leave at home when traveling.
