Du’a when returning from a journey

Du’a when returning from a journey

When we are on a journey we are usually not in our normal routine and this can affect our duty to Allah Ta’ala.

So when returning home it is important to remind ourselves of these duties. 

Our beloved Nabi ﷺ would read the following Du’a frequently when returning from a journey.

Let’s learn it and read it whenever we are returning from our journeys too Insha’allah.

آيِبُوْنَ تَائِبُوْنَ عابِدُوْنَ لِرَبِّنَا حَامِدُوْنَ
