Collection of doas for musafir

As Allah’s faithful servant, it is only apt to ask for protection from Him before, during and after our journeys, for only He has the power to protect and grant wishes. Being so far away from the safety of home, a Musafir is in a vulnerable position and is constantly exposed to all kinds of risks and danger. Below is a collection of du’as that Muslim travellers can recite for a safer and smoother journey. By God’s willing, you and the household you leave behind will be protected from physical and spiritual harm by reciting these du’as.

When leaving home


 ‘In the name of Allah, I place my trust in Allah, and there is neither might nor power except with Allah.’


‘O’ Allah, I seek refuge with You from leading others astray, causing others to slip or being caused to slip by others, doing wrong or being wronged by others, or behaving foolishly or being treated foolishly by others.’

When getting on a mode of transport


‘In the name of Allah and all praise if for Allah. How perfect He is, the One Who has placed this (Transport) at our service and we ourselves would not have been capable of that, and to our Lord if our final destiny. All praise is for Allah, All praise if for Allah, All praise if for Allah. Allah is the greatest. How perfect You are, O’ Allah, verily I have wronged my soul, so forgive me, for surely none can forgive sins except You.’

When setting out on a journey


‘Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest. How perfect He is, The One Who has place this (transport) at our service, and we ourselves would not have been capable of that, and to our Lord if our final destiny. O’ Allah, we ask You for birr and taqwaa in this journey of ours, and we ask You for deeds which please You. O’ Allah, facilitate our journey and let us cover its distance quickly. O’ Allah, You are The Companion on the journey and The Successor over the family. O’ Allah, I take refuge with You from the difficulties of travel, from having a change of hearts and being in a bad predicament, and I take refuge in You from an ill-fated outcome with wealth and family.’

…upon returning the same supplication is recited with the following addition:


‘We return, repent, worship and praise our Lord.’

From resident to traveller


‘I place your religion, your faithfulness and the end of your deeds in the trust of Allah.’


‘May Allah endow you with taqwaa, forgive your sins and facilitate all good for you, wherever you are.’

From traveller to resident


‘I place you in the trust of Allah, whose trust is never misplaced.’

When stopping somewhere on a journey


‘I take refuge in Allah’s perfect words from the evil that He has created.’

When entering a city, town or village


‘O’ Allah, Lord of the seven heavens and all that they envelop, Lord of the seven earths and all that they carry, Lord of the devils and all whom they misguide, Lord of the winds and all whom they whisk away. I ask You for the goodness of this village, the goodness of its inhabitants and for all the goodness found within it and I take refuge with You from the evil of this village, the evil of its inhabitants and from all the evil found within it.’

From guest to host


‘O’ Allah, bless for them, that which You have provided them, forgive them and have mercy upon them.’

As dawn approaches


‘May a witness, be witness to our praise of Allah for His favours and bounties upon us. Our Lord, protect us, show favour upon us and deliver us from every evil. I take refuge in Allah from the fire.’

When arriving home


‘In the name of Allah we enter and in the name of Allah we leave, and upon our Lord we place our trust.’
