Happy Prayers: When Traveling, The Afterlife, and 10 Manners of Prayer in Islam

Congratulations Prayer –For Muslims, praying to Allah SWT is something that must be done before carrying out any activity. Starting from eating, sleeping, studying, even going in and out of the bathroom, there are prayers that must be said in order to get the pleasure of Allah SWT. Allah SWT really likes His servant who always prays all the time, because that means his heart still remembers the name of Allah SWT as God Almighty. The meaning of these prayers, besides asking for smoothness by Him, can also be a prayer to avoid any distress. That is why, Rasulullah SAW also often reminds his people to always pray for safety in this world and the hereafter. So, how do you read prayers for congratulations, both before starting a long journey and praying for safety in this world and the hereafter? Come on, see the following review so thatSinaumed’s can practice these prayers and become a true Muslim who adheres to religion.

How to Pray for a Safe Journey?

In Islam, it is highly recommended to always pray before starting any activity, including when going on a long or short trip. Even when we are about to leave the house, there is also a special prayer that must be said to Him, so that we will always be under His protection. Just a little trivia , when in the middle of a trip, Sinaumed’s can also recite a prayer in the form of surah Al-Ikhlas. Reporting from jabar.nu , here are some prayers for congratulations when you want to travel both near and far.

When Leaving the House

If you want to travel a short distance, surely the time difference between entering the house and leaving the house is only a moment. Even so, Sinaumed’s as a Muslim also still has to recite prayers in and out of the house.

( Bismillâhi tawakkaltu ‘alallâhi wa lâ haula wa lâ quwwata illâ billâhil ‘aliyyil ‘adhîm )

Meaning: “In the name of Allah, I place my trust in Allah. There is no power and strength except with (the help of) Allah.”

When Entering the House

After traveling, both long and short distances, when you want to enter the house it is recommended to recite a prayer.

It means:

“O Allah, I really ask You for the goodness of entry and exit, by saying Your name we enter, by saying Your name we go out, and only in Allah, our Lord, we put our trust.”

While on a break from a long journey

When traveling long distances, for example in the context of going home on Eid, Sinaumed’s and his family will definitely rest first. Usually, this break is done in a rest area or restaurant where you eat with activities in the form of prayer, rest, and eating lunch that has been prepared beforehand. So, while taking a break from this long trip, Sinaumed’s, don’t forget to read a prayer of congratulations

( A’udzu bi kalimaatillahit taammaati min syarri maa khalaq)

Meaning: “I seek refuge in Allah’s perfect sentence from the evil of His creation.”

When You Arrive at Your Destination

When you reach your destination after traveling far or near, people usually say Hamdalah. That ‘s okay , because it means they are expressing gratitude for all the blessings that have been given by Allah SWT. But it turns out, there is a safe prayer for Muslims that can be read when you arrive at your destination. Here’s the prayer.

​​​​​​Allaahumma innii as aluka lhairohaa wa khaira Profesionalhaa wa khoiro maa fiihaa wa a’uudzubika min syarri haa wa syarri Profesionalhaa wa syarri maa fiihaa.

Meaning: “O Allah, I ask You for the good of this country and the good of its inhabitants and the good that is in it. I seek refuge in You from the evil of this land and the evil of its people and the evil that is in it.”

How to Pray Congratulations When Riding a Vehicle?

In our sophisticated era, to travel to a destination, whether at a short or short distance, it is rare to walk. Most of us, of course, use vehicles, whether by air, land or sea transportation. So, when you want to get on this vehicle, Sinaumed’s also has to recite a prayer of congratulations.

Generally, when you want to get on a vehicle to travel, you can recite the following prayer.

(Alhamdulillahilladzī/subhanalladzī sakhkhara lanā hādzā wa mā kunnā lahū muqrinīna, wa innā ila rabbinā lamunqalibūna)

Meaning: “Praise be to Allah/glorify God who has subjected all this to us. Even though we weren’t able to control it before. Indeed, we will return to our Lord.”

Air Vehicle

When we want to travel by means of air transportation, for example an airplane, we still have to pray to Him, OK? This is mandatory, especially for Muslims, so that they are given safety to their destination. Well, reported from orami , here is the prayer.

(Bismillahi majrêha wa mursâhâ, inna rabbî la ghafûrur rahîm, (Hud ayat 41). Wa mâ qadarullâha haqqa qadrihî, wal ardhu jamî’an qabdhatuhû yaumal qiyâmah, was samâwâtu mathwiyyâtum bi yamînihî, subhânah yurikû wa ta’âlâ ‘an m -Zumar verse 67).

Meaning: “Noah said, ‘Go up into it all of you by mentioning the name of Allah when sailing and anchoring.’ Truly my Lord is truly Forgiving, Most Merciful,’ (Sura Hud verse 41). They did not magnify God with the glory that they should. Whereas the earth is entirely in His hand on the Day of Judgment and the heavens will be rolled up with His right hand. Glory be to God and Most High is He from what they associate,” (Sura Az-Zumar verse 67).

How is the Prayer for the Happy World and the Hereafter?

Prayer is not only intended so that the activities we do are given smoothness by Him, but also so that we remain safe both in this world and the hereafter. This safety is also not only aimed at ourselves, but also with our families and even property. Reporting from jabar.nu , there are a number of prayers for the survivors of the afterlife that Sinaumed’s can pray anytime and anywhere so that they can still receive safety from Allah SWT.

Understanding 10 Adab in Praying to Allah SWT

Based on Ihya Ulumuddin by Imam Al-Ghazali and Al-Adzkar Al Muntakhabah min Kalami Sayyidil Abrar by Imam An-Nawawi, it is stated that there are 10 adabs in praying, namely.

1. Pray at the Efficient Time

The efficacious time means the noble time to pray to Allah SWT, for example on the day of Arafah, in the month of Ramadan, on Friday, at dawn, and the time of the last third of every night. This is also in line with the words of the Prophet Muhammad SAW:

Allah descends into the heavens of the world every night, when the last third of the night remains. Allah says, ‘Whoever prays to Me, I grant, whoever asks, I will give, and whoever asks for forgiveness I will surely forgive’ .” (HR. Muslim)

2. Take advantage of the Eligible Circumstances

Apart from praying at efficacious times as previously explained, we must also take advantage of special circumstances to recite prayers. For example, when the position of prostration, when it rains, before breaking the fast, when iqamah prays, and others. Regarding this, the following hadith has been narrated.

Abu Hurairah radhiallahu’anhu said, “Surely the gates of heaven open when jihad fi sabillillah is raging, when it rains, and when the iqamah is obligatory. Take advantage to pray at that time.” (Syarhus Sunnah al-Baghawi, 1: 327)

The Prophet shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said, “ The prayer between the call to prayer and the iqamah is not rejected. ” (Narrated by Abu Daud, Nasa’i, and Tirmidhi)

The Prophet Muhammad SAW said, ” The closest state between a servant and his Lord is when he prostrate. So pray more .” (HR. Muslim)

3. Facing Qibla

When saying a prayer to Allah SWT, including the prayer of congratulations, it must still be done facing the Qibla. Don’t forget to raise your hands and rub them over your face after you finish praying. There is a hadith regarding this etiquette of praying, namely.

From Jabir radhiallahu ‘anhu, that the Prophet Muhammad SAW when he was at Padang Arafah, he faced the Qibla, and he continued to pray until the sun set . (HR. Muslim)

From Salman radhiallahu ‘anhu , that the Prophet Muhammad SAW said, ” Indeed your Lord is Shame and Most Giving. He is ashamed of His servants when they raise their hands to Him then his servants return empty-handed (not granted). ” (Narrated by Abu Daud and Tirmidhi and He hasan khan)

4. Must be in a low voice and not aloud

When praying, it’s best to do it in a low voice and don’t need to be loud. We must adjust the volume as much as possible so that it is not too loud, but also not too low. This is in accordance with the word of Allah SWT,

Don’t harden your prayers and don’t underestimate them and find a middle way between the two. ” (QS. Al-Isra: 110)

5. Avoid Rhyming Sentences

When praying, it’s better not to need to use rhyming sentences because it’s feared that it will cross the line. The principle of prayer is not to overuse the words. This is in accordance with the word of Allah SWT, which states that:

Pray to your Lord with humility and a soft voice. Verily, Allah does not like those who exceed the limits. ” (QS. Al-A’raf: 55)

6. Done in a special way’

Prayer must be done solemnly, with full submission and fear of Allah SWT. Realizing that we are just ordinary people who are asking something from God Almighty. This is in accordance with the word of Allah SWT,

Verily they are the ones who always hasten in (doing) good deeds and they pray to Us with hope and anxiety. And they are people who are humble to Us. ” (QS. Al-Anbiya’: 90)

7. Strengthen your heart and believe that you will be granted

When reciting prayer readings to Allah SWT, we must be steady in heart and believe that the prayer will be granted by Allah SWT. This is also in line with the words of the Prophet Muhammad, which reads:

Don’t pray when you say, ‘O Allah, forgive me if You will. O Allah, have mercy on me, if You will’. He should make up his mind, because no one forces Allah .” (Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim)

8. Continue to Ask Allah SWT

Praying cannot be done just once or twice, it must be continuous. For example, “O Allah, forgive Your servant, forgive Your servant…, forgive Your servant who is full of sin. forgive ya Allah….” There is a hadith that states the existence of this adab praying, namely.

Ibn Mas’ud said, Rasulullah SAW when he prayed, he repeated it three times. And when he asked Allah, he repeated three times . (HR. Muslim)

9. Starting with the Recitation of Dhikr

The next adab of prayer is that you have to start reading the prayer by reciting the dhikr first. Not only dhikr, but also with praise to Allah SWT and blessings. Likewise when you want to end the prayer.

The Prophet Muhammad SAW once said, “ You will be granted (prayers) as long as you are not in a hurry. He said, ‘I have prayed, but it hasn’t been answered ‘.” (Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim)

10. Repentance

The point is that when facing and asking for prayer to Allah SWT, one must also comply with all the rules of His religion.
