(May Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace)

Leaving the Home

1. The Messenger of Allaah (صلي الله عليه و سلم) said: Whoever says – upon going out of his home: 

 

 بِسْمِ اللهِ، تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللهِ، وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللهِ تعالى 

(I put my trust in Allaah, there is neither might nor strength, except by Allaah, the Most High)

 

it is said to him: You have been sufficed, protected, and guided, and the Shaytaan would move aside from him, then say to another Shaytaan: What access do you have to a man that has been guided, sufficed, and protected?”

2. Umm Salamah said: The Messenger of Allaah (صلي الله عليه و سلم) never ever left my house with out raising his gaze to the sky and saying:

 

الَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ أَنْ أَضِلَّ، أّوْ أُضَلَّ
 أَوْ أَزِلَّ، أَوْ أُزَلَّ، أَوْ أَظْلِمَ، أَوْ أُظْلَمَ، أَوْ 
أَجْهَلَ، أَوْ يُجْهَلَ عَلَيَّ 

(O Allaah, I solicit protection in You lest I go astray or that I be led astray, that I drift or that I be caused to drift, that I commit injustice or that I be subject to injustice, that I act in ignorance or that I be acted upon in ignorance).
