When Someone Else is Going on a Journey (194)
It is reported by way of Abi Hurayrata , that a man said: O' Messenger of Allah: I want to go on a journey, so advise me. He said: "You should take shield from the anger of Allah [Taqwã might also be translated as "be pious" or "be watchful of Allah"], and magnify Allah [Takbeer is to say: 'Allãhu 'akbaru ] upon every elevation." After the man left, he said: 'Allãhumma 'itwi lahul-bu`da wa hawwin `alayhi 'as-safara(208)

(208) O' my ilãh fold the distance for him, and facilitate the journey upon him.


At-Tirmithi said it was comely. Al-Albãni agreed, and mentioned that Ibn Hibbãn (#2378, 2379) also reported it, and that Al-Hãkim (#98/2) said it was sound. Al-Albãni included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #137.
