Abu Huraira, may Allah be pleased with him, said:

The Prophet ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) said, "Traveling is a kind of torture, as it prevents one from sleeping and eating! So when one has finished his job, he should return quickly to his family."


The Prophet ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) informs us in this commandment about the fact that travel is a type of torment; as it prevents one from his food, drink and sleep, in the sense that it prevents a person from eating his food at the time he wants and as he likes. Its preparation, the place where it is presented, the person who presents it, in addition to the other things he likes.

With regards to sleeping, it is a rest for the body, it is not achieved completely except in one`s house, on his bed, in the appropriate atmosphere, in the appropriate time and in the appropriate way.

Then it is really a part of the torment that man receives in this world, as well as the feeling of alienation and being distant from the family, friends and the places he used to go in his hometown in addition to the other liked things.

This is because he is afraid of the unspeakable consequences and the hardships he finds in moving from a place to another place, no matter how convenient and quick the travel is.

Whether the travel is obligatory, or pressing need, a Muslim is required to return to his country and his family, as the Prophet ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) commanded..

As for the traveler, if he returns from his journey after fulfilling his need, he will be relieved of the hardships that he found in his journey. Whatever the traveler likes the travel and used to it, he is inevitably in need of his country and his people, it is a part of righteousness to take this merciful commandment so that he returns to his family without overburdening himself with more hardships or wasting the time in useless matters.
