This autumn, we resume our explanation of Riyad al-Salihin from chapter 170: On what one says when mounting for a journey. Imam Nawawi introduced the theme of travel in chapter 167, which remains a focus until chapter 179. This term, we expect to encounter hadith expressing recommended litanies and advised observances before and during travel and the suggested practices that can be done after returning from a journey.
