Assalamalekum, In my family, if any
family member is going out for any
thing, usually elder member they
read some surah and blow on the
people who are going out. This is
basically for the safe journey. Is it a
right practice?


All perfect praise be to Allah, The
Lord of the Worlds. I testify that
there is none worthy of worship
except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.
It is more appropriate in this regard
to apply the Sunnah in bidding
farewell to a traveler as this is a
means of protecting him/her from
evil. Ibn ‘Umar, may Allah be pleased
with him, narrated that when the
Prophet was to bid farewell to a
man, he would hold his hand and he
would not leave it until the man
himself dropped the Prophet’s hand,
and he would say to him: “Astawdi’u
Allaha deenaka, wa amaanatika, wa
khawaateema A’malika.” ‘I place
your religion, your faithfulness and
the ends of your deeds in the trust of
Allah.’ [Ahmad, At-Tirmithi, An-
Nasaa’ee and Ibn Maajah]

Also, in another Hadeeth narrated
by Ibn ‘Umar, may Allah be pleased
with him, as well, the Prophet
said: “When Allah is entrusted with
something, He would preserve
it.” [Ahmad]
As regards what is mentioned in the
question, it appears - Allah Knows
best – that it is permissible to do it
without believing that it is a Sunnah
to do it.
Allah Knows best.
