Hadith #1

1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ النَّوْفَلِيِّ عَنِ السَّكُونِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ الله (صلّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) مَا اسْتَخْلَفَ عَبْدٌ عَلَى أَهْلِهِ بِخِلاَفَةٍ أَفْضَلَ مِنَ رَكْعَتَيْنِ يَرْكَعُهُمَا إِذَا أَرَادَ سَفَراً يَقُولُ اللهمَّ إِنِّي أَسْتَوْدِعُكَ نَفْسِي وَأَهْلِي وَمَالِي وَدِينِي وَدُنْيَايَ وَآخِرَتِي وَأَمَانَتِي وَخَوَاتِيمَ عَمَلِي إِلاَّ أَعْطَاهُ الله مَا سَأَلَ.

1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from af-Nawfafiy, from af-Sakuniy who has said the following: ”Abu ’Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that the Messenger of Allah has said, ‘A servant (of Allah) is not able to leave a successor among his people in his absence better than two Rak‘at Salah (prayer). It is a Salah (prayer) that he performs when leaving for a journey. He should say, “O Allah, I leave myself, my family, my properties, my religion, my worldly affairs, the affairs of my next life, my trust and the consequences of my deeds in your trust.” He (Allah) grants him what he has asked.’”
