A Muslim views travelling as a necessary part of his life that he cannot do without. The Hajj, Umrah, Jihad, seeking knowledge, trade, visiting his brothers are either mandatory or obligatory parts of his life. Therefore, he is bound to travel. For this reason, the Shari’ah has covered the aspects of travelling and its etiquette. Such concern cannot be denied. A pious Muslim must learn these etiquette and apply them in his life.

1. That which has been prohibited by an evidence of the Qur’an:

a) The food of someone else who does not own it in any manner of ownership that would make it permissible for him to it. This is due to Allah the Almighty’s statement:” And eat up not one another’s property unjustly.” (Al-Baqarah: 188) and the statement of the Messenger:” And no one should milk the cow of anyone else, except with his permission.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

A Muslim views sleep as a great bless that Allah the Almighty has bestowed on His servants. Allah (swt) said:” It is out of His mercy that He has made for you night and day that you might rest therein (during the night) and that you may seek of His bounty (during the day), and in order that you may be grateful.” (Al-Qasas: 73). He further said in the Qur’an:” And We have made your sleep as a thing for rest.” (An-Naba’: 9).
