Before entering Madinah

Before entering Madinah

While travelling to Madinah, one should read Salawat and make as much Du’a as possible. One should take care that one does not neglect any Sunnat or even Mustahab act. Even though such actions are understood to be of comparative insignificance whilst on travels, they should be adopted with added zeal, as one is going to the place where the one who loved these actions, for himself and for his followers, rests (P.B.U.H.).
One should be full of zeal and enthusiasm. If this is not the case then one should read of the sacrifices of the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) for his Ummah and for the things that have been promised to us if we love and follow him. One should also increase the salutations that one sends upon him to try and achieve this effect.
