Is Dua of the traveler only answered while he is on the road? – Answered by Shaykh Abdul Aziz Al Bur’ee
We have learned that the supplication of the traveler is answered; so is this only while he is on the road in travel, or does this include the duration of his stay away from home?
Shaykh Abdul Aziz Al Bur’ee :
His supplication—inshaAllah—is answered for the duration as long as he is considered a traveler. When he becomes a resident either by returning to his land or by the length of his stay such that he is considered a resident in the other land, then he becomes like the rest of the people.
