Question: Is it permissible to hang the supplication of the traveller (du’aa of travelling) in the car so the people who haven’t memorised it yet can read it?



Answer: First of all, do not do this and may Allaah bless you. I don’t know of any of the Salafus-Saalih who used to hang the supplications. Secondly, try hard to memorise the supplications as there is barakah (blessing) in that and a great reward you will get from Allaah ‘Azza wa Jal. These supplications are means of worshipping Allaah so their memorization is worship in itself. Hanging the supplication is demeaning them; so if you fear not being able to memorize them, then place them in your pocket, or the glove compartment of your car so you can read them when you wish, and return them to their place when you have finished reading them.
