Eight prayers to be said before Leaving Home from "BAQIYATUS SALEHAT"
First: Imam al-Sadiq (`a) is reported to have said: say the following words 3 times just before leaving. If he does, he will be kept under the custody of Allah swt until He returns him to the place he has left:
Allah is the Most Great.
Then, repeat the following statement three times:
I leave (putting my trust) in Allah,
wa billahi adkhulu
I return (putting my trust) in Allah,
وَعَلَىٰ ٱللَّهِ اتَوَكَّلُ
wa `ala allahi atawakkalu
and on Allah do I depend.
Then, say the following statement, yet one time only:
wa qini sharra kulli dabbatin anta akhidun binasiyatiha
and guard me against the evil of every living creature that You hold by its forelock.
إِنَّ رَبِّي عَلَىٰ صِرَاطٍ مُسْتَقِيمٍ
inna rabbi `ala siratin mustaqimin
Surely, my Lord is on the right path.
Second: Imam al-Sajjad (`a) is reported to have said: At the door of your house just before you leave it, you may say the following words:
بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ وَبِٱللَّهِ
bismillahi wa billahi
In the Name of Allah (I begin) and in Allah (I trust).
تَوكَّلْتُ عَلَىٰ ٱللَّهِ
tawkkaltu `ala allahi
I put my trust in Allah.
Third: Imam al-Baqir (`a) is reported to have said: Whoever says the following statement when he leaves his house, Almighty Allah will save him from whatever of his this-worldly and otherworldly affairs that concern him:
In the Name of Allah (I begin).
Sufficient to me is Allah.
وَتَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَىٰ ٱللَّهِ
wa tawakkaltu `ala allahi
I put my trust in Allah.
allahumma inni as'aluka khayra ma kharajtu lahu
O Allah, I beseech You for success in what I am leaving to do
وَاعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا خَرَجْتُ لَهُ
wa a`udhu bika min sharri ma kharajtu lahu
and pray Your protection against failure in what I am leaving to do.
اَللَّهُمَّ اوْسِعْ عَلَيَّ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ
allahumma awsi` `alayya min fadlika
O Allah, (please) expand Your favors to me,
وَاتْمِمْ عَلَيَّ نِعْمَتَكَ
wa atmim `alayya ni`mataka
make perfect Your graces to me,
وَٱسْتَعْمِلْنِي فِي طَاعَتِكَ
wasta`milni fi ta`atika
dedicate me to obedience to You,
وَٱجْعَلْ رَغْبَتِي فِيمَا عِنْدَكَ
waj`al raghbati fima `indaka
make me desire for what You have in possession,
وَتَوَفَّنِي عَلَىٰ مِلَّتِكَ وَمِلَّةِ رَسُولِكَ
wa tawaffani `ala millatika wa millati rasulika
and cause me to die carrying the principles You have instructed and the principles of Your Messenger,
صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ
salla allahu `alayhi wa alihi
may Allah bless him and his Household.
Fifth: Imam al-Rida (`a) is reported to have said: My father (`a) used to say the following words whenever he would leave his house: Image
بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
bismillahi alrrahman alrrahimi
In the Name of Allah; the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.
خَرَجْتُ بِحَوْلِ ٱللَّهِ وَقُوَّتِهِ
kharajtu bihawli allahi wa quwwatihi
I am leaving by the might and power of Allah,
لاَ بِحَوْلٍ مِنِّي وَقُوَّتِي
la bihawlin minni wa quwwati
but not by my own might or power;
بَلْ بِحَوْ لِكَ وَقُوَّتِكَ يَا رَبِّ
bal bihawlika wa quwwatika ya rabbi
rather, by the might and power of You, O Lord,
seeking Your sustenance.
فَاتِنِي بِهِ فِي عَافِيَةٍ
fa'tini bihi fi `afiyatin
So, (please) provide me with it easily.
Sixth: Imam al-Sadiq (`a) is reported to have said, “Whoever repeats Surah al-Tawhid ten times before he leaves his house, will be kept under the safeguard and protection of Almighty Allah until he returns home.”
Seventh:Imam Abul Hassan Musa (`a) is reported to have said: When you intend to travel, you may stop at the door of your house and recite
Surah al-Fatiah (No. 1) in front of you as well as to your right and left sides. You may also recite Surah-Tawhid, Surah al-Falaq (No. 113), and Sura al-Naas(No. 114). You may then say the following prayer

O Allah, (please) safeguard me and safeguard whatever is with me,
وَسَلِّمْنِي وَسَلِّمْ مَا مَعِيَ
wa sallimni wa sallim ma ma`iya
keep me safe and keep safe whatever is with me,
