Shortening the Prayers (At-Taqseer)

Sahih Bukhari

by Imam Bukhari, translation by M. Muhsin Khan
205. Narrated Hafs bin `Asim
Ibn `Umar went on a journey and said, "I accompanied the Prophet and he did not offer optional prayers during the journey, and Allah says: 'Verily! In Allah's Apostle you have a good example to follow.' " (33.21)
206. Narrated Ibn `Umar
I accompanied Allah's Apostle and he never offered more than two rak`at during the journey. Abu Bakr, `Umar and `Uthman used to do the same.
207. Narrated Ibn Abu Laila
Only Um Hani told us that she had seen the Prophet (p.b.u.h) offering the Duha (forenoon prayer). She said, "On the day of the conquest of Mecca, the Prophet took a bath in my house and offered eight rak`at. I never saw him praying such a light prayer but he performed perfect prostration and bowing. Narrated `Abdullah bin Amir that his father had told him that he had seen the Prophet (p.b.u.h) praying Nawafil at night on the back of his Mount on a journey, facing whatever direction it took.
208. Narrated Salim bin `Abdullah
Ibn `Umar said, "Allah's Apostle used to pray the Nawafil on the back of his Mount (carriage) by signs facing any direction." Ibn `Umar used to do the same.
209. Narrated Salim's father
The Prophet used to offer the Maghrib and `Isha' prayers together whenever he was in a hurry on a journey. Narrated Ibn `Abbas: Allah's Apostle used to offer the Zuhr and `Asr prayers together on journeys, and also used to offer the Maghrib and `Isha' prayers together. Narrated Anas bin Malik: The Prophet used to offer the Maghrib and the `Isha' prayers together on journeys.
