Are there any other ahadeeth regarding being, living, or travelling alone?


نِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ “‏ لَوْ يَعْلَمُ النَّاسُ مَا فِي الْوَحْدَةِ مَا أَعْلَمُ مَا سَارَ رَاكِبٌ بِلَيْلٍ وَحْدَهُ ‏

Narrated Ibn’ `Umar:
from the Prophet (ﷺ) the following Hadith (No. 242).

Narrated Ibn `Umar:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “If the people knew what I know about traveling alone, then nobody would travel alone at night.”

[Bukhari no.2998]

‎نهى أنْ يَبِيتَ الرَّجُل وحده، أو يُسافِر وحَدَه

He prohibited for a man to sleep alone or to travel alone

[Silsilatus-Saheeha no. 60]

‎ الرَّاكِبُ شَيْطَانٌ وَالرَّاكِبَانِ شَيْطَانَانِ وَالثَّلاَثَةُ رَكْبٌ ‏”‏

A single rider is a devil, and a pair of riders are a pair of devils, but three are a company of riders.

[Saheeh Sunan Abi Dawood no. 2607]

Hafidh Ibn Hajr rahimahullah said:

“It is carried to mean that the time for the permissibility of travelling alone is restricted to a need when it is safe to do so. And the condition of prohibition is restricted to when there is fear and when there is no necessity”

[Fath ul-Bari (7/252)]

Shaikh al-Albani rahimahullah said:

“Perhaps the Hadith means travel in the desert and in wilderness which a traveller rarely sees anyone from the people. The travel nowadays on paved roads, which have a lot of transportation, then it does not enter into this [Hadith]. And Allah Knows Best”

[Saheeha (1/132)]

And Allah Knows Best
