Tell your family your whereabouts

If you leave home to go to a place other than you usual work, it is advisable to inform your family where you are going. This information is very useful to have their mind at ease knowing where you are. The great follower, Qatada bin Di’ama Al-Sadousi disapproved of someone going somewhere without telling their family their whereabouts.

Imam Ahmad [Rahimahullah] reported that Qatada [Rahimahullah] narrated that he went with Abo Ma’shar [Rahimahullah] to visit Al-Sha’bi [Rahimahullah]. His family said he was not home. Qatada [Rahimahullah] asked, “Where did he go?” His family said “We don’t know”. Qatada [Rahimahullah] then said, “You mean he does not tell you where he goes?” They said “Yes”. Telling your family where you are lessens their worried besides putting you and them at ease if you were late since they know where you are.
