Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
When we encamped, we would not offer (voluntary) prayers
until we had unsaddled our beasts.
[Abu Dawud].
It was the usual practice of the Companions that whenever they halted at some place to take rest
during their journey, they would first of all unload their animals to give them comfort and relaxation. Then, they
would perform voluntary Salat. This Hadith also throws light on the excellence of voluntary Salat in a journey.
