Ka`b bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) reported
: Whenever the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) returned
from a journey, he would proceed straight to the mosque and perform two Rak`ah of (optional) prayer.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
The performance of two Rak`ah of optional prayer is an expression of gratitude to Allah for the safe
return. Naturally, one feels happy on such an occasion.
