It is permissible to return through the
same route by which one goes to the
musalla. Bakr ibn Mubashir says: "I

Prophet to the musalla on 'idul azha

through a specific valley in Medinah
until we came to the place of salah
and prayed with the Messenger of Al-
lah, and then we would return to our
houses through the same valley."

Allah says: "you should complete
the prescribed period and that you
should glorify Allah [i.e., say takbi-
