Hadith on Travel: Quickly return to your family after a journey

Abu Huraira reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Travel is a piece of torment. It prevents one of you from eating, drinking, and sleeping. When he has finished his purpose, let him hasten back to his family.”
