Qasr Salah


If I’m traveling to a distance of 600km and going to stay at the destination for 3 weeks but will, in the middle of my stay,travel to another destination that is about 2 hours away, just for a day and return to my holiday destination., Do I pray qasr salaah?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

In principle, when one travels for 48 miles/78 kilometers, then the rules of a Musaafir (traveller) will apply as soon as he exits the town.

If you have intention of staying lesser than 15 days in the first destination before traveling to the next destination and the next destination is 78 km or more and you stay lesser than 15 days, then Qasr (shorten prayers) will be offered in both places.

If you intend to stay for 15 days at the first place before traveling to the second place then you will be a Muqeem in the first place. You will perform full four Rakaats Salah at the first place.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
