Qasr Salaah and Comfort

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: Can you perform qasr salaah when on holiday at a holiday house with all comforts available?

A: Qasr Salaah is a gift from Allah Ta’aala to this Ummat, and a Divine gift should not be refused. The criterion for Qasr Salaah is the distance being travelled and the duration of stay at the temporary venue. One who travels 77.7 km and will stay at one place for 14 days or less, qualifies as a Musaafir. The comforts of the venue have no part to play in this criterion. Thus, if the criterion is fulfilled, Qasr Salaah will be compulsory, notwithstanding the comforts available at the holiday house, etc.
