Qasr salah in airport

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
I am living in Lucknow. Sometimes I travel by airplane to other cities. Will I offer qasr salah in airport?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 1394/1162/SD=11/1439)


When a person leaves his village or its outskirt then he becomes Shariah musafir. If the airport of Lucknow is adjacent to city then it shall be counted as outskirt and it would be necessary to offer full salah there and if it is not adjacent to the city rather separate then you would offer qasr salah on the airport.


Note: We have come to know that Lucknow airport is adjacent to the city. (d)
