Qasr when in Mina

Answered by: Maulana Nabil Khan​

Question

We arrived in Makkah just after midnight on 29/7 (we are here for 7 days. We go to aziziya on 4th August then Mina for 5 days of hajj. And then back to Aziziya after hajj till the 17th of August. Are we praying qasr or full namaz?

I. E. :

28/7 – 5/8  in makkah

5/8 – 9/8  in aziziya

9/8 – 14/8  in Mina/muz/Arafat

14/8 – 17/8  in aziziya After hajj

Are we doing qasr in makkah or full?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful 

Answer

In such a case on Hajj when one intends to stay over 15 days within the designated places of Hajj there will be Qasr. This is because arriving in Makkah for Hajj although he is intending to stay there for over 15 days the intention will be contrary to the reality, since apart of hajj will consist of necessary travel to the places you have mentioned, such as Aziziya, Mina, Arafah, and more. Due to this reality, the intention of the pilgrim will not remove the status of travelling from them and they will be performing prayer as a traveller.

وَلَوْ نَوَى الْإِقَامَةَ خَمْسَةَ عَشَرَ يَوْمًا فِي مَوْضِعَيْنِ فَإِنْ كَانَ كُلٌّ مِنْهُمَا أَصْلًا بِنَفْسِهِ نَحْوَ مَكَّةَ وَمِنًى وَالْكُوفَةِ وَالْحِيرَةِ لَا يَصِيرُ مُقِيمًا وَإِنْ كَانَ أَحَدُهُمَا تَبَعًا لِلْآخَرِ حَتَّى تَجِبَ الْجُمُعَةُ عَلَى سُكَّانِهِ يَصِيرُ مُقِيمًا.
