Qasr salah (15 day calculation)

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

For my last question, I received below response

“If a person remains 15 nights in a place, he becomes a Musaafir. You do not have to work out the hours. Even if the total hours work out to be slightly more than 360 hours (15 days x 24 hours), a person will still be a Musafir if he he only spent 15 nights in that area.”

Can you recheck, if he stays 15 nights will he be musfair or muqeem?

I received different opinions

1. If it is not 360 (24×15) hours we are musafir
2. We should stay overnight for 15 days. I believe overnight ends at fajr


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

If you spend 15 nights, you will be Musaafir, even if the hours are less than 360.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
