Qasr Prayer

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Fatwaa.com

I live in Sagamu and work in Lagos both in Nigeria but two different cities, about 35 – 40 km apart. I commune on daily basis. Am I entitled to observe qasr while at work on daily basis of my work like?

Answer

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

In order to pray Qasr, you need to travel a distance of 78 km after you leave the boundries of your city.

Since the place that you work at is only 35 – 40 km, you need to pray in full.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best

Wassalaam,

Ismail Moosa (Mufti)
