From where should one begin counting the safar distance?

Q: Does a person start counting the distance for a musaafir from their suburb or town border because I was told that some ulama say it has changed to suburb?


A: If you are living in a suburb then you will start calculating the distance from the end of the residential area of the suburb.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
