Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I want to know if I am considered as a mussafir or not. I went for umrah on the 19th December 2015 and returned on the 2nd January 2016. During my time in umrah I was in Makkah for three days, Madinah three days and in yanbu al bahr for 7 days. So please can you tell me if I am considered Musafir or not?
