From which point will one begin calculating the safar distance?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: From what point does a musaafir calculate the start of his journey? For example, I live in London and if I travel to a distant northern city from which point do I become a traveller? The distance from my home to the edge of North London is approx 25 miles. And the distance to the border of my local area is approx 200 feet.

A: You will start counting the distance from the place where the residential area and related matters end up.

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