Qasr Salah in Different Cities: My Experience and Confusion

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I am staying in a different city as I am working there but I want to know whether I will offer qasr salah if I go to below cities for less than 15 days

1. City A where I was born and don’t reside now but I have a home which I gave to rent

2. City B, I have flat there but I don’t reside and go once in a month

3.City C, my in laws home.

What should my wife offer here Qasr or full?

Also during Haj we stayed in Makkah for 14 days and on 15th day we left to Mina before Fajr. I offered Qasr Salah but when I came back few mufti’s told you were muqeem. I told them once you reach destination from that time you should calculate 15 days. But they mentioned we need to calculate from our home and also even if we stay for one hour of a day we should count it as one full day. Is this correct? But I told them how you can assume one hour as one full day. Is my understanding correct?


A: You will complete your namaaz in the city that you reside.

What they had told you was incorrect.

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