How should a Musaafir calculate if he has to perform full salaah or qasr salaah?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: How can I calculate 15 days during a journey in order to know whether I need to perform qasar Salaah or full salaah. Suppose I reach a destination on 1st Dec 05:30 pm and plan to stay till 15th Dec 05:30 am.

Do I need to to take into account till 15th Dec 5:30 pm (360 hrs) as it is less than 360 I should offer Qasr even though it is 15th day ?


A: If you stay for less than full 15 days, then you will perform qasr salaah.

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