Sunnat Salaah when one is on safr

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: When one is travelling (i.e. a Musaafir), I understand that the Farz of Zuhr, Asr and Esha is reduced to 2 Rakaats. Does one have concession to omit the Sunnat Rakaats, meaning that for Zuhr does one read 4 Sunnat, 2 Farz, 2 Sunnat or should one just read 2 Farz of Zuhr?


A: Yes. As far as possible, complete the sunnats of Fajr. The others you may leave out.

(ويأتي ) المسافر ( بالسنن ) إن كان ( في حال أمن وقرار وإلا ) بأن كان في خوف وفرار ( لا ) يأتي بها هو المختار لأنه ترك لعذر تجنيس قيل إلا سنة الفجر (الدر المختار 2/131)
