Musaafir changing his intention and staying for more than 15 days

Q: My brother is currently in India and had intended to be there for three weeks. His whole time will be spent in Mumbai only and will not travel
anywhere else. He has been there for the past week and has been performing qasr. He realised today that he will be staying for more then 15 days and therefore is not entitled for qasr. What should he do for the salaat of the past week that he performed as qasr whereas he was not supposed to?


A: If he initially intended to stay for less than 15 days, then he was a musaafir for that period. Hence he will not have to repeat the Salaah he had performed.

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