When is one classed as a traveller and should be perform Witr, Sunnah’s as a traveller


Asslamu-alaykum shaykh,

When you are travelling, do we need to pray sunnats (muakaddah) and Witr?

How many miles/km and days is it when you are classed as a traveller?

Jazakallah, may Allah reward you abundantly… Ameen.

Please include me in your duas.


  1. Yes, we should pray witr under all circumstances. Sunnats should be prayed when in calm situations if on a journey, or in a rush they could be left out.
  2. 48 miles/77km – less than 15 days according to the Hanafi madhhab, less than 4 days according to the Shafiee madhhab.
