Extending the intention of ones travel during ones journey to more than 15 days

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by TheMufti.com

Q. If a man went on journey and made intention to stay at a place for 10 days but on the 7 day, he made an intention to stay for 10 more days, 10+10=20, does he read full Salaah or short Salaah?


A. In the enquired situation, if after undertaking a journey of 78kms or more, a person makes an intention to stay at a destination for 10 days and then subsequently, on the 7th day, he changes his intention to stay for 10 more days (in total 20 days), he will still be considered a Shari’ traveller (Musaafir) and he will perform Qasr (short) Salaah.

This is because he did not make an intention to travel for 15 days or more at any time. i.e. his first intention to stay at his destination was 10 days and his second intention was to stay at his destination for 13 days.
