If a resident (Muqeem) became a traveller (Musaafir) after making Masah (wiping) on leather socks during Wudhu, does the Masah made on the leather socks break? 

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by TheMufti.com

Q. If I have made Masah on my leather socks and I am a Muqeem, then before one day and one night passed, I made Safr, do I have to break my Masah on my leather socks and start again or do I continue?


A. Muqeem (resident/non-Shari’ traveller) is permitted to make Masah (wipe) over leather socks during Wudhu for a period of 24 hours (one day and one night).

A Musaafir (Shari’ traveller) is permitted to make Masah (wipe) over leather socks during Wudhu for a period of 72 hours (three days and three nights).

In an event, a Muqeem embarked on a journey whilst wearing and making Masah of his/her leather socks and became a Musaafir before the termination of a 24-hour period, their 24-hour period will be extended to a 72-hour period and there will be no need to discontinue the 24-hour period or start again.
