Question ID: 28069


As a musafir( traveller), is the ogligatory salaah for maghrib 2 or 3 rakaats (fardh)?

I am from Durban, and I commute to Pmb on a weekly basis( ie once a week), but return to Dbn on weekends ( Fri evening, Sat, Sun).Acc to advice, this qualifies as musafir since it is less than 15 days and more than 78kms. is this correct?
What about the weekends that I return, am I still musafir since this is shorter(2days) rather than the rest of the week (5 days)?
I forsee this continuing for at least a year, will I be a musafir for this period or not?

As a Musaafir one will perform 3 Rakaats for Maghrib

When you are in Pmb you are a Musaafir, on returning to Durban you are not a Musaafir
