Musafir or not

Fatwaa ID: 1196

Assalamu aalykum ww

If a person is travelling and they will be in madinah for 5 days and Makkah for 19 days over two different hotels. Do they read qasr salah? In Makkah and madinah or just madinah?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

We take note of the details of your query. You will be musaafir while in Madeenah Munawwarah. You will make qasr of the applicable salaahs if you are performing salaah individually. If you are behind a muqeem imaam, then you will follow the imaam and perform your salaah in full. As for your stay in Makkah Mukarramah for 19 days together, you will perform all your salaahs in full. You will be regarded to be a muqeem.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
