Prayers of a traveler (Musafir)

 

A traveler should reduce the Rak’ats in Zuhr, ‘Asr and ‘Isha prayers, that is, he should perform two Rak’ats instead of four, subject to the following eight conditions:

The first condition – That his journey should not be less than 8 Farsakh. A Farsakh in Shariah is 12000 Ziraa’ (it’s a unit of measuring the length), and it is mentioned that it is approximately 51/2 (5.5) kilometers. (So, 8 Farsakh is approx. 44 km)

1281. If the total of outward journey and return journey is 8 Farsakh, if the single journey either way is more than 4 Farsakh, he should shorten his prayers. And if his outward journey is 3 Farsakh, and his return is 5 Farsakh, or if his outward journey is 5 Farsakh, and his return is 3 Farsakh, he should offer his prayer completely, that is, four Rak’ats. However, as per precautionary measures, like, if his outward journey is 3 Farsakh, and his return is 5 Farsakh, he should offer both shortened and complete prayers.

1282. If the outward and return journey both is over 4 Farsakh, the traveler should shorten his prayers, and should also break his fast, even if he does not return on the same day or night. However, as per precautionary measures, if he does not return on the same day or night, he should also offer complete prayers.

1283. If a journey is little less than 8 Farsakh or if a person does not know whether or not his journey is 8 Farsakh, he should not shorten his prayers. If he doubts whether or not his journey is 8 Farsakh, and investigating the issue is not easily possible, he should offer complete prayers. And if he can easily investigate, then as per obligatory precaution, he should investigate, like if two just (‘Aadil) people inform him or it is famous among the people that his traveled distance is 8 Farsakh, he should shorten his prayer.

1284. If one ‘Aadil person tells a traveler that the distance covered in his journey equals 8 Farsakh, he should shorten his prayers and offer it completely, and should keep his fast and later should give its Qadha too.

1285. If a person is certain that his journey equaled 8 Farsakh, and he shortened his prayers, and learnt later that it was not 8 Farsakh, he should offer four Rak’ats of prayers, and if the time for the prayers has lapsed, he should perform its Qadha.

 

1286. If a person is sure that his journey is not of 8 Farsakh, or if he doubts whether or not it is of 8 Farsakh , if he realizes on his way or when he reaches there that the distance of his journey had been 8 Farsakh, he should offer shortened prayers. If he has offered complete prayers, he should offer it again in the shortened form.

1287. If a person frequents between two places which are less than 4 Farsakh apart, he should offer complete prayers, even if the total distance covered by him may add up to 8 Farsakh.

1288. If two roads lead to a place, one of them less than 8 Farsakh away, and the other 8 Farsakh or more, the traveler will offer shortened prayers if he travels by the road which is 8 Farsakh away, and complete prayers if he travels by the road which is less than 8 Farsakh away.

1289. If the city has got a boundary, then he should calculate the beginning of 8 Farsakh should be calculated from there beyond, and if it does not have a boundary, then it will be calculated from the end of locality.

The second condition – That the traveler should intend at the time of the commencement of the journey, to cover a distance of 8 Farsakh. If he travels up to a point which is less than 8 Farsakh away, and after reaching there decides to go further, and the two distances, when combined total 8 Farsakh, since he did not had the intention of traveling 8 Farsakh from the beginning, he should offer full prayers. But if he decides to travel further 8 Farsakh from there, or to go to a distance of 4 Farsakh and then to cover another 4 Farsakh to return home, he should shorten his prayers.

1290. A person who does not know how many Farsakh his journey would be, like, if he travels in search of someone not knowing how far he will have to go, should offer full prayers. But, if the return journey to his home, or up to a place where he intends staying for 10 days, is 8 Farsakh or more, he should offer shortened prayers. Moreover, if he makes a Niyyat, during the journey, that he will travel 4 Farsakh and again return covering 4 Farsakh, he should shorten his prayers.

1291. A traveler should offer shortened prayers only when he is firmly determined to travel 8 Farsakh. Hence, if a person goes outside the city thinking that he would cover 8 Farsakh if he finds a companion, he will offer shortened prayers only if he is sure that he will find a companion. And if he is not sure to find one, he should pray full.

1295. If a person who is under the control of another person while on a journey, feels that he would separate from that person before reaching 4 Farsakh, he should offer full prayers. But if he feels sure that he would not separate, at the same time having a faint presentiment that an impediment might occur in the journey, he should offer shortened prayers.

The third condition – That the traveler should not change his mind while on his way. If he changes his mind, or is undecided before covering 4 Farsakh, he should offer full prayers.

1296. If after covering a distance of 4 Farsakh, the traveler abandons the journey, and if he decides to remain at that place, or to return after 10 days, or is undecided about returning or staying there, he should offer full prayers.

1297. If a person abandons the journey after reaching 4 Farsakh and decides that he will return from that place before 10 days, he should offer shortened prayers.

1298. If a person commences his journey to go to a place which is at a distance of 8 Farsakh, and after covering a part of the journey, decides to go elsewhere, and if the distance between the places from where he started his journey, up to the new place, is 8 Farsakh, he should shorten his prayers.

1299. If a person, before reaching 8 Farsakh, becomes undecided about proceeding further, and if he stops his journey, if he has already covered more than 4 Farsakh

 

and decided to return to his place before 10 days, he should offer shortened prayers till the end of his journey.

1301. If before covering a distance of 8 Farsakh a, traveler becomes undecided whether he should complete the journey or not, and in the same state of indecision continues travelling and decides later to do so, if his remaining journey is more than 8 Farsakh, he should offer shortened prayers. And if the distance covered before becoming undecided and distance covered after deciding to continue the journey is less than 8 Farsakh, as per obligatory precaution, he should offer both shortened and full prayers.

The fourth condition – That the traveler does not intend to pass through his home town or to stay at some place for 10 days or more, before he reaches a distance of 8 Farsakh.

And while returning from there and if he has an intention of travelling 8 Farsakh, he should offer shortened prayer. And if he does not have an intention of 8 Farsakh, he should offer full prayers. Hence, like, religious scholars who go to a place for Tabligh (preaching), if after making an intention for staying at a place for 10 days and offering one 4 Rak’at prayers, get invited to a place which is less than 4 Farsakh, and want to travel between the two places for ten days or a month, they should offer full prayers in both places, except if they have to begin a fresh journey, like, on the last day one wants to return to his homeland from the second place, and in this situation after passing

1360. If a traveler who has decided to stay at a place for ten days, wishes, after offering Namaz of four Rak’ats, to go to a place which is less than 4 Farsakh away, and is undecided about returning to his first place, or is totally unmindful about it, or he wishes to return, but is uncertain about staying for ten days, or is totally unmindful of staying there for ten days, or travelling from there, he should from the time of his going till returning, and after his return offer full prayers.

1361. If a person decides to stay at a place for ten days, under the impression that his companions wish to stay there for ten days, and after offering Namaz of four Rak’ats, he learns that they have made no such decision, he should offer full prayers as long as he is there, even if he himself gives up the idea of remaining there.

1362. If a traveler after covering the distance of 8 Farsakh stays at a place unexpectedly for thirty days, like, if he remained undecided throughout those thirty days, whether he should stay there or not, he should offer full prayers after thirty days, even it be for a short period. Similarly, if one becomes undecided, whether he should stay there or not, or to continue his journey, before reaching the distance of 8 Farsakh, he should offer his prayers full. But if he becomes undecided, whether to continue the journey or return to his home, if he has traveled 4 Farsakh outward, he should shorten his prayers and if he has traveled less than 4 Farsakh, he should offer full prayers.
