Qasr At The Airport

Contemporary Fatawa, Fiqh

Q. We know that the Shariah has allowed us a concession of performing two Rak’ah of salah in place of four when on travel. The concession is known as ‘Qasr’. The question is exact when should we start “Qasr” after leaving our home? Sometimes we have to perform prayer at the airport of our city. Can we avail of the Qasr concession when praying at our airport or on our way to airport?
