Title: Until when will i be regarded as a Musafir?


 If I leave home & travel to a place 160km's away and stay for 2 nights there, then go to a place 30km's away from my home and stay there for 5 nights, then finally returning home, until when am I considered a musafir?


In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

You will be a musaafir until you reach the boundary of your home town.

And Allah knows best
