f:1259 -  Missed Salaat in journey - How to make it up > Back
I went to Maharashtra for writing an exam. There I missed Salaat. How should I offer the Qaza Salaat - as a traveler or as a native? Please reply.
For a person who is considered a traveler by the Shariah, it is necessary to offer Salaat as “Qasar” i.e. offer 2 Raka\'at of Fardh Salaat instead of the usual 4 Raka\'at. The Salaat should be made up (i.e. Qaza) in the same order in which it was missed, whether it was missed in a journey or in the home country. Thus, when you were in a journey and you missed Salaat there, you have to offer the Qasar Salaat (i.e. 2 instead of 4) only as Qaza and not the full Salaat. And Allah Most High knows best.
