Q. Does a Musaafir calculate his Safr distance from his house/doorstep or from the time he leaves his city or town?
A. A traveller/Musaafir will calculate the distance of travel/Safr (78 kilometres or more) from the boundary of the city i.e. where the buildings of the town ends and not from his house or doorstep. (Fataawa Mahmoodiyyah 7/476)
