As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.
1. In principal, a musafir is exempt from the sunnat-e-muakkadah salats. It is advisable for a musafir if time permits that he performs the sunnat-e-muakkadah salats.
2. A person will become a musafir if he undertakes a journey of 78 kms or more. The amount will be calculated from boundary till boundary, not from point A of the journey to point Z of the journey. This is also the ruling of the Jameeatul Mufleen (Board of Muflis) comprising of 12 Darul Iftas.
