Abdur Rahman ibn Yusuf Mangera – Q&A The Number of Miles That Makes One a Traveller

The speaker discusses the definition of miles and the various opinions given by the writing. They mention that the definition of 48 miles is the exact number of days needed to travel comfortably in a person's absence from work. The definition of 16 days of travel is also discussed, with the majority of their opinions stating that it is 51 days.
00:00:03 --> 00:00:06

How many miles can a woman traveled without a Muharram? Is it

00:00:06 --> 00:00:12

14 miles? It's 48. Conventional miles, it's 48 conventional miles.

00:00:13 --> 00:00:15

And although there's a lot of difference of opinion as to the

00:00:15 --> 00:00:18

exact number of miles, and from the traditional scholars, they

00:00:18 --> 00:00:22

were about three different opinions. When I say the 48 miles,

00:00:22 --> 00:00:26

that is the opinion of the scholars of the subcontinent, that

00:00:26 --> 00:00:34

this is what they realized was the this is what they realized was the

00:00:34 --> 00:00:41

distance a person could travel comfortably in three days in the

00:00:41 --> 00:00:45

Indian subcontinent. And that's why I would say that this is

00:00:45 --> 00:00:49

something this it would be, it would be similar here as well. So

00:00:49 --> 00:00:52

essentially, it's what what the show is talking about is three

00:00:52 --> 00:00:56

days of travel, Fela yurman three days of travel, and the travel is

00:00:56 --> 00:00:59

generally from after fajr from the morning to

00:01:00 --> 00:01:06

to just before lunchtime, and then after that it's rest. So we assume

00:01:06 --> 00:01:10

that a person could probably walk quite easily, conveniently 16

00:01:10 --> 00:01:14

miles a day. So 16 times three is 48 miles so that's where they they

00:01:14 --> 00:01:18

get that from. There are other opinions from scholars of other

00:01:18 --> 00:01:24

countries, which also mentioned slightly different opinions,

00:01:24 --> 00:01:28

higher lower levels as well. But at the end of the day, it's it is

00:01:28 --> 00:01:32

an HD high the issue. So 48 Miles is what the majority of scholars

00:01:32 --> 00:01:36

have taken in the Hanafi school. The chef is habit slightly

00:01:36 --> 00:01:40

different I believe this is 51 Miles according to the popular

00:01:40 --> 00:01:41

opinion within the Shafi ease
