Qasr prayers are to be done if you travel at least 44KM round-trip (ex 22km going, 22km coming back) OR 44KM one way from your city limits. You can pray qasr or break your fast once you reach “hadd-e tarakkhus — the point of permissibility”. This is defined, in our context, as a point from where you can’t see the last homes of that city. This distance is not fixed because it varies from city to city depending on different urban layouts, terrains, population distribution, and other unique factors.
If you live in the Toronto area, you can use the map below to calculate your travel distance from the GTA border.
