Reading of sunnat and nafil Salaah during safr

Q: I need to confirm the rules pertaining to the reading of sunnat and nafil Salaah, etc. whilst an individual is a traveller and also while a person is visiting Mecca and Medina for 10 days each. Is there anything wrong if these additional Salaahs is performed whilst being classified as a traveller?

A: There is nothing wrong in performing the sunnat and nafl salaahs.

(ويأتي ) المسافر ( بالسنن ) إن كان ( في حال أمن وقرار وإلا ) بأن كان في خوف وفرار ( لا ) يأتي بها هو المختار لأنه ترك لعذر تجنيس قيل إلا سنة الفجر (الدر المختار 2/131)
