Qasar Salah In Safr( Travelling )


My question is related to safr.

I was born and raised in Dubai, UAE and my parents are still living in the same house. I have got a job in Alain, which is more than 140km away from Dubai. I have bought an apartment in Alain and stay in that apartment during the week. I travel back to Dubai every weekend, or sometimes even during the week when I have off days. I would like to ask about qasr salah and where will it be necessary for me to pray qasr and where would I have to pray the full salah. Jazak Alla Khair


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.   


Assalāmu ῾alaykum wa Rahmatullāhi Wabarakātu


Dubai is you watan asli, (place of birth). You will perform full salah in Dubai at all times.


If your work place (Alain) is a temporary residence and you intend to stay there for fifteen or more days then you will have to perform the full salah in Alain.


If you intend to stay less than fifteen days in Alain, then you will be a musafir and will make Qasar there.



And Allāh Ta῾āla Knows Best
