    Title: Namaj E Qasr

    Question: I have confusion for qasr namaz. I stayed at Kolkata but due to work I have to travel most of the times outside Kolkata and I stayed rarely 2-3 days every week at Kolkata. So, at travel place I understand i have to pray qasr salat but what about at Kolkata. As here also I didn't stay for more than 3-4 days every week. And 2ndly my native place is at Dhanbad almost 200 Km from Kolkata. So, if I go to my native place where my parents live for 2-4 days. So, what salat should I pray namaz-e-Qasr or complete namaz. Please clarify my query.

    When you visit your native place i.e. Dhanbad though only for one day or four days, you will offer full salah and do not offer qasr salah there. After you leave Dhanbad you will become musafir. Yes, if you stay in any place for fifteen days then you will become musafir and will offer four rakahs and if you stay there less than fifteen days then you will remain musafir and offer salah with qasr.
