    (1) Aligarh will not be your native place (watan asli) only due to marriage, but it is necessary that after marriage you settle your wife there permanently. If the matter is not thus, then whenever you visit Aligarh while noting having intenion to stay for fifteen days then you shall perform Qasr salah, while in your native place i.e. Bahraich though you intend to stay less than fifteen days you will have to pray full salah.

    (2) Are you staying in Saudi Arabia with your family or they stay back in India? If they reside in India where they live whether in Aligarh or Bahraich, as well as what is the birth place of your son Bahraich or anywhere else? Explain it then insha-Allah you will be answered.
