    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 317/249/B=1434) Yes, you shall be musafir (traveller), in case you offer salah alone you should offer four rakah salah as 2 ra’kah i.e. you shall do qasr. Yes, if you intend to stay at a place for fourteen days then you shall turn muqim and offer full salah.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
