[Q 170] Shortening Prayers During Travel Specific Duration


I was traveling from London to Doha, Doha to Lahore, Lahore to Gujrat, Pakistan. Gujrat is my stay for the next two weeks. I arrived in Gujrat on 6 Nov and will leave on 20 November. Can I shorten my prayers in Gujrat for the whole duration?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب بعون الملك الوهاب اللهم هداية الحق والصواب


In the case of asking, if the said city of Gujarat is not your real homeland( Watan-e-Asli), then it is necessary to shorten it. You cannot offer the full prayer because your 15 days and nights between November 6 and November 20 are not complete.
