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

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh

Durban is your primary residence (al-watan al-asli). According to Shariah, one will not be considered a Musafir (traveller) when one enters one’s watan al-asli (primary residence). You will therefore perform your complete Salaah when you are in Durban.[1]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
