What are the orders for namaz in qasr for me? I am having a home in Deoband but we reside in Sahibabad/Delhi from last 8 years and the home is at rent. And I have to go my home weekly in Sunday, sometimes twice a week. So, I have to know that in my case where the Qasr apply – in Sahibabad/Delhi or at my home Deoband. Please clear my confusion in the light of Quran and Hadith with their tarjuma.

(Fatwa: 609/574/SN=09/1436)

If you have not made Sahibabad/Delhi your permanent residence and you intend not to stay there permanently then you shall offer qasr salah in Delhi except when you intend to stay there for fifteen days continuously. However, you will offer full salah in Deoband.
