I live in Sagamu and work in Lagos both in Nigeria but two different cities, about 35 – 40 km apart. I commune on daily basis. Am I entitled to observe qasr while at work on daily basis of my work like?
Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,
In order to pray Qasr, you need to travel a distance of 78 km after you leave the boundries of your city.
Since the place that you work at is only 35 – 40 km, you need to pray in full.
And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
