Watn-e-asli

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I moved to a city for studies (a 7 year program) but never made the intention to move there permanently. During the course of the studies I got married in the city. From then on I considered the city to be my (second) Watan al-Asli, since I thought that it automatically became my Watan al-Asli since it is my wife’s Watan al-Asli, although I still had the intention to move back to my original home after the end of my studies (together with my wife). Is this correct? I.e. is it my Watan Asli due to it being my wife’s watan asli, or is it not since I never intended to settle neither myself nor my wife there? If so, will it still be my wife’s watan al-asli even though she intends to move away with me from the city after I finished my studies?

Bismillaah

A: If your wife has not given up her residence from her town and you are living with her in her town then this can be the watne asli for both of you.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

Q: If my wife visits my original watan al-asli together with me, should she also perform the full salah, even though she has not yet moved there?

Bismillaah

A: If you have not given up your residence in your watne asli then it still remains your watne asli. Your wife being your dependant will complete her namaaz as well.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
