Shortening Maghrib Salah

Q 3: A man works away from his house at a distance that allows shortening Salah (Prayer). Is it permissible for him to shorten the Salah whenever he is on his way from work to his home bearing in mind that he intended from the very beginning (Part No. 8; Page No. 95) to stay in this place for approximately one month?

A: He is permitted to shorten and combine the Salah on his way as long as the distance between his work place and home is the distance that allows a Muslim to do so. If he intends to reside in his work place for one month, he is not allowed to benefit from the Rukhsahs (concessions) of traveling while he is in his work place. Rather, he should perform every Salah completely at its due time.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
