Shortening Salah when returning from a travel

Q: If was traveling back home and I intended to combine Zhuhr (Noon) and `Asr (Afternoon) prayers at the time of the latter on my arrival. Is it permissible for me to shorten the two Salahs (Prayers)?

A: When a traveler reaches their town, it becomes impermissible for them to shorten the Salah (Prayer) for their state of traveling ends once they enter their town. The same applies if the time of Salah starts before a traveler reaches their town. This is because the ruling in question is based on the traveler's condition at the time they are to perform Salah not at the time when Salah is due.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
