Obligatory & Friday Prayers In My Case



I travel to my university from my home which is 135 km away from my home. I go daily and come back home covering about 270 km daily approximately 166 miles. I travel 5 days a week except weekends. What about my namaz. I will offer qasr or complete prayers and do i have to offer Friday prayers aswell??


Salaam Alaykum.

You would be regarded as a frequent traveler, so full prayers and fasting applies when obligatory. If conditions of Friday prayers are fulfilled, like presence of 5 people, sermon is given, conditions of person leading Friday prayers are fulfilled….you have the choice of reciting Friday prayer instead of salaat dhuhr with intention of obligation (wajib e takhyeeri)
