Ruling 1334

With regard to a traveller who has made the intention to stay somewhere for ten days, if after performing a four rakʿah prayer within its prescribed time or after staying there for ten days – even if he has not performed one prayer in tamām form – he wants to go to a place that is less than four farsakhs away and then come back and stay in the first place again for ten days or less, in such a case, he must perform tamām prayers from the time he goes until the time he comes back and after coming back as well. However, if his returning to the place of his residence is only because it is on the way, and if the distance of his journey is eight farsakhs, then it is necessary for him to perform qaṣr prayers while going, returning, and at his place of residence.
