Question:I’m a university student and I had a question regarding my prayer.
I’m currently living at home and commute to university 5 days a week by car. However, my university is 27 miles away (one way) from my home. And I leave my house everyday before dhuhr (~8-10am) and return from university ~6pm on most days. This means I end up spending more time at university than I do at home.

Since I have to perform my dhuhr and Asr prayer at university, could you please let me know what the ruling is regarding my prayers. Would I have to shorten my Dhuhr and Asr prayer every day? Or would I perform them normally?
Additionally, I would also be travelling every day during Ramadan. Would I be able to fast normally?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: If you will be going to university for at least 6 months in a year then you should observe full prayers whilst you’re there, and you can fast whilst traveling there as well
