I'm visiting my parents home for 9 days but I'm unclear whether it will be Qasr for me. I normally live in California and my parents moved to Illinois about one year ago. The longest I've stayed with my parents at this place is one month. However I've never worked or gone to school or really lived there so I'm hesitant to call it home. Should I be praying Qasr namaz at my parents anyways?


If you live in California and your parents live in Illinois, and you do not take their house as your home, then you should consider your visit as traveling and shorten your prayers.
