Qasr salaah

Question ID: 30634

. I would just like some advice please
. I know that when travelling over a given kilometre radius one becomes a musafir if you intend staying at that destination for less than 15 days.
We usually travel overseas to spend time with my mother-in-law but we stay for atleast a month so I resume normal salaah throughout my stay. This time however we are staying for only 2 weeks – do I read normal salaah as I too consider it home or do I read qasr. Also with regard to the same topic, we have applied for the hajj this year but would be leaving from here( Europe) so we were going to leave the kids with family in SA. When we do, we plan to only stay 8 days. It is my home, my house that we will be staying at so do I again read normal salaah or do I read Qasr.

Another question please.
I am married now for alhamdulillah just over 9 years now. We were blessed with a child exactly 9 months after nikah but I was at my parents place after the birth and in our first year or 2 we experienced alot of problems. During one of my husbands visits he had picked up a small quraan which was lying on the table and had thrown it on my feet ( he had just dropped it in anger and it landed on my feet.) I remember becoming angry at that and walking back into the main house (we always sat in a room adjacent to the main house – like and outside room)and immediately putting money into the lillah tin as when we were kids this was what we did if we had to drop our quraan.
I need to know if this was enough or if there is something else that I need to do to repent for the holy quraan falling on my feet. I do not know still whether it has a meaning to someone throwing a quraan on your feet and this is worrying me alot this month especially – i keep thinking about it.

Your mother in laws house is not yours. This in the case stated you will perform Qasr. If you say 'it is my house' then you will perform full.
