Question:

I am a student here in the US. I have no intention of staying here
permanently, and still consider Tehran to be my hometown. I live about 100
miles away from my mother, and I visit her every weekend. I do not own the
house I live in, and neither does she. I will be studying at the same school
for the next two years. Do I have to shorten my prayers at my own home, my
mother's home, both, or neither? I was not able to extract the answer from
the risala. 

Please answer according to Ayatullah Khu'i, Sistani, or Rohani.

Answer:

Since you will be living at your place of study for 2 years, you will pray
full prayers. However, when you visit your mother, you must pray shortened
(Qasr) prayers.

(Ref: Ayatullah Seestani, Islamic Acts Masail 1315)
