Salamun alaykum,

I have referred to the risala of Ayatullah Sistani and also referred to
the previous answers given to related questions.  It is after doing so
that I ask the following question: 


My normal place of residence is in City A which is where my normal place
of work is.  Occasionally I have to travel to different cities for
varying periods of time, never exceeding ten days in a row, and therefore
I pray shortened prayers.  I understand this is the correct method. 

However, recently, I have been asked to go to my company's office in City
B where there is a shortage of staff.  I still reside in City A driving
up to City B every working day (i.e not weekends) and then driving back
every night.  As before, occasionally, I still have to travel to other
cities for a day or so. 

This relocation is temporary, though lasting a few weeks.  I am still a
permanent employee of the City A branch and consider that as my base. 

Do I have to pray shortened prayers when I am in City B during the day?
Do I have to pray shortened prayers when I am travelling to other cities
(neither A nor B) during this temporary relocation? If it was Ramadan,
would I have to/be allowed to fast? 


You have to say complete prayers in city B and fast in the month of Ramadhan
if the recolation lasts for one year or more. Otherwise shorten your
prayers. In other cities you have to say Qasr salat.

God knows the best.
