Question

I would like to know what the Fatwa is
regarding combining prayers. I work offshore
and stay there for 1 or 2 months. I am also
not living in my home country.

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

If a person is a navigator and in his journey
he exceeds a distance of what is considered
in the customs of people to be a travel, and
his travel is for a permissible objective, then
he may combine Thuhr and 'Asr and Maghrib
and 'Ishaa' prayers, as he is a traveller and
the ruling of a traveller applies to him. Ibn
'Abbaas, may Allah be pleased with him,
narrated that " The Prophet used to
combine Thuhr and 'Asr, and Maghrib and
'Ishaa' prayers when he is travelling. ''
[Ahmad]
It is also permissible for this navigator to
shorten the prayers as Allah Says (which
means): {And when you travel throughout the
land, there is no blame upon you for
shortening the prayer ,…}[Quran 4:101].
However, when he reaches a town where he
intends to stay for more than four days, he
is then obliged to complete the prayers
according to the view of the majority of
scholars, may Allah have mercy on them.
This is even when he is not in his original
town or country.

Allah Knows best.
