Performing qasar salaah while studying safar distance away from home

Q: I am from Peshawar and I am an employee here in Islamabad. I used to come to my office every Monday and go home every Friday. I live here in a hostel for 4 nights every week for the last 1 and half years but I have never stayed for more then 10 days here in my hostel continously. How should I perform my namaaz? Do I have to read qasr or full namaaz? 

A: If the distance between your home town and Islamabad is more than 78 km, then you will perform qasar salaah in Islamabad.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
