Traveler’s rulings in big cities

Q: What is your opinion concerning large cities with respect to the conditions of the intention of making them a waṭan or of staying there for ten days?
A: There is no difference between a large city and an ordinary one in respect of the traveler’s rules and the intention to make a waṭan or to stay for ten days. On making the intention to take a large city as one’s waṭan and staying in that city for a period without specifying any particular area, the waṭan’s rule will apply to the whole city. Similarly, if one makes the intention to stay in such a city for ten days without specifying any particular area of it, his prayer will be full and his fasting will be valid.
