Missed prayers on travel
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verse 103:
Indeed the Salaat is a prescribed duty that should be performed by the believers at (their) appointed times.
Intentionally missing an obligatory prayer beyond its appointed time is not even given as an option in the deen of Islam! The offering of the five obligatory prayers at its appointed times is such a duty unto the Lord Creator that a believer is not permitted to miss them even in a life and death situation like war, or severe illness, etc. If one accidentally or unintentionally misses ones prayer through sleep or forgetfulness, one should pray it as soon as one wakes up or remembers it.
Whoever sleeps through or has forgotten to pray a certain prayer should pray it when he wakes up or remembers the prayer. Abu Qatadah related that sleeping through the prayer time was mentioned to the Prophet (saws) and he said, "There is no negligence in sleep, but negligence occurs while one is awake. If one of you forgets a prayer, or sleeps through its time, then he should pray it when he remembers it."

Anas related that the Prophet (saws) said, "Whoever forgets a prayer should pray it when he remembers it, and there is no expiation for it save that."

Your Question: i was on journey but i miss my whole day namaaz due to some problem. now i want to pray that namaaz, so how i have to offer either the full namaz or just the qasar namaz.
Unless one is a child, or insane, or sleeps through a prayer time, or the Shaytaan makes one completely forget ones prayer.there is absolutely no lawful excuse in Shariah for a believer to miss offering ones obligatory prayers on time.
If for any reason one (Allah forbid) has intentionally missed a whole days prayers, first and foremost they should turn unto their Lord in taubah and seek repentance for their severe negligence.if indeed they are sincere in their repentance, it is expected that they will find their Lord Forgiving and Merciful.
If one has missed their whole days prayers when in the state of travel and one wishes to atone for those missed prayers by offering them qada or belated when one returns to their place of residence, it would be best and preferred that they offer them in a state that they were missed; ie. in the qasr or shortened format.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
