Prayed full prayers while travelling
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 verses 101
101 When ye travel through the earth there is no blame on you if ye shorten your prayers.
Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, to make the observance of the deen easy, the Lord Most Merciful has permitted the believers, men and women, to shorten their prayers when they are on travel as stated in the above Verse of Surah Nisaa.
Thus if you are not a resident of the City of Madinah, and you offered the qasr or shortened Isha prayers by yourself, or you led the congregation as the imaam in Madinah, there is absolutely no harm and your prayer would be valid and acceptable to Allah Subhanah, Insha Allah.
But if you joined a congregation led by a resident imaam of Madinah, then you should offer the full prayers behind the resident imaam who leads the congregation.
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.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
