Category: Duha Prayer
The Duha prayer (Arabic: صَلَاة الضحى, Salat ad-Duha) is the voluntary Islamic prayer between the obligatory Islamic prayers of Fajr and Dhuhr.
Duha prayer begins after sunrise and ends at meridian, and is generally thought to include at least two raka’ahs, though in some traditions the number is four or even twelve. According to the Sunni thought, performing this prayer is believed to be effective in seeking forgiveness for one’s sins.
Whoever comes out of his house in purification to perform the obligatory prayers, then the reward is like a man performing the Hajj. Whoever goes out to perform the praying dhuha, then rewards like one who carries out Umrah.
