Salaah Dhuhaa (Chaasht)

When the sun rises quite high in the morning, one should offer at least two Rakaats of Salaah. If he wishes, he could offer more. That is, four, eight, or twelve Rakaats. This is known as Chaasht Salaah. There is a lot of reward in offering this Salaah.

‘Aayeshah Radiyallahu ‘Anha reports that whenever Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam could not perform the tahajjud because of some reason. He performed twelve rak’ahs in the day (at the time of chaasht-before midday). [TIRMITHI]
