The Virtues of Duha’ Prayer

Understanding Virtue through the Prophetic Teachings (Lessons Fifteen to Seventeen): In this lesson, Shaykh Faraz discusses the Duha’ (mid-morning prayer), its virtues, and how to perform it.

Abu Hurayra (Allah be pleased with him) relates that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “Whoever consistently performs two rakats of Duha, their sins are forgiven, even if like the foam of the sea.” [Ibn Maja (1382) and Tirmidhi (476)]

Nu`aym ibn Hammar (Allah be pleased with him) relates that he heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) say, “Allah Most High says: O child of Adam, don’t fail to perform four rakats in the beginning of your day, and I shall be your sufficiency at its end.” [Abu Dawud (1289) and Tirmidhi (475)]
