Assalmu Alaykum Please let me know when chast Namaz start and end time and how many Rakat.


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

The chasht prayer (also known as the Salat-ud-Duha and the Salat-al-Awwabeen) begins when the sun is about a spear's length above the horizon and it continues until the sun reaches its meridian (at noon). It is preferred to delay it until the sun has risen high and the day has become hot.

The minimum number of Rakah to be prayed is two, The most that the Prophet (PBUH) performed was eight Rakah, whereas, the most he mentioned was twelve Rakah. Some eminent scholars say there is no maximum limit to the number of Rakah that one may perform for duha. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
