Facts About Dhuha Prayers
In the Islamic faith, prayers are seen to be the central part; or rather the backbone of their religion. Every Muslim worldwide attends the prayers that are scheduled at various times in every day. Whether in the morning, noon time or evening, Muslims are expected to attend specific types of prayers which are in turn very significant to their lives. One type of prayer that every Muslim in the world is expected to attend is the Dhuha prayer, which at times it may be referred to as the Duha prayer. This is a kind of prayer that takes place in the morning hours, and it is usually the first prayer of the day in the Muslim religion. Nonetheless, even if this prayer is very important to the lives of Muslims, there are still some who are not well knowledgeable of it. Due to this, here are some of the basic facts about the Dhuha/Duha prayer.
The first fact about Duha is that it is attended on a voluntary basis. To all Muslims, Duha is always voluntary, unlike other prayers that may be seen to be a must. Dhuha is always a choice, or rather a free will as no person can coerce another to attend it. However, due to the fact that the prayer has a lot of impacts in the lives of Muslims, they are always encouraged to take part in it. In the cases where you may be asking yourself if you are coerced to attend the Dhuha prayer, it is important you be informed that only volunteers do attend it.
Also, depending on the time that the prayer is held, the name and purpose is subject to change. Before sunrise, or a few minutes after sunrise is when Dhuha normally takes place. Nonetheless, the time at which the Dhuha is expected to take place may change. At such a time, the prayer changes its name from Dhuha to Ishraaq. On the other hand, when the prayer is used for forgiveness, it is known as the Salat Dhuha.
To end with, there are rewards that Muslims expect from the Dhuha prayer. Just like any other believer who believes that the prayers he/she makes will bring rewards in the long run, so does the Muslims with the Dhuha prayer. Sustenance and wealth are some of the rewards that every Muslim hopes to get whenever they take part in the Dhuha prayer, otherwise known as the Duha prayer. For this reason, many are motivated to take part in the prayer. They believe that after the prayer, they will become wealthy and as well meet their sustenance.
