salaam alaikum can someone tell more more about this salat and how to preform it
I hope the following helps dear sister.
One of the optional prayers is Salatul Doha. It is a Sunnah Mu’akkadah (supererogatory). The Beloved Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam persisted in performing it, approved it, and highlighted its merits to the people. My dear brother, do you pray Salatul Doha? I believe you are a virtuous person, yet I do not justify anybody before Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala.
Its time is from twenty minutes after the sunrise till twenty minutes before Salatul Zuhr (noon prayer).
The Beloved Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam said, "In the morning, charity is due on every joint of the body of every one of you. Every utterance of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala's Glorification (i.e., saying Subhan Allah) is an act of charity, every utterance of His Praise (i.e., saying Al-hamdu lillah) is an act of charity, every utterance of declaration of His Greatness (i.e., saying La ilaha ill Allah) is an act of charity, and every utterance of declaration of His Power (i.e. saying Allah Akbar); and enjoining M`aruf (good) is an act of charity, and forbidding Munkar (evil) is an act of charity, and two Rak`ats of Doha Prayers which one performs in the Forenoon is equal to all this (in reward).''
The number of the joint (the phalanxes) in every one’s body is nearly 360 joints. Let us, my dear brother, give the due charity on every joint bone of our bodies, for each utterance of “Subhana Allah”, “Al-hamdu lillah”, “La ilaha ill Allah”, “Allah Akbar”, as well as enjoining good, and forbidding evil.
Oh Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, who can do this! Thanks to Allah for Salatul Doha: for performing it makes us rich!
Abu Hurayra Radi Allahu anhu said, "My Dear One Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam enjoined me with three: to sleep having performed the Witr prayer; to observe two Rak`ats of Doha, as it is the prayer of the righteous believers; and to fast three days every month."
The opposite of “righteous” is “oblivious”. Thus, my dear brother, be righteous by performing Salatul Doha.
The number of its Rak`ats
It is a minimum of two Rak`ats and a maximum of eight.
Um Hani Said, “The Beloved Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam performed eight Rak`ats of Doha prayer with a Tasleema (the action of ending a prayer) after each two Rak`ats.”
