Ramadhan Thought - 12
Ishraq Prayer is a nafl prayer which is performed about 12 minutes after sunrise.
It has only 2 rakaats but Hadiths are replete with the high merits of this prayer.
Abu Hurairah relates that our Prophet - upon whom be eternal Peace – has said that
"He who says Ishraq prayers without fail shall have his lesser sins forgiven even though they may be as numerous as foam specks on the surface of the sea."
(Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah)
