When does the time of Ishraq prayer start?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
_ The time of Ishraq prayer begins some time after sunrise when the sun becomes so bright that it is difficult to look at it for some time. How long after sunrise does this happen? This will vary from place to place and from season to season. The time of Ishraq prayer ends when the sun reaches its zenith (i.e. when the time of Zuhr prayer starts). However, it is better to perform Ishraq prayer at its early time. (Ahsanul Fatawa: 3/467)
And Allah knows best.
