Duha is an optional Prayer that was performed by the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) between sunrise and noon. Sheikh Sayyed Sabiq states in his well-known book, Fiqh us-Sunnah: The time for duha begins when the sun is about a spear’s length above the horizon and it continues until the sun reaches its meridian. It is preferred to delay it until the sun has risen high and the day has become hot. Zayd ibn Arqam relates: “The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) went to the people of Quba’, and they were performing Duha, and he said: ‘The Prayer of devotion should be observed when the young weaned camels feel the heat of the sun’” (Ahmad, Muslim, and At-Tirmidhi).
