Are Chast and Ishrak the same thing?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
Assalamualeakum w.w

Having gave bayat to a shaikh, I was told to read Chast and ishrak. Though someone mentioned to me they are both the same, is that correct?

Bismihi Ta’ala

The two are not the same. Ishraq is an optional prayer performed approximately 15 minutes after sunrise where as Chasht (Salat ul-Dhuha in Arabic) is performed mid way between sunrise and noon, but slightly closer to sunrise. For example, if sunrise was 7.30 am and noon 12.30 then Chasht would be performed at 9.30 or 9.45.

And Allah knows best.
