Is it permissible to offer Duha prayer during working hours?


Is it permissible for me to offer Duha prayer, which is Sunnah, during official working hours? Please note that that will not lead to any pause or delay in work.


Praise be to Allah.

Duha prayer is Sunnah, and there is great virtue in it. If you are employed and offering this prayer will not affect your work for which you are responsible, there is nothing wrong with offering this prayer. But if doing that will have an impact on your work, then it is not permissible for you to do that, because it is distracting you from carrying out your duties at work.
