Ishraaq and chast salaah

Q: Is ishraaq and chaast salaah the same or we should read both because I am regularly reading ishraaq but chast I read some times. Someone said it is the same, if you read it in the early morning it is ishraaq and if you read it later than it is called chasit. Please explain.


A: There are two opinions with regards to this. However, it is better to read them as two separate namaaz.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
