Summary of question
What is the time frame in which Dua Ahd should be read in?
When should dua ahd be read? I have read that it should be read in the morning? What does that mean? After dawn? After sunrise? After adhan? What is the time-frame for reading this dua? Is it until dhur prayer?
Concise answer

It has been stated in traditions that whosoever recites this hadith for forty days in the morning, he/she will be one of the companions of Imam Zaman (a.s.) and …[1]. Conclusion: Dua Ahd needs to be read in the morning, and the best time to read it is after the Sabah (morning) prayer. In fiqh, the time between “the true dawn” (adhan of morning prayer) and sunrise is considered the morning, although society considers one to two hours after sunrise as part of the morning as well. Also, these hadiths are apparently saying that this dua must be read in forty consecutive mornings. Of course, reading this dua is originally mustahabb and not wajib.
