Dua after breaking fast in Ramadan

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim; Dua after breaking fast in Ramadan: The fasting person should make more dua while fasting before breaking the fast. Because, while fasting, the supplication of the fasting person is granted to Allah.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said that the prayers of three people are not ignored (but accepted); Dua of father, dua of fasting, and dua of traveler.

Silsila Sahiha Hadith No. 1897

Iftar dua

On the other hand, the fact that dua is accepted during iftar is not proved by pure narration. Whatever is narrated in this regard is Zayef. It is not permissible to raise one’s hand alone or in a congregation during Iftar. This is because the descriptions of this period do not match the teachings of the Prophet (peace be upon him) or his Companions. Therefore beware of fasting. The dua that is commonly recited while eating and drinking at this place are as follows:

1. Saying Bismillah before eating and drinking

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) commanded that. 

Bukhari 538, Muslim 2022

And he also said that if he does not say so, Satan participates in the meal with the eater. 

Once when a girl and a Bedouin wanted to start eating without saying ‘Bismillah’, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) took them by the hand and said that Shaytaan had incited them to eat in this way and that Shaytaan’s hand was holding his hand. In fact, Satan wanted to eat with them.

Muslim 2018, Adabul Mufrad 36

2. If you forget to say ‘Bismillah’ at the beginning of the meal and remember to eat, you have to say, 

Pronunciation: -Bismilla-hi auwalahu a a-khirah. Meaning: I am eating in the name of Allah at the beginning and at the end. 

Adabul Mufrad 36, dated 1857, dated 3264 Ig: 1985

3. When you finish eating, you have to say ‘Alhamdulillah’

Since the servant praises Allah after eating or drinking something, he likes it. 

Muslim 2634, AH 3/100, 116, AH 1817

Dua after iftar

And the dua that is proven during iftar is to be recited after iftar. Narrated Ibn ‘Umar: When the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) broke his fast, he would say:

ذھب الظماء واتلت الغوق وثبت ألأجر شان شاء الله.

Pronunciation: -Jahaba Jama-U Abtallatil Uruku Asabatal Azru Insha-Allah.

Meaning: Thirst is removed, veins and veins are refreshed and thawab is established inshaAllah. 

Ginger: 2356, Saada: 207

This prayer is most authentically narrated by the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) during Iftaar. Apart from this, other duas of Iftar (Laka Sumatu, etc.) are not proven to be pure.

May Allah Ta’ala grant us the Tawfiq to understand and act on those matters properly. Allahumma Amin.
