Dua for fasting and importance of fasting in islam.


     1. Dua for sehri.


   Sehri or Suhoor is the food that Muslims eat for fasting on the last portion of the night, ie before Fajr, because eating Sehri helps the fasting person to fast and the day passes easily.  Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) has emphasized Sehri in many ahaadeeth. Therefore, in the month of Ramadan, special arrangements are made for Sehri among Muslims.

Every muslim recite this dua at the time when he finish meal or sehri.


 “I intended to fast tomorrow in the month of Ramadan.”

  This supplication is only for the purpose of invoking the intention of fasting, otherwise the intention of the original fast is an act of the heart, ie: if the intention is to fast in the heart, then the fast is sufficient for it to be valid. Even if you want to say, there is no harm in it even according to Shariah.

     2. What to say before fasting?



             “O Allah! I fasted only for you, and I break my fast only on your provision”.

  The first sentence of this prayer emphasizes sincerity in fasting and the second sentence encourages giving thanks for the blessings of sustenance.

     3. Dua for iftar.




         “The thirst is gone, the veins are refreshed, and if Allah wills, the reward will be proved”.

  Namely: The pain of thirst and dryness that he endured all day long has ended as soon as he breaks his fast.

      4. If someone is invited for iftar, then recite this dua there.


        “The fasting people broke their fast with you, and the righteous people ate your food, and the angels prayed for your forgiveness”


  Note: At the time of Iftar, there is a promise of acceptance of supplications from Allah Almighty, so before Iftar, one should offer good prayers for one’s worldly and worldly needs, for one’s parents and relatives, and for the entire Muslim Ummah. 


    Importance of fasting in Islam.

 Fasting is a wonderful act of worship that a person can do all his work by fasting.

 The month of Ramadan is a blessed month and the greatness of this month can be gauged from the fact that the revelation of the Holy Qur’an took place in this holy month. The first ten days of Ramadan are for mercy, the second ten days for forgiveness and the third ten days for salvation from the fire of Hell.

 When the moon of Ramadan appeared, the Prophet (peace be upon him) used to say that this moon is of goodness and blessings. This moon is of goodness and blessings. I believe in the One who created you.

 Hazrat Jibraeel (peace be upon him) prayed that the person who got the month of Ramadan and he could not give his forgiveness should be killed, to which Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) said Amen!

 We should understand the importance of Ramadan with this prayer of Hazrat Jibraeel (peace be upon him) and saying “Amen” by Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him).

 Fasting is a great duty which Allah Almighty has entrusted to Himself and on the Day of Resurrection Allah Almighty will bestow His reward and reward on the fasting person Himself without any intermediary. There is definitely some wisdom in these methods. Prayer is the source to increase relationship with Allah SWT. In prayer the servant speaks directly wiy his true Master. Certainly fasting is one of the means of gaining love from Allah Almighty.

 The hadith states that Ramadan is the month of the Almighty, which shows that this blessed month has a special relationship with Allah SWT, due to which this blessed month is distinguished from other months.

 It is narrated from Hazrat Jabir bin Abdullah (RA) that Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) has said that my ummah was given five things in the month of Ramadan which were not given to any prophet before me.

   1. When the first night of Ramadan starts, the Almighty looks at them with mercy, and the one whom the Almighty looks at with mercy will never be punished.

     2. Secondly, the smell of their mouth in the evening (which is due to hunger) is better in the sight of Allah than the smell of musk.

      3. The third is that the angels keep praying for their forgiveness every night and day.

     4. The fourth is that the Almighty, while commanding Paradise, says, “Be adorned for my (righteous) servants, soon they will find relief from the hardships of this world in my house and grace.

      5. The fifth is that when the last night of the month of Ramadan comes, the Almighty forgives everyone.

     Considering all these virtues of this blessed month of Ramadan, Muslims should make special arrangements for worship in this month and not let any moment go to waste.

 In this blessed month, worship has been made obligatory in such a way that a person can be engaged in all his needs and wants with this worship and can also engage in this very special way of worship, such a special way. The act of worship is called fasting, which is obligatory in this month. The great thing is that even when one is engaged in these activities, the worship of fasting continues to be performed by the fasting person without any hesitation and he gets the reward of engaging in worship.
