0 458

What are the supplications mentioned in the Sunnah that Muslims should say while breaking the fast and while fasting?

In this fatwa:

You may recite any of the following supplications (duaa) when you break your fast:


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

Allaahumma laka sumtu wa alaa rizqika aftartu


Dhahaba al-ddhama’ wa ibtallati al-‘urooq wa thabata al-ajru in sha’ Allah

In his well-known book, Fiqh As-Sunnah, the late Sheikh Sayyed Sabiq states:

Ibn Majah reported from Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-Aas that Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “A fasting person, upon breaking his fast, has a supplication that will not be rejected.”

When Abdullah broke his fast he would say: “O Allah, I ask of You, by Your mercy that encompasses everything, to forgive me.


It is confirmed that the Prophet would say: “The thirst has gone, the veins become wet and, Allah willing, the reward is confirmed.”

In another (mursal) narration, the Prophet would say: “O Allah, for You I have fasted and with Your provisions do I break my fast.”

At-Tirmidhi reported that the Prophet said: “Three people will not have their supplications rejected: a fasting person until he breaks his fast, a just ruler, and an oppressed person.”

Moreover, Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, A Senior Lecturer and an Islamic Scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, adds:

A Muslim should be keen to follow the Sunnah in all aspects of his life, let alone in acts of worship. While fasting, a Muslim should be constant in making dhikrdoing good deeds, etc.

You may recite any of the following supplications when you break your fast:

Allaahumma laka sumtu wa alaa rizqika aftartu

(O Allah! I fasted for Your sake and I am breaking my fast with the food You have provided).

Dhahaba al-ddhama’ wa ibtallati al-‘urooq wa thabata al-ajru in sha’ Allah

(The thirst is gone and the arteries are supple and wet, and reward is complete by the will of Allah).
