Duas for Suhoor and Iftar

Dua Settings

Ramadan is a glorious test for Muslims where their faith, self-discipline, and self-control are tested. While all of us fast in the way of Allah, we must also remember that Ramadan is about more than simply abstaining from food and water. Muslims must understand the lesson of empathy, taqwa, and subservience to Allah being taught this month. Worshipping Allah in abundance and remembering Him through dhikr and tasbihat must be kept front and center during Ramadan so that we can glean its blessings. The Prophet of Allah, Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ), recited a dua at the time of suhoor and a dua before breaking his fast. Both of these duas are listed below. Recite the duas for suhoor and iftar to keep and break your fast in Ramadan.

Duas for Suhoor and Iftar

Before you start fasting

وَبِصَوْمِ غَدٍ نَّوَيْتُ مِنْ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ

Wa bisawmi ghadinn nawaiytu min shahri ramadan

I intend to keep the fast for tomorrow in the month of Ramadan

After you break your fast

اللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّى لَكَ صُمْتُ وَبِكَ اٰمَنْتُ وَعَليْكَ تَوَكَّلتُ وَ عَلٰى رِزْقِكَ اَفْطَرْتُ

Allahumma inni laka sumtu wa bika aamantu wa alayka tawakkaltu wa ala rizq-ika-aftartu

O Allah! I fasted for You and I believe in You and I put my trust in You and I break my fast with Your sustenance

About the Duas for Suhoor & Iftar

The duas for Suhoor and Iftar are supplications said by Muslims after they eat Suhoor and before they break their fast. Although the recitation of duas for Suhoor and iftar is not obligatory, and one's fast will still be valid if he/she does not recite the duas, recitation of the duas is encouraged.

Firstly, the dua for Suhoor and Iftar reinstate our intention before and after we've fasted. Moreover, remembrance of Allah whenever we begin or complete a blessed activity or task can help us gain infinite rewards and invoke the blessings of Allah.

Dua is also one of the most effective ways for a believer to connect with Allah, repent for one's sins, and ask Him for his divine help and blessings. Reciting the duas for Suhoor and iftar and following the recitation by asking Allah for forgiveness and rewards can also be beneficial for a believer.

Since a believer fasts for Allah and Him alone, it is recommended to start and complete your fast through His remembrance. Indeed, Allah is merciful and forgiving and responds to His servant in need.

Allah also says in the Quran: 'So, therefore, remember Me, and I shall remember you; and give thanks and do not be ungrateful." - (2:159). Allah states that He remembers those who remember him (through dhikr, worship, and prayer). So, no dua made to Allah can ever be futile for a believer and instead will always benefit Him.
