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
