Dua to Break Your Fast in Ramadan | Arabic, Transliteration, English

The proper dua to make when breaking your fast during iftar time in Ramadan:

ذَهَبَ الظَّمَأُ ، وَابْتَلَّتِ الْعُرُوقُ ، وَثَبَتَ الأَجْرُ إِنْ شَاءَ اللهُ

dhahabadh-dhama’, wabtillatil ‘urooq, wa thabatal ajru inshaa’Allah

“The thirst is gone, the veins are moistened, and the reward is certain if Allah wills”

The short video above also contains the audio of the dua for breaking the Ramadan fast if you’d like to hear it along with some other interesting gems.

When Should the Dua Be Made?

Many scholars say it’s not restricted to a specific minute, but flexible.  They’ve stated you can make dua right before the adhan, or right after hearing the adhan and breaking your fast. In summary, you can recite the dua before breaking the fast or you can recite the dua after breaking the fast.

The Virtue of Dua When a Fast is Broken – It’s Never Rejected

One of the most valuable acts of worship a person who is fasting can ever do is to make dua to Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He). Note how beautifully Allah has the famous and amazing verse about dua Ch:2 V:186 in-between the verses of fasting Ch: V: 183-187, highlighting its honor and status.

The Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said, “There are three whose dua is not rejected – a just ruler, the fasting person when he breaks his fast, and the prayer of the oppressed person. It rises above the clouds and the gates of heaven are opened for it, and the Lord, may He be glorified, says, ‘By My Glory, I will answer you even if it is after a while.’”

Allah greatly appreciates when you make dua at such a difficult time, the pinnacle of your hunger. Rather than being diverted by the sight of food, you made dua to Allah when breaking your fast.

Knowing this, make dua during your days of fasting fervently and don’t waste that valuable guaranteed moment where your dua is not rejected by losing focus at the sight of food – put aside a few minutes to praise Allah, asking Him for all your needs.

Share this post with your friends and family to maximize the benefit.

May Allah bless you, Ameen.

    Hadith
    Narrated ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab: I heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) saying, “The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration was for what he emigrated for.”

    حَدَّثَنَا الْحُمَيْدِيُّ عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ الزُّبَيْرِ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ سَعِيدٍ الأَنْصَارِيُّ، قَالَ أَخْبَرَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ التَّيْمِيُّ، أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ عَلْقَمَةَ بْنَ وَقَّاصٍ اللَّيْثِيَّ، يَقُولُ سَمِعْتُ عُمَرَ بْنَ الْخَطَّابِ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ عَلَى الْمِنْبَرِ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ ‏ “‏ إِنَّمَا الأَعْمَالُ بِالنِّيَّاتِ، وَإِنَّمَا لِكُلِّ امْرِئٍ مَا نَوَى، فَمَنْ كَانَتْ هِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى دُنْيَا يُصِيبُهَا أَوْ إِلَى امْرَأَةٍ يَنْكِحُهَا فَهِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى مَا هَاجَرَ إِلَيْهِ ‏”‏‏.‏
