Dua for Iftar
When breaking the fast – Iftar
اللَّهُمَّ اِنِّى لَكَ صُمْتُ وَبِكَ امنْتُ [وَعَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْتُ] وَعَلَى رِزْقِكَ اَفْطَرْتُ
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.
[“wa ‘alayka tawakkaltu” is quoted in some books of knowledge – but not all, hence it is in brackets]
Allahumma Inni laka sumtu wa bika amantu [wa alayka tawakkalto] wa ‘ala rizqika aftartu

i love dis site.all duas and dere meaning mesmerises me.
this dua is not a week …………………. this is not a true dua the true dua is u say bismillah and after finished ur iftar say ………………..
zahabaz zamahu wabtalatil urukhu vasabatil aajru inshallahu….. this is a authentic dua
Wa Alaykum Salam
Not exactly clear what you mean Slave of Allah but the reference to Sunan Abu Dawud for this dua is clearly given below the translation.
Salam to all Muslim worldwide.
It is a rear blessing from Allah(SWT) to experience another fast in this holy month of Ramadan.
May Allah(SWT) accept our fast as sincere act of ibadah.(Amin)
Brother ‘Slave of Allah’ and Ahmed, I think this is not the period to debate over duas been authentic or not.
A lot of Muslims are not even aware of these duas. Yet they fast earnestly to Allah(SWT).
The bottom line is for us to observe our fast with strict adherence to sharia.
Assalamu Alaikum Brothers and sisters. Alhamdulilah for God has takin us through the end of Ramadan may he accept all our Ibadat and forgive our mistakes. Amin
All muslims were proud of you for this kind work
asalaamualaikum waar roh ma tulahi waa barakatu. i will do ramadan and i will not break my fast. insha allah. i hope all fellow muslim brothers and sisters do too. watch this video and oh fellow muslims i hope that you will fear allah and the hell and why allah? Because allah has the most powers and allah decides to take us to jannah or the hell fire! so type this in on youtube: The Day Of Judgement – by Muhammad Abdul Jabbar (Full Lecture) and a really good lecture will come!

As salaam o aleikum,
Dear Friends, Can any body explain that, Dua for Iftaar which is mentioned above, What is the exact and actual time for reading it? Before breaking fast or after breaking fast at completion of Iftaar?
Waiting for reply to correct my self in Islam.
when u listen adaan of magrib u have to recite the dua and break u r fast
Thank you so much Zahir Bhai.
But in my nearest masjid they break, fast with Bismillah, after iftaar they recite dua. Is it correct?
Mashaallah I never knew the meaning until today.
Ya Allah alhumdulliah for everything and please save us from the fire of hell. Ameen

Ajer means reward, as far as I am aware.

Alhumdolillah really very nice
Be cautious: dear brothers and sisters in Islam, there exists two Dua’s in the Internet. The one is very very popular, but weak. And the other is not popular, but strong. So please brothers and sisters, use the strong one! Admin.
Popular, but weak Hadith:
Allah Humma inni Laka Soom-Tu wah Bikka aa-Mantu [wa-Ilayka Tawak’ Kalto], Wah Ala Rizke-Ka Af-Tar-tu Fahtaqab al-Minnee [Oh Allah I
have fasted for You, believed in You, relied on You, and with your sustenance i break it. Therefore forgive me my past and future sins.]
Notice: [“wa ‘alayka tawakkaltu” is quoted in some books of knowledge – but not all, hence it is in brackets]
Why is this Hadith weak? This Hadith (“Allahumma inni laka sumtu wa bika aamantu [wa ‘alayka tawakkaltu] wa ‘ala rizq-ika aftarthu”)
which is found in the Sunan Of Abu Dawud (2358) on the authority of Mu’aath ibn Zuhra. And the Hadith is Mursal which means that there
is a missing link between Mu’aath ibn Zuhra and the Prophet (Sallalahu alaihi wasallam) as he did not meet
the Prophet (sallalaahu alaihi wasallam) i.e. so the report is weak.
Strong Hadith, but not very popular like the above one:
dhahabadh-dhama’u wab-tallatil ‘uruuqi, wa thabatal arju inshaAllah
“The thirst is gone, the veins are moistened and the reward is confirmed, if Allah [Ta’ala] Wills” [Abu Dawud 2:306]
A very happy ramzaan2013 to all my muslim brothers and sisters
ramzaan is the best mnth in whole year for muslim… plzz care of ur islam….
