The Correct Du’aa (Supplication) When Breaking Your Fast

Assalamwalikhum (peace be upon you)

Alhamdulilah (thanks to Allah), we have reached another blessed month of Ramadan. On many of our Ramadan timetables there is a du’aa that has been passed around for years as the correct du’aa to break your fast. I have recited it for years, you have and so have many of our family members and friends. The du’aa, “Allahumma inni laka sumtu wa bika aamantu wa ‘ala rizq-ika aftarthu” (O Allah! I fasted for You and I believe in You and I break my fast with Your sustenance). Did you know this hadith is weak? Yes, the du’aa printed on Ramadan timetables every year, that we recite is actually from a hadith that is weak, which has been graded weak by Sheikh Al-Albaani (may Allah have mercy upon him). I bet you didn’t know there is another du’aa that you recite and you’ve probably never come across before and this du’aa is authentic! The correct du’aa to recite is: Dhahaba al-zama’ wa abtalat al-‘urooq wa thabata al-ajr in sha Allaah (Thirst is gone, the veins are moistened and the reward is certain if Allaah wills).” [Abu Dawood]

May Allah make this Ramadan easy for us and keep us on the straight path
