ALBAWABA - Muslims observing the holy month of Ramadan repeat a duaa, or invocation, attributed to the Prophet Muhammad when they break their dawn-to-dusk fast.
The duaa is:
"Thirst is gone, the veins are moistened and the reward is certain, with Allah's will."
"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."
The late Islamic scholar, Imam Muhammad ibn Isa at-Tirmidhi, who relayed sayings by the Prophet, reported that the Prophet said: "Three people will not have their supplications rejected: A fasting person until he breaks his fast, a just ruler, and an oppressed person."
During the time of breaking the fast is one of the best times to make Duaa, as recommended by the Prophet (ﷺ).
However, most Muslims recite following Sehri Duaa or Duaa for Sehri before starting their fast during Ramadan:
"I intend to keep the fast for tomorrow in the month of Ramadan."
Ramadan is the most important month in the Islamic calendar. The annual observance of Ramadan is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam.
It is a duty on all healthy Muslims to fast the 29 or 30 days of Ramadan, the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, which is declared from the moment the crescent of the holy month is sighted.
During Ramadan, Muslims refrain from eating and drinking from sunrise until sunset. It is an excellent time for challenging and strengthening oneself.

Fasting begins pre-sunrise to sunset, lasting anywhere from 12 to 18 hours, depending on the location where Ramadan is observed. In some Western nations during the summer, Ramadan can run to 20 hours a day.
