RAMADAN DUA's










♥**♥ In the name of Allah; the Most Beneficent; the Most Merciful: ♥**♥

The month of Ramadaan in which was revealed the Quran, a guidance for mankind, and clear proofs of the guidance, and the Criterion (of right and wrong).  And whoever of you is present, let him (or her) fast the month, and whosoever of you is sick or on a journey, (let him or her, fast the same) number of days.  Allah desireth for you ease; He desireth not hardship for you; and (He desireth) that you should complete the period, and that you should magnify Allah for having guided you, and that peradventure ye may be thankful. 


--The Glorious Quran; 2; surah baqarah; 185.

Ramadan Dua's 

during Fasting


The Last Holy Prophet Mohammed (peace & blessing of ALLAH be upon him) said, that ALLAH-the-Almighty said:
○•------------------------------------------------------------------------------------•○
ALL THE DEEDS OF MAN ARE FOR HIMSELF, EXCEPT FASTING,
WHICH IS FOR ME, AND I WILL REWARD IT, MYSELF.
○•------------------------------------------------------------------------------------•○

When beginning the fast- Suhur
وَبِصَوْمِ غَدٍ نَّوَيْتَ مِنْ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ
Wa bisawmi ghadinn nawaiytu min shahri ramadan
I intend to keep the fast for tomorrow in the month of Ramadan
[abu Dawud]




DUA at the time of Breaking the fast- Iftaar
اللَّهُمَّ اِنِّى لَكَ صُمْتُ وَبِكَ امنْتُ [وَعَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْتُ] وَعَلَى رِزْقِكَ اَفْطَرْتُ
Allahumma inni laka sumtu wa bika aamantu [wa 'alayka tawakkaltu] wa ‘ala rizq-ika aftarthu
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]
[abu Dawud]




——————-

ذَهَبَ الظَّمَأُ وَ ابْتَلَّتِ الْعُرُوقُ، وَ ثَبَتَ الأجْرُ إنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ
dhahabadh-dhama’u wab-tallatil ‘urūūqi, wa thabatal arju inshaAllah
The thrist is gone, the veins are moistened and the reward is confirmed, if Allah [Ta'ala] Wills

[abu Dawud 2:306]
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسأَلُكَ بِرَحْمَتِكَ الَّتِي وَسِعَتْ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ أَنْ تَغْفِرَ لِي
Allaahumma inni as’aluka birahmatika al-lati wasi’at kulli shay’in an taghfira li
O Allah, I ask You by Your mercy which envelopes all things, that You forgive me.

[a du'a that Abdullah ibn Amar (radiAllahu anhu) used to say when breaking his fast - as reported by Ibn abi Mulaykah (radiAllahu anhu)]

When someone offers you food when you are fasting and you decline
When you are invited to eat, then reply to the invitation. if you are fasting, then invoke Allah’s blessings (on your host), and if you are not fasting then eat

[Muslim; 2:1054]

Upon reaching month of Rajab and Sha’ban
When the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) sighted the moon of Rajab (two months before Ramadan) he used to pray to Allah in the following words:
اَللّهُمَّ بَارِكْ لَنَا فِى رَجَبَ وَ شَعْبَانَ وَ بَلِّغْنَا رَمَضَان 
Allahumma barik lana fi Rajab wa Sha’ban wa ballighna Ramadan
O Allah! Make the months of Rajab and Sha’ban blessed for us, and let us reach the month of Ramadan (i.e. prolong our life up to Ramadan, so that we may benefit from its merits and blessings)

[Narrated by at-Tabarani and Ahmad]




When you are fasting, and someone is rude to you

اِنَّيْ صَائِمٌ ، اِنِّيْ صَائمٌ
Inni sa’iimu, inni sa’iimu
I am fasting, I am fasting

[Sahih al-Bukhari, Fath al-Bari of Al-Asqalani; 4:1-3, Muslim; 2:806]


Upon Sighting of the new Moon
اللَّهُ اَكْبَرُ ، اَللَّهُمَّ اَهِلَّهُ عَلَيْنَا بِالآَمْنِ وَلاِيمَانِ ، وَالسَّلَامَةِ وَالاِسْلَامِ ، وَالتَّوْفِيقِ لِمَا تُحِبُّ رَبَّنَا وَتَرْضَى ، رَبُّنَا وَرَبُّكَ اللَّهُ
Allahu Akbar. Allahumma ahillahu ‘alayna bil-amni wal-imaani, was-salaamati, wal-Islami, wat-tawfeeqi lima tuhibbu Rabbana wa tardha. Rabbuna wa RabbukAllahu
Allah is the Greatest. O Allah bring us the new moon with security and faith, with peace and in Islam, and in harmony with what our Lord Loves and what pleases Him. Our Lord and your Lord is Allah
[at-Tirmidhi 5:504, ad-Darimi 1:336]
Upon seeing the first dates of the season



اللَّهُمَّ بَارِكْ لَنَا فِي ثَمَرِنَا ، وَ بَارِكْ لَنَا فِي مَدِينَتِنَا وَ بَارِكْ لَنَا فِي صَاعِنَا ، وَبَارِكْ لَنَا فِي مُدِّنَا

Allahumma barik lana fi thamarina, wa barik lana fi madinatina, wa barik lana fi saa’ina, wa barik lana fi muddina
O Allah! Bless us in our dates, and bless us in our town, bless us in our saa’ and in our Mudd’
(saa’ and Mudd’ are dry measures used for agricultural produce by the Arabs in the Prophet’s time)
[at-Tirmidhi 5:504, ad-Darimi 1:336]
Recited at intervals of taraweeh prayers

Upon breaking the fast in someone’s home



أفْطَرَ عِنْدَكُمُ الصَّائِمُونَ، وَ أَكَلَ طَعَامَكُمُ الأبْرَارُ، وَ صَلَّتْ عَلَيْكُم ُ الْمَلائِكَةُ

Aftara ‘indakumus saa’imuna, wa akala ta’aamakumul-abraaru, wasallat ‘alaikumul mala’ikat
May those who are fasting break their fast in your home, and may the dutiful and pious eat your food and may the angels send prayers upon you.
[abu Dawud 3:367, ibn Majah 1:556, an Nasa'i]
On Lailatul Qadr – the Night of Power
Aishah (radhiya Allahu Ta’ala anha), that she said: “O Messenger of Allah! What if I knew which night Lailatul-Qadr was, then what should I say in it?” He said ‘Say

اَللَّهُمَّ اِنَّكَ عَفُوٌّ ، تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي

Allahumma innaka ‘affuwwun tuhibbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘anni’ “
O Allah You are The One Who pardons greatly, and loves to pardon, so pardon me.
[at Tirmidhi]

RAMADAN: Compulsory Fasting in the Holy Month of RAMADAN or RAMAZAAN
Islam has also prescribed fasting for Muslims, in the form of a period of one month of abstinence accompanied by intense devotional activity, which constitutes the third pillar of Islam. Ramadan Fasting is prescribed to train the Muslims self-discipline and scrupulous obedience to God's commands. Fasting is a compulsory and most common practice all over the world, simultaneously for all Muslims; binding them all in their religious duties which no other religion grants to such benevolence of brotherhood amongst mankind.

Not regarded as penance for sins or as a means
to appease the wrath of God. Besides the Ramadan fast involves total abstinence from all food, drink and sex during the hours between sunrise and sunset. The fast should be broken each day at sunset and is also recommended taking a meal before dawn (suhoor), ie before the daily fast.

In addition to the withdrawal of these ordinary and lawful needs, Muslims also strive to increase their devotional activities during this holy month. Alongside the usual five daily prayers, is made an additional sentence called tarawih, which is performed only during Ramadan. It is done individually or collectively every night. It was also a Sunnah (practice of the Prophet) reciting the entire Quran during this month, and many Muslims today continue this tradition. The last ten days and nights of Ramadan is a period of particularly intense devotion due to the fact that between one of such nights commemoration occurs the Night of Power (Laylat al-Qadr), which produced the first revelation of the Holy Quran to the Prophet Muhammad.




Give financial assistance to those in need is one of the obligations of fasting, as are the bridle the tongue and exercising self-control.

Fasting Muslim does so by disciplined and tenacious. It teaches you to be flexible and adaptable in their habits, to be able to endure hardship and to appreciate the gifts God gives and those normally. Fasting also enables the Muslim to feel the daily experience suffered by the homeless and to be, in this way, active in his compassion and support to him.


Islam recognizes that food, drink and sex are needs to believe in the human bonds of dependency. Therefore, a Muslim is required to for one month a year is unaware of the satisfaction of these needs in the daytime in order to develop their spiritual nature.



While this may seem like a fast hard for those not used to it, in practice it is not only tolerable but also easy for most who do it. It should also be said that only those who have reached puberty and are able to fast, children, the elderly, the sick, women during menstruation, pregnant women and travelers among others, are not required to do so. The month of Ramadan ends with the festival of Eid el-Fitr, the Feast of the Breaking of the Fast, which is one of the most important holidays in the Islamic calendar.

In this festival, which lasts three days, Muslims begin the day swimming and dressing with the best clothes. Then go to the mosque for prayer and the crowd usually overwhelm the sacred and spreads abroad. First food eaten during the day and celebrate passing the test of a collective fasting. After the prayers, people exchange gifts and visit relatives and friends.

They are also required to give alms to the poor. Throughout the day, Muslims have to reflect on the meaning of Islam and try to iron out differences with family and friends, to start a new life under the sign of peace and reconciliation.


Later, the 10th of Dul-Hijja last month, we celebrate the feast of Eid al-Adha, which usually lasts three days. The origins of this festival date back to biblical prophet Ibrahim (Abraham), who showed their willingness to adhere at all to God, who was even willing to sacrifice his dearest son, Ishaq (Isaac). That day, both Muslims who are in Mecca and the rest of the world, started the party with a common prayer and sacrifice a sheep, a cow or a camel, which are left with one hand and the rest is distributed among the poor.


In the name of ALLAH, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful :
○•------------------------------------------------------------------------•○
And when they went into the field against Goliath and his hosts they said: Our Lord! Bestow on us endurance, make our foothold sure, and give us help against the disbelieving folk.

So they routed them by Allah's leave and David slew Goliath; and Allah gave him the kingdom and wisdom, and taught him of that which He wills. And if Allah had not repelled some men by others the earth would have been corrupted. But Allah is a Lord of Kindness to (His) creatures.
