Upon breaking fast


ذَهَـبَ الظَّمَـأُ، وَابْتَلَّـتِ العُـروق، وَثَبَـتَ الأجْـرُ إِنْ شـاءَ الله.

Thahabath-thama-o wabtallatil-AAurooq, wathabatal-ajru in shaal-lah.

‘The thirst has gone and the veins are quenched, and reward is confirmed, if Allah wills.’



‘AAabdullah Ibn AAamr Ibn Al-AAas related that the Messenger of Allah said: ‘Indeed the fasting person has at the time of breaking fast, a supplication which is not rejected’.  Ibn Abee Mulaykah رحمه الله  said: ‘I Heard AAabdullah Ibn AAomar say when he broke his fast:

اللّهُـمَّ  إِنَّـي أَسْـأَلُـكَ بِرَحْمَـتِكَ الّتي وَسِـعَت كُلَّ شيء، أَنْ تَغْـفِرَ لي .

Allahumma inne as-aluka birahmatikal-latee wasiAAat kulla shay, an taghfira lee.

‘O Allah, I ask You by Your mercy which envelopes all things, that You forgive me.’
