Dua at the time of Ending the Fast (Iftar)

It is recommended to begin breaking the fast with utterly legally gotten food, especially dates. This act doubles the reward of the prayer to four hundred folds. It is also advisable to break the fast with dates, ripe dates, candy, sugar-candy, and cool water.A hadith reads, “Almighty Allah releases from Hellfire one million persons at the last hour of every day in Ramadan; therefore, pray Almighty Allah to include you with these released ones.”It is recommended to recite the Surah of al-Qadr (inna Anzalna..) at breaking the fast.It is recommended to say the familiar supplications of breaking the fast, such as the following:

O Allah: For the sake of You have I fasted; and with Your sustenance have I broken my fast; and in You have I trusted.

اللّهُمَّ لَكَ صُمْتُ، وَعَلَى رِزْقِكَ أَفْطَرْتُ، وَعَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْتُ.

It has been narrated that Imam `Ali (a.s) used to say the following invocation when he would break his fasting:

بِسْمِ اللّهِ،

In the Name of Allah.

اللّهُمَّ لَكَ صُمْنَا،

O Allah: For You have we fasted;

وَعَلَى رِزْقِكَ أَفْطَرْنَا،

and with Your sustenance have we broken our fasting;

فَتَقَبَّلْ مِنَّا
