Month of Ramadan

Dua Bahaa

To be recited at the time of Dawn (Suhoor)

It is highly advisably not to neglect having the daybreak meal (suhur) even if a single date or a drink of water are had. The best food in the daybreak meal is fine flour and dates. A hadith reads that Almighty Allah and His angels bless those who seek forgiveness at the last hours of night and have the daybreak meal.”
It is recommended to recite Surah of al-Qadr at early dawn (sahar), for a hadith reads that any believer who recites the Surah of al-Qadr at the daybreak meal and the meal of breaking the fast will be decided as sacrificing his blood for the sake of Almighty Allah between these two periods. 
It is also highly recommended not to neglect the famous salat al-Layl (Night Prayer) and not to neglect the night worship.The highly considerable Dua al Baha is reported from Imam Ali ibn Musa Reza (a.s) who said, “This is the supplication that Imam al-Baqir (a.s) used to say at the last hours of Ramadan nights.” It is as follows:
