(In the Name of Allah (SWT), Most Gracious, Most Merciful, all praise and thanks are due to Allah, Lord of the Realms and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger (SAWS) and upon all his family and companions)

We as Muslims are told that there are certain aspects of our religion which exists to make a certain significant difference and this is precisely what Dua can do. It is to an extent said that Dua is a weapon for a believer who wish to be heard by its Lord, Allah (SWT) and this is where we are told below by our Beloved Prophet (SAWS).

Abu Saeed Khudri (Radhiyallaho anho) relates that Prophet Mohammad(Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam) said, "Every day and night of Ramadan Allah sets free a great number of souls from Jahannam. And for every Muslim during every day and night there is a time when his dua is certainly accepted. (Bazzaar).

While this is important for your information, we are blessed with an opportunity to make ourselves heard and this can be done in the very month of Ramadan. As Ramadan Dua is an effective way to seek forgiveness, mercy and blessings. Make sure that you pray before opening/breaking your fast next time.

The famous dua at if'taar is: "O Allah for you have I fasted, in You do I believe, and on You do I rely and now I break this fast with food coming from you." There are various other Dua’s told with different authentications to make you achieve more than now and this can only be done with appropriate knowledge.
