Ramadan Sehr and Iftar Dua

Ramadan is the 9th month of Islamic calendar and Muslims from all over the world do fasting during this month. Ramadan is the month of practice and Muslims devote themselves to Allah. They must visit mosque and recite Quran in this Holy month to get Allah’s blessings. Muslims have their meals twice a day in Ramadan. The meal they take before sunrise is called Sehr and the second meal they take after sunset is called as Iftar. Muslims recite a dua at the time of sehr meal and another dua at the time of iftar to open their fast.

Ramadan Dua for Sehr is:

Wa bisawmi ghadinn nawaiytu min shahri Ramadan

Ramadan Dua for Iftar is:

Allahumma inni laka sumtu wa bika aamantu [wa 'alayka tawakkaltu] wa 'ala rizq-ika aftarthu

They also recite different Ramadan duas every day and not only at the time of Sehr and Iftar. Muslims make routine to perform supplications in this month and ask Allah for forgiveness and consider Ramadan as the month of blessings.
