How to break our Ramazan fasting?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

The fast is to be broken at sunset, ie when the azan for magrib prayer is made. It is sunnah to hasten to break fast. It is sunnah to break fast with fresh dates or dry dates or water and Say 'Bismillah'.

The dua's that the prophet mohammad(pbuh) recited at the iftar time are:

The dua he(pbuh) recited before breaking fast:
Narrated by Mu'adh ibn Zuhrah The Prophet of Allah (saws) used to say when he (saws) broke his fast: 'O Allah, for Thee I have fasted, in Thee I have believed, and with Thy provision I have broken my fast.' (Allah humma inni laka sumto, wa bika amanto, wa ala rizkika aftarto.) ABU-DAWUD[hadith 2351 ]

and the dua after breaking fast:
Narrated by Abdullah ibn Umar When the Messenger of Allah (saws) had broken his fast he (saws) would say: 'The thirst has gone, the glands are moist, and the reward is confirmed, if Allah Wills.' (Zahaba zamau, wab tallatil urooqo, wa thabatal ajro Insha Allah.) ABU-DAWUD[Hadith 2350 ] And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
