RAMADAN DUALIST IN ENGLISH

DUA FOR SIGHTING THE CRESCENT MOON

The month of Ramadan officially begins with the sighting of the crescent moon. The dua for fasting in Ramadan is:

  • Dua:
     “Allahuakbar! Allahumma, ahillahu ‘alaina bil-amni wal-imani was-salamati wal-Islami wat-taufiqi lima tuhibbu wa tardu. Rabbuna wa rabbukallah
  • English translation: Allah is the greatest! O Allah, let the crescent moon loom above us in safety, faith, peace, and Islam, and bless us with the ability to succeed in all that you love and are pleased with. Our Lord and your Lord is Allah.

RAMADAN DUA FOR FASTING

Suhoor or the pre-dawn meal is a significant element during Ramadan as it is the last meal before sunrise and the fast. The Iftar is the evening meal with which Muslims break their fast at sunset. 

Here are the Duas which Muslims recite before keeping and breaking the fast:

  • Dua for Suhoor:
    Wa bisawmi ghadinn nawaiytu min shahri Ramadan
  • English translation: I intend to fast tomorrow in this month of Ramadan.
  • Dua for breaking fast in Ramadan:
    Allahumma inni laka sumtu, wa bika aamantu, [wa ‘alayka tawakkaltu], wa Ala rizqika aftartu
  • English translation: Oh Allah! I fasted for You and I believe in You [and I put my trust in You] and I break my fast with Your sustenance.

RAMADAN DUAS FOR THREE ASHRAS

The month of Ramadan offers Muslims the chance to seek salvation with each Ashra representing its own form of recompense. There are three Ashras in Ramadan each of which has a separate dua. The first Ashra, or 10 days, represents mercy, the next forgiveness, and the last salvation from the hellfire. 

DUA FOR THE FIRST ASHRA

The first 10 days of Ramadan signify Allah’s mercy. Here is a dua for the first 10 days of Ramadan: 

  • Ramadan first Ashra dua:
    Rabbi ighfir warham wa anta khayrur raahimeen
  • English translation: O my Lord! Forgive me and have mercy and You are the best, most merciful.

DUA FOR SECOND ASHRA

The second Ashra is a time for forgiveness. During this stage, Muslims ask for Allah’s pardon and seek repentance from sins. The dua that can be recited during the second Ashra is:

  • Dua:
    Astagfirullaha rab-bi min kulli zambiyon wa-atoobuilaiyh 
  • English translation: I ask for forgiveness from Allah, my Lord, for every sin I have committed. 

DUA FOR THIRD ASHRA

The third and last Ashra ends on the 29th or 30th of Ramadan and holds special significance for Muslims since it represents protection from the hellfire. Additionally, the most important night of the Islamic calendar, Laylat-ul-Qadr also falls during this time. The dua for the last 10 days of Ramadan is:

  • Dua for the third Ashra of Ramadan:
    Allahumma Ajirni minan naar 
  • English translation: O Allah, save me from the hellfire.

DUAS FOR LAYLAT AL QADR

Known as the Night of Destiny, Laylat Al Qadr commemorates the night that the Holy Quran was first revealed to Prophet Mohammad. In addition to dhikr (remembrance of Allah) and recitation of the Quran, some Muslims perform I’tikaf, an Islamic practice including a period of staying in a mosque for a couple of days and devoting themselves to worship. The duas to be recited during Lalat Al Qadr is:
