Dua (supplication) for Iftar – breaking of fast

اللَّهُمَّ اِنِّى لَكَ صُمْتُ وَبِكَ امنْتُ وَعَلَى رِزْقِكَ اَفْطَرْتُ

Allahumma Inni laka sumtu wa bika amantu [wa alayka tawakkalto] wa ‘ala rizqika aftartu

O Allah! I fasted for You and I believe in You and I break my fast with Your sustenance.


Dua (supplication) for Suhoor- starting of fast

وَبِصَوْمِ غَدٍ نَّوَيْتَ مِنْ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ

Transliteration: Wa bi-sawmi ghadin nawaytu min shahri ramadan

Translation: I intend to keep the fast for today in the month of Ramadan

A few things you need to know-

*We will do one Maghrib adhan (call to prayer) in accordance with the Jafari time, but you can open your fast with water and dates at the time you want.

*After prayers we eat! IMI will be providing hot vegan and gluten-free food, but it would be great if you could bring starters, drinks or desserts to share.

*You can attend the whole night or drop-in for part of the schedule, as you wish.

*You do not need to be fasting or praying to attend. As with all IMI events, everyone is welcome! Our only requirement is mutual respect.
