    1. Dua for intentions before fasting

    “وَبِصَوْمِ غَدٍ نَّوَيْتُ مِنْ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ"
    “With the intention to fast tomorrow, from the month of Ramadan."


    This Dua is recited to express one's intention to fast the following day during the month of Ramadan. It's a spiritual commitment, aligning oneself with the act of fasting, which not only involves abstaining from food and drink but also encompasses a deeper intention of spiritual growth and connection with Allah.


    2. Dua for breaking your fast

    “ذَهَبَ الظَّمَأُ، وَابْتَلَّتِ العُرُوقُ، وَثَبَتَ الأَجْرُ إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ”
    “The thirst has gone, the veins are moistened and the reward is assured, if Allah wills.”


    This Dua is recited at the time of breaking the fast, expressing gratitude to Allah for alleviating thirst and rejuvenating the body's strength after a day of fasting. It acknowledges the physical relief and the spiritual reward promised by Allah for fasting.


    3. Dua for seeking help and guidance in fasting

    “اَللهمَّ أعنّي فيه على صيامه وقيامه، وجنّبني فيه من هفواته وآثامه، وارزقني فيه ذكرك بدوامه، بتوفيقك يا هادي المضلّين”
    “O Allah, assist me in fasting and standing for prayer, and keep me away from mistakes and sins, and bless me with the remembrance of You throughout it. By Your guidance, O Guide of those who are astray.”


    This Dua seeks Allah's help and guidance to observe fasting and night prayers, while also asking for protection from errors and sins. It's a supplication for spiritual strength and steadfastness throughout the fasting period, acknowledging one's reliance on Allah for success in observing the fast and avoiding wrongdoing.


    4. Dua for trusting and succeeding in fasting

    “اَللهمَّ اجعلني فيه من المتوكلين عليك، واجعلني فيه من الفائزين لديك، واجعلني فيه من المقرّبين إليك بإحسانك يا غاية الطالبين”
    “O Allah, make me among those who rely on You, and make me among those who succeed before You, and make me among those who are near to You with Your kindness, O Most Sought-after by those who seek.”


    This Dua expresses trust in Allah's support during fasting, seeking success and closeness to Him through His kindness. It's a plea to be among those who rely on Allah for guidance and success in their fasting endeavors, striving to draw nearer to Him through righteous deeds.


    5. Dua for staying focused while fasting

    “اَللهمَّ ارزقني فيه الذِّهن والتنبيه، وباعدني فيه من السفاهة والتمويه، واجعل لي نصيباً من كلِّ خيرٍ بِجودك يا أجود الأجودين”
    “O Allah, grant me alertness and vigilance during it, and keep me away from foolishness and deception, and grant me a share of every good through Your generosity, O Most Generous of the generous.”


    This Dua asks for mental clarity and protection from distractions and deceit during fasting, seeking Allah's generosity in all goodness. It's a supplication for guidance and wisdom to discern between right and wrong, and to be mindful of one's actions and intentions while observing the fast.
