Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

This question is related to fasting i hope that you will answer it.

It was my fifth or sixth Roza in holy month of Ramadan.Some friends of my father were invited to aftari.I would also like to tell that my

family lives abroad and only me and my father stay together.

My father is a religious person but he is high of temper.He often scolds very badly.So at the time of aftari when my father`s friends

came i was preparing for the food etc.Then i went to toilet to do wudhu.At that moment azan of maghreb came from the mosque my

father started shouting at me from the aftari table to come quickly.I hurriedly came out of toilet and without saying the Duaa

which Hazrat MUhammad (P.B.U.H) says before breaking the fast i ate the date.tThen afterwards i remembered that i didnt say

Duaa.Can you plz tell that would i have to fast an extra day for this.

Forgot to say dua while breaking fast

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person,  no grave, no prophet,  no imam,  no dai,  nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Your Question: Then afterwards i remembered that i didnt say Duaa. Can you plz tell that would i have to fast an extra day for this.

Beloved sister in Islam,  there is absolutely no need to fast an extra day if you did not break the fast by reciting the supplication of the Messenger of Allah (saws).   The fast that you kept is, Insha Allah, absolutely valid in the sight of Allah Subhanah, and you will receive your full due reward from the Lord of the Worlds.


There is absolutely no condition in Shariah that one must recite the dua or supplication at the time of breaking the fast.   If one follows the Sunnah and recites the supplication as was the practice of the Messenger of Allah (saws),  he/she will receive extra reward from Allah Subhanah;  and if one does not recite the dua or supplication for any reason,  there is no sin and the fast will be considered absolutely valid.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah¬ís Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
