The purpose of fasting is not to eat throughout the day showing that a Muslim obeys Allah and fulfils his/her duty towards Allah. At the time of opening the fast, even when all a human wants to do is take a bite or a sip, a Muslim prays “iftar ki dua” before opening the fast. The dua encompasses expressions of faith, trust in Allah’s sustenance, and acknowledgment of the fasting person’s dependence on divine providence.

The Arabic words “ر ز ق” (rizq) play a crucial role in this dua. Rizq means “anything that has been provided to the Muslim” in the form of food, shelter, clothes, family, anything that this dunya offers to the Muslims is rizq for the Muslim. And everything that comes under the umbrella of rizq is given by Allah, both material and immaterial.

“Thirst is gone, the veins are moistened and the reward is certain if Allah wills” 

Dhahaba al-zama wa’btalat al-‘uruq wa thabata al-ajr in sha Allah” 

(Narrated by Abu Dawud, 2357; al-Daraqutni, 25. Ibn Hajar said in al-Talkhis al-Habir (2/202): al-Daraqutni said, its isnad is sahih.)

Pointing out the importance of making Iftar Ki Dua during Ramadan, Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah said: 

“Allah tells us that He is close to His slaves and responds to the supplication (du’a) of the one who calls upon Him. Here He is telling us of His Lordship (rububiyyah) over them and that He gives them what they ask for and He responds to their du’a. For if they call upon Him that means they believe that He is their Lord. Then He enjoins two things upon them, as He says (interpretation of the meaning)”: 

“So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led aright.” [al-Baqarah 2:186]
