During the month of Ramadan, Muslims are required to elevate their level of spiritual and physical submission to God by way of fasting; that is to say, Muslims must abstain from eating, drinking, smoking and also husband-wife intimacy from the breaking of dawn until the setting of the sun.

Additionally, during this holy month, Muslims maintain a strong connection with Allah in the hope of receiving numerous rewards and blessings through the recitation of supplications or duas, which are considered the best way to communicate with Him.

To help you on your spiritual path and make your Ramadan more meaningful and fulfilling, we have curated a list of Ramadan duas.

Ramadan duas

During Ramadan, Muslims are encouraged to seek closeness to God through various duas. We have compiled a list of duas that are specifically related to Ramadan and are recommended for recitation during this holy month.

Ramadan moon sighting dua

Observing the moon is crucial for determining the start of Ramadan, and Muslims place great importance on it. When Prophet Muhammad saw the fresh crescent moon, he recited a specific dua, which has become a tradition for Muslims to recite during this time. Therefore, all Muslims across the world are encouraged to remember and recite this dua for moon sighting during Ramadan:

اللَّهُمَّ أَهْلِلْهُ عَلَيْنَا بِالْيُمْنِ وَالإِيمَانِ وَالسَّلاَمَةِ وَالإِسْلاَمِ رَبِّي وَرَبُّكَ اللّٰهُ

Allahumma ahillahu alayna bil-amni wal-iman was-salaamati wal-islam. Rabbi wa rabbuka Allah.

Meaning: O Allah, bring it over us with blessing and faith, and security and Islam. My Lord and your Lord is Allah.

Suhoor dua

This dua is recited during suhoor when you intend to start your fast:

وَبِصَوْمِ غَدٍ نَّوَيْتُ مِنْ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ

Wa bisawmi ghadinn nawaiytu min shahri ramadan.

Meaning: I intend to keep the fast for tomorrow in the month of Ramadan.

Iftar dua

It is recommended to recite this dua before breaking your fast:

اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ صُمْتُ وَ عَلَى رِزْقِكَ أَفْطَرْتُ وَ عَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْتُ

Allaahumma laka s’umtu wa a’laa rizqika aft’artu wa a’layka tawawkkaltu.

Meaning: O my Allah, for Thee, I fast, and with the food Thou gives me I break the fast, and I rely on Thee.

Laylatul Qadr dua

The last 10 nights of Ramadan are considered very significant as it is believed that the Holy Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad during this time. Among these nights, there is one special night called Laylatul Qadr. It is essential to wake up frequently during these nights and engage in nightly prayers. Here is the dua for Laylatul Qadr:

اَللَّهُمَّ إِنَّكَ عَفْوٌ تٌحِبٌّ العَفْوَ فَأَعْفَوْ عَنِّي

Allahumma Innaka a’fuwon tuhibu al a’ffwa fa’fu a’nni.

Meaning: Oh Allah! You are highly forgiving, and You love to forgive people, so please forgive me.

Taraweeh dua

Ramadan is a month when Muslims often perform the Taraweeh prayer. While there is no Hadith recommending any specific dua after the Taraweeh prayer, the following dua is commonly recited and known as the Taraweeh dua:

سُبْحَانَ ذِی الْمُلْکِ وَالْمَلَکُوْتِ سُبْحَانَ ذِی الْعِزَّةِ وَالْعَظَمَةِ وَالْهَيْبَةِ وَالْقُدْرَةِ وَالْکِبْرِيَآئِ وَالْجَبَرُوْتِ سُبْحَانَ الْمَلِکِ الْحَيِ الَّذِی لَا يَنَامُ وَلَا يَمُوْتُ سُبُّوحٌ قُدُّوْسٌ رَبُّنَا وَرَبُّ الْمَلَائِکَةِ وَالرُّوْحِ ط اَللّٰهُمَّ اَجِرْنَا مِنَ النَّارِ يَا مُجِيْرُ يَا مُجِيْرُ يَا مُجِيْر

Subhana zil mulki wal malakooti subhana zil izzati wal azamati wal haibati wal qudrati wal kibriyaai wal jabaroot. Subhanal malikil hayyil lazi laa yanamu wala yamootu subboohun qud’doosur-rab’buna wa rab’bul malaaikati war’rooh. Allahumma ajirna minan naar, ya mujeeru ya mujeeru ya mujeer.

Meaning: Exalted is the Possessor of the hidden and the manifest dominion. Exalted is the Possessor of Might, Greatness, Reverence, Power, Pride, and Majesty. Exalted is the Master, the Living, the one who neither sleeps nor dies. All-perfect, All-holy, Our Lord, and the Lord of the angels and the souls. O Allah, grant us refuge from the Hellfire. O Granter of refuge, O Granter of refuge, O Granter of refuge.

In conclusion, Ramadan is a month of immense spiritual significance for Muslims worldwide. Reciting duas during this holy month is a way to seek Allah’s blessings and rewards. The duas we have compiled in this article are just a few examples of the many supplications that Muslims can recite during Ramadan. By reciting these duas, we hope that you can enhance your spiritual connection and make your Ramadan more meaningful and fulfilling.

May Allah accept our prayers and make this Ramadan a blessed month for all of us.
