Sehri Dua

When beginning the fast – Suhur (sehri)
وَبِصَوْمِ غَدٍ نَّوَيْتَ مِنْ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ
I intend to keep the fast for tomorrow in the month of Ramadan
[Abu Dawud]

  1. Please send me info. on Islamic Tawheed, sunnah, and hadith. All info. will be helpful, and appreciable. Insha Allah. Masha Allah!

  2. Can you please elaborate the word “tomorrow”?

  3. The intention is to intend to fast. Its location is in the heart, but it is sunna to say it with the tongue. One optimally says, “I intend to fast tomorrow as a current performance of the obligation of this year’s Ramadan for Allah Most High.”

    For the obligatory fast, it is obligatory to make the intention during any part of the night (from sunset until just before dawn). A practical way to avoid forgetting the intention is to intend to fast the following day immediately after breaking one’s fast at sunset. Whoever forgets to make the intention, or sleeps before sunset and does not wake up until after dawn must abstain from the nullifiers during that day and then make it up after Ramadan.

    For the supererogatory fast, it is permissible to delay the intention until just before the noon prayer [zuhr], provided that that one has not already done something that nullifies the fast.

    It is obligatory to repeat the intention to fast for every day of Ramadan. It is good practice to intend during its first night to fast the whole month, so that one’s fast will still be valid in the school of Imam Malik (Allah have mercy on him) if one forgets the intention on a particular day.
