Hadith on Fasting: The Acceptance of Supplication

📖Sunan Ibn Majah 1753
It was narrated from ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin ‘As that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “When the fasting person breaks his fast, his supplication is not turned back.” (One of the narrators) Ibn Abi Mulaikah said: “When he broke his fast, I heard ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr say: ‘O Allah! I ask You by Your mercy, which encompasses all things, to forgive me.

  • The overall meaning of this hadith is that there is a special opportunity for a person to have their supplications accepted by Allah when they break their fast. It serves as a reminder of the importance of making supplications and seeking forgiveness from Allah during this blessed time, as the fast is a means of drawing closer to Him. It also highlights the mercy of Allah, which is vast and all-encompassing, and encourages believers to seek His forgiveness and blessings in their prayers.
