THE PREDAWN MEAL AND BREAKING THE FAST

Print Friendly

Having a predawn meal between the middle of the night and dawn is sunna (recommended). It is considered best to delay it so that it will be eaten as close to dawn as possible. Those who are fasting should hasten to break the fast when the sun has set and, just before eating, make the following supplication (highly recommended): “O God, I have fasted for You, believed in You, placed my trust in You, and break my fast with Your provisions.”
