Sehri ki Dua

Sehri or Suhoor is an early meal before the dawning of a new day during Ramadan. However, before indulging in the endeavours Muslims recite the Sehri Dua, an emotional prayer which consists of profound meaning. This call to action surpasses physical nourishment as a spiritual reinforcement that determines we step into the day with.


روزہ رکھنے کی نیت

وَبِصَوْمِ غَدٍ نَّوَيْتُ مِنْ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ

’’اورمیں نے ماہ رمضان کے کل کے روزے کی نیت کی‘‘

At each voicing of "Nawaytu an asuma ghadan min shahri Ramaḍāna," the obedient announce their intention to fast, attuned to the sacred aim of Ramadan. Their request, “Allāhumma aʿinnī ʿalā ṣiyāmihi waqiyāmihi,” hopes for strength and guidance from Allah (SWT) always. They beg Him to enable them not to hunger and thirst but also to offer self-discipline at its peak and heightened prayer.

The Sehri dua is much more than mere words; it's a hushed vow taken under the moonlit cover of pre-sunrise. It is a message of the big spiritual road which about to be taken, a way for self-perfection and drawing closer to Allah (SWT). Every mouthful taken during Sehri is imbued with this holy feeling, thereby turning meal into a wholesome one for both body and spirit.

Therefore, with Fajr Athan reverberating, reflect on the import of the Sehri supplication. Let it be your anchor as well as a reminder of your purpose, a firm support of Allah (SWT) guiding your footsteps on the path of this blessed day.
