Dua for Keeping Fast in Ramadan

The holy month of Ramadan is a month full of blessings and forgiveness. As a month full of goodness and rewards, Muslims around the world will compete to perform obligatory sunnah practices.

One that cannot be missed is certainly carrying out Ramadan fasting which is an obligatory worship. Fasting is very important, considering that it is one of the pillars of Islam.

In Islam, everything will be calculated based on its intention. The intention (niyyah) of fasting in Ramadan is one of the pillars of fasting, because if you fast without intention, then your fast will be invalid.

This is as explained in the hadith of Rasulullah SAW “Whoever does not have the intention to fast before dawn, then there is no fasting for him,” (Sunan al-Tirmidhi 730).

From the hadith above, we can conclude that when someone is fasting but does not intend to stay at night until dawn arrives, then his fast is invalid and he must make up for it in another month.

Meanwhile, according to the Maliki School, it is enough for us to read dua for keeping fast for the full month on the first night of Ramadan. So there is no need to repeat our niyyah of fasting every day because Ramadan fasting is a unity of worship. (Yusuf Al-Qaradhawi, Fiqh al-Shiyam, p. 84)
