Fundamentals of Fasting – Iftar
Iftar (Breaking Fast)
It is highly recommended that the fast be broken as soon as Maghrib (setting of the sun) occurs. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “People will remain happy and prosperous as long as they hasten to break the fast.”
It is also recommended that the fast be broken with dates and water if available. Anas ibn Malik said, “The Prophet (peace be upon him) used to break his fast with a few dates just before the beginning of Salatul-Maghrib. If fresh dates were not available he would break his fast by drinking a little water.”
