Dear brothers and Sisters, :salam2: Ramadan Kareem! I hope Allah is making the fasting easy for everyone. I have a question. It is a practice I have been doing for long and recently there is a debate about it. I would be glad if someone would clear my doubt with references and proofs. I say (or whisper not read out loud) these du'a before fasting: "Wa bisawmi ghadinn nawaiytu min shahri ramadan" which means "I intend to keep the fast for tomorrow in the month of Ramadan" and while finishing the fast "Allahumma inni laka sumtu wa bika aamantu wa alayka tawakkaltu was ala rizq-ika-aftarhu" which means "O Allah! I fasted for You and I believe in You and I put my trust in You and I break my fast with Your sustenance". I know it is not Fard. But some articles say Prophet Muhammad used to say it ( http://d1.islamhouse.com/data/en/ih_books/single/en_The_Fasting_of_Ramadan_Zeenoo.pdf). Now, some people say that it is wrong and saying these du'a would result in the act of Bida'h. I am confused about this since I have been doing it for long and the meaning of the du'a is not wrong. I am just expressing my intention (not loud, just saying to Allah). Please clarify if it is a bida'h. Thank you all. Allah knows the best. Jazakallahu Khair!
