How to break fast sunnah bohra
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: ….I would like to know that when opening a fast, which dua is to be recited?
The supplications the Noble Messenger of Allah (saws) would make when breaking his fast were:
Sunan of Abu-Dawood 2351 Narrated by Mu'adh ibn Zuhrah
The Prophet of Allah (saws) used to say when he (saws) broke his fast: ‘O Allah, for Thee I have fasted, in Thee I have believed, and with Thy provision I have broken my fast.’
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 2350 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Umar
When the Messenger of Allah (saws) had broken his fast he (saws) would say: ‘The thirst has gone, the glands are moist, and the reward is confirmed, if Allah Wills.’
Respected sister in Islam, if you were to recite any one of the above two quoted supplications from the Sunnah at the time of breaking your fast, it would be in accordance with the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws).
Question: ….Also, the fast is opened with Khaak-e-shifaa? What is the
significance of this except that it is the sand/dust from
Anas reported: "The Messenger of Allah (saws) would break his fast with ripe dates before he would pray (Magrib prayers). If those were not available, he would eat dried dates. If those were not available, he would drink some water."
Related by Abu Dawud, al-Hakim, and by at-Tirmidhi.
The Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) when breaking his fasts would be to consume ripe dates; if ripe dates were not available he (saws) would consume dried dates; and if no dates were available, he (saws) would break his fast by consuming some water.
Respected sister in Islam, we absolutely assure you that
there is absolutely no mention in the authentic and established Sunnah of the
Messenger of Allah (saws), or his noble family, or his noble companions ever
breaking a fast by consuming the sand/dust from
We absolutely assure you in the Blessed Name of Allah Subhanah that the consumption of sand/dust while breaking one’s fast is not from amongst the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws)!!!
Your Question: Also is the dua anywhere from the Quran?
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzab verse 21:
There is indeed the best example for you to follow in the Messenger of Allah, for every such person looks forward to Allah and the Last Day, and remembers Allah much.
The duas and supplications when breaking one’s fast are not related in the Glorious Quran, but rather they are from the authentic and established Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws).

May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth. If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause. We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
