Du'aa' When Fasting is Not Rejected
31st May 2018
The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: 

ثلاث دعوات لا ترد: دعوة الوالد، ودعوة الصائم، ودعوة المسافر 

"Three du'aa's are never rejected: 

1) The du'aa' of the father, 

2) The du'aa' of the one fasting, 

3) The du'aa' of the traveller."
[1] 

In another narration, it is reported that he صلى الله عليه وسلم said: 

ثلاث لا ترد دعوتهم: الصائم حتى يفطر، والإمام العادل، ودعوة المظلوم يرفعها الله فوق الغمام، يفتح لها أبواب السماء، ويقول الرب: وعزتي لأنصرنك ولو بعد حين 

"Three people's du'aa's are never rejected: 

1) The one who is fasting, until he breaks his fast, 

2) The just ruler, 

3) The one who has been wronged. 

Allaah سبحانه و تعالى raises it above the clouds, and the doors of the skies are opened for it, and the Lord سبحانه و تعالى says, 'By My Honour and Glory! I will help you, even if it be after some time!'"
[2] 

The preceding hadeeth shows that the one who is fasting can make du'aa' throughout the day, and his du'aa' will be responded to. 

In a third hadeeth, the time just before breaking the fast has been specified, so a person should strive even more at this particular time to be sincere in his du'aa'. The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: 

 إن للصائم عند فطره دعوة لا ترد 

"Indeed, the one who is fasting has - while he is about to break his fast - a du'aa' that is not rejected." [3] [4] 

Notes: 

[1] Reported by al-Bayhaqi in his Sunan (3/345) and others. Shaykh al-Albaani رحمه الله declared it to be authentic in as-Saheehah, # 1797. 

[2] Reported by at-Tirmidhi (# 3598), who declared it to be hasan. However, Shaykh al-Albaani رحمه الله pointed out that it has a very slight weakness in it in ad-Da'eefah, # 1358. 

[3] Reported by Ibn Maajah (# 1753) and others. Imaam al-Busayri رحمه الله said (2/350), "Its isnaad is saheeh," and al-Haafidh Ibn Hajar رحمه الله declared it to be hasan (see Shaykh Sa'eed ibn 'Ali al-Qahtaani حفظه الله, Shuroot ad-Du'aa' wa Mawaani' al-Ijaabat, Mu'asasat al-Juraysi, Riyadh, 1416 A.H., p. 121). However, Shaykh al-Albaani رحمه الله did not agree with them, and declared it to be da'eef in his al-Irwaa', # 921. It seems that the hadeeth has a very slight weakness in it, and Allaah سبحانه و تعالى knows best.
