Say: "In the name of Allah the all-merciful, the all-compassionate. I declare my intention to observe the fasting the month of Ramadan, as a believer, in accordance with Sunnah traditions of the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah's peace and blessings be onto him.   Oh, Allah, make it easy on me and accept it from me." Ameen.


When ready to break the fast at sunset:

"Dua - 1

ذَهَبَ الظَّمَأُ وَابْتَلَّتِ الْعُرُوقُ وَثَبَتَ الأَجْرُ إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ

Dhahaba al-zama’ wa abtalat al-‘urooq wa thabata al-ajr in sha Allaah

Thirst is gone, the veins are moistened and the reward is certain if Allaah wills.
