The Intention of Ramadan Fasting
Reading the intention of fasting Ramadan is a sign of the beginning of fasting as well as a legal condition for the implementation of fasting. According to Shaykh Abu Bakr Jabir al-Jaza’iri in the Book of Minhajul Muslim, the intention of fasting Ramadan should be read before entering the time of the dawn prayer.
Meanwhile, the time of intention can already start from night. Rasulullah SAW also once said:
مَنْ لَمْ يُبَيِّتْ الصِّيَامَ قَبْلَ طُلُوعِ الْفَجْرِ فَلَا صِيَامَ لَهُ
Meaning: “Whoever has not intended (to fast) in the night before dawn then there is no fast for him.” (HR. Ad-Daru Quthni and Al- Baihaqi).
Here is a reading of the intention of fasting Ramadan in Arabic, Latin, and its meaning:
نَوَيْتُ صَوْمَ غَدٍ عَنْ أَدَاءِ فَرْضِ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانِ هذِهِ السَّنَةِ لِلهِ تَعَالَى
Nawaitu shouma ghodin ‘an adaa-i fardhisy syahri romadhoona hadzihis sanati lillaahi ta’aala.
Meaning: “I intend to fast tomorrow to fulfill my obligations in the month of Ramadan this year because of Allah Ta’ala.”
