Once Moosa (A.S) asked Allah: O Allah! You have granted me the honor and privilege of talking to you directly... have you given this privilege to any other person?
Allah replied... O Moosa! I am going to send one ‘ummat’, called ‘Ummat-E-Muhammadi’. They will call me (in supplications) at the time of iftaar with dry lips, parched tongues, emaciated body with eyes sucked deep into their sockets, with livers dry and stomachs suffering the pangs of hunger... they will be much closer to me than you o Moosa!
When you speak to me there are 70,000 veils between you and me but at the time of iftaar, there will not be a single veil between me and the fasting ‘ummati’ of Muhammad (P.B.U.H).
O Moosa I have taken the responsibility that, at the time of iftaar I will never refuse the dua of a fasting person!
Please do pray to Allah all the time especially at Iftaar time!
