Dua for Iftar
Iftar is the term which is used for breaking the fast.
Allahumma Inni laka sumtu wa bika amantu [wa alayka tawakkalto] wa 'ala rizqika aftartu.
Dua for Suhur
The beginning of the fast is known as Suhur.
Wa bi-sawmi ghadin nawaytu min shahri Ramadan
This intention or (niyyah) is an action of the heart. The Muslim should decide in his heart that he is going to fast tomorrow. Though, it is not recommended for him to utter it out loud and say, "I intend to fast" or "I will fast tomorrow" or other expressions that have been originated by some people. Still, the correct intention is when a person decides in his heart that he is going to fast tomorrow, in short, it totally depends on the intention of his heart what he wants to do for getting reward and blessings of Allah.
Schedule of Perth Ramadan Calendar
Right now, It is to be expected that according to the Islamic calendar, the Perth Ramadan calendar will start on Friday, the May 26th and will continue until Sunday, June 25th, 2017. Now, it is to be noted that according to the Islamic dates of Perth Ramadan timetable, it commences on the sunset of the previous day so the Muslims will rejoice Ramadan on the sunset of Friday, 26th May 2017.
Even though Ramadan is persistently on the same day of the Islamic calendar but the date on the Gregorian calendar fluctuates every year. This statistic indicates that the Gregorian calendar is a solar calendar and the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar. Thus, this distinction means Ramadan moves in the Gregorian calendar nearly 11 days every year and the date of Ramadan may also vary from country to country depending on whether the moon has been sighted or not. And subsequently, the Muslim all over the world follows the time and calendar of their respective areas so people of Perth can follow the given Perth Ramadan Kareem calendar for the year 2017.
