To Hurry in Iftar

While fasting, one should hurry with iftar after one is sure that the sun has set. Delaying Iftar without any legitimate cause isn’t allowed. Sahl ibn Saad has related that our blessed Prophet has said “People shall be in welfare as long as they hurry in iftar (breaking fast).” (Bukhari and Muslim)

Abu Hurairah has said that our blessed Prophet has said, “Those of His bondsmen are dear to Allah who hurry with iftar.” (Musnade-Ahmad and Tirmidhi)
