Prayers of the Prophet Muhammad for the End of the Meal
Alhamdulillah alladhi at'amna wa sakana
Wa ja'alna min al-muslimin
All praise is due to Allah, Who has given us to eat and to drink
and made us Muslims
Alhamdulillah! Kathiran taiyiban mubarakan fihi, ghaira makfiy'
Wala' muwada, wala mustaghna 'anhu Rabbana.
Praise be to Allah! Much good and blessed praise!
Lord, we cannot repay your favor,
nor can we escape it, nor can we do without it
Alhamdulillah, alladhi huwa ashba'ana wa arwa'na
wa an'ama 'alai'na wa afdzala
Praise be to Allah!
Who has satisfied our hunger and our thirst
And Who has granted us His favors and given to us abundantly
O God, for Thee I have fasted
and with Thy provision I have broken my fast.
