It is highly advised not to neglect the suhur (meal before starting fast) even if a single date or drink of water are had. A Hadith reads that Almighty Allah and his angels bless those who seek forgiveness in the last hours of the night and have the meal before starting their fasts.

It is recommended to recite Sura Qadr at the time of sahar for a Hadith reads that any believer who recites Sura Qadr at the meal before starting the fast and the meal of breaking the fast (iftar) will be rewarded as sacrificing his blood for the sake of Almighty Allah between these two periods.

What is Iftar and Sehri (Suhoor)?

Iftar is a meal eaten by Muslims at sunset to break their daily fast during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Iftar is the evening meal when Muslims end their daily Ramadan fast at sunset. It is preceded by a pre-dawn meal called suhoor. The fast is broken with dates, as was the tradition of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. This is followed by a prayer called the Maghrib prayer. Then, depending on the region, the iftar meal consists of a variety of traditional dishes, such as soups, salads, appetizers, main dishes, and desserts. After the meal, many Muslims attend a special congregational prayer called the Tarawih.

Our Lord, give us in this world [that which is] good and in the Hereafter [that which is] good and protect us from the punishment of the Fire.
