Power of Dua at the time of Iftaar

Taken from yanabi.com, posted by ayaz_cool

Once Moosa ( alayhis 'salam) asked Allah Taala: 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 Taala replied, O Moosa during the last period I am going to send an ummat, who will be the Ummat of Mohammed ( Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam) with dry lips, parched tongues, emaciated body with eyes sunken deep into their sockets, with livers dry and stomachs suffering the pangs of hunger- will call out to me (in dua) they will be much much closer to me than you O Moosa! while you speak to me there are 70000 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 Mohammed ( Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam)

O Moosa I have taken upon myself the responsibility that at the time of iftaar I will never refuse the dua of a fasting person!

Saudi Arabia (Makkah ) - With many countries in the world celebrating the first day of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, Saudi Arabia's and the world's biggest clock perched on the Makkah Clock Tower started the trial run since Wednesday morning.

The clock is perched on a sky rise which is part of the King Abdelaziz endowment property in Makkah, and the entire tower project is due for completion in three months.

The project was ordered by Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdelaziz in an attempt to provide an alternative for Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), currently used as international reference.

The design of the project has traditional Islamic architectural features and the clock is to be run with the latest operating systems and gear.

The tower is 601 meters high and the clock has four faces, one in each direction, with the name of Allah on top of each. The face of the clock is over 40 meters in diameter and is over 400 meters above surface level.

The call for prayer from the Holy Mosque would be heard from the new landmark's loudspeakers for a distance of almost seven kilometers. The tower itself could be seen from a distance of eight kilometers.
