Dua For Starting and Ending Fast

Q: assalam O alaikum…when keeping a nafil fast, what is the dua to recite when commencing and ending the fast?

A: Wa alaikum As Salaam,

While commencing the fast, one can say: ‘Nawaitu Sawma Ghadin Lillahi Ta’ala’ ‘I intend to fast for this coming day for the sake of Allah’

While ending the fast, one can say: ‘Allahumma laka sumtu wa ala rizqika aftartu’ ‘O Allah! I have fasted for your sake and with your sustenance do I break my fast’

And Allah Knows Best.
