Once Musa alayhi salam asked Allah ta’ala: O Allah!  You have granted me the honour and privilege of talking to you directly, have you given this privilege to any other person? Allah ta’ala replied: O Musa! During the last period I am going to send an ummat, who will be the ummat of Muhammad (salla’Allahu alayhi wasalam) with dry lips, parched tongues, emaciated bodies with eyes sunken deep into their sockets, with livers dry and stomachs suffering the pangs of hunger, who will call out to me (in dua), they will be much closer to me than you O Musa! While you speak to me there are 70,000 veils between you and me but at the time of iftaar (breaking of fast) there will not be a single veil between me and the fasting ummati of Muhammad (salla’Allahu ‘alayhi wasalam). O Musa! I have taken upon myself the responsibility that at the time of iftaar I will never refuse the dua of a fasting person!
