Making Du`a' when breaking fast

Q 1: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: The Du`a' (supplication) of a fasting person at the time of breaking Sawm (Fast) will not be rejected. What is the exact time referred to by the phrase "Du`a' at the time of breaking Sawm"? Does it refer to Du`a' made just few moments before Iftar (breaking the Fast), or immediately after it?

A: This Hadith is narrated by Ibn Majah. The author of Al-Zawa'id ranked its Isnad (chain of narrators) as Sahih (authentic). (Part No. 9; Page No. 31) Focusing on the question, Du`a' can be made before or after Iftar because the preposition "at" refers to both times.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
