The supplication of a fasting person is accepted as narrated in the following report:

This report was narrated by at-Tirmidhi (2526) from Abu Hurayrah, from the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him), who said: “There are three whose supplication is not rejected: a just ruler, the fasting person when he breaks his fast, and the prayer of one who has been wronged is lifted up above the clouds, the gates of heaven are opened for it and the Lord, may He be glorified and exalted, says: ‘By My might, I shall surely grant you support you [against the wrongdoer], even after some time.’” Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh at-Tirmidhi.

According to a report narrated by Ahmad (8030): “… and the fasting person until he breaks his fast.” This hadith was classed as saheeh by Shu‘ayb al-Arna’oot in Tahqeeq al-Musnad.

So the supplication of a fasting person that is answered is that which they offer whilst they are fasting, until they start to break their fast, and not after that.
