Dua’ for a Job

Question

Dua for Job

 

I am finding the job for a long successful , could you please any dua/zikar which i can read it 

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Brother in Islām,

We make du’ā to Allah Ta’āla that He grant you a ḥalāl and pure sustenance.

Allah Ta’āla is the provider of sustenance. Allah Ta’āla says:

إِنَّ اللهَ هُوَ الرَّزَّاقُ ذُو الْقُوَّةِ الْمَتِيْنِ 

Translation:

“Surely Allah is the Sustainer (He provides people with their sustenance), the Possessor of absolute power, the Strong (Allah is not in need of His creation, but they are most definitely in need of Him”

[Surah Al Dhāriyāt, Verse 58]

Allah Ta’āla says:

اللهُ يَبْسُطُ الرِّزْقَ لِمَن يَّشَاءُ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ وَيَقْدِرُ لَهُ إِنَّ اللهَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيْمٍ 

Translation:

“Allah increases (enlarges) sustenance for whoever He wills of His bondsmen (servants) and reduces (it for whoever he wills). Verily Allah has knowledge of all things. (He knows exactly why some deserve more and others less).”

[Surah ‘Ankabūt, Verse 62]

Allah Ta’āla says:

وَكَأَيِّن مِّنْ دَابَّةٍ لَا تَحْمِلُ رِزْقُهَا اللهُ يَرْزُقُهَا وَإِيَّاكُمْ وَهُوَ السَّمِيْعُ الْعَلِيْمُ 

“How many are the animals that do not carry their own provision (as man does)? (Despite this), Allah (still) sustains them and you (people) as well. He is the All-Hearing (hears all your du’ās), the All Knowing (knows your needs and will fulfil them).”

[Surah ‘Ankabūt, Verse 60]

 

While we believe that Allah is the sole provider of our sustenance, we live in this world of means (Darul Asbāb).[1] Allah provides us our sustenance through the means we adopt.

You should adopt effective means for your income and consult appropriate people and seek their wise counsel on what you should do to earn an income.

You should also read the following du’ā after every Fajr Ṣalāh:

الَّلهُمَّ إِنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ عِلْمًا نَّافِعًا وَعَمَلًا مُّتَقَبَّلًا وَرِزْقًا طَيِّبًا

Translation:

“Oh Allah! Indeed I ask You for beneficial knowledge, accepted actions and a pure sustenance”[2]

You should also read the following du’ā:

اللَّهُمَّ اكْفِنِيْ بِحَلَالِكَ عَنْ حَرَامِكَ وَاغْنِنِيْ بِفَضْلِكَ عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ 

“Oh Allah! Suffice me from Haram with Halal and make me sufficient through your grace from all except You”[3]

Also, make istighfār and recite durūd sharif abundantly.[4]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

[1] فاعتقاد أهل السنة والجماعة أن الأسباب حادثة مخلوقة خلقها الله تعالى وأنه لا تأثير لها فيما قارنها من آثارها لا بطبعها ولا بقوة أو خاصية جعلت فيها ولكنه تعالى جعل الأسباب أمارات ودلائل على ما شاء خلقه من الحوادث من غير ملازمة عقلية بين وجود الأسباب وبين وجود آثارها التي جعلت الأسباب دليلا عليها ولكنه تعالى جعل بين الأسباب وآثارها تلازما عاديا نلاحظه بحكم العادة والتكرار

أخبرنا محمد بن أحمد بن القاسم الأزدي ثنا طاهر بن محمد التميمي ثنا الفيض بن إسحاق قال سألت الفضيل بن عياض قلت لو أن رجلا قعد في بيته زعم أنه يثق بالله فيأتيه برزقه؟ قال يعني إذا وثق به حتى يعلم أنه قد وثق به لم يمنعه شيء أراده ولكن لم يفعل هذا الأنبياء ولا غيرهم وقد كانت الأنبياء يؤاجرون أنفسهم وكان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم آجر نفسه وأبو بكر وعمر ولم يقولوا نقعد حتى يرزق الله عز وجل وقد قال الله تعالى في كتابه {وابتغوا من فضل الله} فلابد من طلب المعيشة

قال ابن حجر ص329-331: ورجال هذه الأسانيد رجال الصحيح إلا المبهم فإنه لم يسم ولأم سلمة موال وثقوا وقد أخرجه الدارقطني في الأفراد من رواية عمر بن سعيد - وهو أخو سفيان الثوري – عن موسى بن أبي عائشة فقال عن بعض أهل أم سلمة فكأنه أطلق الأهل على المولى وأخرجه أيضا من رواية شاذان عن سفيان الثوري فقال عبد الله بن شداد بدل مولى أم سلمة وهي رواية شاذة وقد وجدت للحديث شاهدا من أجله قلت إنه حسن

قال ابن حجر ص411: هذا حديث حسن أخرجه ابن السني عن أبي يعلى
