Allah says:

وَمَنْ يَتَّقِ اللَّهَ يَجْعَلْ لَهُ مَخْرَجاً وَيَرْزُقْهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لا يَحْتَسِبُ وَمَنْ يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّهِ فَهُوَ حَسْبُهُ نَّ اللَّهَ بَالِغُ أَمْرِهِ قَدْ جَعَلَ اللَّهُ لِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدْراً [1]

“Allah shall create an escape (from difficulties) for the one who fears (disobeying) Allah. And shall provide for him (what he requires) from sources that he never expected.  Allah is sufficient (to solve all problems) for the one who trusts in him (who is convinced that only Allah can assist him). (Allah can certainly solve any problem a person has because) Allah certainly brings (all) his affairs to completion and Allah has a set measure for everything (therefore things happen when he decides).

أَمَّن يُجِيبُ الْمُضْطَرَّ إِذَا دَعَاهُ وَيَكْشِفُ السُّوءَ وَيَجْعَلُكُمْ خُلَفَاء الأَرْضِ أَإِلَهٌ مَّعَ اللَّهِ قَلِيلاً مَّا تَذَكَّرُونَ[2] 

“Or (is) He who responds to the distressed (helpless) person when he calls him (for help). Who averts evil and who has made you (his) deputies on earth? Is there another Ilaah (who deserves to be worshipped) with Allah? Little do you take heed (think)

لاَ يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلاَّ وُسْعَهَا[3]

“Allah does not place on a soul responsibility except what is within its capability”

فَإِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا (5) إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا[4]

“There is certainly ease after every difficulty. Without doubt, there is ease after every difficulty.”


حدثنا على بن عيسى بن يزيد البغدادي اخبرنا عبد الله بن بكر السهمى اخبرنا عبد الله بن منير عن عبد الله بن بكر عن فائد بن عبد الرحمن بن عبد الله بن ابى اوفى قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم (من كانت له إلى الله حاجة أو إلى احد من بنى آدم فليتوضأ وليحسن الوضوء ثم ليصل ركعتين ثم ليثن على الله وليصل على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ثم ليقل : لا إله إلا الله الحليم الكريم ، سبحان الله رب العرش العظيم الحمد لله رب العالمين ، اسالك موجبات رحمتك وعزائم مغفرتك والغنيمة من كل بر ، والسلامة من كل اثم ، لا تدع لى ذنبا إلا غفرته ولا هما إلا فرجته ، ولا حاجة هي لك رضا إلا قضيتها يا ارحم الراحمين) . قال أبو عيسى : هذا حديث غريب في إسناده مقال فائد بن عبد الرحمن يضعف في الحديث [5]

Allahs Messenger (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam_ said: Whoever has a need from Allah or from one of the sons of Adam, then let him perform wudu, performing it well, then pray two rak’ah, then praise Aaalah and say Salaat upon the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam), then let him say: 'None has the right to be worshiped but Allah. Al-Halim (the Forbearing) Al-Karim (the Generous). Glorious is Allah, Lord of the Magnificent Throne. All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the worlds. I ask You for that which warrants Your mercy, and that which will determine Your forgiveness, and the spoils (fruits) of every righteous deed, and safety from every sin; do not leave a sin for me without forgiving it, nor a worry without relieving it. Or a need that pleases you without granting it. O Most-Merciful of those who have mercy.'"


We also advise you to read Salaatul-Haajah (i.e. Salaah performed for a certain need) every day and make dua to Allah.

  • Perform wudhu properly
  • Read two rakaa’t salah
  • Praise Allah Ta’la and send durud on Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam
  • Recite the following dua:

لاإله إلا الله الحليم الكريم سبحان الله رب العرش العظيم الحمد لله رب العالمين أسئلك موجبات رحمتك وعزائم مغفرتك والغنيمة من كل بر والسلامة من كل إثم لا تدع لي ذنبا الا غفرته ولا هما إلا فرجته ولا حاجة هي لك رضا إلا قضيتها يا أرحم الراحمين 

Transliteration: Lā ilāha illallāhul-halīmul-karīm subhānallāhi rabil-a’rshil-a’dhīm al-hamdu lillahi rabil-ā’lamīn asaluka mūjibāti rahmatik wa a’zāima maghfiratik wal-ghanīmata min kulli birr was-salāmata min kulli ithm lā tada’ lī dhamban illā ghafartah wa lā hamman illa farrajtah wa lā hājatan hiya laka ridhan illa qadhaytahā yā arhamar-rāhimīn

Translation: There there no god but Allah the Clement and Wise. There is no god but Allah the High and Mighty. Glory be to Allah, Lord of the Tremendous Throne.  All praise is to Allah, Lord of the worlds.  I ask you (O Allah) everything that leads to your mercy, and your tremendous forgiveness, enrichment in all good, and freedom from all sin.  Do not leave a sin of mine (O Allah), except that you forgive it, nor any concern except that you create for it an opening, nor any need in which there is your good pleasure except that you fulfill it, O Most Merciful!


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
