Thirteen way to increase your sustenance (Rizik)

by I Need Allah
Zakat In Islam

As soon as a Muslim believes that his income and earnings, life and death, and good luck and bad luck are determined when he is in his mother’s womb. And all this he gains through the means allotted to him. So our duty is not to sit idly by but to try to collect the prescribed means and materials for this. Such as farming, business-trade, industry-art, job-work, or something else. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “It is He Who has made the earth easy for you, so walk in the wilderness thereof, and eat from His provision. And to Him is the resurrection. [ Surah Al-Mulk, verse: 15 ]

Today, we will discuss 14 ways of increasing the sustenance from the Qur’an and Hadith, In Sha Allah.

The first period:   To adopt taqwa and tawakkul. To fear Allah and to practice taqwa, to follow His instructions and to refrain from forbidden things. As well as having unwavering trust in Allah, relying on Him and praying for His help in seeking sustenance. For he who puts his trust in Allah is sufficient for him. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “ And whoever fears Allaah, He will prepare for him a way out. And he will provide for her from a source she never imagined. And whosoever puts his trust in Allah, then He is sufficient for him. God will fulfill His purpose. Indeed, Allah has set a time for everything. [ Surah At-Talaq, verses 2-3 ]

That is, whoever fears Allah and shows obedience, Allah will remove all his troubles and provide for him from his unimaginable place. And whoever seeks refuge in Allah alone after attaining his purpose, He is sufficient for him. Needless to say, the identity of this taqwa is matched by trying to earn halal and avoiding doubtful earnings.

The second period:  Repentance and forgiveness. The greater the amount of forgiveness and the more one prays to Allah for forgiveness, the more the sustenance increases. Allaah narrates the story of one of His Prophets and Messengers, Noah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “ And I said, ‘Ask forgiveness of your Lord; Surely He is the Forgiving, the Merciful. (He will ask you for forgiveness) ‘He will send down on you a torrential rain,’ and will help you with wealth and children, and will give you gardens and rivers. [ Surah Nooh, verses: 10-12 ]

Hadith, the bit has been fully explained, Abdullah bin Abbas radiallahu anhu narrated by, the Messenger of Allah said: ” Whoever regularly apologizes to Allah for all his problems to overcome would be put out, the anxiety will pay, and unimaginable source of his mental competency resources Will do ”[Abu Dawood: 1520; Ibn Majah: 3619; Tabarani: 6291] [1]

Third period: To maintain good relations with relatives. Rizik also grows through maintaining good relations with relatives and realizing their rights. For example, Narrated Abu Huraira: I heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) saying, “Whoever is pleased that he be granted more wealth and that his lease of life is prolonged, then he should keep good relations with his Kith and kin.”[Bukhari: 5985]

Fourth Amal: Reading Darood on the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). The recitation of the Darood to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) also gives rise to Rizi. As is inferred from the following hadith. Narrated by Tofail ibn Ubayy ibn Ka’b, may Allah be pleased with him, he said:I asked, “O Allah’s Apostle, I want to recite more daroods to you, so how much should I keep for your daroods in my du’aa ‘?” He said, as much as you want. Ka’b said, “I said, ‘A quarter.’ He said, as much as you want. But if you read more, it will be better for you. I said, half? He said, as much as you want. But if you read more, it will be better for you. Ka’b said, I said, then two-thirds? He said, as much as you want. But if you read more, it will be better for you. I said, I will keep only your darood throughout my dua. He said, then it will be enough for your troubles and needs and your sins will be forgiven. ”[Tirmidhi: 2645; Hakeem, Mustadrak: ৭৬৭৭ (Abu Isa said, the hadith ‘Hasan’ is Saheeh.)]

Fifth Amal: Spending in the way of Allah. If anyone spends or gives in the way of Allah, it does not fail. He does not run out of resources. Rather, it leads to nothing. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning ): “ Say: Surely my Lord enlarges the provision for whom He wills of His slaves and straitens (it for whom He wills). And whatever you spend for Allah, He will repay you, and He is the best of providers. [ Surah As-Saba ‘, verse 39 ]

Sixth period: Performing Hajj-Umrah repeatedly. Hajj and Umrah, in addition to atonement for sins, alleviate the needs of Hajj and Umrah performers, and increase their wealth. Narrated by Abdullah Ibn Masood (may Allah be pleased with him), he said: The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said: Perform Hajj and Umrah one after the other, for it removes the deficiency and sin, just as the blacksmith’s whip removes the dirt of iron, gold, and silver. ”[ Tirmidhi: 615; Nasai: 2631 ]

Seventh Amal: To be kind to the weak or to do good. Mus’ab ibn Sa’d (may Allah be pleased with him) imagined in his mind after the victory of the battle that he felt more dignified than others because of his heroism and bravery. Abu Darda reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace, and blessings be upon him, said, “Seek out the vulnerable among you. Verily, you are only given provision and support due to your support of the weak.”Source: Sunan al-Tirmidhī 1702

Eighth Amal: To be free from hassle for worship. When there is no hassle for the worship of Allah, it also removes the lack and gains abundance. On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: Allah said: Sons of Adam inveigh against [the vicissitudes of] Time, and I am Time, in My hand is the night and the day (1). (1) As the Almighty is the Ordainer of all things, to inveigh against misfortunes that are part of Time is tantamount to inveighing against Him. It was related by al-Bukhari (also by Muslim).

Ninth Amal: Migrating in the way of Allah. When he migrated or left his homeland for the sake of Allah’s pleasure, this also gave rise to Rizik. As is understood from the following verses. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “And whoever emigrates in the way of Allaah, he will find in the earth many places of refuge and prosperity. And whoever emigrates for the sake of Allah and His Messenger and then dies, then his reward is with Allah. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful. [Surah An-Nisa, verse: 100]

Interpretation of the verse Abdullah ibn Abbas and other Companions, may Allah be pleased with them, said, “Prosperity means breadth for Rizi.”

Tenth Amal: Jihad in the way of Allah. Wealth also spreads in the jihad to gain the pleasure of Allah alone. Abundance comes to the world through booty or war-acquired wealth. As narrated by Ibn ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him), the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “ And my sustenance is kept in the shade of my spear. ”[Musnad Ahmad: 56; Baihaqi: 1154; Shu’abul Iman: 1973]

Eleventh period: To get married. Nowadays people are so addicted to the abundance and luxury of the world, they decide to delay marriage despite the need for the argument that there is not much money. It may surprise them that marriage also brings abundance to the human family. Because, whoever is new to the world, he comes with the allotted rizik. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “ And marry unmarried men and women among you, and the virtuous slaves. If they are in need, God will, by His grace, relieve them. GOD is Bounteous, Most Wise. [ Surah An-Noor, Ayat: 32 ]

Umar ibn al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him) used to say that it is strange for a person not to look for abundance in marriage. Because Allah Himself has said, “If they are in need, Allah will relieve them in His grace.”

 Twelfth Amal: To turn to Allah in times of need and to make du’a to Him. It is necessary to make du’a to Allah in order to get sustenance and eliminate deprivation. Because he accepted the prayer. And Allah is the Sustainer, and He is the Mighty, the Wise. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “ And your Lord says: Call on Me, I will answer you. [ Surah Al-Mu’min, verse 80 ]

In this verse, Allah has instructed us to make du’a and He has taken the responsibility of accepting it. As long as there is no obstacle in the way of accepting it. Such as making obligatory arguments, engaging in haraam activities, eating haraam food or wearing haraam clothes, etc., and delaying the confession. The supplication to Allah can be said: “O Sustainer, give me sustenance, You are the best Sustainer. O Allah, I ask You for a pure and abundant sustenance. O that being, in spite of the slope of charity, whose treasures are not diminished. O Allah, make me sufficient from your haraam with your halal and by your mercy become sufficient from others besides you. O Allah, make me satisfied with the sustenance you have given me. And bless what you have given me. ”

If one seeks refuge in Allah from the needy in times of need and seeks abundance from Him, his deprivation will surely be relieved and his sustenance will be increased. Narrated by Abdullah ibn Mas’ood radiallahu anhu, the Prophet said: ” Whoever is falling due, then the man was handed over to the (lack durikarane are dependent on humans), it is not a lack of forgiveness. On the other hand, if he falls into poverty and relies on Allah for its remedy, Allah will soon provide him with sustenance. ”[Tirmidhi: 2698; Musnad Ahmad: 4217]

Thirteen Amal: To forsake sins, to be steadfast in the religion of Allah, and to do good deeds. Abandonment of sins, steadfastness in the religion of Allah and doing good deeds – all these pave the way for sustenance as can be inferred from the above verses. But above all, we must remember that we did not come to live in the world forever. Therefore, the world should not be given priority and the Hereafter should be given priority and priority. Seeing our condition in Eden, Allah says: “Rather, you are giving priority to the life of this world. But the Hereafter is better and more lasting. [Surah Al-A’la, verses: 17-18]

And the liberation and eternal peace of the hereafter, whose main goal should be to try to be a little satisfied without crying for Rizik. For example, came in the Hadith, narrations of Abdullah ibn Amr ibn asa radiallahu reported: The Messenger of Allah said: ” The man who embraces Islam and the successful dharane her life (lack is not luxury), and Allah is sufficient mental competency has been He also satisfied her with what he had given her. ”[Muslim: 2463; Tirmizi: 2348; Ahmed: 6562]

Finally, I pray to Allah, may He grant us the tawfiq to be enterprising and successful in earning sustenance and halal by acquiring these means. May He give you abundance in sustenance and earning.

Amen !!

It is acceptable to show it, because there are several statements in the Qur’an and Sunnah on this subject. [Fatawa Noor Alad-Darbi (Interpretation of Hadith and its rules.)
