Question: i have been unemployed for about a year now and have no source of income.  i pray at least 5 times a day do Wazifa of Surah muzzamil and Surat waqiah on daily bases that is why maybe i am getting cared for however i need to earn since i am Mashallah of good health. i also did Istikhara of whether i should start my own business or still looking for employment as all my attempts for employment turned to be futile and after i got a dream i was told that i should do my own business of which i got an offer which is still hanging.can i therefore have some advice from you what am I doing wrong that things are not working on Rizq for me?Is this a phase from Allaah Ta’ala. Is this is a transition phase or is my Ibadaah wrong?

kindly let me know

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


Sustenance is from Allaah Ta’ala. Allaah Ta’ala will grant you with an employment when it is right for you. Many a times Allaah Ta’ala puts means in place for us to become closer to him. Think of this as a means for you to become closer with your creator. Keep on trying and never lose hope in the mercy of Allaah Ta’ala. Many a times the help of Allaah Ta’ala manifests itself in extraordinary ways. Imaan demands that we have total conviction that our provider and sustainer is Allaah Ta’ala.

Allaah Ta’ala mentions in the Noble Qur’aan:

And in the sky is your sustenance, as (also) that which you are promised (that is to say your sustenance is pre-destined and recorded in the Lawh-Mahfooz). {Surah Dhaariyaat, Aayat: 22}

Gracious is Allaah to his servants; He gives sustenance to whom He pleases (and as much as he pleases) and He is the powerful the Mighty. {Surah Shuraa, Aayat: 19}

It is through experience that the Ulama have mentioned that whosoever recites the above Aayat i.e. Surah Shuraa, Ayaat 19, 70 times after Fajr Salaah, Allaah Ta’ala will make his sustenance easy for him.

And Allaah Ta’ala knows best
