Allah Almighty is the creator and provider of everything in the universe. Sometimes we have a perfect degree and a well-written resume, which means to apply for a particular job; still, we fail to achieve our targets and get the dream job we want. Then comes the point when one might ask about some Surah or dua to get a job. Muslims believe that Allah Almighty is the creator and provider of everything in the universe. So we should rely on Him alone to achieve our aims.
Many people are suffering for jobs and earnings despite having good education and talent. The different Quranic verses and Duas are here to seek help from Allah Almighty. Indeed, He is the best Provider.
فَسَقَىٰ لَهُمَا ثُمَّ تَوَلَّىٰٓ إِلَى ٱلظِّلِّ فَقَالَ رَبِّ إِنِّى لِمَآ أَنزَلْتَ إِلَىَّ مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَقِيرٌ
So he watered [their flocks] for them; then he went back to the shade and said, “My Lord, indeed I am, for whatever good You would send down to me, in need.” (AlQuran 28:24)
Beneficial Tips For Finding Job
One should strive both physically and spiritually in the search for earnings.
Physical effort means
- Getting a good education
- Preparing your resume
- Seeking a job
- And organizing yourself for an interview.
Spiritual energy means relying on Allah alone, putting your trust in Him, hoping for His mercy, and making prescribed Duas for finding a job.
Here are some tips which might be beneficial in finding a job:
Tawakkul – Putting Your Trust in Allah
Tawakkul is to follow the means: you try finding a job here and there, you acquire a higher degree, you get your internship, talk to people, etc. Then, while trusting Allah Almighty, He has saved something better than you expect. But you don’t know what Allah has reserved for you; that’s why you keep trying. One important thing doesn’t to get depressed or disheartened and start thinking that failure is destiny for me. It is reported in a Hadith that Allah writes our provisions when we are still in our mother’s womb.
Narrated Anas bin Malik: The Prophet said,
“At every womb, Allah appoints an angel who says, ‘O Lord! A drop of semen, O Lord! A clot. O, Lord! A little lump of flesh.” Then if Allah wishes (to complete) its creation, the angel asks, (O Lord!) Will it be a male or female, a wretched or a blessed, and how much will his provision be? And what will his age be?’ So all that is written while the child is still in the mother’s womb.” (Bukhari, Hadith 315)
Taqwa – Fearing Allah
Taqwa means to always be on guard and to protect yourself from sins. If one can attain taqwa in their lives, then Insha’Allah, Allah Almighty, will quickly help them find the necessary job.
Allah says in the Holy Quran:
وَمَن يَتَّقِ ٱللَّهَ يَجْعَل لَّهُۥ مَخْرَجًا وَيَرْزُقْهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَحْتَسِبُ
“And whoever fears Allah – He will make for him a way out And will
The Quran prescribes that the best means of increasing provision is to enhance Istighfaar. Keep asking Allah for forgiveness. What is the relationship between Astaghfaar and getting a halal job? Allah says in the Holy Quran:
فَقُلْتُ ٱسْتَغْفِرُوا۟ رَبَّكُمْ إِنَّهُۥ كَانَ غَفَّارًا
And said, ‘Ask forgiveness of your Lord Indeed, He is ever a Perpetual Forgiver.
يُرْسِلِ ٱلسَّمَآءَ عَلَيْكُم مِّدْرَارًا
He will send [rain from] the sky upon you in [continuing] showers
The wording of Astaghfaar is mentioned in many ahadith. One can recite this dua a hundred times in a day:
أَسْـتَـغْـفِـرُ اللهَ وَ أَ تُـوبُ إِ لَـْيهِ
astaghfirullah Wa Atubu Elahi,
“I seek forgiveness to Allah and repent towards Him.”
Ibn Umar (RA) narrated that We would count what the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) would say in one sitting one hundred times.
رَبِّ اغْفِرْ لِي وَتُبْ عَلَيَّ إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيمُ
Rab-bigh-firlee wa Tubb alayya Innaka anta at-Tawaabu ar-Raheem.
‘O my Lord, forgive me and accept my repentance; indeed, You are the One who forgives and most merciful.’ (Abu Dawood, Tirmidhi)
Dua after the Fajr Salaah
Prophet PBUH taught us a beautiful dua to be recited after the Fajr salah for increasing provision or getting halal means of earning.
Narrated from Umm Salamah (RA) that the Prophet (Peace be upon Him) used to say after Fajr prayer:
“Allahumma inni as aluka rizqan tayyiban wa ‘ilman naafi‘an wa ‘amalan mutaqabbalan
(O Allah, I ask You for a good (halal) provision, beneficial knowledge, and accepted deeds).” [Ahmad, Ibn Maajah]
Best Dua in the Holy Quran
One of the most comprehensive dua mentioned in the Holy Quran that suffices all your needs in the Dunya and Akhirah is:
رَبَّنَآ ءَاتِنَا فِى ٱلدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِى ٱلْءَاخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ ٱلنَّارِ
Rabbana atina fid-dunya hasanatan wa fil ‘akhirati hasanatan waqina ‘adhaban-nar
But among them is he who says, “Our Lord, give us in this world [that which is] good and in the Hereafter [that which is] good and protect us from the punishment of the Fire.”
(Surah Baqarah: Verse 201)
And Recite the following verse if you are worried about your job.
رَبِّ إِنِّى لِمَآ أَنزَلْتَ إِلَىَّ مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَقِيرٌ
“My Lord, indeed I am, for whatever good You would send down to me, in need.”
Keep on reciting this dua for finding a job.
Sending Peace and Blessings Upon the Prophet (PBUH)
We should send peace and blessings upon the Prophet (PBUH) by reciting Durood. Since you have plenty of free time, increase sending graces upon the Prophet (PBUH), and Allah will deliver you out of your worries. Inshaa Allah
اَللّٰھُمَّ صَلِّ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَّعَلٰٓی اٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ کَمَا صَلَّیْتَ عَلٰٓی اِبْرَاھِیْمَ وَعَلٰٓی اٰلِ اِبْرَاھِیْمَ اِنَّکَ حَمِیْدٌ مَّجِیْدٌ اَللّٰھُمَّ بَارِکْ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَّعَلٰٓی اٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ کَمَا بَارَکْتَ عَلٰٓی اِبْرَاھِیْمَ وَعَلٰٓی اٰلِ اِبْرَاھِیْمَ اِنَّکَ حَمِیْدٌ مَّجِیْدٌ
allahumma salli ala muhammadiw wa ala aali muhammadin kamaa sallaita ala ibrahima wa ala aali ibrahima innaka hamidum majid. allahumma baarik ala muhammadiw wa ala aali muhammadin kamaa baarakta ala ibrahima wa ala aali ibrahima innaka hamidum majid.
“O Allah, let Your Blessings come upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, as you have blessed Ibrahim and his family. Truly, You are Praiseworthy and Glorious. Allah, bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, as you have blessed Ibrahim and his family. Truly, You are Praiseworthy and Glorious”.
You were giving in a small amount of donation or whatever you may afford even though you are broke. Giving charity and facilitating others in fulfilling their needs would assist you in finding a job. It will make job searching easy for you.
Narrated by Abu Hurairah (RA) that the Prophet (PBUH) said:
“Allah will aid a servant (of His) so long as the servant aids his brother.”
Another important thing is to ask righteous people to pray for you. That, too, will help a lot. May Allah deliver every believing person out of this condition and provide them with a halal job and real income.
