The Wazaif of blessings in livelihood

It is not bad to want to earn wealth for survival while trusting in Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ, to be a beneficiary of others, not to be a burden to anyone, and to wish for employment. Being motivated by such desires, Reciting Awraad and Wazaif along with the constant efforts for one’s livelihood is the way of righteous people.

So consider the following three Wazaif for divine blessings in livelihood. However, please remember that the pious saints of Islam رَحْمَةُ اللّٰهِ عَلَيْهُم have said: ‘Without Salah, any source of livelihood cannot bring about the blessings in sustenance. (Jahannam kay Khatraat, pp. 192)

Three Wazaif for divine blessings in livelihood

1.Sayyiduna Sahl Bin Sa`d Saa’idi رَضِىَ اللّٰهُ عَـنْهُ has narrated that a person had come to the court of Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم and complained about his poverty and destitution. The Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said to him: ‘When you enter your house, offer Salaam even if there is no one, and then send Salaam to me and recite ‘قُلْ ھُوَاﷲ once. Thus, this person did the same and Allah Almighty made him so rich that he began to give away to his neighbours and relatives. (Tafseer-e-Qurtubi, vol. 10, pp. 5599)

2. ‘یَا مَلِکُ’ ninety times, if a poor reads it every day, اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه he will get rid of poverty. (Madani Panj Surah, pp. 246)

3.A companion of the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم came to the court of Blessed Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم and humbly submitted, ‘The world has turned its back on me’. Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم replied, ‘Do you not remember that Tasbih (words or phrases for the glorification of Allah)? The words for glorification of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ assigned to the angels and by the blessings of that livelihood is provided. The whole world will come to you with humiliation, say 100 times with Dawn ‘سُبْحٰنَ اللہِ وَبِحَمْدِہٖ سُبْحٰنَ اللہِ الْعَظِیْمِ وَ بِحَمْدِہٖ اَسْتَغْفِرُ اللہ. Just after a week that companion of the Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم came to the Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم and said, ‘O Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم! The world has come to me in abundance; I wonder where to put that all!’

Method of reading this Tasbih

The time of reading this Tasbih is dawn till the congregation of Fajr Salah. If the congregation Salah begins, first join the congregation, and then complete the Tasbih afterwards. If you could not read it before the congregation in any day, read it before sunrise. (Malfuzaat-e-A’la Hadrat, pp. 128; summarized)
