4 Dua For Rizq And Wealth In Arabic Text And Meaning in English

As human beings, we are always in need of rizq (sustenance), whether it be in the form of food, shelter, money, or any other essential resources. It is only natural to seek out ways to ensure that our needs are met and that we are able to sustain ourselves and our families.


In Islam, one of the most powerful and effective ways to seek rizq is through supplication, specifically through the practice of making dua for rizq.

Dua For Rizq After Fajr

The Dua for provision (rizq) after fajr prayer is in Arabic text is:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ عِلْماً نَافِعاً وَرِزْقاً طَيِّباً وَعَمَلاً مُتَقَبَّلاً


Allahumma inni as’aluka ‘Ilman naafi’an, wa rizqan tayyiban, wa ‘amalan mutaqabbalan.


Meaning in English

The meaning of the Dua of rizq in English is: O Allah, I ask You for beneficial knowledge, a good provision, and accepted good deeds.

Dua of rizq

This Dua was narrated from Umm Salamah, that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to say it after Fajr prayer. Source: Sunan Ibn Majah 925

As you can see, it is a dua that is general in meaning and includes earnings from business as well as from farming, employment or manufacturing.

This is how the Sunnah is in du’aa’s that are concise in wording and comprehensive in meaning.

The second thing asked in this hadith is good provision. His saying: (good sustenance) also indicates that sustenance is of two types: good and bad, and Allah Almighty does not accept anything but good.


And the Almighty said: O you who have believed, eat of the good things that we have provided you with.”

One of the greatest reasons for answering supplications is good food. Halal and Allah-pleasing provision is considered good provision.

Haram income is anything that is harmful to a person’s life and afterlife, and is a reason for refusing to take dua.


Good provision comprises anything that brings a person closer to Allah, such as reciting the Qur’an with concentration, remembering Allah with a present heart, increasing a person’s Iman, having a devout spouse and offspring, and so on.

Duaa For Rizq In Arabic

اَللَّهُمَّ اِغْفِرْ لِي وَارْحَمْنِي وَاهْدِنِي وَعَافِنِي وَارْزُقْنِي


Allahumma-ighfir li, warhamni, wa-hdini, wa ‘afini, warzuqni.


O Allah! Forgive me, have mercy on me, guide me, guard me against harm and provide me with sustenance and salvation.

Rizq dua

Provide me with sustenance means provision which sustains the body such as food, drink, clothing, shelter and others, and the provision which sustains the mind such as beneficial knowledge and righteous deeds.

This supplication encompasses both forms of sustenance. There are two types of provison: that which sustains the body and that which sustains the mind.

So when one says, “provide me…”, he is beseeching Allah for both forms.

Dua For Wealth And Rizq

اللَّهُمَّ أكْثِرْ مَالِي، وَوَلَدِي، وَبَارِكْ لِي فِيمَا أعْطَيْتَنِي وَأطِلْ حَيَاتِي عَلَى طَاعَتِكَ، وَأحْسِنْ عَمَلِي وَاغْفِرْ لِي


Allaahumma akthir malee wa waladee wa barik lee fima a’taytanee, wa a’til hayatee ala daa’atik, wa ahsin amalee wagfir lee.

Meaning in English

O Allah, increase my wealth and offspring, and bless me in what You have given me. And direct my life to Your obedience and rectify my actions and forgive me my sins.

Dua For Rizq and wealth

This Dua is an indicative of the supplication offered by the prophet Muhammad SAW for Anas Bin Malik Radiyallahu anhu where he stated:

4. Dua to Pay Off Your Debt

اللّهُمَّ اكْفِني بِحَلالِكَ عَنْ حَرامِك وَأَغْنِني بِفَضْلِكَ عَمَّنْ سِواك


Allahumma akfini bi halallika ‘an haraamika, wa aghnini bi fadlika ‘amman siwaka.


O Allah! Provide me with lawful (Halal) livelihood, adequate to my needs instead of the unlawful (Haram), and make me suffice with Your graces needing nothing from anyone else.

Rizq dua

It was narrated from ‘Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) that a mukatib (slave who had entered into a contract of manumission) came to him and said:

“I am unable to pay off my manumission; help me.” He said: “Shall I not tell you some words which the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) taught me? And if you have debt like the mountain of Seer, Allah will pay it off for you.

Narrated by al-Tirmidhi (3563); classed as hasan (sound) by al-Albani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.

It is mustahabb (recommended) for you to ask Allah for what you need by name, using whatever simple words and phrases Allaah enables you to say.

So you may say for example: O Allaah, help me in my business, or O Allaah, bless me in my business, or O Allaah, make me independent of means so that I have no need of that which is haraam, or decree for me therein that which is good and makes me independent of means… and so on.

More important than the wording of the dua is sincerity in dua, focusing properly and turning to Allaah fully, for Allaah does not look at the eloquence of the words, rather He looks at what is in the heart of sincerity, humility and longing for His mercy.

From this you may know that saying du’aa’ in languages other than Arabic is also permissible, if the du’aa’ is general in meaning and was not narrated in specific words in the Qur’aan or Sunnah. Source: IslamQA

Ways To Increase Rizq (Provision) in Islam

There are some means of increasing provision that are prescribed in Islam, which we shall highlight here, so as to adopt the means that are prescribed and warn against innovations in religion. These include:

1. Istighfaar (praying for forgiveness)

Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):

“I said (to them): Ask forgiveness from your Lord; Verily, He is Oft-Forgiving; He will send rain to you in abundance; And give you increase in wealth and children, and bestow on you gardens and bestow on you rivers”

Surah Nooh 71: verses 10-12

2. Upholding ties of kinship

Al-Bukhaari (2067) and Muslim (2557) narrated from Anas ibn Maalik (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said:

“Whoever would like his rizq (provision) to be increased and his life to be extended, should uphold the ties of kinship.”

An-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

his rizq (provision) to be increased” means to be expanded and made abundant or, it was said, to be blessed (barakah).

3. Giving a great deal of charity

Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Say: Truly, my Lord enlarges the provision for whom He wills of His slaves, and (also) restricts (it) for him, and whatsoever you spend of anything (in Allah’s Cause), He will replace it. And He is the Best of providers”

Surah Saba’ 34: verse 39

Muslim (2588) narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Charity does not decrease wealth.”

An-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

They (the scholars) mentioned two meanings of this hadeeth, one of which is that (the wealth) will be blessed (as a result of giving charity) and harm will be warded off from it, so the apparent decrease will be compensated for by means of hidden blessing (barakah).

This is something that is well known from experience. The second is that even if it appears to be decreased outwardly, there will be compensation for that in the reward that results from it, and it will be increased manifold.

4. Being mindful of Allah and fearing Him (taqwa)

Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And whosoever fears Allaah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). # And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine”

Surah al-Talaaq 65: verses 2-3

5. Performing Hajj and ‘Umrah often, following one with the other

At-Tirmidhi (810) narrated that ‘Abdullah ibn Mas‘ood said: The Messenger of Allah (sa) said:

“Make the Hajj and ‘Umrah follow each other closely, for they remove poverty and sins as the bellows removes the dross of iron, gold and silver, and an accepted Hajj brings no less a reward than Paradise.”

It was classed as saheeh by al-Albaani.

May Allah SWT make it easy for us all, increase us in halal rizq and shower us with barakah.
