Many things are mentioned in the sayings of the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) and the Ahlul Bayt (a.s.) for increase in Rizq (sustenance) and Barakat in livelihood. For instance:- a) Being very good to parents and relatives. b) Reciting Namaz-e-Subh (Night Prayers of 11 Rak’at, which is 4 Namaz of 2 Rak’ats each, followed by a Namaz of Shaf’a of 2 Rak’ats, and a Namaz of Witr of one Rak’at. If one is unable to recite all, then recite just 2 Rak’ats of Namaz of Shafa. One Rak’at of Namaz of Witr, and if one is not able to recite even that, then recite just One Rak’at Namaz of Witr. c) Reciting Surah Waqea every night. d) Reciting Isteghfaar (seeking forgiveness) as much as you can. e) Reciting Salawaat (Allahumma Salle Ala Mohammed Wa Aale Mohammed) as much as you can, but not less than 100 times daily, and 100 times on Friday and its night (Shab-e-Jumah). f) Being busy in Taqeebat after Morning Prayer during the time between dawn and sunrise. “Taqeebat means recitation of Supplementary Prayers, Duas, Tasbeehs, and the Holy Quran. g) Giving Sadaqa (Charity). Imam Jafar-e-Sadiq (a.s.) has advised to give Sadaqa for increase in Rizq and Barakat. h) Repeating the great names of Allah (s.w.t) many times like: Ya Razzak, Ya Wahhab, Ya Kareem, Ya Raheem, Ya Jawaad, These are just some examples and there are many more in the detailed books. No doubt doing any of these things will lead to great benefit if it is done with sincerity, dedication and submission to Allah (s.w.t.). Sayyed Mohammed Musawi
