Great Allah arranges sustenance for the pure servant. However, no one knows where Rizik is written. There is no substitute for trying. Everyone expects a good job for a good Rizik. However, it is not so easy to get a golden deer called job. Many people are choosing the path of suicide as they are not disappointed with their jobs even after hundreds of attempts.
But it would be wise not to despair and seek help from God Almighty. He understands all the sorrows of the monkey. This prayer was made by the Prophet Moses (peace be upon him) for the provision of good sustenance.
Lord, I did not send down to you any good from the poor.
Pronunciation: Rabbi Inni Lima- Anjalata Ilaya Min Khairin Fakir.
Meaning: O my Lord, I am indebted to you for the grace you send me. (Surat al-Qasas, verse 24)
Getting a good job has become a nightmare for many. Having to face various difficulties and obstacles. So the hope of getting a good and quality job should be prayed to Allah. I would like to observe his great adjectives and recite more and more daroods. One of the adjectives is-
Pronunciation: ‘Ya Wahhabu’
Meaning: Giver without any recompense.
Ulamaye Keram said, those who will do more of these deeds; May Allah bless their sustenance. If they have any shortcomings and needs, you will solve everything quickly.
The incident of the prayer of Musa (AS)
In the Holy Qur’an, Allah Ta’ala has discussed various issues with Musa (AS). In particular, Allah Ta’ala has discussed it the most in the Qur’an. There is a call to Allah to seek refuge in Him and to seek work. Here is a brief summary of the incident as described in the Holy Qur’an and Tafsir books:
In the wrath of Pharaoh, Moses fled from Egypt. He reached the town of Madain. There was no shelter or livelihood for him. Referring to that incident in the Qur’an, Allah Ta’ala said, ‘When he set out for Madyan; He said, “I hope my Lord will show me the straight path.” When he reached the edge of the well in Midian, he found a group of people near the well – who were busy watering the animals and saw two women behind them – they were tending their animals. He said, what is the matter with you? They said, “Unless the shepherds take their animals away, we will not be able to water our animals.” And our father is eighty years old. ‘(Surah Qasas: verses 22-23)
The way Musa (AS) got shelter and employment
In the next verse, Moses (peace be upon him) made a humble request to be dependent on Allah rather than work. Allah Ta’ala echoed that call of Musa (AS), ‘Then Musa made their (two women’s) animals drink water. Then he turned to the shadow and said, ‘O my Lord, I am indebted to you for the favor which You will bestow on me.’ (Surah Qasas, verse 24)
That means I need shelter, work and employment. And the work or livelihood that you will provide for me, I am dependent on the work or livelihood that you will provide for me.
The fact that this prayer is effective for getting a good job and good employment is proved by the incident described in the next verse. Allah said, ‘Then one of the two women came to him in a state of shame and said,‘ My father is calling you to pay for the water you have given to our animals. Then when Musa (peace be upon him) came to him and narrated all the incidents, the old man said, ‘Do not be afraid, you have escaped from the clutches of the unjust people. One of them (two women) said, O father! You hire him as a laborer. Surely, he (Moses) will be better as your servant, the one who is strong and faithful. ‘(Surah Qasas: verses 25-26)
The Prophet Moses (peace be upon him) thus obtained a good workplace, livelihood and shelter from God Almighty by praying to God and cooperating with others. Therefore, those who need a good job and workplace and employment – they should make every effort and seek the cooperation of Allah Almighty through these deeds.
May Allah Tayala grant us Tawfiq. Amen.
