Allah Almighty is the creator and provider of all the things in the universe.

Sometimes we have a perfect degree, a well-written resume, means to apply for a particular job; still, we fail to achieve our targets and get the dream job we want. The point when one might ask about some Surah or dua for finding a job. As Muslims, we believe that Allah Almighty is the creator and provider of all the things in the universe. So we should rely on Him alone to achieve our aims.

Beneficial Tips

One should strive both physically and spiritually in the search for an earning. Physical effort means:

  • getting a good education
  • preparing your resume
  • seeking a job
  • 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 putting your trust in Allah Almighty that He has saved something for you better than you expect. But you don’t know what Allah has saved for you; that’s why you keep on trying. One important thing doesn’t get depressed or dishearten and start thinking that failure is destined for me. It is reported in a Hadith that our provision is written down 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

Allah says in the Holy Quran:

“And whoever fears Allah – He will make for him a way out And will provide for him from where he does not expect.”  (Quran, Surah Talaq: 2-3)

Taqwa means to always be on guard and to protect yourself from sins. If one can attain taqwa in their lives then Inshaa Allah; Allah will help them find the necessary job easily.learn_Quran, Quran_courses_online, learn_tajwid, learn_tajweed, new_muslim

Masnoon Duas for Finding a Job


The Quran prescribes us that the best means of increasing provision is to enhance Istighfaar. Keep asking Allah for forgiveness. What is the relationship between istighfaar and getting a halal job? Allah says in the Holy Quran:

‘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 Nuh: Verse 10-12)

The wording of istighfaar is mentioned in many ahadith. One can say astaghfirullah or astaghfirullah Hashim wa atubu Elahi, or recite this dua hundred times in a day:

Ibn Umar (RA) narrated: ‘We would count that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) would say in one sitting one hundred times:
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 Salah

Prophet PBUH taught us a beautiful dua to be recited after the Fajr salah for increasing provision or for getting halal means of earning.

Narrated from Umm Salamah (RA) that the Prophet (Peace of 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:

Rabbana atina fid-dunya hasanatan wa fil ‘akhirati hasanatan waqina ‘adhaban-nar
“Our Lord! Give us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and save us from the torment of the Fire!” (Surah Baqarah: Verse 201)

Keep on reciting this dua for finding a job.

Sending Peace and Blessings Upon the Prophet (PBUH)

Sending peace and blessings upon the Prophet (PBUH) by reciting Durood. Since you are having plenty of free time so increase sending blessings upon the Prophet (PBUH), Allah will deliver you out of your worries. Inshaa Allah

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”.

Giving Charity

Giving in a small amount of donation or whatever you may afford even though you are broke. By 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 a halal job and real income. May Allah make it easy for every Muslim to find a job. Keep looking for a job and keep on making dua for finding a job. Ameen.
