Duas to increase rizq, wealth & sustenance: One of Allah’s (SWT) many beautiful names is Al-Razaaq (The Provider/The Bestower of Sustenance. He is the sole Creator of all nourishment. In Surah Al-Anaam, Ayah 151, He says:
“We provide for you.”
Through these words, Allah Almighty mentions that “Rizq” or provisions are ascribed to Him alone, and He bestows whom He wills.
When seeking provisions from our Lord, we must remember the Tawakkul of birds. Every morning they fly out on empty stomachs, searching for food, and each evening they come back with their stomachs filled, simply because Allah promises to provide necessities for all His beings. When in search for Rizq, we must remember to practice that which is lawful. Earning wealth through unlawful means is like waging war with Allah (SWT).
How to Increase Halal Rizq?
Musa (AS) did not know that Allah (SWT) would split the Red Sea for him. What he did know was that Allah Almighty was not going to abandon him. In Chapter Talaq of the Holy Quran, Ayah 3, our Lord promises to provide us with that we cannot imagine. In short, we must place our utmost trust in His miraculous nature of help to receive beyond our imaginations. He also talks about the reward of contentment and peace in return for placing our faith in Him.
“….and Allah is sufficient for him.”
Here, it means that there is nothing more to seek when you are satisfied with what Allah (SWT) has blessed you with. We must remember that Allah’s doors of blessings are always open for us. The right way to ask Allah (SWT) to increase our provisions is through the power of dua while maintaining a sense of trust and remembering that Allah is sufficient for us.

Example from Rabia Basri’s story
Rabia Basri had a few guests visiting her when the maid came and informed her of a knock on the door. A man had come in with some bread loaves. Rabia asked the maid to count the loaves, after which the maid informed that there were nine loaves. Rabia told the maid, “no, this is not my share. Return it to the man and tell him to leave.” Then there was a second knock, the maid again came and informed of 9 bread loaves. Rabia Basri again repeated that it wasn’t her share. Shortly after, there was a third knock with the same count of bread loaves, after which Rabia Basri again repeated what she had said earlier: it wasn’t her share. When the maid inquired why she wasn’t taking the bread loaves, Rabia explained that she had a bread loaf in the morning, but when a beggar came, she gave her share of bread to the beggar for the sake of Allah (SWT). And, as Allah promises:
“Man jaa’aa bil hasanati fa lahu asharu amthaaliha”
That whoever brings forth a good deed, he will be rewarded ten times like it.
The nine loaves did not belong to her. After hearing this, Rabia Basri’s maid apologized and confessed that she had been keeping the 10th loaf for herself as she was hungry too, and in reality, there had been ten loaves each time. This story is a perfect example of Tawakkul in Allah.

The Holy Prophet (PBUH) once said, “a man is deprived of provisions because of the sins that he commits” (Ibn Maajah, 4022). Therefore, when seeking Allah’s help in increasing your Rizq, you must also pray to Him to seek refuge from engaging in sins.

Allah (SWT) places immense importance on the idea of repentance. Holy Prophet (PBUH) used to make Istighfar frequently. In Surah Al-Zaariyaat, Ayah 17-18, our Lord says,

Hazrat Nuh (AS) advised his people to seek Allah’s (SWT) forgiveness so that He sends down abundant rain from the sky, gives them wealth and sons, and provides gardens and rivers.
Therefore, all believers must seek forgiveness for their sins and recite Istighfar to benefit from Allah’s limitless blessings.
