Bahishti Zewar, Duas, Fiqh, Part 5-Principles of Business / Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

Hadith One: A mukâtab came to ‘Alî radiyallâhu ‘anhu and said: “I have become incapable of paying for my freedom. Please help me.” He replied: “I will show you a du‘â which Rasûlullâh sallallâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam taught me. Even if you have debts equal to mount Thubayr, Allah will fulfil your debts for you. The du‘â is:

Allâhummakfini bihalalika an harâmika wa aghnini bifadlika amman siwâk.

“O Allah (SWT), suffice me with lawful livelihood adequate to my needs instead of ill-gotten livelihood, and graciously grant me freedom from needing anything from anyone besides Yourself.” (Tirmidhi)

Note: Whoever recites this du’ Allah will assist him in repaying his debt even though it may be the size of Mount Sabir (A mountain in Yemen).
