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)
