10 ways to increase your Rizq
1) Gratitude and praising Allah
Allah Ta’ala says: “And remember when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you in favour; but if you show ingratitude, indeed, My punishment is severe.’” (Surah Ibrahim)
2) Taqwa (Piety)
Allah Ta’ala says, “And whosoever fears Allah, He will make a way out for him (from every difficulty) and He will provide for him from (sources) where he does not expect.” (Surah Talaaq)
3) Tawakkul (Trust and reliance upon Allah alone)
Sayyiduna Umar Radiyallahu anhu narrated that he heard the Prophet Salallahu alayhi wa sallam say, “If you trust in Allah as He should be trusted, He would surely provide for you as He provides for the birds. They set out in the morning with empty stomachs and return in the evening with full stomachs.” (Musnad Ahmed)
4) Repentance from sins
Nabi Nuh alayhis Salam said (to his people), ‘Ask forgiveness of your Lord, verily, He is Oft-Forgiving. He will send rain to you in abundance. And give you increase in wealth and children, and provide for you gardens and provide for you rivers.’ (Surah Nuh)
5) Worship of Allah
Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah Radiyallahu anhu narrated that the Prophet Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, “Allah says, O son of Adam! Free yourself for my worship, I will fill your heart with contentment and remove your poverty.” (Sunan Tirmidhi)
6) Avoiding Riba (Interest)
Allah Ta’ala destroys interest-bearing transactions (of Barakah) and grants an increase for charity. (Surah Baqarah)
7) Maintaining family ties
Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah Radiyallahu anhu narrated that the Prophet Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, “Whoever would like his provision to be abundant and his lifespan to be extended, let him maintain his family ties.” (Sahih Bukhari)
8) Give Sadaqah (Charity)
“The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah, is similar to a grain (of corn); it grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies for whom He wills.” (Surah Baqarah)
9) Honesty in trade and business transactions
Sayyiduna Hakim Ibn Hizaam Radiyallahu anhu narrated that the Prophet Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, “If two parties of a transaction are truthful and honest, then they will be blessed in their transaction. But, if they lied and hid (the defects of an item) then the blessings of their transaction are destroyed.” (Sahih Muslim)
10) Dua
Sayyiduna Anas Radiyallahu anhu reported, “The Prophet Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam supplicated for me to have every form of good and at the end of his supplication, he said, “O Allah, increase him in wealth, in children and bless him in them.” (Ṣaḥih Muslim)
