Q: I am a mother of three children. My husband is in another country and I am jobless. I have applied so many places for jobs for the past four months. I have been looking and applying for jobs like crazy and I am not getting any replies back from the jobs. I pray 5 times daily Alhumdulliah. I feel like someone has done something on me and my children and my husband that we are apart from each other and nothing is working out for us. It feels like all the doors are closed on us please help me and give me a dua to help me in this hardship to get a job inshallah and my husband comes to me and my kids inshallah. I will pray for you for the rest of my life for helping me inshallah. Please reply soon I need help.
A: A Mu’min, in whichever condition he may be, should turn to Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى). The solutions of all problems lie in the hands of Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى). In order for one to receive the mercy of Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) and barkat in his life, one should ensure that he is leading a life according to the Sunnah and not displeasing Allah Ta’ala at any time. Be conscious of observing purdah, guarding the eyes and the tongue and performing the five daily Salaah on it’s prescribed time. Recite one thousand one hundred times يَا لَطِيْفُ after Esha Salaah with reciting eleven times durood shareef before and after. Similarly recite the following two duaas after your five daily salaah.
اَللّهُمَّ اكْفِنِي بِحَلَالِكَ عَنْ حَرَامِكَ وَأَغْنِنِي بِفَضْلِكَ عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّى أَسْأَلُكَ الْعَفْوَ وَالْعَافِيَةَ فِى دِينِى وَدُنْيَاىَ وَأَهْلِى وَمَالِى
We suggest that you seek financial assistance and help from the jamiat of your locality. May Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) assist you and remove your difficulties.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
