Is this du’a from Hadith?

For plentiful rizq (sustenance) and total independence recite the following du’a one hundred (100) times after ‘Isha and 100 times after Fajr.

اللهم كما صنت وجهي عن السجود لغيرك فصن وجهى عن المسئلة لغيرك

Allahumma kama sunta wajhi ‘anis sujudi li ghayrika fasun wajhi ‘anil mas-alati li ghayrika

“O Allah, as you have preserved my face [honour] by safeguarding me from making sajdah to others, do save my face [honour] by safeguarding me from stretching my hands before others.”



I have not come across this in Hadith as a du’a/prescription for sustenance. This seems to be based on experience. There is no harm in reciting this as long as one does not deem it Sunnah.

Imams Ahmad, Waki’, Sufyan Thawri and Mansur ibnul Mu’tamir (rahimahumullah) would recite this as a general du’a. See here


See here for Prophetic guidance/deeds for increase and barakah in sustenance.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
