Foregoing one’s Salaah due to one’s job

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Any wazifa for wealth (rozi)? I do quran tilaawat every day in the morning without fail. But 5 time namaz I am not getting because my job is such that I am not getting time. Whenever I get time, I pray.


A: Namaaz is the most important pillar of Islam. The first thing a person will be questioned on the day of Qiyaamah will be in regard to namaaz. Severe grave warnings have been sounded in the Qur’an and Ahaadith for the one who forgoes his Salaah. Make sincere tawbah to Allah Ta’ala for missing out your Salaah in the past and commence performing Salaah immediately. Whilst engaged in your job when the time of Salaah enters, perform your Salaah. Similarly it is compulsory upon you to make qadha of the past Salaahs that you have missed. Merely making tawbah will not absolve you of the obligation of performing all the passed missed salaahs. Recite the following dau after your five daily Salaah. Allah Ta’ala will bless you with barakah in your rowzi:

اَللَّهُمَّ اكْفِنِيْ بِحَلَالِكَ عَنْ حَرَامِكَ وَأَغْنِنِيْ بِفَضْلِكَ عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
