Prayer To Find A Job

Sometimes we have a perfect degree, a well-written resume, means to apply for a particular job; still, we fail to achieve our targets and get the dream job we want.
The point when one might ask about some Surah or dua for finding a job. As Muslims, we believe that Allah Almighty is the creator and provider of all the things in the universe.
So we should rely on Him alone to achieve our aims.

One should strive both physically and spiritually in the search for an earning. Physical effort means:
- getting a good education

- seeking a job
- organizing yourself for an interview.

Here are some tips which might be beneficial in finding a job:
Tawakkul — Putting Your Trust in Allah
Tawakkul is to follow the means: you try finding a job here and there, you acquire a higher degree, you get your internship, talk to people, etc. Then while putting your trust in Allah Almighty that He has saved something for you better than you expect.
But you don’t know what Allah has saved for you; that’s why you keep on trying. One important thing doesn’t get depressed or dishearten and start thinking that failure is destined for me.
It is reported in a Hadith that our provision is written down when we are still in our mother’s womb:Narrated Anas bin Malik: The Prophet said, “At every womb Allah appoints an angel who says, ‘O Lord! A drop of semen, O Lord! A clot. O Lord! A little lump of flesh.
” Then if Allah wishes (to complete) its creation, the angel asks, (O Lord!) Will it be a male or female, a wretched or a blessed, and how much will his provisionbe? And what will his age be?’ So all that is written while the child is still in the mother’s womb.” (Bukhari, Hadith 315)
Taqwa – Fearing Allah
Allah says in the Holy Quran:
“And whoever fears Allah – He will make for him a way out And will provide for him from where he does not expect.” (Quran, Surah Talaq: 2-3)
Taqwa means to always be on guard and to protect yourself from sins. If one can attain taqwa in their lives then Inshaa Allah; Allah will help them find the necessary job easily.
The Quran prescribes us that the best means of increasing provision is to enhance Istighfaar. Keep asking Allah for forgiveness. What is the relationship between istighfaar and getting a halal job? Allah says in the Holy Quran:
‘Ask forgiveness from your Lord; Verily, He is Oft-Forgiving; ‘He will send rain to you in abundance; And give you increase in wealth and children, and bestow on you gardens and bestow on you rivers.’ (Surah Nuh: Verse 10-12)
The wording of istighfaar is mentioned in many ahadith. One can say astaghfirullah or astaghfirullah Hashim wa atubu Elahi, or recite this dua hundred times in a day:
Ibn Umar (RA) narrated: ‘We would count that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) would say in one sitting one hundred times:
Rab-bigh-firlee wa tubb alayya Innaka anta at-Tawaabu ar-Raheem.
‘O my Lord forgive me and accept my repentance indeed You are the One who forgives and most merciful.’ (Abu Dawood, Tirmidhi)
Dua for Finding a Job After the Fajr Salah
Prophet PBUH taught us a beautiful dua to be recited after the Fajr salah for increasing provision or for getting halal means of earning.
Narrated from Umm Salamah (RA) that the Prophet (Peace of be upon Him) used to say after Fajr prayer:
“Allahumma inni as aluka rizqan tayyiban wa ‘ilman naafi‘an wa ‘amalan mutaqabbalan
(O Allah, I ask You for a good (halal) provision, beneficial knowledge and accepted deeds).” [Ahmad, Ibn Maajah]
Best Dua in the Holy Quran for Finding Job
One of the most comprehensive dua mentioned in the Holy Quran that suffices all your needs in the Dunya and Akhirah is:
Rabbana atina fid-dunya hasanatan wa fil ‘akhirati hasanatan waqina ‘adhaban-nar
“Our Lord! Give us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and save us from the torment of the Fire!” (Surah Baqarah: Verse 201)
Keep on reciting this dua for finding a job.
Sending Peace and Blessings Upon the Prophet (PBUH)
Sending peace and blessings upon the Prophet (PBUH) by reciting Durood. Since you are having plenty of free time so increase sending blessings upon the Prophet (PBUH), Allah will deliver you your worries. Inshaa Allah
allahumma salli ala muhammadiw wa ala aali muhammadin kamaa sallaita ala ibrahima wa ala aali ibrahima innaka hamidum majid. allahumma baarik ala muhammadiw wa ala aali muhammadin kamaa baarakta ala ibrahima wa ala aali ibrahima innaka hamidum majid.
“O Allah, let Your Blessings come upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, as you have blessed Ibrahim and his family. Truly, You are Praiseworthy and Glorious. Allah, bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, as you have blessed Ibrahim and his family.
Truly, You are Praiseworthy and Glorious”.
Giving in a small amount of donation or whatever you may afford even though you are broke. By giving charity and facilitating others in fulfilling their needs would assist you in finding a job. It will make job searching easy for you.
Narrated by Abu Hurairah (RA) that the Prophet (PBUH) said:
“Allah will aid a servant (of His) so long as the servant aids his brother.”
Another important thing is to ask righteous people to pray for you. That too will help a lot. May Allah deliver every believing person this condition and provide them a halal job and real income. May Allah make it easy for every Muslim to find a job. Keep looking for a job and keep on making dua for finding a job. Ameen.

7 Prayers for Employment or Work
In the United States today, so many people are unemployed. Some are fearful of being laid off. Others wonder about promotions. Many are looking for better jobs. There are a number of issues facing our country today regarding employment. Here are 7 prayers that you can pray about specific needs in the workplace.
Prayer for Work
Most Merciful Father,
I’m at my wits end, Lord. I feel I have tried every avenue to find work and yet I have not gotten a single phone call about my applications that I have sent out. Lord, I want to provide for my family.
I want to make a steady income that can pay my rent/mortgage and provide meals for my spouse and children. Lord, you know what is best for me and I lay these burdens at your throne now.
You are good all of the time, Father, and I am placing my trust in you this day. I love you Lord! Amen
Jobs at Risk
You already know before I speak what I am going to say. Nothing I say is a surprise to You and yet You yearn for my voice daily. I love You, God, because You love me as Your own child. I bring you a huge burden today, Lord. My company is downsizing because they are losing money. O gracious Lord, my department was told about potential lay-offs. I plead with You now, Father.
Please keep my position safe. I am scared for my future, Lord. I pray for Your peace that truly passes all understanding. Give me an ease of mind as I continue to work at my job. Lord, if I am laid off, it is because You have allowed it and I pray that You would have another open door ready for me to walk through. You are King, Father, and I trust in Your will this day.
You have blessed me with so much, Father. I have a wonderful family and church family. I thank you for Your love and I must lay a burden at Your feet. Father, You know about the promotion that I may get. Lord, it would be a huge blessing to receive it. I am not putting my faith in money, Lord. My faith is in You only.
If You allow me this promotion, I will use it faithfully as You see fit. I will be responsible with it and pay off existing debts and I will continue to tithe at church. Father, I am giving this completely to You and whatever Your decision is, I will thank You because You are loving, gracious and generous even in poverty.
I love You, Abba Father. Amen
“While there are many problems facing us all at our jobs, we have one ultimate solution and that is to trust fully in God.”
I praise You because You love me in spite of all of my failures and weaknesses. You wash me in Your Word and clean my soul up more with each passage I read. Father, I bring You a burden this day. I feel I am stuck in a dead end job with no possibility of promotion. I am barely floating above water right now.
You have blessed me with other talents that I could potentially use in other career fields. Father, if You are willing, I pray for You to open a door to a different career for me. I would love to use the talents You have given me to provide for my family. Where You lead, I will follow.
I praise Your name, Lord! Amen
Am I Transparent?
Blessed be Your name always. You have set my feet on a solid rock, Jesus Christ. I thank You, Jesus, for Your bravery and love that saved me from my sins on the cross. I will praise You forever! Lord, I feel a doormat at work.
I have tried to promote ideas to better the work environment while cutting down on costs. Management usually pacifies me with words they will not follow through on. They say, “we will consider it” but I know they forget about me as soon as they walk away.
Father, You have provided me this job and I am grateful for it. I pray that you will soften the hearts of the leadership there. I don’t even care if they reject every idea of mine, Father. I just want to them to actually care and consider my suggestions.
I just want to be seen as a person and not an object to make them money. I love You, Lord and I will follow You wherever You lead. I love You! Amen
Struggles with Co-workers
You are abounding in grace and mercy for Your children. I am so thankful that You call me Your child. Lord, work is getting stressful because of the environment I am in. Father, there are many people who hate You there and they make my life miserable because they know that I love You.
I trust in James as it says, “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds.” (James 1:2) I realize the benefit of being persecuted for believing in Jesus and I gladly accept whatever comes my way. Lord, I pray that You would soften the hearts of my co-workers. I will keep planting seeds, Lord.
I pray that they will let you water them. I love you, Father. Amen
Oh Merciful Father,
My company has lost a great man to a tragic accident and his life was taken from him. Father, many people at work really loved this man and everyone is lost right now. Father, I pray for strength while I am grieving.
Lord, use me to show Your love to all of those hurting at my job. I want to be the light that shines in the darkness, Father. I really need Your strength though. Carry me, Lord, as I help carry others through this difficult time.
You are my strength when I am weak, Lord. I love You, Father. Amen
While there are many problems facing us all at our jobs, we have one ultimate solution and that is to trust fully in God. God knows what is best for us in all circumstances. I pray that you will trust in God fully with your employment burdens, wants and needs as you continue to live a life worthy of the calling. God bless you all.
