No Fear of Poverty

When Abdullah bin Mas`ood (radiyallahu anhu) was on his death bed, Uthmaan (radiyallahu anhu) who was the khalifah at that time asked him if he should fix a monthly allowance from the public treasury to assist his daughters after his demise. Abdullah bin Mas`ood (radiyallahu anhu) replied: “Do you fear poverty on my daughters? I have instructed them to recite Surah Waaqi`ah every night, and I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) saying: “The one who recites Surah Waaqi`ah every night will never experience poverty.” (Shu`abul Imaan #2267/ Usdul Ghaabah vol. 3, pg. 77).This was the hallmark in the lives of the Sahaabah (radiyallahu anhum) that they had firm conviction upon the words of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). Hence they practised on the teachings of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). Today we impress on our children the importance of degrees and professions.

While these are means of earning one’s livelihood, they have no guarantee. It is therefore necessary that we introduce our children towards the regular performance of salaah and daily recitation of the Quraan Majeed, the guaranteed means of drawing sustenance.

In one narration Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) instructs us to teach our women Surah Waaqi`ah as it is a surah that brings in wealth (Dailami #4005). Women in particular have been instructed to recite Surah Waaqi`ah since they very easily succumb to the thoughts and fear of poverty.

Once Faatimah (radiyallahu anha) had requested Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) for a slave (servant) to assist her with all the difficult chores of the home. Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said to her and Ali (radiyallah anhu): “Should I not show you something better than what you asked for? When you retire to your bed, recite Subhanallah 33 times, Alhamdulillah 33 times and Allahu-Akbar 34 times. This is better for you than a servant” (Saheeh Bukhari #3705).

Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “After the Taqwa (fear) of Allah Ta`ala, there is no favour that a believer may receive better than a pious wife. If he instructs her she obeys him, if he looks towards her, she brings delight to him, if  he takes an oath for her to do something she carries it out and if he is away from her (on a journey, etc.) she acts in good faith regarding her personal self and his wealth” (Ibnu Maajah #1857).

Let us speak to Allah Ta`ala in Du'aa

In this era of advanced technology we easily communicate with the entire world. Yet, when last did we communicate with the creator of the world? We do speak to mankind about our problems. When will we speak to our All - Hearing Allah, the only Being who can resolve our problems?

If we ask mankind of our needs, we are humiliated and are regarded as beggars. However, if we ask Allah for our needs, then we are honoured and we become the beloved of Allah Ta`ala. Our duty is to turn to Allah Ta`ala in Du`aa (supplication) over and over again. Allah Ta`ala in his divine wisdom will definetly answer our Du`aas in unique ways. At times our minds are so anchored in wanting to see our Du`aas answered in a certain way, that we completely fail to see and appreciate that our Du`aas have been answered but in many other ways. Allah Ta`ala knows best when to give us, how to give us and how much to give us. All we need to do is to keep on asking Allah Ta`ala.

   

Two Special Verses

Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Indeed Allah Ta`ala has concluded Surah Baqarah with two verses. I have been given these two from his treasure which is beneath the throne. Therefore learn them and teach them to your women for verily it is a (means) of mercy and nearness (to Allah Ta`ala) and a Du`aa (supplication)” [ Daarimi #3390 ].

This Hadith outlines the virtue of the last two verses of Surah Baqarah. Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has instructed that our women should be taught these verses so that they too can enjoy its special blessings. By reciting these verses we will be showered with mercy, we will gain closeness to Allah Ta`ala and it is a beautiful Du`aa.
