Dua for Business:

The best dua for business is the one which is made from the core of your heart. Dua doesn’t necessarily need to be in Arabic as Allah understands all languages.

How to Make Dua for Business?

1. Clear Your Intention:

You should first clear your intention about the purpose of your dua. Is it for Business startup, expansion, growth or overcoming failures? What is it that you want to supplicate for?

2. Praise Allah

Start your dua with the praise of Allah. Tell Him how great He is and how vulnerable and dependent you are on Him.

3. Say Your Dua

Tell Allah what exactly you want from Him relating to your business. Express your desire, wants and needs about business.

Below are some special duas from Quran and Hadith that you can also make relating to your business needs.

1. Dua for Success in Business:

This is the most phenomenal dua for getting success in business. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) used to make this dua every morning after the fajr prayer.

Arabic words: اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ عِلْمًا نَافِعًا وَرِزْقًا طَيِّبًا وَعَمَلاً مُتَقَبَّلاً

Roman words: Allaahumma innee as’aluka ‛ilman naafi‛an, warizqan ṭayyiban, wa ‛amalan mutaqabbalaa

English Translation: “O Allah, I ask You for beneficial knowledge, good provision, and deeds that will be accepted.” – Ibn Majah 925

If you’re earning through haram means, this dua may cause a decline in your business because it focuses on getting good and pure provision, which is an ultimate success and better for your world and hereafter.

2. Dua for Barakah in Business:

The dua of Prophet Moses (a.s) is best for getting barakah/ blessings in your business or work.

Arabic words: رَبِّ إِنِّي لِمَا أَنْزَلْتَ إِلَيَّ مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَقِيرٌ

Roman words: Rabbi innee limaaa anzalta ilaiya min khairin faqeer

English Translation: ” My Lord Indeed I am in need of whatever good you send down to me.” – Quran 28:24

Prophet Moses (a.s) made this dua when he was in the most vulnerable circumstances of his life. He was homeless, broke and migrated to another city, where he asked Allah for goodness with desperation. After this dua, blessings started coming into his life. He got a job, married and well-settled in a new city, and Allah just increased His blessings for Him.

How to get Barakah in your Business?

There are seven ways to get barakah in your business other than making dua. i.e.,

  1. Start your work with Bismillah. There is so much barakah in Allah’s name.
  2. Avoid Islamically unlawful business practices. They take away all the blessings from the business.
  3. Don’t deal in interest-based transactions. It eats away all barakah.
  4. Don’t cheat, lie, use foul language or enter into dishonest contracts. Income from such means is empty of blessings.
  5. Help others. Let it be your employees, colleagues, office staff etc. Prophet Musa (a.s) got blessed provision after he helped others.
  6. Give Sadqa (Charity). It comes back in multiplied version.
  7. Do business with Allah. Make Him your partner, and you’ll receive a trade gain that will never perish.

3. Dua for Profit in Business

There is an excellent dua to receive a profit in business. Allah says in the Quran, that if you’re grateful, I’ll surely increase you. This dua shows gratitude to Allah.

Arabic words: سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ وَلاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ وَلاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِاللَّهِ ‏

Roman words: Subhanallah walhamdulillah wala ilaha illallah wallahu akbar wala hawla wala quwwata illa billah

English words: “Glory be to Allah, and praise be to Allah, and there is no god but Allah, and Allah is most great, and there is no might and no strength but in Allah.” – Sunan Abi Dawud 832

4. Dua for Business Growth

The following dua is the best dua for business growth. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) taught this dua to his companions. It has some incredible effects.

Arabic Words: اللَّهمَّ اكْفِني بحلالِكَ عَن حَرَامِكَ، وَاغْنِني بِفَضلِكَ عَمَّن سِوَاكَ‏

Roman Words: Allahumm-akfini bihalalika ‘an haramika, wa aghnini bifadlika ‘amman siwaka

English Translation: “O Allah! Grant me enough of what You make lawful so that I may dispense with what You make unlawful, and enable me by Your Grace to dispense with all but You.” – Tirmidhi 3563

Surah for Business Growth:

The Quranic words of Surah al-Fatir from verses 29 – 30 can also be recited after the dua in total mindfulness of their meanings. Use odd numbers to recite them, as Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said in a hadith that Allah is one, and He likes all that is one. This could be a reason that the major acts of worship are odd-numbered.

“Indeed, those who recite the Book of Allah and establish prayer and spend [in His cause] out of what We have provided them, secretly and publicly, [can] expect a profit that will never perish.” (35:29) 

“That He may pay them their wages in full and give them [even] more, out of His Grace. Verily! He is OftForgiving, Most Ready to appreciate [good deeds and to recompense]. (35:30)

5. Dua for Business to Prosper

The words of Prophet Shuaib (a.s) can be used as a dua for business to prosper.

Allah Almighty mentioned the powerful words of Shuaib (a.s) in the Quran when he addressed his nation to stop cheating in trade and keep the rightful due from their earnings. Because any financial gain by fraud may look like abundance, while it is not the case with Allah.

Arabic words: وَمَا تَوْفِيقِىٓ إِلَّا بِٱللَّهِ ۚ عَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ وَإِلَيْهِ أُنِيبُ

Roman words: Wa maa tawfeeqeee illaa billaah; ‘alaihi tawakkaltu wa ilaihi uneeb

English Translation: “My success comes only through Allah. In Him I trust and to Him I turn.” (Surah Hud – 11:88)

Prophet Shuaib (a.s) said these words when his nation invited him to do the same and achieve unethical economic well-being. He was in denial of their business conduct and satisfied by his provision. Allah Almighty was so happy with him (a.s) that He added his words to the Quran. So, anyone who reads these words as dua will get abundance, satisfaction, and business prosperity, Insha’Allah. Allah is the best trustee.

6. Dua for Business Problems

If you’re dealing with business issues and the situation seems depressing to you, or if you’re not doing well with your trade, then do consider this dua of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). It is one of the finest duas for business problems to solve.

Arabic words: اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْلَمْتُ نَفْسِي إِلَيْكَ وَوَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِي إِلَيْكَ وَفَوَّضْتُ أَمْرِي إِلَيْكَ رَغْبَةً وَرَهْبَةً إِلَيْكَ وَأَلْجَأْتُ ظَهْرِي إِلَيْكَ لاَ مَلْجَأَ وَلاَ مَنْجَا مِنْكَ إِلاَّ إِلَيْكَ آمَنْتُ بِكِتَابِكَ الَّذِي أَنْزَلْتَ وَبِنَبِيِّكَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلْتَ 

Roman words: Allāhumma innī aslamtu nafsī ilaika wa wajjahtu wajhī ilaika, wa fawwaḍtu amrī ilaika, raghbatan wa rahbatan ilaika wa alja’tu ẓahrī ilaika, lā malja’a [wa lā manjā] minka illā ilaik. Āmantu bikitābikal-ladhī anzalta wa binabiyyikal-ladhī arsalt

English Translation:  “O Allah, verily, I submit myself to You, and I turn my face to You, and I entrust my affair to You, hoping in You and fearing in You. And I lay myself down depending upon You, there is no refuge from You except to You. I believe in Your Book which You have revealed, and in Your Prophet whom You have sent.” – Tirmidhi 3394

7. Dua for Business Protection

The evil eye is real. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) stated the harmful effects of the evil eye in many of his hadiths. This dua is exceptional to protect your business from any potential and needless harm.

Arabic words: بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الَّذِي لاَ يَضُرُّ مَعَ اسْمِهِ شَيْءٌ فِي الأَرْضِ وَلاَ فِي السَّمَاءِ وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ ثَلاَثَ مَرَّاتٍ فَيَضُرُّهُ شَيْءٌ “

Roman words: Bismillāh, alladhi lā yaḍurru ma`a ismihi shai’un fil-arḍi wa lā fis-samā’, wa huwas-Samī`ul `Alīm

English Translation: ” In the Name of Allah, who with His Name, nothing in the earth or the heavens can cause harm, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.” – Tirmidhi 3388
