In whose hands it is? And from whom it will be available? I know for certain that You have the knowledge and gives occasion to get the means of living.
It is You who, through your love and affection, determines and distributes according to need; originates and generates through your mercy. O Allah, therefore, send blessings of Muhammad and on his children, and O Lord-nourisher give me enough means of livelihood, make it easy for me to get them, and keep its source near at hand. Let me not waste time and energy in wild goose chase for that which You have not deemed suitable for my livelihood. Verily You have unlimited means to reduce the load of my hardships, and I am badly in need of Your mercy. So send blessings on Muhammad and his children and do favour to Your servant, Verily You are the owner of great favours.
