Wealth Increase?


A shaykh was sitting in a masjid once when a man came up to him and complained that he was poor.  The shaykh said “Make istighfar.”


Another man came and complained that he had no children.  The shaykh said “Make istighfar.”


A third man came and complained of a drought that is damaging his crops.  The shaykh said “Makeistighfar.”


Now, the students of the shaykh saw all this and were puzzled.  They asked him, “Shaykh, these people all came complaining about very different things, and yet you told them all to make istighfar.”


The shaykh answered, quoting Surah Nuh, verses 10-12:


And I said, ‘Ask forgiveness of your Lord.  Indeed, He is ever a Perpetual Forgiver.  He will send [rain from] the sky upon you in [continuing] showers and give you increase and wealth and children and provide for you gardens and provide for you rivers.’

Seeking forgiveness is a means of increase in wealth! SubhanAllah
