In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious and The Most Merciful
Salaatul Haajaat (Prayer for Need)
Everyone is in need of success and goodness. Du’a (supplication) is the essence of worship, the light of the heavens and the earth. It opens the doors of mercy and is a means to fulfill our needs from the treasures of our Creator and Sustainer.
Whenever one is faced with any problem related to this world or the hereafter, be it a bodily affliction or a spiritual one i.e. desire to sin, one should perform two rakaats Salaatul Haajaat with the relevent du'as. Thereafter make du'a sincerely and repeatedly every day. Allah Ta’ala will create means of overcoming the problems from the unseen.
It is reported from Abdullah bin Abi Aufa () that Rasulullah () is reported to have said that whomsoever has any need from Allah Ta’ala or any person then he should make wudu thoroughly. Thereafter he should perform two rakaats of salaah, recite praises on Allah Ta’ala and send blessings on the Prophet (). Then he should recite this du'a:
Glory be to Allah, the Rabb of the Great throne. All praise is exclusively for Allah, the Rabb of the universe. O Allah, I beg You of that which will guarantee Your Mercy, actions which will make certain Your Forgiveness, a supply of every virtue and freedom from every sin. O Allah, do not leave any sin of mine unpardoned, remove all my worries and fulfill every need of mine which conforms to your pleasure.
