Du’aa of the destitute

رَبِّ إِنِّي لِمَا أَنزَلْتَ إِلَيَّ مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَقِيرٌ

Rabbi innii limaa anzalta ilayya min khayrin faqiir. (28:24)

My Lord, I am needy of whatever good You send down for me.


This was the du’aa of Sayyidna Musa (a.s.) when he reached Madyan to escape from a death sentence from the Pharaoh for accidentally killing an Egyptian. He was hungry, tired, penniless, and a total stranger in this town. Allah Ta’aala provided for him a home and a spouse and he lived there for a decade.

Anyone in a total state of destitution may derive immense strength from saying this du’aa while remembering the condition of sayyidna Musa (a.s.) at that time.
