What is Dua Hajat?

“Dua” means supplication or prayer, and “hajat” means need or desire in Arabic.

Dua Hajat is often recited when a person has a specific urgent need or desire, such as seeking a job, healing from an illness, finding a life partner, or any other significant life request. It is a way for Muslims to express their dependence on Allah and seek His assistance in times of difficulty or need.

The specific wording of Dua Hajat can vary, as we are encouraged to pray from our hearts sincerely.

What is Dua Hajat

Reciting Istighfar for fulfillment of need

Istighfar removes difficulty. We wrote a detailed article on  istighfar. Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu A’layhi Wa Sallam said: مَنْ لَزِمَ الاِسْتِغْفَارَ جَعَلَ اللَّهُ لَهُ مِنْ كُلِّ ضِيقٍ مَخْرَجًا وَمِنْ كُلِّ هَمٍّ فَرَجًا وَرَزَقَهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لاَ يَحْتَسِبُ  (ابو داود, رقم الحديث 1518)

 Whosoever does istighfar abundantly, Allah will create for him an exit from every narrow path, and will create for him an opening from every distress and will provide for him from where he could not imagine.

(Abu Dāwūd, Hadīth #1518)

1)     The method of performing salaatul hājah is that the one in need should:[1]

  • Properly perform wudhū
  • Pray two rakaā’t salāh
  • Praise Allah Taā’la
  • Send durūd on Nabi Sallallāhu Alayhi Wa Sallam
  • Recite the following dua:

لاإله إلا الله الحليم الكريم سبحان الله رب العرش العظيم الحمد لله رب العالمين أسئلك موجبات رحمتك وعزائم مغفرتك والغنيمة من كل بر والسلامة من كل إثم لا تدع لي ذنبا الا غفرته ولا هما إلا فرجته ولا حاجة هي لك رضا إلا قضيتها يا أرحم الراحمين

Translation: There there no god but Allah the Clement and Wise. There is no god but Allah the High and Mighty. Glory be to Allah, Lord of the Tremendous Throne.  All praise is to Allah, Lord of the worlds.  I ask you (O Allah) everything that leads to your mercy, and your tremendous forgiveness, enrichment in all good, and freedom from all sin.  Do not leave a sin of mine (O Allah), except that you forgive it, nor any concern except that you create for it an opening, nor any need in which there is your good pleasure except that you fulfill it, O Most Merciful!

(Tirmidhi, Hadith # 477)

And if circumstances do not permit the performance of two rakā’t salāt, then one should simply turn to Allah in humility and ask of his needs. (ref)
