To get rid of sickness and poverty

أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم Sayyidna Abu Hurairah RA has said that once he went out with the Holy Prophet SAW in a manner that his hand was in Holy Prophet’s hands. He passed by a person who was disheveled and worried. He asked, ‘what brought you to this condition?’ That person said, ‘sickness and poverty have done this to me.’ He said, ‘I am going to tell you a few words. If you recite these, your sickness and poverty will go away. The words were:
Tawakkaltu alal hayyilladhee la yamutu alhamdulillahilladhee lam yattakhiz waladan walam yakun lahu shareekun filmulki walam yakun lahu waliyyun minazzulli wa kabbirhu takbeera I place my trust in the Ever Living who is not to die. Praise belongs to Allah who has neither taken to Him a son, nor is there any partner to Him in His kingdom, nor is anyone (needed) to protect Him because of (any) weakness. And proclaim His greatness, an open proclamation. (17:lll) After the passage of some time, when he went that way, he found his condition good and showed his pleasure about it. That person told him, ‘since the time you taught me these words, I recite them punctually.’ (Abu Ya’la and Ibn al-Sunni, as quoted by Mazhari) -Maariful Quran, Surah Bani Israel: 17: 111, Volume 5, page 564.
