Definition of Rizky
Fortune or sustenance is one of the things that is the secret of Allah SWT. Allah mentions in the verses of the Qur’an about sustenance that sustenance is the same as a person’s death, age, and mate. However, Allah has also confirmed that every creature on earth has guaranteed its sustenance. Therefore, we as Muslims who believe in Allah should no longer feel anxious about the problem of sustenance.
Because the problem of sustenance has been arranged by Allah, we as His servants only need to try our best to achieve it.
Islam views sustenance not only as material, other non-material enjoyment such as health, happiness, household harmony, knowledge, work, and so on are also very valuable and need to be grateful for.
Al-Quran is the holy book of Muslims which explains everything including the problem of sustenance. In the holy book, there are many verses that mention sustenance. Every human being and creature on earth has all been determined and regulated by God’s sustenance. The task of humans is only to seek sustenance in a lawful way and be grateful for it.
Fortune is the door of life that should be grateful for favors. Fortune comes from Allah SWT, because Allah SWT is the Most Giver and Most Rich.
Apart from trying to work to earn sustenance, humans must also place their trust by praying a lot to Allah so that the door of sustenance will be made easy and opened. Practices to bring sustenance include performing dhuha prayers, reading the Al Quran Surah Ar Rahman, giving charity and praying a lot.
As explained in the letter Ar-Rum verse 40. In that letter, Allah SWT says, “It is Allah who created you, then gives you sustenance, then turns off, then revives (again). Is there anyone among those whom you associate with Allah who can do something like that? Glory be to Him and Most High of what they associate.”

On the other hand, Allah also reminds those who deny His favor, and do not want to be grateful that He will inflict a very painful punishment on them. Grateful for God’s grace can be done in various ways.
First, with a sincere greeting; secondly, accompanied by deeds, namely using the grace for purposes that are pleasing to Him. In everyday life, we can see that people who are generous and like to spend their wealth for the public interest and helping people, generally never fall into poverty or misery.
In fact, his fortune is always increasing, his wealth is increasing, and his life is happy, loved and respected in the association.
On the other hand, rich people who are stingy, or like to use their wealth for things that are not pleasing to Allah, such as gambling or taking usury, their wealth does not increase, in fact it quickly decreases. In addition, he was always hated and cursed by the people, and in the afterlife received severe punishment.
