How is the recital of Surah Waqi’ah linked to protection from poverty?

Question

We recite Surah Waqi’ah for protection from poverty, but when I went through the meaning I cannot relate it to poverty. What does it really mean and how does it relate to poverty?

 

Answer

When we are promised a result in the Hadith for particular recitals, not always will we understand the wisdoms behind it. That should not deter us from practice.

Be that as it may, there are many verses in this Surah that discuss the bounty of sustenance from Allah Ta’ala.

Some of them mention the sustenance in the Hereafter (verses: 18-33), while others cite the worldly provisions (verses: 63-73).

In verse: 82, Allah Ta’ala also emphasises on how we should show gratitude for sustenance.

Kindly re-visit the translation of the verses mentioned above.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
