Rizk sustenance from wife and child

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 42 Surah Shura verse 12:

12 To Him (Allah) belong the keys (of the treasures) of the heavens and the earth: He enlarges and restricts the sustenance to whom He Wills: for He Knows full well all things.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 42 Surah Shura verse 19:

19 Gracious is Allah to His servants: He gives sustenance to whom He Pleases: and He has Power to can carry out His Will.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 13 Surah Raad verse 26:

26 Allah doth enlarge or grant by (strict) measure the sustenance (which He Gives) to whom He so Pleases.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 151:

151 Say: "Come I will rehearse what Allah hath (really) prohibited you from: join not anything as equal with Him; be good to your parents: kill not your children on a plea of want; We provide sustenance for you and for them; come not nigh to shameful deeds whether open or secret; take not life which Allah hath made sacred except by way of justice and law: thus doth He command you that ye may learn wisdom.”


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.430 Narrated by Abdullah bin Musud

Allah's Messenger (saws), the true and truly inspired said, "(The matter of the Creation of) a human being is put together in the womb of the mother in forty days, and then it becomes a clot of thick blood for a similar period, and then a piece of flesh for a similar period. Then Allah sends an Angel who is ordered to write four things: he (the Angel) is ordered to write down its (the baby’s) deeds, its sustenance, its (date of) death, and whether it will be blessed or wretched (in religion). Then the soul is breathed into it…..”


The ‘rizk’ or sustenance of each and every individual in creation is determined and prescribed by Decree from the Lord Most Gracious when one is still in one’s mother’s womb! The sustenance of the wife or the child is entirely dependant upon the Decree and the Determination their Lord Creator has made for them; and they themselves (or anyone in creation) do not possess the power to increase or decrease the provision which the Lord has Decreed for their husband or their father (or anyone else in creation!).


Beloved Sister in Islam, what we know as ‘fate’ or ‘destiny’ or ‘qismat’ is nothing more than the Documented and Decreed Perfect and Absolute Knowledge of Allah Subhanah. The fate or destiny or the blessings in the sustenance of the husband is not at all dependant on his wife or his children….but it is Allah Subhanah Alone Who Prescribes by Decree the amount of sustenance for each in His creation.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
