The Benefits of the Verse of 1,000 Dananir
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
And for those who fear Allah, He (Ever) Prepares a way out. And He Provides for him from (sources) he never could imagine. And if anyone puts his trust in Allah, sufficient is (Allah) for him. For Allah Will surely Accomplish His Purpose: verily, for all things has Allah Appointed a due proportion. (Surah ath-Thalaq:2-3)
This verse is the affirmation that the one who recites finds sufficiency in Allah (s.w.t.) only. The story behind the verse, is that there was once a poor man working on a ship who received this verse from Khidhr (a.s.). By the constant recitation of it, he became wealthy enough to be a king. There is no independent verification of the story.
Mu’Alim at-Tarimi Shaykh Zakaria ibn ‘Umar Bagharib (q.s.) was from a family of scholars noted in their knowledge of the Qur’an and the secrets of it. Shaykh Zakaria Bagharib (q.s.) used to say this verse should not be called the “Verse of 1,000 Dananir”; it should have been called the “Verse of a Million Dananir” since Allah (s.w.t.) is so Generous. It can be recited every morning after fajr for rizqi. Normally, it is recited ten times after the prayer. If recited constantly, he said that rizqi would chase you. The anxiety over the uncertainty of life will be Removed, since it affirms that Allah (s.w.t.) is the Provider, ar-Razzaq and no one else. Allah (s.w.t.) will Provide from an unexpected source.
It is also a du’a recited when one is in great difficulty. For one in such difficulty or who has a problem, it is recited as a wirid three times after the swalah. Insha’Allah, there is the Promise that within a short period of time, Allah (s.w.t.) will Appoint for the reciter a way out of all difficulties. As a wirid of protection, the amal is to recite it three times before going to bed and three times before leaving the house in addition to the above.
It is also an ayat ash-shifa’, an ayat for healing. If it is read on the sick three times and blown on the patient, or over water and given to the patient to drink; insha’Allah, the patient will recover. It also functions as a cure for the menaces of the ghayb. If recited at least seven times, it is sufficient to chase away the jinn.
If one has a pressing hajat, Shaykh Zakaria (q.s.) taught us that we shout recite it at least a hundred times after the swalah hajat. But there are no limits to its benefits and no limits to its recitation.
