  1. Asking Forgiveness to Allah

One of increasing the sustenance is asking forgiveness to Allah for all of the bad deeds we have done. By saying Istighfar in the multiple times, Allah will open the door of sustenance and remove all of the hardship we usually face. According to Quran 71 : 10 -12 ( Nuh):

“ And said, ‘Ask forgiveness of your Lord. Indeed, He is ever a Perpetual Forgiver. He will send [rain from] the sky upon you in [continuing] showers. And give you increase in wealth and children and provide for you gardens and provide for you rivers.”

2. Obedience to Allah (Taqwa)

Whoever fears Allah and piety towards him, Allah will promise to provide the sustenance that never be imagined. In contrary, whoever disbelieved to Allah (and the messenger as well), they will get what they earn (punishment for disbelieved people). As quoted in Quran 7: 96 (Al A’raf):

“And if only the people of the cities had believed and feared Allah (taqwa), We would have opened upon them blessings from the heaven and the earth; but they denied [the messengers], so we seized them for what they were earning.”

Another ayah of the Quran says that whoever fear for Allah so that Allah will solve the problem of that praying person and provide him what he does not expect. Quoted in Quran 65:2-3 (At Talaq)

“And whoever fears Allah – He will make for him a way out. And will provide for him from where he does not expect And will provide for him from where he does not expect”

3. Grateful (Shukr) to Allah

Mostly saying thanks to Allah is by reciting Alhamdulillah ([All] praise and thanks are to Allah, Lord of the worlds).  Moeslem is recommended to thank God for all the blessings given and sometimes even our prayers be blessed by Him. By admitting there is no God except Allah and always be grateful, so that Allah will promise to His slaves to give them more. According to Quran 14:7:

“If you give thanks (by accepting Faith and worshipping none but Allah), I will give you more (of My Blessings); but if you are thankless (i.e. disbelievers), verily My punishment is indeed severe”
