Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I am very impressed by your Site. Allah Rabbul-Izzat will give you benifit for this in Maidane Mehshar.
My question is regarding the Rizk (Earnning). Which Dua if I read which make barkat in my Rizk & which is I should not do due to which my Rizk is reduce.
Is Dua-e-Ganjul-Harsh is dua for increasing the Barkar in my Rizk.

Dua to increase rizk
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 no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2257 Narrated by Abu Sa'id al-Khudri
The Prophet (saws) said, "Any Muslim who makes a supplication containing nothing which is sinful, or which involves breaking ties of relationship, will be given for it by Allah one of three things: He will give him swift answer, or store it up for him in the next world, or turn away from him an equivalent amount of evil." Those who heard it said they would then make many supplications and he replied that Allah was more ready to answer than they were to ask.
Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, it is Allah Subhanah Who has predetermined, according to His Plan and Will, the ‘rizk’ or sustenance of each in His Creation; thus rest assured that the All Knowing, All Wise Lord is well aware of your exact condition and situation. May Allah Subhanah make your test easy for you, and provide for you from His Unending and Infinite Bounties.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Israa verse 30: Verily thy Lord doth provide sustenance in abundance for whom He Pleaseth and He Provideth in a just measure: for He doth know and regard all His servants.
Some of the best supplications as taught by Allah and His Messenger (saws) if one wishes to increase one’s provisions are as follows:
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 28 Surah Qasas verse 24: Moses prayed : "O my Lord! truly am I in (desperate) need of any good that Thou Dost send me!"...
Hadrat Ali ibn Abi Taalib (r.a.) related that a slave, who had agreed on terms of his freedom with his master, came to him and said, "I cannot pay my master as I agreed in the terms of freedom, so help me." Hadrat Ali (r.a.) said to him, "Let me teach you the supplication that the Prophet (saws) taught me. If you say it, Allah will cause your debt to be paid even if it be as great as a mountain. Say, 'O Allah, make Your lawful bounties sufficient for me so as to save me from what is unlawful, and from Your grace grant me sufficient abundance to make me free from the need of all, except You'."
Reported by Tirmidhi.
Al-Muwatta Hadith 49.34
Yahya related from Malik from Hisham ibn Urwa that he heard the Messenger of Allah (saws) saying: “O Allah! Bless us in what You have provided us with and protect us from the punishment of the Fire!"
If one desires that Allah Subhanah increase his provision and sustenance, Allah and His Messenger (saws) guided the believers to do two things:
Spend in the Cause of Allah Subhanah
Be kind and develop good relations with one’s relatives.
Allah says in the Glorious Quran, Chapter 2, Surah Baqarah, verse 261: The charity of those who expend their wealth in the Way of Allah may be likened to a grain of corn, which produces seven ears and each ear yields a hundred grains. Likewise Allah develops manifold the charity of anyone He pleases, for He is All-Embracing, All-Wise.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 3.281 Narrated by Anas bin Malik
I heard Allah's Messenger (saws) saying, "whoever desires an expansion in his sustenance and age, should keep good relations with his kith and kin."
Your Question: Is Dua-e-Ganjul-Harsh is dua for increasing the Barkar in my Rizk.
The dua of ‘ganjul arsh’ (meaning ‘Treasures of the Throne’) is not a dua taught by the Messenger of Allah (saws) or from the Quran or Sunnah, but rather a collection of self-invented phrases. It would be best for the believers to supplicate Allah Subhanah in the manner taught by Allah and His Messenger (saws).
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
