As-salaam-alai-kum! I am having a lot of trouble in my marriage of 12 years – my husband keeps doubting me and bad mouths me to his and my family and friends. I have sworn on the Quraan that I have not done anything wrong but he fails to understand. He abuses me infront of the neighbors and does not talk to me or sleep with me. This has been going on for the past few years. He is very very ‘Shaqqi’ – I have tried to make him understand and tried to always go to him and make him understand but his ‘ana’ / ego is such that he will be ok for a few days and then again start asking me for money – for the past few years he has not supported me financially and always asks me what I do with my money. Please help me – I am a working mother of 2 kids in the US. Please write the dua in English since I am not very well versed with Arabic, i am still learning, Insha Allah. Jazak Allah

Answer

(Fatwa: 2024/D=41/k=1431)

First recite durood seven times then يا ارحم الراحمين one hundred times, يا حيّ يا قيوم برحمتك استغيث one hundred times, then recite the following dua seven times:
وَالَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَاماً [الفرقان : 74]
In last, recite durood seven times and supplicate Almighty Allah.
