Harassed by one’s employer

Q: I asked my boss to raise my salary as I am working for 6 years, but instead of raising he is trying to take out some fault in me and for small mistakes he is harassing me by sending emails and degrading me in front of others. Please help me out. If I leave the job I am scared that I may not get another job.


A: Recite after your five daily Salaah the following dua and make dua that Allah Ta’ala bless you with halaal sustenance with happiness.

رَبِّ أِنِّي مَغْلُوبٌ فَانتَصِرْ “O Allah, I am completely helpless and overpowered, You help me and assist me (in my difficulty).”

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
