Difficulties living with one’s parents

Q: I am currently living with my parents and I have endured many difficulties during the past nineteen years of my life. My father is extremely verbally abusive to us I.e my mother and siblings and dawns all his anger on me. I try my best to be obedient to him and I can’t recall when last I haven’t obeyed his commands but he persists in lashing out on me and forcing me to do that which is haraam, he also never spends on us and we are often left  stranded and miserable. Can you please give me a method in which I may quell his anger or make him realise his actions unto us are wrong?


A: You may recite يَا سُبُّوْحُ ، يَا قُدُّوْسُ ، يَا غَفُوْرُ ، يَا وَدُوْدُ and then blow on him. Further, daily conduct ta`leem of Fazaa’il-e-A`maal and Fazaa’il-e-Sadaqaat and recite the Qur’aan Shareef in the mornings and evenings with some du`aa at the end.

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