Mother cursing her child

Q: When a mother always has something bad to say about her child e.g. She always say things like “you are not a pleasure” and “I don’t see a good future for you” etc. Is that like making a bad dua on that child? Will those words uttered by a mother be accepted by the Almighty?


A: The mother should abstain from this. These are dangerous words to utter, though Allah does not answer every bad-du`aa but some moments could be moments of acceptance. Hence, the mother should be more careful in this regard.

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