Q: My husband divorced me as I was a quarrelsome lady. But I loved him very much. He was a very honest man. I can’t live without him. He never understood me. Now he married again and very happy. I am 34 now. I confess to Allah Ta’ala that I am guilty. But I never had any bad intention in my mind. I love Allah and my husband. I want to die. How can I pray to get it. Why Allah took my husband and gave him to another woman. I am praying and crying to Allah for two years to get my husband back but one day Allah gave me the news that he married again. I know some mufti will answer Allah has done what is good for me. But will I get back my virginity and my honour again. I had a good character. I lost. The only fault I had in my character is bad temper. My question is will Allah return me the passed away two years and my newly married life and my husband if I pray and fast all the day and night?
A: Do not worry about the past. Continue turning to Allah Ta’ala and beg of His grace. After your five daily Salaah, recite the following dua and ask Allah Ta’ala to bless you with a pious and suitable spouse.
رَبِّ إِنِّي لِمَا أَنزَلْتَ إِلَيَّ مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَقِيْر
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
