2. Wife

3. Horse/vehicle

These three things can affect the owner in his personal development. It may prosper his life or it may downgrade him or no development. Does it really have any effect of such in life in the light of Islam and Deen?


A: There is no such a thing as ill luck and misfortune. It is possible that the wife will be bad tempered or the vehicle etc. is not performing as desired or the home or the place where one is living, the weather conditions of that place are not suitable.

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