Making dua for someone in his absence

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: One of my cousins is on the wrong path and I’m very concerned about him. He talks to many girls, and plays with their hearts, just like today’s modern society’s bad guys. I would want to know of any wazifa or surah to recite on him for him to be guided on the right path. I do recite verse 8 from Surah Aal Imran over him often and pray for his guidance regularly. I want to know any other surah or dua too.


A: Don’t lose hope. Dua made for a brother in his absence is very effective. Preferably after one or two namaaz sincerely make dua for him everyday.

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