Mother cursing daughter

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I have a best friend and when she was young her mother always used bad words or would curse her saying “Go and eat so and so pooh”. Presently she feels that because her mother used these words, her life is miserable. She always struggles in life with work and even with her proposals. Whenever she gets a good proposal, it breaks up and she feels guilty because Allah Talla accepted her mothers curse. She even helped her mother whenever she was hospitalized and financially. What is the Islamic way how on how a daughter should be treated? What would be the status of the mother on the day of judgement and how can my friend overcome this situation? She always repents to Allah for these curses.


A: She should forgive her mother’s shortcomings and for the wrong utterances. She should turn to Allah Ta`ala. May Allah Ta`ala grant her a good future.

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