Help! My Parents Keep Backing Out of Groom Proposals – Is it Evil Eye or Bad Timing?

Q: I need  help. My age is 22 years and my parents are seeking a groom for me! Whenever some grooms family likes me and the matter is taken ahead, some kind of obstacle comes up at the real end, and my parents have to back out. This has happened with me thrice now and people are beginning to pity and sense something fishy. I would like you to know that the proposal is rejected by us in the end as some problem occurs from opposite side! Everything appears perfect at the beginning and towards the end some twist pops up. Please help me what should I do? Am I effected by evil eye or magic? Or is it that my time hasn’t arrived yet?


A: A Mu’min, in whichever condition he may be, should turn to Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى). The solutions of all problems lie in the hands of Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى). In order for one to receive the mercy of Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) and barkat in his life, one should ensure that he is leading a life according to the Sunnah and not displeasing Allah Ta’ala at any time. Be conscious of observing purdah, guarding the eyes and the tongue and performing the five daily Salaah on it’s prescribed time. Recite رَبِّ إِنِّي لِمَا أَنزَلْتَإِلَيَّ مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَقِيرٌ after your five daily Salaah and constantly make dua that Allah Ta’ala bless you with a pious husband.

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