Repenting from praying against others

Answered according to Shafi'i Fiqh by

Question: What do I have to do if I have made a prayer against someone (badua)?


Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

Dear questioner,

Thank you for your important question.

You should repent and make a sincere prayer for them. If they know you that said those words, you should apologize to them.

That’s all. Don’t get caught up with this. Prayer is not a magic spell. It is an earnest cry to our powerful and merciful Creator.
