Q: I’m in very deep problem. I loved a boy for nearly 1 year. We were very happy together when one day he left to go with another girl. He had promised to marry me and made many other promises. Now its been two months since he is not with me and I just can’t forget him. Everyday I cry while praying namaz (salah). Because of him I don’t even eat now. I don’t want to marry, I just pray for my death. He told me he can’t marry me because my parents are divorced. I cursed him saying that he will never be happy with that girl. Please help me to forget him. I can’t move on in life.
A: Make Taubah and Istighfaar (repentance) for having contact with him. Don’t bother cursing him.
There is no special Du’aa for this purpose. Du’aa in your own words is most effective. Do not even make Du’aa for this. Making Du’aa for this is itself a reminder of that person.
Make Du’aa for ‘Aafiyah’. Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) advised Sayyidina Abu Bakr (Radhiyallaahu Anhu) to make Du’aa for Aafiyah. Aafiyah is such a word which encompasses all goodness and protection from all harm and difficulty. May Allah Ta’aala make it easy upon you. Aameen.
