Rejoicing and Supplication

Can You Give Me a Comprehensive Dua for My Unending Problems?

Answered by Ustadha Shazia Ahmad


I’m a 30-year-old man. I know my success depends on my effort, decisions, and God’s Will. I am weak, and it’s hard for me to make good decisions in my life. My family believes I am useless; I suffer from OCD and depression. My life is ruined. My family can’t help and guide me. I am religious, but they are not.

I need a comprehensive dua to be the hand of God in my life as I am afraid to find a job or a wife. I pray that Allah helps me with this dua, inspires me to a true path, and gives me success in this world and the next.


Thank you for your question. Thank you for your question. May Allah make your path easy for you, and may you follow what is best for your worldly matters and the next life. I recommend this supplication, along with tahajjud, the Prayer of Need, and good religious company.

We strongly advise you to take one of our free courses on how to beseech Allah properly: Beseeching The Divine: Supplications From The Quran

May Allah give you the best of this world and the next.
