Is There a Prayer to Save My Marriage?

Answered by Shaykh Jamir Meah

Question: Assalamu alaykum

Is there any du’a to Allah to dismiss my divorce and have my husband love me for the sake of my baby?

Answer:Assalam ‘alaykum. Thank you for writing in to us. May Allah make your affairs easy.

Marital issues are often sensitive and require local support in order to resolve issues. If possible, seek out advice and support from trusted family members, or other persons that may be able to help you explore your options.

It is important in marriage that spouses love and respect each other for themselves, so that they are the strong foundation of the family. If that love is not there, but they only ‘love’ each other for the sake of the children, the spousal relationship usually remains strained.

Despite your pain, try your best to stay strong and optimistic, trusting that Allah is charge of all that happens. Perhaps Allah has something much better for you and your child in store. Also, keep in the company of good friends and family who can provide support and comfort.

Du’a and Prayer

Allah Most High listens to all supplications. What is important is to be sincere, and to ask Allah for what is best for you and your child.

Recite these supplications regularly, perhaps 3 times after each prayer:

اللَّهُمَّ لَا سَهْلَ إِلَّا مَا جَعَلْتَهُ سَهْلًا ، وَأَنْتَ تَجْعَلُ الْحَزْنَ إِذَا شِئْتَ سَهْلًا
O Allah, there is no ease except in that which You have made easy, and You make the difficulty, if You wish, easy
[Ibn Hibban]

اللَّهُمَّ رَحْمَتَكَ أَرْجُو فَلَا تَكِلْنِي إِلَى نَفْسِي طَرْفَةَ عَيْنٍ وَأَصْلِحْ شَأْنِي كُلَّهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ
O Allah, I hope for Your mercy, do not leave me for even the duration of an eye blink (duration) and correct my total condition. Besides You there is none worthy of worship
[Hisnul Hasin]

The Prayer of Need (Haja) is also recommended when facing difficult situations. You can find out how to perform the prayer here.

I sincerely pray that Allah grants you peace and happiness and a way out of every difficulty.

Warmest salams,
