Dua to convince parents for love marriage

Dua woman at Sunset


I want to ask for any dua that can melt my parents and family's hearts so that they can be ready to marry me to a guy I love. I did istikahra for this and the dream was positive too. But there is in no way my family would agree to this marriage. Please help me and guide me what I can do?

  1. Well, you have to give us some background to your case ie,
    Your relationship with him,
    Your backgroud and his background and religion,
    Reason for your parents disapproval.

    Well, it's not a good thing to go against your parents wishes...many many have done this but it's not a good thing. Nothing can change a persons heart only if they want to change.

  2. Assalaamu Alaykum sister.

    To the best of my knowledge there is no dua that can make your parents agree. You can't make anyone do anything. Ultimately if you've made istikhaarah - Allah will cause to happen whatever is best for you.

    It might be worth learning about istikhaarah again - please scroll to the top of the page and click on 'istikhaarah questions & answers' and read through those links. Istikhaarah is not about a dream in a nutshell.

    Also IF you are in a haraam relationship (either physically - involving any form of touching, or emotionally - no touching but talking, flirting and saying I love you etc) then you need to stop and make tawbah. No sin is too big for Allah's mercy.

    There are conditions to tawbah though:

    1) Immediately stop the sin
    2) Feel regret for the sin.
    3) Resolve/Decide not to do it again.
    4) Ask Allah to forgive you.

    Use this time to turn to Allah and get close to Him. Not for this guy, not so that He will melt your parents' heart, but do it for yourself. Because you need Allah. So do it to please Him and He (swt) will turn your bad deeds into good deeds.

    And another thing (if one persists in doing bad deeds and asks Allah)

    Then he (i.e. the Prophet) made mention of a man who is constantly in journeys and has dishevelled hair and dusty appearance (due to constant journeys for performing acts of righteousness such as Hajj, Umra, seeking knowledge etc.) and he raises his hands towards the sky saying “O my Rabb. O my Rabb”. But his food is from haraam. His drink is from haraam. His clothes are from haraam. He is nourished from haraam. How can it (his prayer) be accepted?” (Muslim; Mishkaatul Masaabih pg. 241, Qadeemi)

    So Allah knows best but turning your heart towards Allah may result in that dua being accepted.

    Even if you haven;t had a haram relationship make istighfar anyway (seek forgiveness from Allah). It is something every Muslim should be in the habit of.

    Actions taken in accordance with the halal tend to have barakah in. Conversely actions done in a haraam way tend to have no barakah in. I know of lots of cases of people who've married after haraam relationships and have had TERRIBLE marriages - because its devoid of barakah - or they couldnt marry and went through excessive heartbreak.

    So to have Barakah - DO THINGS THE RIGHT WAY - and Allah will make things easy for you.

    This is my advice - turn to Allah, increase in worship, make lots of istighfaar and dua, start praying 5x if you dont, if you do then pray tahajjud in the night - and ask Allah to open the doors of His Mercy and melt your parents hearts - then InshaAllah this will help.

    It's also good to think about why you want to marry this guy, why do you love him? Honestly ask yourself. Why would he make a good husband or would he? If there's something you're lacking and you feel that this guy is compensating for that - then that's a recipe for disaster!!!! It's worth letting go of it.

    I hope this helps InshaAllah.

    My advice to you is be very careful with your choice of marriage if your parents are not fully behind you. Marriage is not one day of romance - don't judge this man you want to marry based on what he has told you and been towards you. Let your parents have their say too - we never understand this till we get married. My father was very unhappy with my marriage because my husbands family were from a different upbringing and my husband refused to live separately. Eight months down the line we divorced. His parents emotionally and spiritually drained me - it was a unbelievably unhealthy environment to live in. My fathers words kept going round and round my head. He did not have the strength to stand up to his parents - I left. So take your parents disapproval as a sign of your isthakhara also - it does not only come in the form of a dream but through real situations and behaviours of the people involved towards you. I hope InshAllah you do not attach yourself to this man - if its pleasurable do not get attached it won't last. Think ahead think carefully of your parents resistance and reflect on their reasons for disapproving.

    • Wazifa in Islam

      Also, your understanding of Istikhara is wrong. It has nothing to do with mother's names or any other names or birth dates. Those are all shirki practices coming from Hindu astrology and numerology.

    • Dear Aashi
      Allah Will give you each and every thing to you which are good for you just pray to allah that he can give you which is best for you if he is in your naseeb definitely you will be get and if your parents agree that mean allah also agree. and second thing is that if he could do any thing against his mother that mean after marry and after few days of life he completely ignore you might be he leave you just because of his mother so plz don't trust those people who couldn't defiance you in front of his family my dear sister marriage is not game of one day its a life time game so please first completely observe him then take any step for marriage pray 5 time namaz and say Ya allah show me the right path and give me the right person for my life partner if Allah made him for you the you will be get if he is not good for you allah will help you for your best future.
      Best wishes for you

  9. Asslam o alikum, my name is Huma waqar. I m an engineering student. I am feeling very depressed about the situation i am facing now a days. I really like some one from my heart. We were both class fellows from 5 years. and we like each other from last 4 years. He is from middle class family and i m from rich family. 6 months before his family came and they asked my parents for his son's proposal. We both were very happy as our parents decided to make both of us engaged soon. After this, in 6 months his family was not responding properly, they started to make excuses. They called my parents 5,6 times that they will come very soon for duwaye khair. My father called them also in order to invite them but each time his parents said that they they are busy right now they will come very soon. In this 6 months there came 3 proposals for me from very rich family but i want to marry the one i like. So i rejected all of my proposals in Waiting for his parents.After 6 months, his parents said sorry the istekhara did not came right so we do not want our son to marry , we have only one son and we cant take risk. Now my parents are very angry they said that his parents deceived us so, do not contact this guy again. But i cannot live without him.He said that he also cannot live without me and he will keep on trying at home in order to convince his parents. I tried a lot to gorget him but each time i failed. I m doing Istekhara from last 2 weeks but could not getting the result. What should i do? I m feeling very tensed and i do not have any kind of guidance from any one. I just want him back in my life. Please guide me what should i do

  10. How did things turn out for you? I'd really like to know what happened and have your parents finally agreed?

  11. Salam alaykum my brothers and sisters I am in a sticky situation! I've been in love with a guy for at least four years and now that he's ready to marry me my family doesn't approve of it because of some mistakes he did in the past and because his parents and my parents don't get along. He has given up all hope because he feels as if it's impossible to win this battle. I really want this guy to be my husband and want to spend the rest of my life with him. Please help me. -anonymous45

    • salam, sister i jjust wanted to ask by you saying 'He has given up all hope because he feels as if it's impossible to win this battle' did he back away from you and wants to move on ?

      • No he hasn't moved on, he feels as he will never get to be with me because my parents and his parents don't like each other and when I told my parents that I was to be with him they threaten to kick me out the house. He doesn't want that to happen to me that's why he backed away.

    • What kind of mistake has he made in the past ?

      • he hung with people that smoked and drank but the only thing he use to do is smoke. And also people keep making up rumors about him saying that he's a horrible person and whatnot. My parents don't want me to be with him because of his father

        • you don't know, he may be drinking as well?
          well you may get the whole report because if you get to marry him and you get to know the hidden secrets after marriage ,that will surely disappoint you and your parents.
          parents are parents because they know the world better than us.from what you are going through now they have passed.
          well what parents tells us to do seem to hurt but actually it turns out to be better after a period.
          what we do on our behalf seem correct in start but after a time period it turns out the biggest mistake of our lives.
          It's just an advice,but take it seriously.
          however all depends upon you because no one among us is going to suffer, but only you.this is your life and the decision should be yours.

  12. Salaam,
    I'm 18 years old. I pray my salah's regularly. I've got three proposals from family. I rejected one of them because he doesn't study, he is from a good family and also he was interested in me but for me, education is very important. The second one is a lawyer, he is 7 years older than me but I believe age does not matter in a relationship when you have a good understanding, he is interested in me and he is from a good family, he is a mature, sincere and honest man. I really want him to be my future partner but my father doesn't agree because of some ego problems. The third one has done IT and works in Saudia, his family is a bit conservative than ours. My father doesn't agree with the third one as well. I want to get married to the 2nd one, no one in the family is supporting me to convince my dad. It's already been 1 year now to his proposal. No one waits for soo long for the answer. Many ppl from my family did love marriages but at my time no one supports me just coz the ego prob even tho the ppl who did love marriages have done that in the same family from where the 2nd proposal came. My dad has no prob with that guy. How should I convince my dad? Please, advice me something. I really need a good advice at the moment.

Then suddenly my parents start saying that this marriage will not happen because that has has some sharp(name match / Sarpa Dhosa)) which is against Islam (Shirk/Haram).

  25. I really need some advice at this point of life.

  26. Assalam o alaikum

    I'm in a relationship with a guy who is from a different religion. His parents accepted for our marriage.
    I informed my parents when I started accepting him. Initially they didn't accept as he is from a different religion looking for the society. I thought as days passes on they will accept.
    It's been 2 years since I informed them.
    My father says to me to runaway and get register marriage for which we are not ready.
    He said the same even when my boyfriend approached him. My boyfriend isv even ready to do circumcision boyfriend and self, we both are very clear about not to get eloped and married.
    On the other end my mother is completely against my love talking about society and all.
    We are really not interested in running away and getting married.
    I don't know whom to share all these as I don't have any close friends. I share all my feelings with Allah.
    Right now I'm reciting the following after ablution- darood e paak-7times after and before I recite rabana hablana-15times in a day.
    Because of this im suffering from health issues.
    I'm really worried.
    Kindly give me a suggestion or let me know which dua I can recite.

  27. Asalamualikum ...
