Islamic marriage advice and family advice

I lost valuable items

Muslim dowry jewelry


I lost my valuable items during my cousin's wedding. I had kept it in my bag and forgot to wear them, and left the bag in the bride's room. After almost an hour when I saw my bag, my jewelry was not there. I lodged a complaint, but the cops are at ease. It's been three months gone and there's no response.

I pray and make Duas as much as possible. I'm bothered about those valuables, because my husband had made them for my daughters (I have two daughters, Mashaallah). I feel very frustrated that because of me, my daughters' future savings are lost. Please help me with some powerful Dua or Namaz to get back those things.

  1. To find lost object, recite surate's Albaqarah 156, we belong to Allah and to him shall we return.
    significance: recite the above ayah and search for the lost object. Insha Allah it will be found. otherwise, something better and greater in value will received. also you can use ZamZam water when praying with the ayah for Allah help to come for your aid

  2. Assalam alaikum,

    I once lost some gold earrings when attending a friend's wedding. I continuously read: Inna lillah hee wa inna ilayhee raa jee oon and made lots of du'a to Allah swt that I could get the earrings back. After a few months, the earrings showed up and it was truly unbelievable.

    Put your full trust in Allah swt and make sincere du'a from your heart, and if Allah wills, you will get these back.

    I pray that the gold is returned to you and your family, inn shaa Allah, Ameen.

    Make lots of dua and trust in Allah that either your jewellery will be returned to you or you will be recompensed with something better either in this life or the next. We have a section on this site that discusses dua in more detail, so you might find some helpful duas there, inshaAllah.

    The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) advised people to be pro-active when looking for and safe-guarding things (remember the man who was advised to tie up his camel, rather than leaving it un-tethered?). So, be pro-active. Think back to the wedding - who was there, who had access to the room, was your jewellery definitely in the bag when you left it? Speak with your family, the people who were responsible for the venue, any guests you can get in touch with... don't accuse anyone, but ask if anyone has seen your jewellery, or if it has been handed in anywhere. Think back and try to remember if there was anywhere else it might have been left, and if so then ask in those places too.

    It can be a horrible feeling to believe you have let down your children, but remember that material wealth is temporary and will not help us in the aakhirah - your children's true wealth and greatest gifts from you and your husband will be a happy and Islamic upbringing, knowledge of our faith, and Islamic values to guide them in their lives and help them become closer to Allah.
