Ustadh Tabraze Azam is asked whether reciting Sura Ya Sin in a certain way may help turn the hearts of parents and fulfill one’s needs.

Question:

Assalam alaykum wa rahmat Allah wa barakatuh.

I find myself in a dilemma these days. I like a younger Muslim man. He proposed but my parents aren’t letting us get married due to age and not being established yet.

Someone told me recently that reciting Sura Ya Sin in a special way (a certain number of days, stopping and starting at the word mubin, etc.) can help to make our parents meet to talk about us.

Is there a basis for reciting in this way to fulfill a need? I know someone who it helped a lot, but I’m not familiar with this method of reciting the Qur’an.

Answer:

Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmat Allah wa baraktuh.

I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha Allah.

The best supplications are those made from a focused heart out of sincerity, love, and contentment.

Supplications are answered in one of three ways:

    1) by getting the thing you asked for,
    2) by the averting of a calamity that would have befallen you, or
    3) by being saved up for the Hereafter as a gift or reward.

And remember that getting a response is a Divine promise.

Parents can be convinced. But you should make absolutely sure that he is a suitable spouse – such that he knows what it means to be a husband, he is compatible with you, and shares the same outlook as you.

I’d highly recommend taking this class. Marriage in Islam: Practical Guidance for Successful Marriages.

And Allah alone gives success.
