I sincerely believe in the power of prayer as I have witnessed it numerous times in my life. There is a saying that nothing can change fate except dua (prayer) and there is one more saying that Allah has only three answers to a sincere prayer
“Yes, but not right now”
“No but I will give you something better”
Let me tell you an incident from my own life. I wanted to become an engineer because of my dad. He was a mechanical engineer working in a power plant company. It was my dream to work for a power plant company and I prayed after graduation to get a job in a power plant. A few months after graduation, a power plant company advertised its vacancies. I applied and was called for the interview. I was elated.
I prepared vigorously, dressed my best and even asked one of my dad’s friends who was working in the company to vouch for me. My interview went well. However after a week, all of my classmates who had applied for the graduate positions got the offer except me. I was so devastated that I got sick for two days because of severe disappointment.
Little did I know that Allah had better plans in store for me. A year and a half later, one of my friends told me about vacancies in this major aviation company she was working for. I applied, got interviewed and got selected. That job became the best thing that ever happened to me in my career. I got to work in aviation which is far m more interesting than the power sector. I went on foreign trainings and got to travel Europe.
Similarly, I have seen women on many Facebook groups lamenting over marital problems. I think a lot of problems that exist in relationships are due to lack of love. That is why I am sharing some duas for increasing love.
Question Duas to Increase Love between Spouses?
Answer In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
Adopt the following prescriptions:
1) Recite the following verse of the Qur’ān 99 times and then blow on a sweet food item. Eat it herself and also feed it to the husband. Do this for 3 days consecutively.
The verse of the Qur’ān is: وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ أَنْ خَلَقَ لَكُمْ مِنْ أَنْفُسِكُمْ أَزْوَاجًا لِّتَسْكُنُوْا إِلَيْهَا وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَكُمْ مَوَدَّةً وَّرَحْمَةً إِنَّ فِيْ ذَلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَّتَفَكَّرُوْنَ
Transliteration: “wa min aayaatihee an kalaqa lakum min anfusikum azwaajan litaskunoo ilayhaa waja ‘ala baynakum mawadatan wa rahmah inna fi thalika la aayaatin liqawmin yatafakaroon”
Translation: “Also among His signs (that demonstrate His power and prove His Oneness) is that He has created spouses for you from yourselves (from your own species) so that you may find solace (peace and rest) with her and He has placed (blessed you with tremendous) love (most clearly seen during youth and adulthood) and (blessed you with a great deal of) mercy (most clearly appreciated during old age) between you. There are certainly signs in this for people who contemplate (people who have insight)”
2) Recite the following verse of the Qur’an 11 times every day:
وَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوْبِهِمْ لَوْ أَنْفَقْتَ مَا فِي الْأَرْضِ جَمِيْعًا مَّا أَلَّفْتَ بَيْنَ قُلُوْبِهِمْ وَلَكِنَّ اللهَ أَلَّفَ بَيْنَهُمْ إِنَّهُ عَزِيْزٌ حَكِيْمٌ
Transliteration: “wa allafa bayna quloobihim law anfaqta maa fil ardi jamee’a maa allafta bayna quloobihim wa lakin Allaha allafa baynahum innahu azeezun hakeem”
Translation: “And (He) created the bond of love (harmony) between their hearts. If you had spent whatever (wealth and resources) is in the earth, you will not have been able to create that bond between them. Verily He is Mighty (can do whatever He wants), the Wise (in creating the bond of love between people).”
3) Recite the following Qur’an verse 11 times after every Fardh Salaah:
وَنَزَعْنَا مَا فِيْ صُدُوْرِهِمْ مِنْ غِلٍّ إِخْوَانًا عَلَى سُرُرٍ مُتَقَابِلِيْنَ Transliteration: “wa naza’n
maa fi sudoorihim min ghillin ikhwaanan ‘ala suroorin mutaqaabileen”
Translation: “We shall remove any ill-feelings (hatred and animosity towards other Muslims) that may be in their breasts. As brothers (with love and affection for each other) they (the people of Jannah) will be seated on couches, facing each other (as equals)”
4) Recite the following dua’ every day: اللَّهُمَّ أَلِّفْ بَيْنَ قُلُوْبِنَا وَأَصْلِحْ ذَاتَ بَيْنِنَا وَاهْدِنَا سُبُلَ السَّلَامِ وَنَجِّنَا مِنَ الظُّلُمَاتِ إِلَى النُّوْرِ وَجَنِّبْنَا الْفَوَاحِشَ مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا وَمَا بَطَنَ وَبَارِكْ لَنَا فِيْ أَسْمَاعِنَا وَأَبْصَارِنَا وَقُلُوْبِنَا وَأَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا وَتُبْ عَلَيْنَا إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيْمُ وَاجْعَلْنَا شَاكِرِيْنَ لِنِعْمَتِكَ مُثْنِيْنَ بِهَا قَابِلِيْهَا وَأَتِمَّهَا عَلَيْنَا
Transliteration: “allahumma allif bayna quloobinaa wa aslih thaata bayninaa wahdinaa subul as salaam wa najjinaa minaz zulumaati ilan noori wa jannibnal fawaahisha maa zahara minhaa wa maa batana wa baarik lanaa fi asmaa’inaa wa absaarinaa wa quloobinaa wa azwaajinaa wa thurri yaatinaa wa tub alaynaa innaka antat tawwaab al raheem waj’alna shaakireena lini’ matika muthneena bihaa qaabileehaa wa atammahaa alaynaa”
Translation: “O Allah, join our hearts, mend our social relationship, guide us to the path of peace, bring us from darkness to light, save us from obscenities, outward or inward, and bless our ears, our eyes, our hearts, our wives, our children, and relent toward us; you are the Relenting, the Merciful. Make us grateful for your blessing and make us praise it while accepting it and give it to us in full.”
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

I hope Allah puts love in the hearts of all spouses. If this post helps you, please remember me in your prayers.
