I am writing this in very dire need. Please help. I have done a very big mistake.
Last week a marriage proposal came for me and he was perfect. He was what I had prayed for from Allah but I refused on a really stupid thing. It was my first proposal. Now I am regretting it very severely. It’s hurting me a lot. I have been asking Allah (sw) to forgive me and have that alliance come back to me. I have begged and cried for forgiveness . I am ashamed to say I didn’t understand the gravity of the situation despite my family trying to make me understand. Will Allah forgive me? Will He send for me another or not? Will He give me another chance like this. I need help.
Please, tell me of any dua which can help me bring him back. Please help me!!!!
Allah forgives everything especially if it is a mistake done unthinkingly. It is a great teaching from Him to allow us to learn from our mistakes and better appreciate His gifts. Just move on and ask Him for a second chance, in sha Allah He will send you someone. However, do not ask for perfection as that is not the lot of human beings except prophets. For us, perfection consists in our goodness to outweigh our evil and the greatest miracle is constancy in uprightness. Say: Rabbana Atina fil dunya hasanatan wa fil akhirati hasanatan wa qina `adhaban nar in your every du`a.
