I liked a boy and it turned out is my relative. He is from a different city than I am. He proposed me and I said yes. However, I didn’t have time or courage to tell my mother about it. So when his mother called to ask for hand, my mother said no. I told my mother that I really like the boy and that she should call them and apologize and invite them over. When my mother called, his father picked up and he refused point blank saying that they are not looking for any proposals at the moment. I am currently reciting Surah Taubah’s last two ayaats 41 times for 41 days.
Allah will provide. Keep love, respect, and kind communication with your parents. Find time to involve them in life-changing decisions. Do not request them to apologize for anything ever.
