My father is a very very hot tempered man, he cannot control his anger and has very little patience with me and my sister. He often picks on my sister for no reason and starts shouting and screaming at her finding faults. He always wants his way and if he doesn’t get it he will start shouting at us. Furthermore, he is unemployed and is living off my mother’s income.
As a daughter, is there a doa I can make to mellow him down and start speaking nicely to us? Is there any way I can make him realize to take the initiative to find a job and support him family? We have talked to him but he refuses to listen and keeps on with this bad habit of just scolding and scolding.
Insha Allah, Mawlana Shaykh Hisham will pray for you. You may do the following steps in Du’a of Sayyiduna Dawud (a.s.) with the intention that your father’s heart will be filled be love and responsibility.
