Dua for Effective Work Performance & Good Marriage

Shortened Question:

What duas can I make for effective work performance and a happy marriage?


I attained my Accounting Degree and I worked as an Accountant in India. My husband now works in Muscat.  He had obtained a job there for me also.

I need a dua that will make me successful in my new job and have good relationship with my superiors.

I also need a dua for a happy married life.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

You have requested for duas for a happy and peaceful life.

Peace and happiness for every creation lies in maintaining that natural role designed by Allah Ta’ala for that creation.

Allah Ta’ala designed a man’s role according to his temperament. A man’s role is to earn an income and provide for his family. This is in keeping with his honour and his integrity. If he remains home and his wife works and supports him, this would be against the temperament of a normal man. He will be uneasy. No amount of duas can bring peace to him until he adopts the natural mode designed for him by Allah.

Allah Ta’ala created a woman with different qualities and temperaments from that of a man. A woman’s natural temperament is to be at home. If she adopts a role against her natural temperament she will never attain peace.

A  Muslim woman should remain in her home unless there is a Shari reason for her to leave. In that instance then she may leave her home whilst abiding by the laws of Hijab.

Allah says:

And remain in your homes, and do not display (your) beauty as it used to be displayed in the days of early ignorance. And establish Salat, and pay Zakat, and obey Allah and His messenger. Allah only intends to keep all sort of filth away from you, O members of the family of the prophet, and to make you pure through a perfect purification(33). And be mindful of Allah’s verses and the wisdom that is recited in your homes. Surely Allah is all kind all aware(34). Surah Al-Ahzab (33): 33-34)[1]

If a woman has no source of income to fulfill her basic needs, then only she may go out to earn an income. In your case if your husband is able to support you, it is not permissible for you to work.

The best dua is the one that comes from your heart. You alone know what your true desires are. You should cry to Allah in your own language. Allah understands all languages. If you find it difficult to cry before Allah, then merely pretending to be crying is sufficient. You should consistently cry before Allah in good times and bad times alike.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
