I am 26 yrs old girl living in lahore.My father passed a long time ago.my mother very ill & looking for proposal for me but few of the proposal I got they seem to reject me.I dont know the reason for it,I am decent looking, educated(MSc statistics).I have no physical flaws on it.Lot of people reject because am staunch follower of islam or because they want a younger & modern girl for their son.am an obedient servant of Allah and I fear Allah to even think of adultery.I am not in rush to get married but being unmarried make me feel socially an outcast & it hurts me when my poor mom become answerable for not making me married.... what else should I do to get a pious husband or if it's not in my fate than how could I make my mom respectful in this regard!!
Assalam u Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah,
My dear sister in Islam
26 years old is not old by any definition. You are young Masha'Allah and you should not worry about your marriage to the extent that it begins to cause stress to you. Perhaps those people who rejected your proposal were not worthy of you and Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala did deem them fit for your marriage. Perhaps Allah has someone better for you in store who will keep you happy and strong Insha'Allah.
You should continue to make Dua for yourself and for your family. There is no good reason to fall into despair. I will pray for you as well Insha'Allah. May Allah provide for you a decent and compatible husband who will keep you happy and strong.
One scholar has suggested the recital of following Verse of Holy Qur'an 112 times each for first 11 days of the month. Continue reciting this Verse 112 times for first 11 days of the month for three consecutive months. Each day after having recited the Verse of Qur'an, you should recite Surah Ad-Dhuha (Chapter 93) three times:
رب إنى لما أنزلت إلى من خير فقير
Above is the last part of Verse 24 of Chapter 28
And Allah knows best.
