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

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

Life is filled with many tests.  Difficulties, hardships, and problems come upon individuals so that they may get closer to Allāh Ta’ālā. 

When an individual attains the recognition and love of Allāh, fulfills the orders of Allah, and stays away from sins, then Allāh Ta’alā bestows him/her with peace, tranquility and easiness even in this worldly life.  Almighty Allāh Ta’ālā says in the Qurān:

و من يتق الله يجعله مخرجا oويرزقه من حيث لا يحتسب (سورة الطلاق, اية 2-3)

Translation: And the one who fears Allah, Allah will create for him an exit. And Allah will sustain him from where he could not imagine.

(Surat-at Talāq, Ayah 2-3)


You have stated that you have not been employed for one and a half years.  Consider seeking the advice of experienced individuals and seniors in your community.  Consult them after explaining to them your circumstances and difficulties. This will give you more ideas and open up avenues for your future. Many minds coming together are far better than one individual mind.  Never think that you will be able to resolve your problems without the assistance and counseling of your seniors.  Consultation and Mashwarah has been emphasized to a large extent in our Dīn.


You have stated that you think someone did black magic upon you.  If you do not have evidence regarding this, then this is a mere assumption from your side.  Nevertheless, Qurān and Hadīth have offered to us the solution to every problem and evil that exists. Along with performing your five times daily Salāh, recite the last three Surahs of the Quran i.e. Surah Ikhlas, Surah Falaq, and Surah Nās three times every morning and evening.  Nabī Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam said that the recitation of these three Suras thrice is sufficient and will protect one from every evil. [1] Have conviction in the words of Nabī Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam and you will succeed. 


We make Du’ā that Allāh Ta’ālā put Khair and goodness in your life. Amīn.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
