Love marriage with my father’s sister’s stepson.


I love my father’s sister’s stepson. we both want to marry each other what must we do. we can’t marry any other person as we cant give each other’s place to anyone else or to cheat anyone. we should make our parents understand it and how we could make it happen with their blessings and wishes??, tell dua or any hadith which can help us to do so.


Wa alaykum salam

Dear sister,there is no doubt dua does miracles .Allah, Himself has asked His servants to do dua and has promised to fulfill their duas.
According to ahadith duas done in salatul lail (namaze shab) have more chances of being accepted.
We are also told to make nazr(vow) in difficult times and hardships.
Recitation of ziyarate Ashura,dua tawassul is also recommended.

But we should always keep in mind that sometimes the things we ask for are harmful and not good for us. .As the Quran says in sura baqarah Verse 216:
وَعَسَىٰ أَن تَكْرَهُوا شَيْئًا وَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ وَعَسَىٰ أَن تُحِبُّوا شَيْئًا وَهُوَ شَرٌّ لَّكُمْ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ وَأَنتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ
And it may be that you dislike a thing while it is good for you, and it may be that you love a thing while it is evil for you, and Allah knows, while you do not know.
Therefore,our duty is to do dua and leave the rest on Allah s.w.t.

Sukaina Taqawi.
