Question: Is there any dua (supplication) to find a good husband?

We are to use our God-given resources and expend our best efforts while praying to Allah for guiding and blessing us to realize all legitimate aspirations and dreams. The Prophet, peace be upon him, said, “Look and aspire for what is most beneficial (for you) and seek the help of Allah (while putting forth the best of your efforts, and never feign helplessness.” If, having done that, your efforts do not materialize, simply say, ‘that was God’s will.” In other words, simply praying without putting forth our best efforts is not the way of Islam as taught by our beloved Prophet, upon whom be Allah’s blessings and peace. So I advise you never give up prayer, but while doing so never be slack in doing your best to achieve your desired goal:

Here are some suggested ways:
1. Ask the people who are in positions of authority (such as Imams, leaders in the community, elderly people who can be trusted) to help you in your search for a good husband;
2. Try to utilize the opportunities available in your community to meet prospective marriage candidates; such avenues include: marriage seminars, conferences, seminars, lectures, get-togethers, etc.
While trying your best, never stop praying unceasingly to Allah to grant you your wish. In order to do this, you may use any of the relevant prayers or supplications or improvise your own; for du’as can be made in your own mother tongue and there is no taboo on praying for things of this world and other world. I can list below a few du’as which can be used for this purpose:

Rabbi innee limaa anzalta ilayya min kharyin faqeer
(My Lord, I am ever needful of any favor that You may send my way!)

Allahumma rahmataka arjoo falaa takilnee ilaa nafsee tarafata aynin wa aslih lee sha’nee kullahu
(O Allah, I beseech Your mercy; so do not abandon me to my own devices even for an instant; and straighten all of my affairs for me)

Allaahumma aghninee bi halaalika an haraamika wa bi ta’atika an ma’siyatika wa bi fadhlika amman siwaaka
(O Allah, make me self-sufficient with what You have declared as halaal for me so that I am not compelled to resort to that which is haraam; and make me self-sufficient with Your obedience so that I am not compelled to disobey You; and make me self-sufficient with Your favor so that I do not need to look to others for favor).

While you may read any of the above with the purpose you have in mind at all times, however, you are best advised to do so following two rak’ahs of salatul hajah.

I pray to Allah to grant you your wish. May He accept our prayers and grant us all the best of both worlds-aameen.
