- Can we change our destiny by “dua”? 7 answers
I read somewhere that only Dua can change the qadr and it is always encouraged to make Dua to Allah for every need, in every situation. But today I have learnt some mufti saying there are two types of qadr, ones that are absolute like time of birth,death n marriage. And these cannot be changed through Dua. Then if a person say for example, make Dua for a long life what would happen? Or, if a person makes Dua to marry a certain person/ person with certain qualities would that have no effect? I mean if these things falls under the category of absolute qadr on which Dua has no effect then why should people make Dua about them?
