It is permissible to make du’aa’ in Arabic and in languages other than Arabic. Allaah knows the intention of the supplicant and what he wants, no matter what language he speaks, because He hears all the voices in all different languages, asking for all kinds of needs.
Allah! I ask of You integrity and soundness in my religion, my life, my family, and my possessions.
O Allah! Cover my shame, pacify my fears, guard me from what is in front of me and behind me, from what is on my right and on my left, over my head and under my feet.
O Allah! Grant health to my body. O Allah grant health to my hearing. O Allah! Grant health to my sight. There is no deity except You.

“A true Muslim is a person who others are safe from his speech and hands.”
“A Muslim does not hate another Muslim.”
“Avoid hatin’ because it devours good deeds like fire devours wood.”
“It is enough of an evil to hate another Muslim in your heart.”
I heard one of my teachers say,
“When someone reads the last verse of the 113th chapter of the Qur’an, he is not only seeking refuge in Allah from haters, but asking to protect others from his hating as well; and to protect him from his own hatin’ because it will inflict considerable damage on his Hereafter. “
Over the years, counsellors and therapists have developed a range of techniques to diagnose problematic marriages.
“Are you to the point that your spouse just can’t do anything right, does everything they do get under your skin? Does everything lead to an argument? Would you rather be anywhere than with your spouse? Are thoughts of divorce running through your mind on a regular basis?”

With the completion of the Great Pilgrimage to Makkah and the international days of sacrifice and giving, Muslms need to focus on positive actions and never forget that our glorious past can be reborn if we re-institute the righteous intentions, character, actions of successful Muslim experiences. Go through the Door of rituals into the dynamic spirit of Islam.

Pleasing Allah is NOT dependent on pleasing people. Say this a million times, until you absorb it! We *can’t* please people. We can only do our part, as best we can, for the sake of Allah. The result comes from Allah. Not from us. If we are not successful at pleasing people, it does NOT mean we’ve failed! You have not failed. You are not a failure. You need to start to accept and value who you are. You need to value yourself. And stop trying to mold yourself into what you are not, in order to please those around you. Your goal is to please Allah and Allah did not ask you to become something you’re not. Nor did Allah expect you to please people. That’s not your job. Your job is to please Him.

Thank you for your question.
1. Make the Quran and Sunnah your source, foundation, and judge in all of your affairs.
2. Focus on the things you love about your spouse and do not focus on flaws.
3. Healthy communication! Don’t be afraid to healthily voice your concerns to one another.
4. Worship Allah together. A family that prays together stays together because love for Allah unites the hearts.
5. Don’t air your dirty laundry. When you have issues try to resolve internally instead of embarrassing your spouse.
And Allah knows best.
