I have done many business but I am always in loss. I have been cheated by all of whom I deal and do business. I am offering namaz 4 rakahs daily since last 3 years so that I recover my money from all defaulters which is around Rs 15 lacs. Please advise, I am frustrated and becoming hopeless that why my duas are not fulfilling, I have also done niyah to donate 50000 as Lillah from my total amount. I donate 5% as Lillah from my salary also, because now I am doing job after closing all my business. One thing that I want to ask is that my mother always used to curse me and say that "Why you born in my house, you won’t get poison to eat in your life so and so etc in anger and due to high blood pressure, now she is normal, but does that baddua is bothering me or what I don't understand. Please advise.

In case you have hurt your mother in any way, you should first ask her forgiveness and keep on supplicating. You need not give up and be hopeless. If a man supplicates wholeheartedly and does not commit an act that may be an obstacle in the acceptance of dua then his supplication is answered for sure. A believer who supplicates receives one of three things: Either he gets exactly what he asked for or some hardship or calamity is removed from him in return of his supplication or some certain reward is recorded for him in the Hereafter.
According to a narration: Allah shall call the slave on the Day of Judgement and say, “O My slave I ordered you to supplicate and promised to accept it”. Did you supplicate? He will say, “Yes.” Thereupon Allah will say none of your supplication was rejected. You supplicated that so and so pain should be removed and I answered it in the world. You supplicated to remove so and so pain but it was not removed, but I have recorded so and so reward for you in hereafter for the same. The holy Prophet Muhammad (may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said that each and every supplication shall be reminded him and he will also be reminded if it was answered in the world or its reward will be given in hereafter. On seeing the plentiful reward he would yearn would that none of his supplications would have been answered in the world so that he could get its reward in the hereafter.
Allah knows Best!
