Will Allah punish the children for the parents wrongdoing?

Question ID: 23998

I have 2 questions:
(1) I saw your compilation of wazeefas for marriage. The wazeefa is for 40 days. It says do not read any wazeefa or touch quran or taweezat etc without wudu. Does it mean I skip reading the wazeefa during those days (period)? And then, start it again from where I left off? Pls reply asap as I want to start wazeefa in ramadan.

(2) I have passed marriage age, tried everything but can’t find the match. My father hardly ever offer namaz or fast. Mother offers namaz and she performs many duas wazeefas for her children. All of us children are in hardship. for e.g. my biggest problem is marriage. Since our father do not perform the basics of islam, I suspect if Allah is punishing him by putting his children in problem? Are kids punished for the wrong deeds of parents? We encourage him to offer namaz, but it doesnt work. What can we read so that he turns pious? Can you plz keep him in your prayers for him to turn pious. His name is A. Razak.

1) Continue even in Haiz
2) Increase reciting Quraan and performance of Salaat at home. The situation will improve. We will make Duaa. Do not be disheartened.
