A Dua to help :ia: :).

رَبِّ اشْرَحْ لِي صَدْرِي وَيَسِّرْ لِي أَمْرِي وَاحْلُلْ عُقْدَةً مِنْ لِسَانِي يَفْقَهُوا قَوْلِي

Rabb-ishrah li sadri, wa yassir li ‘amri, Wah-lul ‘uqdatam-min-li-saani, Yaf-qahuu qawlii

O my Lord! Open for me my chest (grant me self-confidence, contentment, and boldness); Ease my task for me; And remove the impediment from my speech, so they may understand what I say
[Surah Ta-Ha; 20:25-28]

A du’a that Musa (alayhis salam) made when proceeding to the court of Fir’awn (Pharoah) for the arguments (inviting him to Islam)

the root of my anxiety is due to my family and the realtionship between my parents and from childhood I always liked being alone reading books, in other words I am an introvert.
yes I should remind myself of this Dua thank you for reminding me. just this anxiety caused that I avoid women so I dont know how I can get married.

There is nothing wrong at all with being an introvert and reading books, I am one as well. :), As for marriage, as Muslims we should avoid interactions with the opposite sex anyway. Marriage is one of those things we leave to Allah SWT, I do not know how Moroccan culture is but where I am from arranged marriages are quite common, proposals come through friends, or relatives, or usually your parents. When the time comes inshaAllah you will get married.

As for social anxiety, are you just introverted and shy? When I am in a gathering of lots of people or with someone I am not familiar with I am usually very quiet and reserved. I do not feel any lack of confidence Alhamdulillah although my teachers would always complain I am quiet. Some people are more listeners than speakers, not necessarily suffering from social anxiety.

And that dua above is perfect, a personal favourite ma'sha'Allah.
