    Wazifa is recitation of any dua which is practiced regularly (sometime for a specific period of time, e.g. for three, seven or forty days, and/or regularly without any specific time). Dua is a recitation to Allah for one time, like we do after our prayer or at any time.

    To fulfil our desires we pray, make Dua. But sometimes when we don't get these needs, we recite Wazifa. Reciting a verse of Quran or any recommended Dua for a particular period of time or a particular number is called Wazifa.
    E.g: Wazifa for marriage/job/any wish etc
