Badduaa/ Baddua Meaning [बद्दुआ]

Badduaa is an Urdu word which is made by prefixing bad- [बद-] which literally means the same as English bad, to duaa [दुआ], which means blessing. [Google Translate may tell you that duaa is a prayer, but that is more the case with the verb, as in, Duaa karnaa. When used as a noun, it mostly means a blessing.]

Anyway, so it's bad+duaa, that is curse. Hence the word.

An example could be, 'Aisa bura kaam na karna, baddua lagegi,' which would translate to, 'Don't do such bad thing, you'll be cursed.'
