Nikah is such an important commandment of Allah that it comprises half of the Deen of a Muslim. This is the reason that it is so crucial to seek Allah’s blessings at every step. Whenever you are invited to attend a Nikah, how many of you remember to recite the Du’a for the bride and groom. You all will agree that Du’a is the greatest gift and stands above all. Wondering what Du’a to make for the newly married couple? Keep reading below.
Abu Hurairah narrated that:
When supplicating for the newlywed, the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) would say, “Barak Allahu laka wa baraka alaik, wa jama’a bainakuma fi khair” whihc means
“May Allah bless you and send blessings upon you, and bring goodness between you.”
Learn this Du’a and recite it every time that you attend a Nikah. Seek Allah’s blessings to help the couple start their new journey with prosperity. The blessings and the miracle of the Du’a will help the couple to stay united their whole life. No evil eye can ruin their togetherness and prosperity in the future.
Another important occasion when you can remember to bless the bride with your genuine prayers is at the bridal party. It is an occasion before Nikah when all women are gathered to celebrate new beginnings for the bride. It is the time when the bride-to-be is emotional and feels nostalgic with her friends and loved ones.
On this occasion, you can recite the Du’a “Alal khair wal barokah, wa ‘ala khair tahir.” which means May you prosper and have blessings and have good omen.
These are some of the small gestures that you can remember as a part of your gift to the newlyweds. Both the bride and groom are excited and nervous to walk on this new path. Only Allah and His blessings can bring peace and ease to their hearts.
