A Prayer for Newlyweds

Chosen by Mohamed Baianonie, Imam at the Islamic Center of Raleigh, NC

 

All praises and thanks to Allaah, the Lord of all that exists, and peace and blessings upon His Messenger Muhammad.
O' our Lord! Give us in this world, that which is good and in the Hereafter, that which is good and save us from the torment of the Fire.
O' our Lord! Bestow on us spouses and offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and make us leaders for the pious people.
O' Allaah, You are the One who created for us wives from among ourselves; that we may find repose in them; place between us affection and mercy.
O' Allaah, bless these newlyweds, and shower Your blessings upon them and join them together in goodness.
O' Allaah, bond this couple together as you have bonded the soul with the body, and bless them with righteous children.
O' Allaah, make these newlyweds and all of us from among those who obey You and obey Your Messenger; and make us from among those who strive to attain Your pleasure and keep us away from Your wrath. Surely we are from You and for You.
O' Allaah, bless our dear leader the prophet Muhammad, his family, his companions, his wives, his descendants and salute them all with a worthy salutation.
"Aameen"
