Duas for a Happy Married Life Making dua or supplication is one of the most likable act by Allah Almighty. Allah has permitted His servants to ask for anything of this world or the next and in return, He has promised that He will either answer our prayers or reward us for His remembrance. Abu Hurairah [may Allah be pleased with him] narrated that:
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: “Whoever wishes that Allah would respond to him during hardship and grief, then let him supplicate plentifully when at ease.” (Jami` at-Tirmidhi 3382)
While searching for supplications for ensuring happiness in marriage, you will probably find numerous recommendations in different Islamic books and webpages. Some will suggest you read a particular Surah (Chapter) or Ayah (Verse) for a specific number of times that will give you a spouse of your desire or solve all your marital problems. But it is hard to authenticate the truth from falsehood due to lack of reference, which leaves a doubt that whether this way of reading is allowed or in accordance with the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)?
One thing I have seen the Muslims of this generation indulged in are practices that are not part of the teachings of the Holy Quran and the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). These are termed as Bidah, which means innovation. Bidah is severely disliked, and Allah Almighty has cursed those who introduce novelty in Islam even under the pretext that it is a good deed. According to the hadith narrated by Aishah (RA)
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “Whoever innovates something in this matter of ours (i.e. Islam) that is not part of it, will have it rejected.”
Therefore while doing a good deed, it is an obligation upon every Muslim to avoid supplications that are not backed by the Holy Quran and Hadith. Following the above-mentioned hadith here are specific duas that the couples should invocate for a happy married life and for uncountable blessings in marriage.
