Title: Is there any good dua to remarry?


Assalam Dear Imam Saheb,

May the mercy of Allah Ta'ala be upon you. Ameen.


My wife passed away 15 months ago. I wish to re-married. Kindly advise a du'a suitable for this action of mine. JazakumuLlahu khairan kasira. Wassalam.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

May Allah grant your wife Jannatul Firdaus.  Aameen.

Recite the following dua:

اللَّهُمَّ أْجُرْنِي فِي مُصِيبَتِي وَأَخْلِفْ لِي خَيْرًا مِنْهَا ‏ 


Allahumma Ajirni Fi Musibati Wakhlif Li Khayraam Minha


O Allah, reward me for my affliction and give me something better than it in exchange for it"

The background of this dua is when Hadhrat Abu Salama [Radhiallahu Anhu] passed away, Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wa- Sallam told Hadhrat Umme Salama [Radhiallahu Anha] to recite the above dua and Allah granted her Rasulullah (ﷺ) as her husband.[1]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

[1] صحيح مسلم (2/ 631)

حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ أَيُّوبَ، وَقُتَيْبَةُ، وَابْنُ حُجْرٍ، جَمِيعًا عَنْ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ جَعْفَرٍ، قَالَ ابْنُ أَيُّوبَ: حَدَّثَنَا إِسْمَاعِيلُ، أَخْبَرَنِي سَعْدُ بْنُ سَعِيدٍ، عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ كَثِيرِ بْنِ أَفْلَحَ، عَنْ ابْنَ سَفِينَةَ، عَنْ أُمِّ سَلَمَةَ، أَنَّهَا قَالَتْ: سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، يَقُولُ: " مَا مِنْ مُسْلِمٍ تُصِيبُهُ مُصِيبَةٌ، فَيَقُولُ مَا أَمَرَهُ اللهُ: {إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ} [البقرة: 156]، اللهُمَّ أْجُرْنِي فِي مُصِيبَتِي، وَأَخْلِفْ لِي خَيْرًا مِنْهَا، إِلَّا أَخْلَفَ اللهُ لَهُ خَيْرًا مِنْهَا "، قَالَتْ: فَلَمَّا مَاتَ أَبُو سَلَمَةَ، قُلْتُ: أَيُّ الْمُسْلِمِينَ خَيْرٌ مِنْ أَبِي سَلَمَةَ؟ أَوَّلُ بَيْتٍ هَاجَرَ إِلَى رَسُولِ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، ثُمَّ إِنِّي قُلْتُهَا، فَأَخْلَفَ اللهُ لِي رَسُولَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، قَالَتْ: أَرْسَلَ إِلَيَّ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ حَاطِبَ بْنَ أَبِي بَلْتَعَةَ يَخْطُبُنِي لَهُ، فَقُلْتُ: إِنَّ لِي بِنْتًا وَأَنَا غَيُورٌ، فَقَالَ: «أَمَّا ابْنَتُهَا فَنَدْعُو اللهَ أَنْ يُغْنِيَهَا عَنْهَا، وَأَدْعُو اللهَ أَنْ يَذْهَبَ بِالْغَيْرَةِ»
