Title: What are the duas for getting married?


What are the duas for getting marriage ??to avoid sins.


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

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

Adopt all means to get married. Also, make dua to Allah to guide one to a suitable spouse. The following duas are effective for that

اللهم آتنا في الدنيا حسنة و في الآخرة حسنة و قنا عذاب النار.

 Transliteration: “Allahuma Athina Fid dunya Hasanah wa fil aakhirati hasanah wa Qina adhaaban naar”

Translation: “Oh Allah! Grant us goodness in this world and goodness in the Hereafter and protect us from the punishment of the Hellfire” (Bukhari, #6389, Muslim, # 2690)[1]

لا اله الا أنت سبحانك اني كنت من الظالمين


 Transliteration: “Laa Ilaha Illa anta subhanaka inny kuntu minaz zaalimeen” 

Translation: “There is no deity besides you, you are glorified, indeed I am from the oppressed”

This is the Dua that Hadhrat Yunus (Alayhi al- Salam)  made when he was in the belly of the whale. Rasullullah    said

فَإِنَّهُ لَمْ يَدْعُ بِهَا رَجُلٌ مُسْلِمٌ فِي شَيْءٍ قَطُّ إِلاَّ اسْتَجَابَ اللَّهُ لَهُ ‏"

“So indeed, no Muslim man supplicates with it for anything, ever, except Allah responds to him.” (Tirmidhi Hadith # 3500)

ربي اني لما انزلت الي من خير فقير

Transliteration: “Inni Lima anzalat illayye min khairin faqeer”

Translation: “Indeed I am in need of goodness” ( Surah Qasas Ayat 24)

 Moosa (Alayhi al- Salam) read this Du’aa at the time of difficulty and was relieved of his difficulty.

Recite Durood and Salaam 500 times daily upon Rasulullah .


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

وقد جاءت عن السلف عبارات مختلفة؛ فقال الحسن: الحسنة العلم والعبادة في الدنيا، وفي الآخرة الجنة. أخرجه ابن أبي حاتم بسند صحيح (2)، وعنه بسند ضعيف (3): الرزق الطب والعلم النافع، وفي الآخرة الجنة. وتفسير الحسنة في الآخرة بالجنة، نقله ابن أبي حاتم (4) أيضًا عن السدّي ومجاهد وإسماعيل بن أبي خالد ومقاتل بن حيان. وعن ابن الزبير (5): يعملون في دنياهم وآخرتهم. وعن قتادة (6): هي العافية في الدنيا والآخرة. وعن محمد بن كعب القرظي (7): الزوجة الصالحة من الحسنات
