How ignorant people wish to newly wed

It is essential for us Muslims to follow the teachings of the Prophet (ﷺ) in his example, invoke blessings, and pray for a good marriage of their brothers and sisters in faith.

Nowadays, people think they live in a modern society and do things as per the Western culture. For instance, people now wish the newlywed couple by saying, “Live in Harmony and beget sons.” 

But this is objectionable; it should be dealt with with wisdom. This evil and disgraceful custom was widespread in the early days of Ignorance and these days as well. 

The wisdom behind the prohibition of this wish to the newlywed couple is mainly to differentiate the people of Ignorance who used to use this supplication to wish from those who are god-fearing, the righteous ones.

This wish voids a few reasons:

  • This wish might not be effective because it asks explicitly for boys and doesn’t include a request for girls.
  • Finally, there is no mention of Allah, and there comes Satan with his evil conspiracies.

A good woman is like the strong base of a Muslim family. She brings happiness to a man’s life, as the Prophet (ﷺ) once said: “In this world, we have temporary comforts, and the most comforting thing is a righteous woman.”


Islamic Principles for newlywed Couples

In a happy marriage, we learn from the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) in the Quran and Sunnah. Let’s explore ten important things for a joyful marriage:

  1. Faith and Godliness (Taqwa): Having a strong connection with Allah is like the base of a building. It helps husbands and wives be kind and supportive to each other.
  2. Talking Together (Communication): It’s important to talk openly and honestly. When we share our feelings and thoughts with respect, we create a good understanding between us.
  3. Being Patient and Understanding (Patience and Tolerance): Marriage can have tough times. Being patient and understanding helps us go through these times together and still be happy.
  4. Feeling for Each Other (Compassion and Empathy): Understanding how the other person feels and thinks helps us love each other more. It’s like having a strong friendship.
  5. Respecting Each Other (Mutual Respect): Respecting what the other person thinks or chooses is really important. Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) taught us to respect each other to keep our marriage happy.
  6. Thanking Each Other (Gratitude): Saying “thank you” for the small and big things makes our marriage better. It’s like planting seeds of happiness.
  7. Spending Good Time Together (Quality Time): Doing things together, talking, and enjoying each other’s company makes our bond stronger. It’s like building a strong bridge between us.
  8. Forgiving and Saying Sorry (Forgiveness): We all make mistakes. Saying sorry and forgiving each other helps us heal and become better together.
  9. Helping Each Other (Supportive Partnership): Thinking of marriage as a team helps us support each other’s dreams. Encouraging each other makes our marriage a happy place.
  10. Showing Love and Closeness (Romance and Intimacy): Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) told us it’s good to show love. Being romantic and close helps us stay emotionally and physically connected.

Dua for newly married couple in english

In Islam, there is certain etiquette for everything we do that we have learned from the Prophet (ﷺ). Similarly, when someone marries and wishes to consummate, he should do it based on Islamic principles.

Before being close together, you should gently put your hand on the front part of her head.

While doing this, you should say the name of Allah Most High and ask Allah for blessings. This is something the Prophet (ﷺ) taught us to do. The Prophet (ﷺ) said,

“When any of you gets married, he should gently place his hand on the front part of his wife’s head, mention Allah Most High, and pray for His blessings, saying:

‘O Allah, I ask You for the goodness within her and the goodness with which You have created her. I seek refuge in You from any negativity within her and from any negativity with which You have created her.'”

This is a special way to start a new chapter in life with Allah’s guidance and blessings.

Prayer for love and understanding

It is a blessed practice for the husband and wife to perform two units of prayer together on their wedding night. This noble tradition has been passed down from the earliest generations of Muslims, as evidenced by the following narrations:

Second Narration: Shaqeeq conveyed, “A man named Abu Hareez approached and expressed his concern, saying, ‘I have married a young girl, and I fear she may dislike me.’ Abdullah ibn Mas’ood advised him, ‘Certainly, closeness comes from Allah, while hatred is from Satan, who desires to vilify what Allah has permitted.

Therefore, when your wife joins you, instruct her to perform two units of prayer behind you.'” In another version of the same account, Abdullah continued, “‘And say: ‘O Allah, bestow Your blessings upon me through my wife, and upon her through me.

O Allah, unite us as long as our unity is in goodness, and separate us if You bring something better for us.'” [Reported by Ibn Abi Shaibah, at-Tabaraani, and ‘Abdur-Razzaaq; Authenticated as Saheeh]

Prayers for patience and tolerance

Patience or Sabr can be defined as a manner of spiritual superiority by which we refrain from doing evil. Patience or Sabr means keeping calmly content while facing afflictions of this worldly life; after all, it is just a test from the Almighty.

Protection from evil eye and negativity

Magic and the evil eye are real things, even if some may doubt their existence. These troubles affect people, yet some hesitate to acknowledge their reality. The evil eye and black magic can harm individuals in different ways.

There are two types of evil eye (ayn):

  1. The evil eye that comes from other people.
  2. The evil eye that comes from the jinn.

The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) taught us about the reality of the evil eye through his sayings. An example is the story of Sahl ibn Hunayf, who fell ill after someone admired his beautiful skin. The Prophet (ﷺ) advised using the words, “May Allah bless you” to avoid causing harm to others.

To protect ourselves from the evil eye, we can follow these steps:

  1. Avoid engaging in forbidden actions, as mentioned in the Quran.
  2. Stay in a state of wudu (ritual ablution) as much as possible, as it has benefits beyond our understanding.
  3. Perform the night prayer (Namaz-e-Shab) for its numerous benefits.
  4. Recite specific Surahs, such as Al-Falaq, An-Nas, Ayatul-Kursi, Al-Ikhlas, and Al-Fatiha.
