|Authentic Supplications of the Prophet
About Marriage (240)
| It is reported that the Prophet
said: "If one of you marries a woman, or buys a servant, then let
him say: 'Allãhumma 'innee 'as'aluka khayrahã, wa
khayra mã jabaltahã `alayhi, wa 'a`outhu bika min sharrihã
wa sharri mã jabaltahã `alayhi.(250)
and if he purchases a camel, then let him hold it by the tip of its
hump , and let him say the same."
(250) O' my ilãh I ask
You her goodness, and the goodness of the inborn dispositions which
You have given her, and I solicit Your protection from her evil,
and the evil dispositions which You have given her.
Reported by Abu Dãwood. Al-Albãni said that it was
sound according to the conditions of Al-Bukhãri, and Muslim,
and that it was also reported by Muslim. Al-Albãni includedd
this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #169.
