'Amr ibn Shu'aib on his father's authority said that his grandfather (Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As) reported the Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
If one of you marries a woman or buys a slave, he should say: "O Allah, I ask You for the good in her, and in the disposition You have given her; I take refuge in You from the evil in her, and in the disposition You have given her." When he buys a camel, he should take hold of the top of its hump and say the same kind of thing.
Abu Dawud said: Abu Sa'id added the following words in his version: He should then hold her forelock and pray for blessing in the case of a woman or a slave.
The good woman is one of the blessings of this world because man feels comfortable with her, depends on her in terms of protecting his house and managing his affairs and raising his children. He assumes to find the good treatment with which every good woman treats her husband. Therefore, he exerts his efforts in choosing the good wife. She is the best thing that comes after fearing Allah the Almighty
The Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “If one of you marries a woman” that is, if he is in a seclusion with her, then he shall hold her forelock and supplicate with this du'aa ', after he praises Allah with his heart and tongue and then send the prayers and peace of Allah upon the Messenger of Allah - as is known when starting the du'aa '.
Then to supplicate O Allah, I ask you to benefit me with her, so make it a fortress for me from what you deemed unlawful, and suffice me with her from looking for what I can not look at.", O Allah allow me to enjoy her money and beauty - if she is rich and beautiful – remove my anxiety with her sweet words, guide her to obey you then to obey me, provide us with the righteous boys and girls, in addition to the other demands that one recalls while supplicating Allah; the goodness is a comprehensive term that encompasses all this and others .
It is dearer to Allah to repeat the words of the Messenger of Allah or their meanings. Moreover, one shall persistently supplicate Allah to have his supplication answered.
As well one shall include his wife in his supplication.
It is recommended for her to supplicate for herself with what he supplicates for himself.
The supplication in this case brings tranquility to the couple and makes them more intimate, as each of them feels the care of the other partner to get good from him in this life and in the Hereafter.
This du'aa 'is not limited to the first night of the marriage, but it is required when each of them feels something of evil or is afraid to have sex with his/her spouse. Yet, in the first night it is highly recommended.
