Making Dua for Wife – Before and After Marriage

The most realistic joy is getting married with a righteous wife. And this is something everyone would expect to get in their lives. A good wife can make your home feel like jannah.

Oppositely, a bad and disobedient wife can make your home feel like hell. So it’s a must that you make sincere dua asking Allah SWT to grant you a religious wife, who will be the sakeena of your eyes.

Now, there is one specific and very famous dua for wife, which you can make whether you’re a married or unmarried person. Apart from this dua, this article will discuss lots of other things to make you eligible for getting a religious wife.

Dua for Finding a Spouse

When it comes to making dua for a new wife, there’s nothing specifically mentioned in the Quran and Hadith. However, you can make the following dua, which is for both unmarried and married individuals –

وَالَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا

“Our Lord, grant us from among our wives and offspring comfort to our eyes and make us an example for the righteous.” (Suratul Furqan: 74)

Whenever you’re to ask a righteous spouse be it after adhan, after obligatory prayers, and during tahajjud times, you can recite this dua while adding your own words.

By making this dua, you’re asking that Allah SWT give you a religious and righteous wife, who will be your sakeena for your eyes and heart.

Apart from making this dua, you should offer Salatul Istikhara, and make the specific dua mentioned in the Hadith for this prayer. This will make sure you’re agreeing with the right marriage proposal.

Dua for the New Wife

As our Prophet Muhammad ﷺ thought us dua for each and every day to day tasks, he also thought a dua for someone who is newly wedd and gets his new wife.

Anyone who gets a new wife, should hold her forelock and say –

“Allaahumma innee as’aluka khayrahaa wa khayra ma jabaltahaa ‘alayh, wa a’oodhu bika min sharrihaa wa sharri ma jabaltahaa ‘alayh

(O Allaah, I ask You for the goodness within her and the goodness that You have made her inclined towards, and I take refuge with You from the evil within her and the evil that You have made her inclined towards).”

(Reported by Abu Dawood, no. 2160; Ibn Maajah, no. 1918)

Dua for Wife from Husband After Marriage

As I said earlier, a good wife can make your home feel like jannah, and this is the same person who can make the home feel like jahannam.

After marriage, it is quite normal to feel sad when you see certain actions or characteristics of your wife. More or less everyone has to deal with their expectations vs reality regarding marriage.

However, making dua along with doing the right things will surely make things easier, and make a way out for you.

Recite the following dua more often after marriage –

وَالَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا

“Our Lord, grant us from among our wives and offspring comfort to our eyes and make us an example for the righteous.” (Suratul Furqan: 74)

Also, if you’re going through any specific issue with your wife, mention your condition in your own words while you make this dua. There are other duas for marriage couples that you can act upon.

Do Your Duties Along with Making Dua

Only the dua will not fix everything if you stay headless about your responsibilities.

For example, if you’re having a bad time with your wife, you’re just making dua, but neglecting her rights and duties towards the family, then it won’t work.

Even if you’re angry with your wife, you should still take care of the duties from your end. Say, if she is sick, you try to feed her, try doing things that will give her comfort.

Doing so will get you two things; your position in the eyes of Allah will increase, and your wife will be impressed, thinking that she is doing wrong stuff, still you’re caring for her. It will force her to change herself.

But, don’t feel frustrated if things don’t get fixed quickly. It can take a few days, weeks, months, or even years depending on what kind of situation you’re going through. The thing is not to force her, rather do everything you can to make her feel that she needs to change.

The thing is to make sure you’re maintaining your part, and making dua consistently. Don’t give much focus on the outcome, stick to the process, the end will be in your favor insha Allah.
