By Imam Adam Jamal

There is no specific du’a that has been narrated from the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) for an engagement ceremony.

However we can make any du’a for happy occasions and this is one of them:

Du’a for engagement

  1. Say Bismillah
  2. Read Surah Al-Fatihah

English du’as

  1. “O Allah, bless their engagement and let it be a source of great happiness, peace, love, and unity for both of them. Guide them and grant them wisdom, patience, understanding, and mutual respect. Make their relationship a means of bringing them closer to You. O Allah, as you have brought them together in this world, unite them in Jannah.”
  2. “O Allah, as you have guided them to each other, guide them through the journey of their life together. Fill their hearts with unending love and compassion for each other. Let their love for each other be a source of strength and bond that holds them together in times of ease and hardship.”
  3. “O Allah, let their engagement be the beginning of a journey filled with love, trust, understanding, and growth. Empower them to fulfill their obligations towards each other and towards You. Make their home a haven of peace, tranquility, and a beacon of Your light.”
  4. “O Allah, grant them patience to overcome any trials and tribulations they may face. Strengthen their bond as they navigate through life’s challenges. Bestow upon them Your mercy and blessings in every step they take together.”
  5. “O Allah, make their relationship a source of inspiration for others, embodying kindness, love, patience, and mutual respect. Let their journey together serve as a testimony of Your divine guidance and blessings.”
  6. “O Allah, make their hearts homes for each other, where they find peace, comfort, and love. Bestow upon them wisdom and understanding to always resolve their differences in the light of Your guidance.”
