Question:

Is reading two rakats of Salah together on the first night of marriage a recommended practice?

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Answer:

 The performance of two Rakats together is an action encouraged by the noble companion Abdullah ibn Mas’ud.

Sayyiduna Abu Wail narrates that a man came to Sayyiduna Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu’anhu) from Bajilah and said: ‘I am marrying a virgin girl, and I fear that she may dislike me, so ‘Abdullah mentioned: ‘Love is from Allah, and dislike is [caused] from Shaytan so he may make unattractive what Allah has made permissible for a person. When she enters, command her to perform two rak’ats behind you.’ (Musannaf Ibn Shaibah)
