Are du’as accepted at the time of marriage?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

I heard that du’a is accepted in the gathering where Nikah takes place.

Is this mentioned in a sahih Hadith and is is it permissible to quote the Hadith?

Jazakum Allahu Khair.


I haven’t seen any clear hadith stating such.

However, when a congregation of muslims are present and they all make collective du’a, by one of them reciting the du’a and the rest saying amin, Allah Ta’ala readily accepts it.

(Mustadrak Hakim, vol.3 pg.347 & Al-Mu’jamul Kabir of Tabarani, hadith: 3536 with a sound (hasan) chain, see Majma’uz Zawaid, vol.10 pg.170)

Generally at the time of nikah, there is always a good number of people present, and therefore -based on the above hadith- du’as will be accepted at that time insha Allah.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
