We often hear the du’a ‘Barakallahu laka wa baraka ‘alayka wa jama’a baynakuma fil khayr’ after a nikah. is this du’a proven in Hadith?
Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates:
“When Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would supplicate for the newlywed, he would say ‘Barakallahu laka wa baraka ‘alayka wa jama’a baynakuma fil khayr‘.
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1091, Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 2123 and Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 1905. Also see Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 5155 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1427)
Imam Tirmidhi has declared this Hadith authentic.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
