Marriage is one of the most significant events in a person’s life. It marks the beginning of a new chapter, a new journey with a partner, and a commitment to building a life together. However, finding the right partner and getting married is not always easy. It can be a long and challenging process, and sometimes, it can even seem impossible.
Many people turn to Allah for guidance and support when it comes to finding their life partner. In Islam, dua for marriage or general dua is an essential practice for those seeking a spouse. It is a powerful tool that can help individuals find the right partner, overcome obstacles, and strengthen their relationship with Allah (SWT).
Is There Any Specific Dua For Marriage?
The short answer is there is not, as far as we know, any dua for marriage that has been reported from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), but you can pray to Allah to bless you with a righteous spouse.
Duas For Marriage
When asking Allah, you should raise your hands and you praise Allah and offer salutations to the prophet Muhammad SAW.
You should ask Allah to send you someone who fears Allah, who is practicing, and who would make you happy in this life and the hereafter.
You can recite general duas, such as:
رَبِّ إِنِّى لِمَآ أَنزَلۡتَ إِلَىَّ مِنۡ خَيۡرٍ فَقِيرٌ
Rabbi innee lima anzalta ilayya min khayrin faqeer.
Meaning in English
Oh My Lord! I am in need of whatever good You may send to me.
This Dua changed Prophet Musa’s life, so hold onto it when you face impossible circumstances. The Dua is in surah Qasas verse 24.
When prophet Musa (AS) arrived at Madyan, he had nothing; no food, no shelter, nowhere to go.
But when he recited “RABBI INNEE LIMA ANZALTA ILAYYA MIN KHAIRIN FAQEER” which translates to “My Lord, indeed I am, for whatever good You would send down to me, in need.“, he was given a wife, a life, a purpose, a message, and a companion.
So, emulate prophet Musa and recite it, perhaps your wishes would be granted.
رَبِّ لا تَذَرنى فَردًا وَأَنتَ خَيرُ الوٰرِثينَ
Rabbi la tatharnee fardan waanta khayru alwaritheen.
The meaning of Rabbi la tazarni in English is Oh my Lord do not leave me alone and You are the best of inheritors.
This is a beautiful dua which prophet Zakariyya did to ask Allah for a child.
رَبَّنَآ ءَاتِنَا فِى ٱلدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِى ٱلْـَٔاخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ ٱلنَّارِ
Rabbana Atina Fid Dunya Hasanatan wa fil akhirati hasanatan wa qina azaban naar.
Our Lord, give us in this world [that which is] good and in the Hereafter [that which is] good and protect us from the punishment of the Fire.
This supplication is not only one of the most beautiful supplications; rather, is the most comprehensive dua because it covers every matter in Dunya and hereafter.
The good that is sought in (Dunya) this world encompasses all the good of this life and includes everything that is liked by people, such as
- Righteous wife or husband

Rabbana Hablana min Azwajina wa zurriyyatinaa qurrata a’ayun, waaj’alnaa lil muttaqeen imaamaa.
Meaning In English
