What deeds, or acts of worship could I carry out to bring about a suitable marriage?
In the Name of Allah, the All-Beneficent, the All-Merciful.
May Allah bless Muhammad and his Family and damn their enemies.
Sheikh al-Habib recommends the following A’mal (acts of worship):
- Recite the following verse 14 times after every prayer:
Rabbi Lā Tadharnī Fardaw-Wa ‘Anta Khayr-ul-Wārithīn
My Lord, leave me not alone; and You are the best of inheritors.
Allāhumma Inni Atawajahu llayka Be Nabi-yyeka Nabi-yyir-Rahmati Muhammadin Sal-lal-Llāho ‘Alaihi Wa Aālihi, Wa Be Ahli Baytihi-l-ladheena-khtartahum
Alá-l-Ālamīn, Aliyi-w-Wa Fatimata Wal Hassani Wal Hussaini Wal `A’imati Alayhimu-s-salam, An Taghfira li Wa-Tarhamani Wa Tuzawwijani Rajulam-mu’minan Sālihan Tardhāh, Wa Ṣalli ‘Alā Muhammadi-w-Wa Ālihi-t-Tāhireen Wal’an A’da Ahum Ajma’een.
O’ Allah, I turn towards You, through Your Prophet, the Prophet of Mercy, Muhammad, may Allah bless him and his Progeny, and through his pure household, whom You have chosen, having knowledge, above all the worlds, Ali, Fatima, Hassan, Hussain and the Imams, peace be upon them, that You may forgive me, have mercy upon me and get me married to a believing and righteous man whom You are pleased with, and send Your blessings on Muhammad and his pure Progeny, and Your damnations upon their enemies.
2. Recite ‘Ziyarat ‘Ashura’ in full for 40 consecutive nights at a specific hour, e.g., 11:00 P.M. every night, and make sure you recite the La’an (sending of curses) and Salam (sending of peace) 100 times. After you finish reciting the Ziyarah, offer the two-Rak’a prayer of Ziyarah and then recite ‘Du’a ‘Alqamah’. Thereupon, implore Allah, the Most Exalted, whole-heartedly to fulfil your need.
