Shaykh Zulfiqar Ahmad D.B mentioned the following prescription in one of his discourses:
“In many homes the condition of marital relationships are not very favourable. In some cases it is due to the wife’s faults and in some cases it is due to the husband’s faults and in some cases both are at fault. To resolve this there is an amal (practice) which I would like to give permission to the people to perform. Those who are married should definitely do it and those who are of an understanding age (close to marriage) must also do it and Inshaa-Allah, if Allah Almighty grants them the opportunity of having their own home one day, they too will find happiness.
This Aajiz (humble servant) was given permission to do this Amal by a certain Buzurg (pious person). After practicing this Amal this Aajiz also found sukoon (tranquility) and all troubles were removed. Therefore you are also advised to do this practice: It is as follows:
Whenever you perform any Salaah – be it Fardh (compulsory), Waajib, Sunnah, or Nafl (optional) – in the final sitting (At-Tahiyyaat) when you are reciting Rabbana-Aatina…, Rabbij Alnee… or other Du’aas (supplications) before turning the head for Salaam recite this Du’aa also:
رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا
“Rabbana Hab Lana Min Azwaajina Wa Dhurriy-yaatina Qurrata A’ayuniw- Waj ‘alna lil Muttaqeena Imaamaa”
“Our Lord! Bestow on us from our spouses and our offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and make us leaders for the Muttaqun/Righteous ones.” (Al-Furqan 25:74)
By reciting this Du’aa, Allah Rabbul Izzah will cause all the members of your household to be the coolness of your eyes.
All those who have listened to this have the Ijaazah (permission) to carry out this Amal (practice).
May Allah Rabbul Izzah bless all with Barakah (divine blessing) and fill homes with tranquillity.”
