Marriage is sunnah and a virtuous practice which preserves a believer? chastity. So, when he enters the room in first night after marriage, first he should greet his bride then they should perform two Rakats of salah, in a way that bride should stand behind him. After salah, they should pray to Allah for happy marital life and then he should catch some hairs of her forehead and recite this Dua ?llahumma inni as'aluka khairaha wa khairi ma jabaltaha alaihi, wa a`oozubika min sharriha wa sharri ma jabaltaha `alaihi.? (O Allah! I ask You for the good in her and the good that You have endowed her with and I seek your protection from her evil and the evil that You have placed within her.) He should show love and ensure her for her respectful long life journey with him. Before making physical relation, he should say Bismillah and recite the following dua: ?llahumma Jannibnash Shaitana wa jannibish shaitana marazaqtana.?He should avoid facing Qibla during intercourse. None of the spouse, should disclose to their friends what they talk or do in privacy.
