About Marriage (240)
It is reported that the Prophet said: "If one of you marries a woman, or buys a servant, then let him say: 'Allãhumma 'innee 'as'aluka khayrahã, wa khayra mã jabaltahã `alayhi, wa 'a`outhu bika min sharrihã wa sharri mã jabaltahã `alayhi.(250)
and if he purchases a camel, then let him hold it by the tip of its hump , and let him say the same."

(250) O' my ilãh I ask You her goodness, and the goodness of the inborn dispositions which You have given her, and I solicit Your protection from her evil, and the evil dispositions which You have given her.


Reported by Abu Dãwood. Al-Albãni said that it was sound according to the conditions of Al-Bukhãri, and Muslim, and that it was also reported by Muslim. Al-Albãni includedd this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #169.
