Prayers and prayers on the night of the wedding

It was proven on the authority of some of the predecessors – may God be pleased with them – to pray two rak’ahs on the wedding night, and it is also desirable to supplicate on the night of the wedding by saying:[1] It is also mustahabb to supplicate during intercourse by saying:[2] The supplication is made in a moderate voice, not in faintness or out loud, as other hadiths indicate that the name of God is mentioned before or at intercourse with the wife, and that is also lawful for the wife, and in this is an achievement of blessing and a blessing for her from God Almighty, and it should be noted that supplication is not associated with intercourse. If the husband repeats the supplication and then refrains from intercourse, there is nothing wrong with that, as it should be noted that the second supplication mentioned above is not limited to the wedding night only, but is prescribed for every intercourse, while the supplication mentioned first and the two rak’ahs of prayer on the night of the wedding take place only.[3]
