Hadith About Prayer Before Sex

The hadith about prayer before sex that I mean is as follows:

رَوَى ابْنُ عَبَّاسٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : لَوْ أَنَّ أَحَدَكُمْ إِذَا أَرَادَ أَنْ يَأْتِيَ أَهْلَهُ قَالَ : اللَّهُمَّ جَنِّبْنَا مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ وَجَنِّبِ الشَّيْطَانَ مَا رَزَقْتَنَا , فَإِنَّهُ إِنْ يُقَدَّرَ بَيْنَهُمَا وَلَدٌ فِيْ ذَلِكَ لَمْ يَضُرُّهُ الشَّيْطَانُ أَبَدًا . مُتَّفَقٌ عَلَيْهِ

From Ibn Abbas radliyallaahu ‘anhuma, he said, “The Messenger of Allah sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said, “If one of you came to his family, then he prayed, “O Allah, keep us from Satan and keep Satan from what you have given to us,” if they both had the will because of the relationship (sex), then Satan would not be able to endanger him (the child) forever.” The hadith was narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim.

All Readers! The above hadith explains about prayer before sex and the kindness that will be obtained by a child born if his parents say the prayer. Already know what the prayer is? This;

اللَّهُمَّ جَنِّبْنَا مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ وَجَنِّبِ الشَّيْطَانَ مَا رَزَقْتَنَا

O Allah, keep us from Satan and keep Satan from what you have given to us.

The above hadith is in accordance with Qur’anic verse which tells of Mary’s mother;

فَلَمَّا وَضَعَتۡهَا قَالَتۡ رَبِّ إِنِّي وَضَعۡتُهَآ أُنثَىٰ وَٱللَّهُ أَعۡلَمُ بِمَا وَضَعَتۡ وَلَيۡسَ ٱلذَّكَرُ كَٱلۡأُنثَىٰۖ وَإِنِّي سَمَّيۡتُهَا مَرۡيَمَ وَإِنِّيٓ أُعِيذُهَا بِكَ وَذُرِّيَّتَهَا مِنَ ٱلشَّيۡطَٰنِ ٱلرَّجِيمِ ٣٦

So, when she brought forth, she said: My Lord! Surely, I have brought it forth a female– and Allah knew best what she brought forth– and the male is not like the female, and I have named it Marium, and I commend her and her offspring into Thy protection from the accursed Shaitan. (Ali ‘Imran [3]; 36).
