Q: What is the Sunnah method of congratulating the bride and bridegroom on the occasion of nikah?

A: Whenever Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) congratulated a Sahaabi on the occasion of nikah, he congratulated him with the following dua:

بَارَك اللهُ لَك وبَارَك عَلَيْكَ وَجَمَعَ بَيْنَكُمَا فِيْ الْخَيْر

"May Allah Ta'ala bless you and grant you abundant barkat in your nikaah and may this union be a means of all good"

And Allah Ta'ala knows best.

 عن أبي هريرة : أن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم كان إذا رفأ الإنسان إذا تزوج قال بارك الله لك وبارك عليك وجمع بينكما في الخير (جامع الترمذي رقم 1091)
