May your vows and this marriage be blessed...
May this marriage offer fruit and shade like the date palm.
May this marriage be full of laughter,
your every day a day in paradise.
May this marriage be a sign of compassion,
a seal of happiness here and hereafter.
May this marriage be...an omen as welcome
as the moon in a clear evening sky...
May spirit enter and mingle in this marriage.
