Dua after nikaah

Q: I am in a confused situation. I am getting married this August Insha Allah. I am a Sunni and my would be is a mujahid. In my nikaah I want dua to be done after the nikaah ceremony and he is against it saying Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) never did it. Sheikh if you do dua is it a mistake? Will it be a mistake if older people in my family along with him do dua after the nikaah?

A: To make du`aa after the nikaah has been performed is not against the sunnat. At the end of every sitting it is recommended to end it with the remembrance of Allah.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
