Dua for Unborn Baby?

This is the typical development of a 30-week old fetus. The fetus is usually capable of living outside the womb and would be considered premature at birth. Nourishment is transferred from the mother's blood, through the placenta, and into the umbilical cord to the fetus. If the mother ingests any toxic substances, the baby receives these as well.

I am 30 weeks pregnant and am worried for the baby's health due to test results.

Please could you let me know what dua i could read to help keep my mind at peace and have a healthy baby?

I pray to Allah for the best.

  1. Can someone translate these please?

    I see the first reference is Quran, Surat Al-Baqarah (2: 155-157)

    And the second is Surat Ghafir, ayah 44

    • As requested...

      Surat Al-Baqarah (2: 155-157)

      Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere, Who say, when afflicted with calamity: "To Allah We belong, and to Him is our return": They are those on whom (Descend) blessings from Allah, and Mercy, and they are the ones that receive guidance.

      Surat Ghafir, ayah 44

      "And you will remember what I am telling you, and my affair I leave it to Allah. Verily, Allah is the All-Seer of (His) slaves."

      • I am now 8 weeks pregnant but no heartbeat detected and the gestational sac wasn't form perfectly.. I'm so worried and helpless with the result yesterday.. What does it imply in islamic view? Is there a possibility that after a week the heartbeat will be detected? Thank you

        • Nabela, a doctor would know best about this. May Allah help you and make it easy for you.

        • Assalamu alaikum sister,

          It is very likely that sometimes a heartbeat can not be detected...usually (if I'm not wrong) women have their first scan at 12 weeks unless someone has a medical history..if the doctor hasn't said anything I wouldn't worry sis...have faith in Allah...I am in my 12week now...everything was going fine until few days ago when I ended up in hospital...I am currently on antibiotics and steroids and also had xrays which could affect the baby.However, Alhamdullillah I strongly believe Allah is the best of planner and Allah will protect my baby. I do understand the stress you are going through as I was once in ur situation but trust me sis if you leave everything on the Almighty you will just fine Ameen...may Allah give you a healthy, beautiful and a pious child Ameen...take care

        • My problem is same....m too much worried...plz pray for me also

      • Salam, may be I'm overlooking or something but what Surah exactly is Surah Ghafir. I didn't find any Surah with this name in the Quran. Also in what sipara I should look this into? Jazakallah o khairan.

        • Surat Ghafir is Surah # 40. It is also called Al-Mu'min. It takes the name Ghafir from the first word of the third ayah.

  2. Dear Sisters,
    I am almost 8 months pregnant. I am very worried about my child, i want my child to be born very healthy physically and mentally. I also have a lot of worries in life, other than pregnancy--which is affecting my pregnancy--> i am very scared becoz of this.

    Please suggest me some duas as soon as possible.

    May Allah bless you....

  3. 1) Du'a of Zakariyya (Zakariah) (as), which he made in his old age while his wife was barren. Allah(swt) answered his call and gave him Yahyah (John)(as), in Al Qur'an, Surah Al-'Imran 3:38:
    "O my Lord! Grant me from You, a good offspring. You are indeed the All-Hearer of invocation."

    2)Du’a of Ibrahim (as). Allah accepted his dua and granted Prophet Ibraheem two sons: Ismael and Ishaq (as), in Al Quran Surah Saaffaat:
    "My Lord, grant me from the righteous ones."

    3) Du’a of Zakariyya(as). in Al Quran Suratul Anbiyaa: 89:
    "Oh Allah, please don't leave me alone (childless), for you are the best of those who give inheritors."

    4) Du’a in Al Qur'an 25:74:

    "Our Lord! give us spouse and children who will be the joy( and the comfort ) of our eyes, and guide us to be models of righteous (Leader of God-concious people). "

    5) Du’a in Al Quran - 46:15 Surah Al-Ahqaf:
    "...Oh Rabb, inspire me to give You thanks for the bounties you have granted to me and my parents, and to act righteously to please You. Lord, make my offspring virtuous. Lord I turn to you in repentance; I am a Muslim".

  4. I have been diagnosed with endometriosis 3 years ago have been trying to fall pregnant for the past 5 years. Alhamdulillah i have fallen pregnant this month im so happy but scared at the same time. Is ther any dua i can read so Allah may bless us with a perfectly healthy and normal baby and i have no complications during this pregnancy and im able to carry the baby full term insha-Allah

    • Sister recite this dua everyday atleast once or twice a day Inshallah Allah will fulfill your desire.

      "Rabbay hub li mil ladunka zurriyatan tayyaba, innaka sami ud dua, rubbay la tazar nif ardun wa unta khair ul war seen"

      • Is this dua from quran? if so you can you please let me know the surah and ayah number. Also can you please tell the meaning of it.
        JazakAllah Khair

  5. Salaam Sister

    Do this it will work inshallah. Have a strong faith in Allah and follow this. I found it on the net, I google allah's names and benefit.

    If a barren woman fasts for 7 days and each day, after making iftaar with water, read (Yaa-Baari-Ul Musawwiru) 21 times, Allah will grant her male children . Insha-Allah

    • These sisters want healthy children, they are not concerned with whether the babies are male or female. Perhaps you had no ill intention but it seems that women ALWAYS favor sons for some reason.

      • ya we prefer baby boy because we know how hard our life is and what we all go thru in our life.

        • How is it related to how hard our life is? I am a woman and I love whether my baby is a boy or a girl, whatever Allah decides to give. It's a huge huge blessing from Allah SWT.

          I already have a a boy and now I am expecting again. Not sure whether this baby will be a boy or a girl, I will take whatever Allah SWT gives happily. But I would be happier if it would be a girl, because I have 1 boy already, I haven't got any girl. I would love to experience having a daughter too.
          Daughters are mother's best friends and they are their confidente' and someone to always talk to and accompany.

    • Assalamualaikum, mashaAllah fasting is always virtuous but i'm afraid that what you have mentioned above sister actually has no basis in the quraan or sunnah, ie the prophet sws did not teach us to do this, or gave us any such instruction and it must have been invented by someone somewhere.

      Stick to the pure way, make lots of dua as Allah says “And when My slaves ask you (O Muhammad) concerning Me, then (answer them), I am indeed near (to them by My Knowledge). I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor)."

      What you will have has already been written down for you and it Allah knows that it will be better for you, or a test to strengthen you.

      Wassalam

      • Asma,

        Thank you for your comment. You are completely right. So many people find any practise and without thinking associate it with Islam when in fact it has no connection with the Quran or Sunnah.

        I do wish people would think before believing everything they read blindly.

    • Male children? Does it matter whether the child is male or female? Read the Quran and practice what you know from the Sunnah, if you give advice on a certain practice, confirm it with a Learned person and get your proof from the Quran and Sunnah!! "male children" HA!

    • Male children??? Why? Coz female children are not human? Is it something bad luck or terrible to receive female children??

      wow, sister Rayhana! Because of ladies like you, many females in the east are getting abused by their own family members and husbands. And many female babies are getting buried or killed by their own mothers or fathers just because she was born. You are a female and you are thinking like that. I can't believe it.

      Please sister, whatever Allah gives, both boys and girls are greatest blessings from Allah SWT. All we need is healthy baby. Not gender discrimination.

      please refer to this article in the link.
      http://islam.ru/en/content/story/girl-child-life-prophet-muhammad

      Prophet Muhammad ﷺsaid: ‘He, who brought up two girls properly till they grew up, he and I would come (together) (very closely) on the Day of Resurrection, and he interlaced his fingers (for explaining the point of nearness between him and that person)’.

      "Daughters are a great blessing because Allah(SWT) has promised a place in paradise (Jannah) on bringing them up. The one who has 3 daughters or sisters, or 2 daughters or sisters and he brings them up properly and fears Allah(SWT) regarding their rights, then Paradise is made mandatory for him. In some Hadith, when the Prophet(SAW) mentioned the blessings of bringing up 3 daughters or sisters, somebody asked “What if someone has only 1 daughter?” The Prophet(SAW) mentioned the same prize for him as well,i-e a place in the paradise. Paradise would never be made mandatory for such people had daughters not been blessings of Allah(SWT).

      This shows that daughters are indeed a source of blessing from Allah(SWT), therefore if a daughter is born in someone’s house, he should not be saddened by this, instead he should rejoice and thank Allah(SWT) for this blessing. How can they be inferior when a place in paradise is being promise against them? Getting saddened by the birth of daughters was the practice of the Non-Believers(Kuffar) because before the Prophet(SAW) came, the Kuffar used to get saddened by the birth of daughters and used to consider them a burden as they would need to find someone for their daughters to marry. They were such animals that they used to bury their innocent daughters alive.
      It is these blessed daughters that are the means for the existence of humanity, how can they be considered a curse, this is the act of the Non Believers. The Prophet(SAW) has called her a blessed woman who’s first child is a daughter. Therefore rejoice and smile when you hear about the birth of daughters and consider them a blessing for yourself.
      Islam has given a very high status to daughters, therefore consider them a huge blessing of Allah(SWT).

    • Dear sister why male children specifically.. May Allah grant sister with girl and boy child . Please don't be gender biased being a female and a Muslim.. Islam doesn't allow discrimination against gender.

  6. PLEASE MAKE DUA AND ADVISE ME 2 HAVE A BABY,AS MY MARRAIGE WAS LATE AGE AND NOW
    IAM 49 YRS.PLEASE ALL MAKE DUA FOR ME.

    • May Allah (SWT) grant you healthy beautiful kids inshaAllah

    • Dear Sister,

      If you are still menstruating, then you may still be able to conceive but you need to see a doctor as soon as possible for medical help aswell.

      If you have reached menopause, then sister you know your body has changed and you know that you cannot conceive anymore. If this is the case, have you considered adoption/fostering? There is so much reward in this sister.

      I pray that Allah blesses you with the beauty of Motherhood.

    • I know what it is like to desperately want a baby at a late age.

      Unfortunately, most fertility clinics will not assist a woman with her own eggs after age 42. After age 42 they use donor eggs. I'm not sure if you are open to this. Would a female relative be willing to donate her eggs?

      Even if you are still menstruating, the chances that you are ovulating are very, very slim. Have you tried purchasing an ovulation kit to determine if you are still ovulating?

      Keep up with your dua; miracles have been known to happen. You should just be realistic. Even if you get pregnant, a woman your age does not produce enough progesterone to build up the lining of the uterus, so you are very very prone to miscarriage because the fertized egg will not implant properly. I"m sorry to tell you all this.

      I'm not sure what country you live in. There are so many orphans in the world -have you considered adoption? Many countries do not permit adoption if the adoptive mother is older than 45, but, you never know.

      There is also a place in Karachi, Pakistan called the Cradle Foundation. Babies are left there, parentless, on a daily basis. I myself know of a girl who adopted from there. She moved to Pakistan for 10 months, and came home with a little girl. I know another lady who is 40 who adopted a 6 year old girl from an orphanage in India.

      So you never know where your opportunity to become a mother will stem from. I myself have tried fostering children through various charitable organizations; even if I do not become a mother, I will be making a difference in a child's life.

      I know how painful this must sound to you. The passage of time can be cruel for a woman.

    • Aoa Sister I was told to read ya Awal every Friday for 40 days. In shaa Allah
      Allah Tallah (swt) will bless you. I also listen to Surah Maryam daily. I like you married late I am 45 and have just been blessed Alhamdullilah. Please make dua for me.
      Allah Tallah (swt) knows best.
      You should go for a test and they will tell you if you are still ovulating and also your ovarian reserve (the number of eggs you have left) which is very low in the 40's age group.
      Please do not give up hope.
      Allah Tallah (swt) is merciful.

  7.

      IslamicAnswers.com Editor

      • Salaams,

        You know, after thinking about this one (don't ask me why I felt like I needed to figure this out lol), but I think maybe he meant "monoCHROMOSONIC" instead of "monochronic". I believe that would mean identical twins, who have the same chromosonal makeup.

        I could be wrong, but I was bored enough to theorize and just wanted to share lol.

    • Assalam O Alaikum sister,
      First and foremost congratulations on your pregnancy, may Allah make it easy for you. Here are few supplications/duas you can make during the pregnancy iA;

      ^^^^^^ Ibn Hiban reported in his sahih that Anas (R.A) reported that Holy Prophet (PBUH) said;

      "O Allah! There is no ease except in that which you have made easy and you make difficult, if you wish, easy". (Dua for ease of pain during the labor).

      ^^^^^^ "Our Lord bestow on us from our wives and our off springs who will be the comfort of our eyes, and make us leaders for the Muttaqun (pious)". (Al-Furqan 25:74)

      ^^^^^^ Abu Dawud in his sunan that Abu Bakar (R.A) narrated that Holy Prophet (PBUH) said; Supplication for one's distress is "O Allah! it is Your mercy that I hope for, so do not leave me in charge of my affairs even for a blink of an eye and rectify for me all of my affairs. None has the right to be worshiped except YOU".

      ^^^^^^ The Noble Quran Al-Imran (3:38)

      "O my Lord! Grant me from you, a good off spring. You are indeed All-Hearer of innovations".

      Apart from above one of the biggest problem among women unsuccessfully trying to conceive or among pregnant women is the stress. You need to make sure that you are not stressed and are eating the balanced diet.

  13. Salaam sisters,

    • Dear Sister, please appreciate what Allah SWT gives you. It is a huge blessing from Allah to have baby of any gender. Do not complain or be fussy about what Allah gives you as long as your baby is healthy.

      Why you don't want a baby girl? They are not human?

    • The Quran says about this topic Sister
      “And when one of them is informed of [the birth of] a female, his face becomes dark, and he suppresses grief. He hides himself from the people because of the ill of which he has been informed. Should he keep it in humiliation or bury it in the ground? Unquestionably, evil is what they decide”. (Quran, 16:58-59).

      The Quran totally changed this attitude of parents towards their children and taught equal treatment towards them, irrespective of their sex or color. All are children and as such are entitled to the same treatment. In order to change this long established attitude of parents, the Prophet actually leaned more towards female children. His love and affection for his daughter Fatimah, may Allah have mercy upon her, was a bright example.

      There are many sayings of the Prophet ﷺwherein he has promised a great reward from Allah for bringing up female children nicely and with care. “If anyone has a female child and does not bury her alive, or slight her, or prefer his children (i.e., the male ones) to her, Allah will bring him to Paradise.” And, according to Aishah (May Allah have mercy on her) the Prophet ﷺsaid, “If anyone has suffered at all respecting these girls and treats them well, they will be a covering for him from Hell.”

    • Salam sister you know The Gates of Jannah will open for your Husband if you are Blessed with a Girl my daughter was my Blessing SubahanAllah I have also 7 sons b4 her MashAllah some women cannot even have a baby accept what Allah gives and be happy for a Healthy child MashAllah I'm expecting and I hope I have a healthy baby InshaAllah the sex if from Allah and I will be truly Greatful..
