This post is written for Muslim women seeking duas for infertility – feel free to skip if it’s not your cup of tea or irrelevant to your journey.
‘The Pregnancy Guide for Muslim Women’ by Ummu Muawiya was sent to me by someone who meant well but she sent it at the worst time for me (just after she had a child). However sweet her intention, it still felt like salt in a wound. For this reason for a long time I couldn’t face opening this book. However, after a year I opened it and discovered that there are two prayers for Muslim women trying to conceive. If this can help one of you out there, then it is worth it sharing.
The first prayer is using saffron and a taweez – I don’t know if using a taweez is halal, so I’ve decided to exclude it. The next prayer is..
“The Shaper & The Inventor”
The book recommends fasting for seven days and reciting the above names of Allah 21 times when you break your fast. (pg 164)
The author also recommends writing Ul-Musowiru on a piece of paper and keeping it with you (personally.. sounds similar to the taweez approach and again I’m not sure how halal that is).
Conceiving a child
O my Lord! Leave me not single (childless), though You are the Best of the inheritors.”
Rabbi-laa-tehzhirni far-dow weh-anteh khairul-waaritheen
This is my favourite and the one most recommended across the net (from what I can see when Googling). Read after making salah. It’s from the Quran (Surah 21 (Al Ambiya) : Verses:89-90)
I also want to share this brilliant blog and read by Maryam Lane – please take time to read it:
The definition of a Mother: dealing with Infertility, the Islamic perspective
I pray that InshaAllah this helps you.
