Dua for Delivery and fast Labor

“If You want to have a fast Labor,Do not get Scared .Have faith in Allah and Read these Duas .” This was the golden words of my Ustadah that rung in my ears ,when I was on my delivery Bed . Yes,You will be shocked to  Know that Research on labor says that  labor takes 47 minutes longer for women who fear childbirth. And longer labor is undesirable because, aside from increasing women’s discomfort, it also increases the need for interventions such as the use of forceps or cesarean delivery. So ,the first advice I would give to My Sisters is to take Child birth as a normal Process of Reproduction.Every Female reproduce  and Allah will make it easy for You too,In sha Allah.

I am Writing this article to share Some Very Powerful dua for Delivery that was taught to me by my Ustadah and It helped  a lot in my Pregnancy .Alhumdulillah Allah gave me Strength and helped me overcome the fear of Child birth and I was able to deliver with ease .

Dua For Delivery

The Dua which I was taught for easy Delivery was the first five Verses from Surah Al Inshiqaqchapter 84  (1-5) .It is recommended to be read during the time of delivery.

dua for Delivery

It is also recommended to Read Surah Maryam and Surah Yaseen and Ayatul Kursi . She adviced me that the Islamic education of the child starts when the child is still in the womb of the mother. This is through the thoughts that she carries in those days, by the feelings that she has, by the kind of books that she reads, by the kind of company that she keeps and by the kind of things that she hears.So ,We should Read to our unborn Child .

Other Short Supplications We can Read for easy delivery are-

Hasbunallaahu wa ni’imal wakeel
Allah suffices us and He is the best guardian

Inniy u’eedhuhaa bika wa dhurriyyatahaa minas shaytaanir rajeem
And I command her and her offspring to Thy protection, from the evil one, the rejected.

NB: Please Note that these are only  the Recommended “Dua for delivery ” suggested by the Scholars  and there are no dua for delivery recorded in Saheeh Hadith

It must be noted that there are NO Duas in the saheeh Sunnah that are specifically for the pregnant woman or the baby. Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) was asked: Are there any verses that may be recited for the purpose of making childbirth easier for the woman?

He replied:

I do not know of anything of that nature in the Sunnah, but if you recite over the pregnant woman who is in labour that which speaks of things being made easier, such as the verse (interpretation of the meaning): “Allaah intends for you ease, and He does not want to make things difficult for you”[al-Baqarah 2:185]; and that which speaks of childbirth and delivery, such as the verse (interpretation of the meaning): “And no female conceives or gives birth, but with His Knowledge” [Faatir 35:11] – this will be beneficial; it has been tried and tested, by Allah’s leave. The entire Qur’an is healing; if the reciter and the one to whom it is recited believe in its impact then it must inevitably have an effect, because Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning): “And We send down from the Qur’an that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe (in Islamic Monotheism and act on it), and it increases the Zalimoon (polytheists and wrong-doers) nothing but loss” [al-Isra’ 17:82]. This verse is general in meaning; healing and mercy includes healing of hearts from the diseases of doubt and desire, as well as the healing of bodies from physical disease. End quote.

Ref-“Fataawa Noor ‘ala ad-Darb, tape no. 257, side A.”

Tanslation: And Allah created you from dust, then from a sperm-drop; then He made you mates. And no female conceives nor does she give birth except with His knowledge. And no aged person is granted [additional] life nor is his lifespan lessened but that it is in a register. Indeed, that for Allah is easy.(35:11)

    Seek help from Allah swt because none can help except Allah. It is Allah who is our creator,sustainer and Planner.Everything belongs to Allah and everything will return to Allah.We just have to keep faith and make lots of dua.

    And dear sis,remember me too in your prayers.

  10. Walekum Assalam dear Sis Mosi,

    Please Do not Panic .Allah always has better plans for us .Have tawakkal in Allah swt that whatever he does,he does it for good. If You are scared about the delivery ,read abundant of Surah Maryam. Believe me they are magical and read the first five Verses from Surah Al Inshiqaqchapter 84 (1-5) as mentioned in the post.

    Pack your hospital bags well in advance because many a time we get nervous thinking how will we be able to take care of the baby once it arrives.In sha Allah you will recover very very fast .If You panic, just try to visualise the happiness you will get when you will have the baby in your hand.Thank Allah and do lots of Astaghfar.

    I pary to Allah that you have a safe and easy delivery. And do let me know after you have a baby .You will be always in my duas Sis.Lots of love .Take care. Jazakumullah Khairan.

  11. It will helps me a lot of and some things make clear to me.This is an excellent article. Very nice to read. informative article, well researched and clearly presented. Please keep posting in regular basis. I will be waiting for your next post.

  12. Assalamu alaikum sis
    I’m near due date its have one week only now Dr told me my baby head size smal but she told nothing to worried but I’m feeling so bad it’s my first baby pls pray for me and my baby for safe delivery

  13. AsalamuAlaikum sisters.Am 37 weeks pregnant.Today doctor told since fluid is more in me baby keeps on changing from normal position(now head upside),also gap in pelvis is less since am short,therefore there is majority chance of being ceserean,will wait until Monday and proceed for ceserean (today s thursday)I used to recite surah inshiqaq and yaseen right from the beggining. Have no idea how to overcome all these and have a normal easy delivery.

  14. Dear Sis Naseen,
    Do not Despair of the Mercy of Allah swt he has the best plans for us.
    Do You Know that sometimes Normal delivery can be more painful and take longer time to heal specially when you get some complications due to epistomy or for other reasons.Normal delivery according to me is a misnomer ,Vaginal delivery is the word more suiting to it . Vaginal or Caesarean ,what we should pray is that we recover fast and our child be in the best of his/her health.

    Do not get upset ,because the Dr told you that there is more possibility of a C section. Dear Sis,You get the reward of whatever good you do in this world or in the next.Allah does not let the wage of the good-doers go to waste.{Quran (Surah Yousuf, Verse 90)}And sometimes Allah tests us .May Allah give you Patience so that you bear the trials of life . Dear sis,Have tawakkul in Allah swt and whenever you get upset remind yourself that Allah’s plans are the best of us.You are in 37th month Masha Allah!There is a hadeeth of Prophet SAW

    Narrated from Imām as-Sādiq (as):

    “Every time a woman becomes pregnant, during the whole period of pregnancy she has the status of one who fasts, one who worships during the night, and one who fights for Allah with her life and possessions. And when she is giving birth, Allah grants her so much reward that nobody knows its limit because of its greatness. And when she is giving milk to her child, for every suck of the child, Allah gives her the reward of freeing a slave from the children of Ismā’īl, and when the period of breastfeeding the child is finished, one of the great angels of Allah taps her side and says: “Start your deeds afresh, for Allah has forgiven all your minor sins.” [al-Kāfī, vol. 5, pg. 496]

    Dear Sis,Duas in the state of Pregnancy are accepted . Think Positive .Make lots of Dua for your family and for the Ummah and please remember me too in your Prayers.

    May Allah grant you whatever is best for You.Ameen. Take Care.
