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 Childbirth as a normal Process of Reproduction. Every Female reproduce and Allah will make it easy for You too, In sha Allah.

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.
It is also recommended to Read Surah Maryam and Surah Yaseen and Ayatul Kursi. She advised 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?
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.”
Translation: 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)
