Dua in Pregnancy,Dua for Delivery and fast labor


Dua for Delivery and fast Labor

“If You want to have a fast Labor, don’t get scared. Have faith in Allah and Read these Duas.” 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. Allah will make it easy for You. In sha Allah.

Food Recommended to eat  in Pregnancy (From Hadeeths ).

Dua in Complicated Pregnancy  or Threatened Miscarriage

When there is any complication in pregnancy or when you are informed that there is a threatened miscarriage, you get scared to death. In Such times, Seek help of Allah. It is Allah who is our Khaaliq (Creator), He is Maalik (Owner) and He is Mudabbir (Planner). You can seek help through Asma ul Husna. Some Alim say, reading Al Mubdiyo(the Originator) and Al Khaliqo (the Creator)  helps greatly. Place your hand in your stomach and read these Allah’s name as many times Possible

Dua For Delivery

Dua for Delivery 01

First five Verses from Surah Al Inshiqaq chapter 84  (1-5) is recommended to be read during the time of delivery.

image 3

It is also recommended to Read Surah Maryam and Surah Yaseen and Ayatul Kursi. 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 .

Dua for Delevery 03

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.

dua in pregnancy

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): “Allah 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.”

35 11

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)

  18. reginalifetips

    Assalamo alaikom, Sis Aafia. Jazzak Allaho khairan for your very nice article. I am currently 30 weeks pregnant with my baby still in breech position. I am so nervous and worried because my 6yra old daughter was born through cesarean due to breech presentation as well. Thougj my OB told me that it’s still early and my son can still turn his head down that a chance of vaginal birth is highly probable, I am still not at ease. And so I searched for Islamic duas and I found your site, alhamdulillah I am so relieved now. I will do a lot of istighfar, full tawwakul to Allah, and sincere duas that all will be according to his will and that it’s for the best. I am wallahi crying now, I feel very emotional now, subhanAllah, what a great jihad really for all those expecting moms. Let’s manage our being tense and scared by having full trust to Allah, s.w.t May we all have a safe dleivery and healthy babies in shaa Allah

      May Allah help you and keep your baby safe .I will keep you in my prayers and I request the readers of this post to pray for the safety of your baby .Motherhood is a tough time and when complication occurs ,every second becomes an year .I understand your pain and will pray for your sis .Do let us know if things become fine.

      Tahajjud is a very beautiful time to connect to Allah swt .Allah says in Quran :“And indeed We have created man, and We know whatever thoughts his inner self develops, and We are closer to him than (his) jugular vein.” (Quran 50:16).

      Pray for your child .Use the time of tahajjud or before Iftar . Allah swt will recompense you to the full either my answering your dua or by rewarding you for your patience in the hereafter . In sha Allah .Ameen.

    then give me a any dua for healthy pregnancy and safe baby insha allah.. Please dua for me sis

    1. Aafia

      Walekum Assalam Sis Aslee . It is not a problem that you read it alone . I would suggest that you also recite Surah Maryam . Surah Maryam is magical and I have felt it personally .Morever the Scholars say that it is the intention of making dua that matters .You need to believe that it is only Allah who will cure . No matter what dua you read the words need to come out of a sincere heart seeking help only from Allah

  25. Rida ali

    1. Aafia

      Dear sister,
      It is Allah who is the controller of all affairs. He rewards our dua with either fulfilling it here or giving its ajar in akhirah.
      You can read the above duas especially the following dua from the Quraan for pious male offspring.
      رَبِّ هَبْ لِي مِنْ لَدُنْكَ ذُرِّيَّةً طَيِّبَةً إِنَّكَ سَمِيعُ الدُّعَاءِ
      Transliteration: Rabbi Habli Minladunka Thuriyatan Tayiba Inaka Samiu Dua
      Translation: My Rabb grant me pure children from yourself. Without doubt you hear all prayers (Surah Al Imraan-

      Reference for above dua

    1. 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.

    Dear sister
    I am seventh month in my pregnency. On my fifth month scan, doctor informed that my baby has pelvis delation problem . It willnot clear within the delivery.. And consult a doctor aftr the baby born. Plz advicr me dua for clear everything within the delivery.and easy child birth..plz

    1. Aafia

      @Mosi , Seek help from Allah swt . Pray tahajjud , and besides reading the above duas , you can read this dua :
      “O Allah, I hope for Your mercy. Do not leave me to myself even for the blinking of an eye (i.e. a moment). Correct all of my affairs for me. There is none worthy of worship but You.” (Abu Dawud 4/324, Ahmad 5/42. Al-Albani graded it as good in Sahih Abu Dawud 3/959.)” (arabic here).

      It is not the Dua that works wonders.It is the sincerity of the heart and your connection with Allah swt through the duas that changes destiny . May Allah give you a healthy baby and improve your health. Ameen.

  38. Aslee

    As-salaamu alaikum sister… I was now 9 weeks.. I want safe dua for my baby nd me

    1. Aafia

      Walekum Assalam sis,

      Believe in the qadr of Allah.I hope and pray that you don’t have any complications. I have compiled the above list of dua after extensive research and consultations. You can read them and keep taqwa .

      Personally ,I would advice you that if you get concerned or worried during pregnancy ,put your hands on your stomach and read Allah’s name “Al Mubdiyo ” . You can also ask your husband to read Al Mubdiyo 99 times while both of you keep your hands on your belly .

      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.
