Dua in Pregnancy,Dua for Delivery

Pregnancy is a time of transition and transformation, marked by moments of joy, apprehension, and vulnerability. In moments of fear, doubt, or anxiety, dua serves as a source of comfort and solace. Whether it’s reciting the names of Allah, seeking forgiveness for past transgressions, or simply pouring out one’s heart in supplication, expectant mothers find refuge in the act of prayer. The spiritual connection developed through dua provides a sense of reassurance and peace amidst the uncertainties of pregnancy.

Dua in pregnancy is not only about seeking blessings and protection but also about nurturing a spiritual connection with the unborn child. Many mothers recite verses from the Quran or engage in heartfelt supplications, placing their hands on their bellies as a symbolic gesture of love and affection towards their child. This intimate act of communication fosters a profound bond between mother, child, and the Divine, imbuing the pregnancy journey with spiritual significance and depth.

Express gratitude to Allah for the miraculous gift of childbirth and the opportunity to bring a new life into the world. Make the intention to be thankful for the strength and resilience bestowed upon you during labor and delivery. By cultivating an attitude of gratitude, you invite blessings and abundance into the birthing experience, recognizing each contraction as a sign of Allah’s mercy and grace.

Childbirth can be a challenging and physically demanding process that requires immense patience and perseverance. Make the intention to remain patient and steadfast in the face of discomfort or pain, trusting in Allah’s timing and wisdom. Embrace each contraction as a means of drawing closer to Him and recognize that every moment of difficulty is an opportunity for spiritual growth and endurance.

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 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)

Dua for protection of unborn child

“My Lord! Indeed, I [I] vowed to You what (is) in my womb, dedicated, so accept from me. Indeed, You, You (are) the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing. I [I] seek refuge for her in You and her offspring from the Shaitaan the rejected. My Lord grants [for] me from Yourself offspring pure. Indeed, You (are) All-Hearer (of) the prayer.” (Al-Imran 3:35-38)
