Fatwa ID: 03227
Answered by: Maulana Muhammad Imad Ali
I got married in March 2017 and from March 2017 I am trying to conceive a baby but always the results are negative. So can you please help me with some duas.
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
It is stated in the Holy Qur’aan that:
‘To God belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. He creates whatever He wills; He gives to whomever He wills, (in the way of children) females, and He gives to whomever He wills males. Or He combines them, that is to say, (or) He makes them, males and females; and He makes whomever He wills infertile, such that she is unable to conceive or cannot have a child. Surely He is Knower of what He creates, Powerful in (bringing about) whatever He wills.’ (Surah As-Shuraa, ayah 49 – 50)
Some of the ‘Ulamaa have recommended reciting this dua in abundance and to make lots of istighfaar:
رَبِّ لاَ تَذَرْنِي فَرْداً وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ ٱلْوَارِثِينَ
‘My Lord, do not leave me without an heir and you are the best of inheritors.’ (Surah Al-Anbiyaa, part of verse 89)
There’s also a recommendation to recite Surah Maryam to fall pregnant. Taken from the fatwa of Mufti Ebrahim Desai and Mufti Muhammad Kadwa of askimam.org.
However, please bear in mind that it is up to Allah (SWT) to bestow one with children. Not having children does not necessarily mean that Allah does not love you or your husband, rather Allah (SWT) knows best when is the appropriate time for you to have children or to not have them at all. Have faith in Allah’s divine decree.
Only Allah knows best.
