Asalaam Alaikum All,
I need some advice and have joined this forum in the hope that I will get some answers In'Sha'Allah.
My wife is pregnant but we are unsure if it is permissible to be asking Allah to bless us with a baby boy? If it is OK for us to pray for a boy can anyone please provide a dua and proof from the relevant hadith or versus from the Quran that shows that this is ok for us to do?
We went to an Imam and he asked us to read the following but I didn't ask what it meant (I thought it would be disrespectful). The Imam asked for my wife to read the following:
"Allah Humma Man Kana Fi Hazal Badni Fa Ee Mu Hu Mohammed"
What does the above mean?
