    Dua for infertile couples

    Salaam not long ago someone opened a thread about infertility. Anyway I have come across a dua that may be of help:
    “Rabbi laa tadharni fardan wa anta khayr ul-waaritheen (O my Lord! Leave me not single (childless), though You are the Best of the inheritors).” This is a beautiful dua
    Also suitable is another prayer : “Rabbi hab li min ladunka dhurriyyatan tayyibatan innaka samee’ al-du’aa’ (O my Lord! Grant me from You a good offspring. You are indeed the All-Hearer of invocation).

    ALAH (SWT) Says that He leaves (who He Wants) barren (and gives others' children).

    people shouldn't fret over this.

      Allah also tells us to make dua, He swt loves people to ask Him. Dua is the only thing which can change the qadr. Many of the prophets made dua for offspring, like Zakariyya alayhi salam. There is nothing wrong in making dua for this. It's natural that people want children because they are a great blessing, so they should continue making dua. There will be even hasanat for them in making the dua because it is an ibadah, so no need to discourage

              that's interesting; btw, would many people agree with that Hadith? eg, is it a weak Hadith, chain of narrators etc..?

                “No Precaution can protect against the decree of Allah, dua is beneficial with regard to what has been decreed and what has not been decreed. The dua meets calamity that has been decreed and wrestles with it, until the day of resurrection.

                (Narrated by at tabaraani, 2/800 (33) hasan).

                    Wa alaikum salaam

                    The above duas were the duas of Nabi Zakariyya (as):


                    وَزَكَرِيَّا إِذْ نَادَى رَبَّهُ رَبِّ لا تَذَرْنِي فَرْدًا وَأَنْتَ خَيْرُ الْوَارِثِينَ

                    (Anbiya': 59)



                    هُنَالِكَ دَعَا زَكَرِيَّا رَبَّهُ قَالَ رَبِّ هَبْ لِي مِنْ لَدُنْكَ ذُرِّيَّةً طَيِّبَةً إِنَّكَ سَمِيعُ الدُّعَاءِ


                    (Aal 'Imran: 38)

                    And we know that his having a child was a miracle, since he was very old when it happened and his wife was barren.
                    "And thus have We willed you to be a community of the middle way."
                    (al-Baqarah: 143)

                    Allahumma innaa na'udhu bika min an nushrika bika shai-an na'lamuh; wa nastaghfiruka limaa laa na'lam.

                      Re: Dua for infertile couples

                      ok here u go

                      the prophet :saw: stated
                      'nothing repels predestinatation (qadr) except dua

                      prophet :saw: said

                      caution wil not b of any benefit against predestination, but dua benefits (matters) that hav occured and are yet to occur, and indeed dua meets with a calamnity & fights it til day of judgement

                      prophet :saw: said

                      whoever the door of dua has been opened for then all the doors of mercy hav been opened for him. and nothing is more pleasing to allah that He b asked of the things that r granted, than good health. dua is of benefit to matters that hav occured and are yet to occur. so i advise u o servants of Allah make dua!

                      its from dua weapon of believer book pages 49 & 50, references are in the footnotes there

                        people shouldn't fret over this.
                        لِلَّهِ مُلْكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأرْضِ يَخْلُقُ مَا يَشَاءُ يَهَبُ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ إِنَاثًا وَيَهَبُ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ الذُّكُورَ


                        The kingdom of the heavens and earth belongs to Allah. He creates whatever He wills. He gives daughters whoever He wishes; and He gives sons to whoever He wishes;



                        أَوْ يُزَوِّجُهُمْ ذُكْرَانًا وَإِنَاثًا وَيَجْعَلُ مَنْ يَشَاءُ عَقِيمًا إِنَّهُ عَلِيمٌ قَدِيرٌ


                        or He gives them both sons and daughters; and He makes whoever He wishes barren. Truly He is All-Knowing, All-Powerful.


                        (Shura: 49 - 50)


                        There's no contradiction between this and the other ayat. It doesn't necessarily mean that we shouldn't make dua for children. If that were so, why would those other duas have been mentioned in the Quran?
                        "And thus have We willed you to be a community of the middle way."
                        (al-Baqarah: 143)

                        Allahumma innaa na'udhu bika min an nushrika bika shai-an na'lamuh; wa nastaghfiruka limaa laa na'lam.

                            Those 2 du'as are extremely powerful even for healthy people wanting kids. subhanALLAH.

                              Du’aa’s for infertile couples

                              Praise be to Allaah.

                              You may pray the du’aa’ of Zakariya (peace be upon him), who said:

                              “Rabbi laa tadharni fardan wa anta khayr ul-waaritheen (O my Lord! Leave me not single (childless), though You are the Best of the inheritors).” This is a beautiful du’aa’ which is very appropriate in this case. Also suitable is another prayer of Zakariya: “Rabbi hab li min ladunka dhurriyyatan tayyibatan innaka samee’ al-du’aa’ (O my Lord! Grant me from You a good offspring. You are indeed the All-Hearer of invocation).”

                              The story of Zakariya contains valuable lessons for us. Allaah has told us this story in several places in the Qur’aan. For example, in Soorat Aal ‘Imraan, where He tells us about Maryam (peace be upon her) He says (interpretation of the meaning):

                              “So her Lord (Allaah) accepted her [Maryam] with goodly acceptance. He made her grow in a good manner and put her under the care of Zakariya. Every time he entered al-mihrab [a praying place or private room] to (visit) her, he found her supplied with sustenance. He said, ‘O Maryam! From where have you got this?’ She said, ‘This is from Allaah.’ Verily, Allaah provides sustenance to whom He wills, without limit.

                              At that time Zakariya invoked his Lord, saying: ‘O my Lord! Grant me from You a good offspring. You are indeed the All-Hearer of invocation.’

                              Then the angels called him, while he was standing in prayer in al-mihrab, (saying): ‘Allaah gives you glad tidings of Yahya, confirming (believing in) the Word from Allaah [i.e., the creation of ‘Eesaa], noble, keeping away from sexual relations with women, a Prophet, from among the righteous.’

                              He said, ‘O my Lord! How can I have a son when I am very old and my wife is barren?’ Allaah said: ‘Thus Allaah does what He wills.’

                              He said: ‘O my Lord! Make a sign for me.’ Allaah said: ‘Your sign is that you shall not speak to mankind for three days except with signals. And remember your Lord much, and glorify (Him) in the afternoon and in the morning.’”[Aal ‘Imraan 3:37-41]

                              In Soorat Maryam, Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

                              “(This is) a mention of the mercy of your Lord to His slave Zakariya.

                              When he called out to his Lord (Allaah) – a call in secret,
                              Saying, ‘My Lord! Indeed my bones have grown feeble, and grey hair has spread on my head, and I have never been unblest in my invocation to You, O my Lord!

                              And verily! I fear my relatives after me, since my wife is barren. So give me from Yourself an heir, -

                              Who shall inherit me, and inherit (also) the posterity of Ya’qoob [inheritance of religious knowledge and Prophethood]. And make him, my Lord, one with whom You are well-pleased!’

                              (Allaah said): ‘O Zakariya! Verily, We give you the glad tidings of a son. His name will be Yahya. We have given that name to none before (him).’

                              He said, ‘My Lord! How can I have a son, when my wife is barren, and I have reached the extreme old age?’

                              He said, ‘So (it will be). Your Lord says: It is easy for Me, Certainly, I have created you before, when you had been nothing!’

                              [Zakariya] said: ‘My Lord! Appoint for me a sign.’ He said, ‘Your sign is that you shall not speak unto mankind for three nights, though having no bodily defect.’

                              Then he came out to his people from al-mihrab [a praying-place or private room] and told them by signs to glorify Allaah’s Praises in the morning and in the afternoon.”[Maryam 19:2-11]

                              In Soorat al-Anbiya’, Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

                              “And (remember) Zakariya, when he cried to his Lord: ‘O my Lord! Leave me not single (childless), though You are the Best of the inheritors.’

                              So We answered his call, and We bestowed upon him Yahya, and cured his wife (to bear a child) for him. Verily, they used to hasten on to do good deeds, and they used to call on Us with hope and fear, and used to humble themselves before Us.”[al-Anbiya’ 21:89-90]

                              Thinking about the story of Zakariya (peace be upon him) is very beneficial for anyone who is infertile. One may also ponder the story of Ibraaheem and his wife Saarah, whom Allaah rewarded for their patience with Ishaaq when Ibraaheem was very old. He was also given another son, Ismaa’eel. Allaah tells us that His khaleel (friend) said (interpretation of the meaning):

                              “All praises and thanks be to Allaah, Who has given me in old age Ismaa’eel and Ishaaq. Verily! My Lord is indeed the All-Hearer of invocations.”[Ibraaheem 14:39]

                              In all situations, the Muslim should accept and be content with the decree of Allaah, even if he is to remain infertile for the rest of his life. It could be that his patience may be better for him than a child. Everything that Allaah decrees has wisdom and a reason behind it, and everything is subject to His Will and Command. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

                              “To Allaah belongs the kingdom of the heaven and the earth. He creates what He wills. He bestows female (offspring) upon whom He wills, and bestows male (offspring) upon whom He wills.

                              Or He bestows both males and females, and He renders barren whom He wills. Verily, He is the All-Knower and is Able to do all things.”
                              [al-Shoora 42:49-50]

                              May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad.
