Muslim Pregnancy Prayers
Prayer for Wanting a Child
The urge to have a child can be very deep for couples. Muslims are advised, when they wish to have a child, to just pray to Allah. There are certain recommended prayers as well. Reading the following passage from the Qur’an is advised to help a couple conceive a child.
“It is He Who has created you from a single person (Adam), and (then) He has created from him his wife [Hawwa (Eve)], in order that he might enjoy the pleasure of living with her. When he had sexual relation with her, she became pregnant and she carried it about lightly. Then when it became heavy, they both invoked Allah, their Lord (saying): ‘If You give us a Salih (good in every aspect) child, we shall indeed be among the grateful.’"
From The Noble Qur’an, Al-A’raf, 7:189
