Muslim Pregnancy Prayers
Prayer for the Infertile Couple
Infertility can be the most frustrating thing for a couple. Islam offers numerous prayers and passages from the Qur’an to help overcome this problem. The following du’a (prayers) was made by the Prophet Zakariah in his old age for his barren wife. According to the Qur’an, Allah answered his call and gave him a son, Yahyah (John the Baptist). Infertile Muslim couples are often advised to recite this passage to help them conceive a child.
"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."
From The Noble Quran, Al-‘Imran, 3:38
