Islamic Prayers During Pregnancy
Compiled by Dilshad Ali
Pregnancy for a Muslim woman is one of the holiest times of her life--a time when the Qur’an says that all angels will make repentance on her for behalf, when Allah will, for each day of her pregnancy, write for her 1,000 good deeds and erase from her 1,000 bad deeds. The virtues of pregnancy abound throughout Islamic scripture, with specific prayers designated from the time of conception through delivery as well as prayers to help a woman conceive and ones for having a healthy, beautiful, and God-fearing child.
Having successfully delivered three children through difficult pregnancies and having endured a few miscarriages, I often turned to Muslim prayers (or du’as) and read specific passages from the Qur’an to help ensure the best pregnancy and delivery possible. Click through the following collection of prayers to see just a taste of all the comfort and support Islam offers a pregnant woman.
