In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 42 Surah Shura verses 49-50:
49 To Allah belongs the Dominion of the heavens and the earth. He creates what He Wills. He bestows (children) male or female according to His Will.
50 Or He bestows both males and females, and He leaves barren whom He Wills: for He is Full of Knowledge and Power.
beloved and dear Sister in Islam, keep your faith constant in Allah Subhanah,
the One and Only Creator and Bestower of the Worlds. May Allah Subhanah make your trial easy for
you, and may The Lord Most Merciful bestow patience and steadfastness on you to
accept whatever He has Planned and Willed for you. May Allah Subhanah bestow upon you righteous
offspring, who become the contentment of your eyes in the life of this world
and a source of attaining
One of the best supplications to make to the Merciful Lord when one wishes for an offspring is the humble and wholesome supplication of the Prophet Zachariah (a.s.) when he was childless until an abject old age.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 21 Surah Anbiya verses 89-90:
89 And (remember) Zakariya when he cried to his Lord: "O my Lord! Leave me not without offspring, though Thou art the Best of Inheritors.
90 So We listened to him: and We granted him Yahya: We cured his wife's (barrenness) for him. These three were ever quick in emulation in good works: they used to call on Us with love and reverence, and humble themselves before Us.
Another beautiful supplication one could make is the supplication made by the Noble Prophet Ayyub (a.s.), when truly distress seized him and he lost his health, wealth, and children as a trial from his Lord.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 21 Surah Anbiyaa verses 83-84:
83 And (remember) Ayyub when he cried to his Lord "Truly distress has seized me, but Thou art the Most Merciful of those that are merciful."
84 So We listened to him: We removed the distress that was on him, and We restored his people to him and doubled their number as a Grace from Ourselves, and a thing for commemoration for all who serve Us.
My dear and Beloved sister in Islam, be constant and consistent in your supplication to the Merciful Lord, and beseech Him and Him Alone in humility and in hope for all that your heart desires; for there is none in the universe other than the One and Only Merciful Lord Who has the Power to hear and respond to the supplication of His believing slaves. Do take advantage of modern technology in medicine as an asbaab or means to conceive, but keep your complete faith and trust in none but Allah Subhanah, the One and Only Creator and Sustainer of everything in the Universe.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 35 Surah Fatir verse 2: What Allah out of His Mercy doth bestow on mankind, there is none who can withhold: what He doth withhold, there is none can grant apart from Him: and He is the Exalted in Power, Full of Wisdom.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
