One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Read for baby boy
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 none 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.
My beloved and dear Sister in Islam, know and believe with total and absolute conviction that it is the Lord Creator Alone Who provides male offspring to whom He Wills and Pleases, females to whom he Wills and Pleases, males and females both to whom He Wills and Pleases, and leaves barren whom He Wills and Pleases.
is absolutely no harm if one makes supplications to their Lord to provide them
their off-spring of their desired gender; but whatever the Lord provides them with
they should be grateful to Him for all His favors. May Allah Subhanah fulfill your hearts
desire and 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 distress truly 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, know with absolute and total conviction that your condition and your desires are not unknown to your Lord Most Gracious, for He is well aware of the exact condition of each in His creation. Thus be constant and consistent in your supplications to the Merciful Lord, and beseech Him and Him Alone in humility, in awe, 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 supplications of His believing slaves.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 35 Surah Fatir verse 2:
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.
Another beautiful supplication taught by the Messenger of Allah (saws) to make when one has conjugal relations with ones wife is:
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.143 Narrated by Ibn Abbas
The Prophet (saws) said, "If anyone of you on having sexual relations with his wife said 'In the Name of Allah. O Allah! Protect us from the Shaytaan and also protect what you bestow upon us (i.e. the coming offspring) from the Shaytaan, and if it is destined that they should have a child, the Shaytaan will never be able to harm that offspring."
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
