Miscarriage child asks for mercy.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Dear Brother Burhan,
I have heard that when parents lose children i.e. if their children die -
those children will ask for their parents mercy on the day of judgement.
When a person does not have children but has miscarried by say two months
does the same apply?

Miscarriage child asks for mercy
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 Chatper 2 Surah Baqarah verses 155-157:
155 Be sure We shall test you with something of fear, and hunger, some loss in goods, or lives, or the fruits (of your toil); but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere.
156 Who say when afflicted with calamity: "To Allah we belong and to Him is our return."
157 They are those on whom (descend) blessings from Allah and Mercy; and they are the ones that receive guidance.
Abu Musa al-Ash'ari reported that the Prophet
(saws) said: "When a child of a servant of Allah passes away, Allah Asks
(although He Knows about everything in existence) to the Angels: 'Did you take
the soul of My servant's child?' They (the Angels) reply: 'Yes.' He, the
Almighty, says: 'Did you take away the apple of my servant's eye?' They say:
'Yes.' He, the Almighty says: 'What did My servant say at this?' They say: 'He
praised You and said: "Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'a un (Verily we
belong to Allah and to Him shall we return)." At this Allah Says: ' Build
for My servant a mansion in
Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (saws) said: "Allah, the Exalted and Glorious Says: 'I have no better reward than Paradise for a believing servant of Mine who is patient and resigned when I take away one of his beloved, one among those he most cherishes in the world."

If Allah Subhanah Wills and Decrees an affliction upon one amongst His believing slaves, and the believer patiently perseveres in their trial and remains grateful to their Lord and keeps their faith and trust in Him and Him Alone..not only will they pass the trial laid upon them by their Lord, but their Lord will reward them for their faith and their patience.
If Allah Subhanah Wills and Decrees that He takes the life of one (or more) of the off-springs of one amongst His believing slaves; and that slave-servant of Allah is patient and grateful and submits wholeheartedly to the Will of their Lord..the Messenger of Allah (saws) gave the glad tidings that the Lord Most Gracious Commands that a Mansion in Paradise be built for such a patient and grateful slave of their Lord.
Your Question: When a person does not have children but has miscarried by say two months does the same apply?
Although the reward mentioned in the hadith is specific to those whose children die in their infancy, the vast majority of the scholars are of the opinion that it is safe to assume that those believers whom the Lord has Willed and Decreed to put in a trial by leaving them childless, or the believing parents of unborn children who suffer miscarriageif they accept the Decree of their Lord with patience and are grateful in their times of these severe trialsthey too would receive unimaginable rewards from their Lord for their patience.
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.
