Pregnancy bida.

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:

As Salam Alaikum Wa Rehmat Allahi Wa Barkatahu...


Alhumdulillah I m doing well brother Burhan and hope the same from you.


Brother actually this is not a single question I am asking but it should be a topic according to me as there are plenty and plenty of questions related to this and some of the Bidaahs going on... basically I am relating to the topic "Pregnancy".. Please apologise me if I have missed this topic in your list or may be its covered under something else...


I would much much appreciate if you could answer the below Questions related to pregnancy,


1. People say that the expecting parents should not inform anyone until the first trimester is over (first 3 months of pregnancy). Is this true according to the Glorious Qur`an and Sunnah ?


2. If the pregnant women recites Surah Yousuf (Chapter 12) the baby is going to be beautiful. Again is this true according to the Glorious Qur`an and Sunnah?


3. Pregnant women should recite Surah Maryam (Chapter 19) for a normal delivery or to over come the pains of delivery while giving birth specially in the 8th or 9th month ? Again is this true according to the Glorious Qur`an and Sunnah ?


Also the most IMPORTANT what was the behavior of the believing pregnant women at the time of Prophet Muhammad (SAWS)?


Jazak Allah for your time, please try to create a new topic for this so that the pregnant women can go through this and will overcome the bidaah and follow the righteous path at the critical stage of Pregnanacy.


Jazak Allah once again!



As Salam Alaikum

Answer:

 

Pregnancy bida

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.

 

Q-1: People say that the expecting parents should not inform anyone until the first trimester is over (first 3 months of pregnancy). Is this true according to the Glorious Qur`an and Sunnah ?

To the best of our knowledge we have not come across anything in the Glorious Quran or the authentic and established Sunnah which discourages, leave alone prohibits or forbids the expecting parents from informing anyone regarding the birth of their child!

 

One is at absolute liberty to inform anyone one wills and pleases regarding the birth of their child, or to abstain if one so wills and chooses.

 

Q-2: If the pregnant women recites Surah Yousuf (Chapter 12) the baby is going to be beautiful. Again is this true according to the Glorious Qur`an and Sunnah?

Again, to the best of our knowledge we have not come across anything in the Glorious Quran or the authentic and established Sunnah which declares that the recitation of the blessed Surah Yusuf by the expecting mother would result in making the child any more beautiful than what Allah Subhanah has already Decreed for the unborn child!

 

Q-3: Pregnant women should recite Surah Maryam (Chapter 19) for a normal delivery or to over come the pains of delivery while giving birth specially in the 8th or 9th month ? Again is this true according to the Glorious Qur`an and Sunnah ?

There is absolutely nothing in the Glorious Quran or the Sunnah which suggests that the recitation of the blessed Surah Maryam by the expectant mother would soothe the pains of pregnancy, or beget a normal delivery, etc.

 

These are self-invented notions of the ignorant and should neither be believed nor practiced by the believers who sincerely fear Allah and the Last Day.

 

Your Question: .Also the most IMPORTANT what was the behavior of the believing pregnant women at the time of Prophet Muhammad (SAWS)?

Respected sister, other than doing whatever is in her power to protect her and her unborn child, there is nothing special which a pregnant woman needs to do during her pregnancy which she would not do when not in that state.

 

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,

 

 

Burhan
