Easing Dua for labor pains

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.


Abdallah b. Habib reported that the Prophet (saws) said, "Speak." I asked, "O Messenger of Allah (saws), what should I say?" He replied, "Recite Surat al-Ikhlas (112th Surah), and the two last surahs (of the Qur'an), i.e. Surat al-Falaq (113th) and Surat an-Nas (114th), in the morning and evening three times, and it will suffice you for everything."


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.535 Narrated by Aisha

Whenever Allah's Messenger (saws) became sick, he (saws) would recite Mu'awwidhat (Surat Al-Falaq and Surat An-Nas) and then blow his breath over his body. When he became seriously ill, I used to recite (these two Suras) and rub his hands over his body hoping for its blessings.


Dear and Beloved Sister, although there is no specific dua or supplication mentioned in the authentic Sunnah which a believing woman must recite during her pregnancy, it was the Sunnah or way of the Messenger of Allah (saws) that he would recite the 112th Surah Al-Ikhlaas, 113th Surah Al-Falaq, and the 114th Surah An-Naas and seek the Protection of Allah Subhanah from any and all trials and evils.


In addition to the above Surahs, one may also recite the Aayat-ul-Kursi (Surah Baqarah verse 255) and in their own language and words remain constant in their supplications to their Lord Most Gracious to have Mercy on them and their family, and beseech and implore Him in all humility and hope that from His Unlimited and Endless Grace and Bounty He provides them with a righteous offspring who would be a coolness to their eyes in this world and the hereafter.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s 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,
