Du'a and Dhikr to secure pregnancy

fetus Question:

As-Salamu `alaykum. Is there any special du`a' or dhikr I could recite during my pregnancy so that the baby would be safe, well and a practicing child?


Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

You can recite the regular waza'if (spiritual du`a's and dhikr) including Al-Fatihah, ayat Al-Kursi, surat  Al-Ikhlas, surat  Al-Falaq, and surat An-Nas. You can also read surat Maryam as some scholars have suggested. As well as this, you can always make dhikr by reciting formulas such as subhana Allah, al-hamdu lillah, la ilaha illa Allah, Allahu akbar, wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa bi Allah (Glory be to Allah, all praise be to Allah, there is no god but Allah. Allah is the most Great. There is no strength or power except by the will of Allah), etc.

As Imam Ibn al-Qayyim said: Consistency in dhikr renders all difficult tasks easy. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "Whoever clings to istighfar (seeking Allah's forgiveness), Allah will appoint for him/her a way out of all troubles, and will provide for him/her in ways he/she could never foresee in ordinary times!"

So cling to dhikr and istighfar and Allah will surely make things easy for you.
