General advice

Shaykh Muhammad Ba Shu’ayb once advised, for the sake of any children we are to have to recite all our adhkar and awrad everyday and to ensure that we pray as many prayers in congregation with our spouse. Read as much Qur’an as possible. Try and do as much salawat on the Prophet (saw) as possible – in particular Salat al-Tunjina’ and “As salaam Alaikum ayuha-nabee wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu” As babies are said to be able to recognise certain sounds and music from their time in the womb, reading certain texts such as the “Book of Assistance” by Imam al-Haddad, is advised in order to bring about recognition. One of the Habaib also advised pregnant women to look at pictures of the Ka’aba when she was too tired to actively engage in ibada.

For those trying to conceive children

Recite Surah Fatiha (Surah 1) 41 times in between the sunnah and fard of Fajr prayer. Recite verse 38 of Surah Imran (Surah 3) as many times a day as possible.
