Unable to have Children

Asalam u alaikum

With due regards I wanted to seek some help on my query.

I am married for almost 10 months and we are trying to have a child since the beginning of marriage but till now allah has not blessed us. Everything seems normal as we got all the requisite tests done but now relatives and everyone keep asking questions to us regarding this and it becomes very awkward at times. Can you please suggest any dua in this regard. Our peace and strength is getting hampered every single day. Also we suspect my husband’s aunt has done some taweez on us as she was not happy with our marriage. Please suggest some solution to restore our peace.


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

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

You have adopted all the possible means to have a child. You got married and also conducted medical tests. Now Make Dua to Allah to put effect in the means you have adopted.

The following Duaas are effective:

رَبِّ هَبْ لِي مِنْ لَدُنْكَ ذُرِّيَّةً طَيِّبَةً إِنَّكَ سَمِيعُ الدُّعَاءِ [آل عمران: 38]

Translation: My Rabb, grant me pure children from yourself (by your grace). Without doubt you hear all prayers. (Aal Imraan:38)

رَبِّ هَبْ لِي مِنَ الصَّالِحِينَ [الصافات: 100]

Translation: O My Rabb! Grant me a son (righteous) from among the pious. (As– Saffaat: 100)

رَبِّ لَا تَذَرْنِي فَرْدًا وَأَنْتَ خَيْرُ الْوَارِثِينَ [الأنبياء: 89]

Translation: Do not leave me childless when you are the best (only one) of (those who provide) successors (progeny). (Al Anbiyaa: 89)

It is normal for family members to enquire about pregnancy etc as they love you and wish well for you. Do not regard their questions and comments in a negative way. When asked about pregnancy, thank them for wishing well and request them to make Dua as Allah alone decrees a child.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
