Can you give us a duā for having children?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


We are trying to conceive a child from 1 year and has not succeded yet.  My question is that is there any dua that we can recite that will help us in this situation. 

Please we are very worried and depressed as we have tried many times and there is no results.  We seek your guidance and advice.


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

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

May Allah relieve your worries and depressions. Ameen

Every thing that happens is by the Will of Allah and we consign all our affairs to Him as only Allah knows what is best for us.

There are many couples who have conceived after a long time so do not give up and do not become despondent. At the same time, trust in Allah and know that whatever the end result it is best for you.

You and your husband can make the following duā seven times after every salāh along with salawāt [blessings] on Rasulullah (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) one time at the beginning and one time at the end [i]:

رَبِّ هَبْ لِي مِنْ لَدُنْكَ ذُرِّيَّةً طَيِّبَةً إِنَّكَ سَمِيعُ الدُّعَاءِ

“My Lord, grant me from Yourself a good offspring. Indeed, You are the Hearer of supplication.”

[‘Āl `Imrān, 38]


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
