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

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

(1) We were unable to locate such a virtue for reading Sūrah Tahrīm. However, in general one should always read the Qur’ān and make du`ā’ that Allāh Ta`ālā fulfiles one’s needs as Allāh Ta`ālā says in the Holy Qur’ān:

قُلْ هُوَ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا هُدًى وَشِفَاءٌ

Say, “It (the Qur’ān) is, for those who believe, guidance and a cure.”[1]

2) The following should aid you in making du`ā for a child:

a)     Recite the following verse of the Qur’ān frequently:[2]

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. [Al-Qur’ān, Sūrah Āl `Imrān: 38]

b)    Mawlānā Ashraf `Alī Thānwī (rahimahullāh) states that if a barren woman fasts for 7 days and breaks her fast with water, then reads the following, then Inshā Allāh she will soon conceive:[3]

اَلْبَارِئُ اَلْمُصَوِّرُ

Translation: “Oh Creator, the Fashioner!”
