Im 32 year old female & my husband is 35 years old & married for 3 years. we have been trying for children for 2 years & it seened i had problem. 2 years ago we had a check up & found out that my fallopian tubes damaged & other one is blocked. Doctors told us that we need to do IVF, if we want to have children. we collected money & had our 1st IVF procedure done, but unfortunatly failed. Then after a year we did our 2nd IVF procedure, this one also failed. And, now we are going to do the 3rd IVF. Im worried & scared, we really want to have child badly & want this 3rd IVF to succeed without any problems.
Is there any dua or prayer for us people like us can do & help our 3rd attempt of IVF to succeed ?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
Allah the Almighty states in the Holy Qur’ān:
لِلَّهِ مُلْكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ يَخْلُقُ مَا يَشَاءُ يَهَبُ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ إِنَاثًا وَيَهَبُ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ الذُّكُورَ
أَوْ يُزَوِّجُهُمْ ذُكْرَانًا وَإِنَاثًا وَيَجْعَلُ مَنْ يَشَاءُ عَقِيمًا إِنَّهُ عَلِيمٌ قَدِيرٌ
“The sovereignty of the Heavens and the Earth belong solely to Allah. He creates what He wills and He grants female offspring to whom He wishes and He grants male offspring to whom He wishes.
Or He bestows upon some both male and female and makes barren who He wishes. Verily He (Allah) is All-knowing, Almighty.” (Qur’ān 42:49)
Everything is in the power of Almighty Allah. Nothing is difficult for Allah Ta῾ālā. Allah blessed Sayyiduna Zakariyya alahis salām with a son when he had reached the age of 120 years, whilst his wife was 98 years old. [i] Never be despondent. Think positively and keep trying. You may make the following supplications:
رَبِّ لَا تَذَرْنِي فَرْدًا وَأَنْتَ خَيْرُ الْوَارِثِينَ
“Rabbi la tatharnee fardan waanta khayru alwaritheen.”
(Sayyiduna Zakariyya alaihis salām said) “Oh my Lord, do not leave me alone (childless); when you are the best of inheritors.” (Qur’ān 21:89)
رَبِّ هَبْ لِي مِنْ لَدُنْكَ ذُرِّيَّةً طَيِّبَةً إِنَّكَ سَمِيعُ الدُّعَاءِ
“Rabbi hab lee min ladunka thurriyyatan tayyibatan innaka same’ad du’ā.”
(Sayyiduna Zakariyya alaihis salām said) “Oh my Lord, grant me from your bounty pious children, Verily you are the Listener of all prayers.” (Qur’ān 3:38)
رَبِّ هَبْ لِي مِنَ الصَّالِحِينَ
“Rabbi hablee minas saliheen.”
(Sayyiduna Ibrāhīm alaihis salām said) “Oh my Lord, grant me a righteous child” (Qur’ān 37:100)
رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا
“Rabbana hab lana min azwajina wathurriyyatina qurrata a’yunin waj’alna lil muttaqeena imama.”
“Our Lord, grant us from among our wives and offspring comfort to our eyes and make us an example for the righteous.” (Qur’ān 25:74)
We make du’ā’ that Allah Ta῾ālā makes your IVF successful. Amīn.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
