Baby Crying Throughout the Night

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


I have two daughters, age 5 years and 21 months. My younger daughter troubles me a lot at night. She starts crying all of a sudden at around 2 am every night and continues to cry for an hour or more for no reason. First I thought it was because I have stopped breastfeeding her but it was three months back when she got used to bottle feeding very well. I don’t understand why she cries every night. Could you please tell me some supplication or wazeefa for this issue? And could you please suggest something for barakah in my home and inner peace because unnecessary thoughts keep on crossing my mind which keeps me feeling stressed.

الجواب و باللہ التوفیق

You should read the following verse along with surah ikhals, 7 times, with durood shareef at the beginning and at the end and blow it in her right ear:

وَخَشَعَتِ الْاَصْوَاتُ لِلرَّحْمٰنِ فَلَا تَسْمَعُ اِلَّا ہَمْسًا(طه:108)

Repeat this same process and then blow it in her left ear. You should do this in the morning and in the evening. In addition, you should make a habit of reading masnoon supplications and surahs before going to the bed and blowing it on the kids after recitation. InshahAllah, the crying will stop. For barakah ensure punctuality in performing faraidh and sunnats. Make a habit of reading astaghfar 100 times, durood shareef 100 times, surah ikhas 70 times and Bismillah 800 times. InshahAllah once you have made the above your habit, you will feel khair, barakah and peace in your home.
