When the child is born do not leave it on for an instant.

Have not those who disbelieve seen that the heavens and the earth were closed up, and that We clove them asunder? Out of water We made all things alive. Will they not then believe?

There is a sign in the night for them. We draw off the day from it, an lo! They are in darkness.

The sun travels to an appointed place. This is the decree of the mighty, the all-knowing (Lord).

And the moon-We have determined stages for it till it returns like the old (dried) branch of a palm-tree.

It is not permitted to the sun that it should overtake the moon, nor can the night outsrip the day; each in an orbit, they float. A sign unto them is that We bear their offspring in the laden ark; And We have created for them of the like thereof whereon they ride.

If We will, We can drown them, then there shall be no one to help them, nor shall they be rescued.

Save by way of mercy from Us (to enable them) to enjoy themselves for a while.

When the trumpet is blown, then lo! From their graves unto their Lord they shall be hastening.

Dua'a 244  It is written in Tibb al A-immah that Imam Muhammad bin Ali al Baqir advised one of his companions, whose wife was in on the threshold of death from the severity of labour pains, to recite over her verses 23 to 25 of Maryam.

The birth-pangs led her to the trunk of a palm-tree. “Would that I had died before this”, she said, “and had been a thing forgotten, lost in oblivion!”

Then (a voice) called her from beneath her: “Do not grieve; verily your Lord has made a river flow right below you.

Shake the trunk of the palm-tree towards yourself, it will drop fresh and ripe dates on you.

O my Lord, do not leave me alone (childless), though You are the best of inheritors.

Verily, with every difficulty there is ease, Verily with every difficulty there is ease.

O people, fear your Lord. Verily, the quake of the hour is a terrible thing!

Supplications for Childbirth and Newborn Extract from Tohfatul Hashmiya  PDF

Supplication for getting a child

Imam as-Sadiq (a.s.) said: If one of you is having delay in getting an issue you must recite:

اَللّٰهُمَّ لَا تَذَرْنِيْ فَرْدًا وَ اَنْتَ خَيْرُ الْوَارِثِيْنَ وَحِيْدًا وَحْشًا فَيَقْصُرُ شُكْرِىْ عَنْ تَفَكُّرِىْ، بَلْ هَبْ لِىْ عَاقِبَةَ صِدْقٍ ذُكُوْرًا وَ اِنَاثًا آنَسُ بِهِمْ فِىْ الْوَحْدَةِ وَ اَسْكُنُ اِلَيْهِمْ مِنَ الْوَحْدَةِ وَ اَشْكُرُكَ عِنْدَ تَمَامِ النِّعْمَةِ، يَا وَهَّابُ يَا عَظِيْمُ فِىْ كُلِّ عَافِيَةٍ شُكْرًا حَتّٰی تُبْلَغَنِيْ مِنْهَا رِضْوَانَكَ فِىْ صِدْقِ الْحَدِيْثِ وَاَدَاءِ الْاَمَانَةِ وَ وَفَاءِ بِالْعَهْدِ.

Allaahumma laa tazarnee fardan wa anta khayrul waareseena Waheedan wahshan fayaQsoro shukree a’n tafakkoree bal hab lee a’aqebata s’idqin zokooran wa enaasan aanaso behim fil wAhdate wa askono elayhim MENAL wahdate wa ashKoroka i’nda tamaamIn ne’mah. Yaa wahhaabo yaa A’ZEEMo fee KULLE a’afeyatin shukran hattaA tublaghanee minhaa rizwaanaka fee sidqil hadeese wa adaa-il amaanate wa wafaa-e bil-a’hd.

O Allah do not keep me alone while You are the best of the inheritors. I am alone and terrified due to the loneliness. This worry has reduced my thankfulness to You. Give me true peace in the form of a boy or a girl so that by becoming attached to him or her my terror is removed and through which my solitude ends and that I may be thankful to You for the completion of this bounty. O the Bestower, O Mighty! After that bestow me such Tawfeeq that I am thankful for every peace. So that by this I obtain Your pleasure for my truthfulness, thankfulness and fulfillment of oaths.[1]

Another supplication for getting a child

It is narrated from Abi Abdullah (a.s.): One who desires that his wife become pregnant then he should recite two units (rakats) of Prayer after Friday prayer and in the prayer he should prolong the bowings and prostrations. Then he should recite:

اَللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّيْ اَسْاَلُكَ بِمَا سَاَلَكَ بِهٖ زَكَرِيَّا يَا رَبِّ لَا تَذَرْنِيْ فَرْدًا وَّ اَنْتَ خَيْرُ الْوَارِثِيْنَ اَللّٰهُمَّ هَبْ لِىْ مِنْ لَدُنْكَ ذُرِّيَّةً طَيِّبَةً اِنَّكَ سَمِيْعُ الدُّعَاءِ، اَللّٰهُمَّ بِاسْمِكَ اسْتَحْلَلْتُهَا وَ فِىْ اَمَانَتِكَ اَخَذْتُهَا فَاِنْ قَضَيْتَ فِىْ رَحْمِهَا وَلَدًا فَاجْعَلْهُ غُلَامًا مُبَارَكًا وَ لَا تَجْعَلْ لِلشَّيْطَانِ فِيْهِ شَرَكًا وَ لَا نَصِيْبًا.

Allaahumma innee AS-ALOKA BEMAA sa-alaka BEHI zakariyyaa yaa RABBE laa tazarnee fardanW wa anta khayrul waareseen. Allaahumma hablee min ladunka zurriyyatan tayyebatan innaka sameeu’d doa’a. allaahumma bismekas tahlAltohaa wa fee amaanteka akhaztohaa fa-in qazayta fee rahmehaa waladan faj-a’lho gholaaman mobaarakan wa laa taj-a’l lish-SHAYTAANe FEEHE sharakan wa laa naseebaa.

O Allah, indeed I ask You by that through which Zakaria asked You. That is he said: O My Lord! Leave me not alone and Thou art the best of inheritors. O Allah, grant me from Thee good offspring: surely Thou art the Hearer of prayer. O Allah by Your Pure name I have taken this woman as lawful for myself and taken her as a trust from You. If You have decreed to conceive a child in her womb, then make him a blessed boy and do not make Satan a partner or a shareholder in him.[2]

Imam Zainul Abideen (a.s.) advised some of his companions to recite the following for getting a child:

رَبِّ لَا تَذَرْنِيْ فَرْدًا وَّ اَنْتَ خَيْرُ الْوَارِثِيْنَ وَ اجْعَلْ لِیْ مِنْ لَدُنْكَ وَلِيًّا يَرِثُنِيْ فِىْ حَيَاتِىْ وَ يَسْتَغْفِرُ لِىْ بَعْدَ مَوْتِىْ وَ اجْعَلْهُ خَلْقًا سَوِيًّا وَ لَا تَجْعَلْ لِلشَّيْطَانِ فِيْهِ نَصِيْبًا، اَللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّيْ اَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَ اَتُوْبُ اِلَيْكَ اِنَّكَ اَنْتَ الْغَفُوْرُ الرَّحِيْمُ.

Rabbe laa tazarnee fardanW wa anta khayrul waareseena waj-a’l lee min ladunka waliyyan yaresonee fee hayaatee wa yastaghfero lee ba’da mawtee waj-a’lho khalqan sawiyyan wa laa taj-a’l lish SHAYTAANe FEEHE nas’eebaa. Allaahumma innee astaghferoka wa atoobo ELAYKA innaka antal ghafoorur RAHEEM.

O my Lord! Leave me not alone, and Thou art the best of inheritors. And make me from You a successor who would inherit me in my life and seek forgiveness for me after my death. And make him a goodly creation and do not make Satan have a share in him. O Allah, indeed I seek Your forgiveness and turn towards You. Indeed You are the Forgiving, the Merciful.[3]

It is narrated from Abi Abdullah (a.s.) that he said: A man came to him and said: O son of Allah’s messenger, I have eight daughters one after another but no son. So please pray to Allah, the Exalted and the Mighty, that He bestows me a son.

As-Sadiq (a.s.) said: Before you have physical relations with your wife put your right hand on the right of her navel and read the Surah “Inna Anzalnahu fee Lailatul Qadr” (Surah Qadr) seven times. Then have sexual intimacy with your wife; and you would obtain pleasing results. (She would become pregnant) When the pregnancy becomes apparent, when it is night put your right hand on the right side of the navel and recite Surah Qadr seven times.

The man said: I did thus and I got seven boys one after other and others also did it similarly and they were also bestowed male children.[4]

From Tibbul Aaimma from Sulaiman Al-Jawzi from Shaykh Madayani from Zurarah from Abi Ja’far (a.s.) that he said: I was in the group of Hisham bin Abdul Malik and I was issueless till I was suffocating, till the time he had a servant and a lot of wealth but no children. So we came to Abu Ja’far (a.s.) who said: Has Hisham sent you to me? Let me teach you a supplication so that you get a child.

He said: Yes, then he went to Hisham and his need was fulfilled. When he became free, the servant said to him: May I be sacrificed for you, the supplication that you have said, would you teach it to me?

He said: Yes, so recite everyday in the morning and at night: Subh’aan Allaah (Glory be to Allah) 70 times and seek Allah’s forgiveness ten times, and praise Him 9 times and end it the tenth time with seeking forgiveness, according to the words of Allah:

فَقُلْتُ اسْتَغْفِرُوْا رَبَّكُمْ۝۰ۭ اِنَّہٗ كَانَ غَفَّارًا۝۱۰ۙ يُّرْسِلِ السَّمَاۗءَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِّدْرَارًا۝۱۱ۙ وَّيُمْدِدْكُمْ بِاَمْوَالٍ وَّبَنِيْنَ وَيَجْعَلْ لَّكُمْ جَنّٰتٍ وَّيَجْعَلْ لَّكُمْ اَنْہٰرًا۝۱۲ۭ

FaqultuS taghferoo rabbakum, innahu kaana ghaffaaraa. Yurselis samaa-a a’laykum midraaraa. Wa yumdidkum be-amwaalinw wa baneena wa yaj-a’l lakum jannaatinw wa yaj-a’l lakum anhaaraa.

Then I said: Ask forgiveness of your Lord, surely He is the most Forgiving: He will send down upon you the cloud, pouring down abundance of rain: And help you with wealth and sons, and make for you gardens, and make for you rivers.[5]

Then the servant said that he got many children and after that he brought gifts for Abu Ja’far and Abi Abdullah (a.s.): Sulaiman said: Then I recited it while I had married my uncle’s daughter and was as yet childless. I taught it to my wife and she got a child. And the woman claimed that whenever she wanted to become pregnant she could do so by this; and she taught it to other issueless people and subsequently they got many children.[6]

Desire for childbirth

A person complained to as-Sadiq (a.s.) that he had many daughters. He said: Before having physical relations put your right hand on the navel of the woman and recite Surah Qadr seven times. When the pregnancy becomes apparent, get up in the middle of the night and place your right hand on the right of her navel and recite Surah Qadr seven times again. So he did as instructed and he got seven sons one after the other and others also who acted upon this got many male issues.[7]

Supplication for getting a child

It is narrated regarding Ali bin Husain (a.s.) that he said to some of his companions to recite the following for getting a child:

رَبِّ لَا تَذَرْنِيْ فَرْدًا وَّ اَنْتَ خَيْرُ الْوَارِثِيْنَ وَ اجْعَلْ لِیْ مِنْ لَدُنْكَ وَلِيًّا يَرِثُنِيْ فِىْ حَيَاتِىْ وَ يَسْتَغْفِرُ لِىْ بَعْدَ مَوْتِىْ وَ اجْعَلْهُ خَلْقًا سَوِيًّا وَ لَا تَجْعَلْ لِلشَّيْطَانِ فِيْهِ شَرَكًا وَ لَا نَصِيْبًا، اَللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّيْ اَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَ اَتُوْبُ اِلَيْكَ اِنَّكَ اَنْتَ الْغَفُوْرُ الرَّحِيْمُ.

Rabbe laa tazarnee fardanW wa anta khayrul waareseena waj-a’l lee min ladunka waliyyan yaresonee fee hayaatee wa yastaghfero lee ba’da mawtee waj-a’lho khalqan sawiyyan wa laa taj-a’l lish SHAYTAANe FEEHE sharakan wa laa nas’eebaa. Allaahumma innee astaghferoka wa atoobo ELAYKA innaka antal ghafoorur RAHEEM.

O my Lord! Leave me not alone and You are the best of the inheritors. And appoint for me from You a successor who would do good to me during my life and seek forgiveness for me after I died. And make him a goodly creation and do not make Satan a partner or shareholder in him. O Allah indeed I seek Your forgiveness and turn towards You. Indeed You are Forgiving, Merciful.

Recite it 70 times. Then those who recited this supplication much, Allah gave them what they desired from wealth and children and the good of the world and the Hereafter. For Allah has said:

فَقُلْتُ اسْتَغْفِرُوْا رَبَّكُمْ۝۰ۭ اِنَّہٗ كَانَ غَفَّارًا۝۱۰ۙ يُّرْسِلِ السَّمَاۗءَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِّدْرَارًا۝۱۱ۙ وَّيُمْدِدْكُمْ بِاَمْوَالٍ وَّبَنِيْنَ وَيَجْعَلْ لَّكُمْ جَنّٰتٍ وَّيَجْعَلْ لَّكُمْ اَنْہٰرًا۝۱۲ۭ

FaqultuS taghferoo rabbakum, innahu kaana ghaffaaraa. Yurselis samaa-a a’laykum midraaraa. Wa yumdidkum be-amwaalinw wa baneena wa yaj-a’l lakum jannaatinw wa yaj-a’l lakum anhaaraa.

Then I said, Ask forgiveness of your Lord, surely He is the most Forgiving: He will send down upon you the cloud, pouring down abundance of rain: And help you with wealth and sons, and make for you gardens, and make for you rivers.[8]

For a male child

It is narrated from Sulaiman bin Ja’far al-Jufi from Abu Ja’far, the first, Muhammad al-Baqir bin Ali bin al-Husain bin Ali (a.s.) that a man complained to him of lack of children from bondmaids and free women, but it was not granted to him and he was now sixty years old. He (al-Baqir) said: For three days after your obligatory evening prayer (Isha) and after morning prayers, recite:

سُبْحَانَ اللهِ

subhaanal laah

Glory be to Allah

seventy times:

اَسْتَغْفِرُ اللهَ         

astaghferul laah   

I ask for forgiveness from Allah

seventy times; and end it with the statement of Allah, the Mighty and Sublime:

فَقُلْتُ اسْتَغْفِرُوْا رَبَّكُمْ۝۰ۭ اِنَّہٗ كَانَ غَفَّارًا۝۱۰ۙ يُّرْسِلِ السَّمَاۗءَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِّدْرَارًا۝۱۱ۙ وَّيُمْدِدْكُمْ بِاَمْوَالٍ وَّبَنِيْنَ وَيَجْعَلْ لَّكُمْ جَنّٰتٍ وَّيَجْعَلْ لَّكُمْ اَنْہٰرًا۝۱۲ۭ

FaqultuS taghferoo rabbakum, innahu kaana ghaffaaraa. Yurselis samaa-a a’laykum midraaraa. Wa yumdidkum be-amwaalinw wa baneena wa yaj-a’l lakum jannaatinw wa yaj-a’l lakum anhaaraa.

Then I said: Ask forgiveness of your Lord, surely He is the most Forgiving: He will send down upon you the cloud, pouring down abundance of rain: And help you with wealth and sons, and make for you gardens, and make for you rivers.[9]

Then establish physical relations with your wife on the third night and you will be blessed, Allah willing, with a healthy boy. He (the man) said: I did that and the year was not over that I was blessed with a child.[10]

For children

It is mentioned in the manuscript of Shaykh Bahai (q.s.) that for a woman who is barren, someone who is Mahram for her, may write on the right side of her belly the verses mentioned below. It is of proven effect and 900 women have found it effective. Before it is done take a black fat young goat , which is defectless and not less than six months old. It should be slaughtered at a place with a ceiling (not under the open sky) and feed the cooked meat to 40 believers. Then she will get children, by the help of Allah, and the grace of these verses. The letters of the following verses should be written separately:

و ل و ا ن ق ر ا ن ا س ي ر ت ب هـ ا ل ج ب ا ل ا و ق ط ع ت ب هـ ا ل ا ر ض ا و ك ل م ب هـ ا ل م و ت ی ب ل ل ل هـ ا ل ا م ر ج م ي ع ا وَ لَوْ اَنَّ قُرْآنًا سُيِّرَتْ بِهِ الْجِبَالُ اَوْ قُطِّعَتْ بِهِ اْلاَرْضُ اَوْ كُلِّمَ بِهِ الْمَوْتٰى بَلْ لِلهِ اْلاَمْرُ جَمِيْعًا

Wa law anna qur-aanan suyyerat BEHIL jebaalo aw quttea’t BEHIL arzo aw kullema BEHIL mawtaa bal lillaahil amro jameea’a.

“And even if there were a Quran with which the mountains were made to pass away, or the earth were traveled over with it, or the dead were made to speak thereby; nay! the commandment is wholly Allah’s.”[11]

Write the letters of the verses separately.[12]

Supplication for difficulty in childbirth

For a woman having difficulty in childbirth the following supplication should be recited on a bowl full of water, three times, and she must drink from it and it should also be sprinkled between her shoulders and chest. She will deliver by the leave of Allah. The supplication is as follows:

بِاسْمِ اللهِ الَّذِىْ لَا اِلٰهَ اِلَّا هُوَ الْحَلِيْمُ الْكَرِيْمُ، سُبْحَانَ اللهِ رَبِّ السَّمٰوَاتِ وَ رَبِّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيْمِ، اَلْحمْدُ لِلهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ، كَاَنَّهُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَهَا لَمْ يَلْبَثُوْا اِلَّا عَشِيَّةً اَوْ ضُحَاهَا كَاَنَّهُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَ مَا يُوْعَدُوْنَ لَمْ يَلْبَثُوْا اِلَّا سَاعَةً مِّنْ نَّهَارٍ بَلَاغٌ فَهَلْ يُهْلَكُ اِلَّا الْقَوْمُ الْفَاسِقُوْنَ وَ صَلَّی اللهُ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اٰلِهٖ اَجْمَعِيْنَ.

Bismil laahil LAZEE laa ELAAHA illaa HOWAL haleemul kareem. Sub-hanal laahe rabbis SAMAAWAATE wa rabbil a’rshil A’ZEEM. Alhamdo lillaahe rabbil a’alameen.

Ka-annahum yawma yarawna maa yooa’doona lam yalbAsoo illaa saa-a’tam min nahaarIn balaaghUN fahal yohlako illal qawmul faaseqoon. Wa sallAL LAAHO a’laa MOHAMMADin WA AALEhi ajmae’en.

In the name of Allah, the One except Whom there is no god, the Forbearing, the Kind. Glory be to Allah, the Lord of the heavens and the Lord of the great throne (Arsh). Praise be to Allah the Lord of the worlds. ‘On the day that they see it, it will be as though they had not tarried but the latter part of a day or the early part of it.’ ‘On the day that they shall see what they are promised they shall be as if they had not tarried save an hour of the day. A sufficient exposition! Shall then any be destroyed save the transgressing people?’ And may Allah bless Muhammad and all his progeny.[13]

Another supplication for difficulty in childbirth

It is narrated from as-Sadiq (a.s.): Write for the woman who is having difficulty in childbirth – on a skin or paper:

اَللّٰهُمَّ يَا فَارِجَ الْهَمِّ، وَ كَاشِفَ الْغَمِّ، وَ رَحْمٰنُ الدُّنْيَا وَ الْآخِرَةِ وَ رَحِيْمَهُمَا، اِرْحَمْ، فُلَانَةَ بِنْتِ فُلَانَةٍ رَحْمَةً تُغْنِيْهَا بِهَا عَنْ رَحْمَةِ جَمِيْعِ خَلْقِكَ، تُفَرِّجُ بِهَا كُرْبَتَهَا وَ تَكْشِفُ بِهَا غَمَّهَا وَ تُيَسِّرَ وِلَادَتَهَا وَ قُضِىْ بَيْنَهُمْ بِالْحَقِّ وَ هُمْ لَا يُظْلَمُوْنَ وَ قِيْلَ الْحَمْدُ لِلهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ.

Allaahumma yaa faarejaL hAmme wa kaashefaL ghamme wa rahmaanUd dunyaa wal aakherate wa raheemahomaa irham folaanata binte folaanatIN rahmatan tughneehaa BEHAA a’n rahmate jamee-e’ khalqek.

O Allah, O easer of sorrow, and remover of grief, the Beneficent of the world and the Hereafter and their Merciful. Have mercy on so and so daughter of so and so with such a mercy that she becomes needless of the mercy of all Your creation. Ease for her, her afflictions and remove from her, her grief and make easy her delivery and judgment between them would be with truth and they would not be dealt with unjustly and it was said: Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.[14]

For ease in childbirth

It is narrated from Jabir bin Yazid Jufi that a man came to Muhammad bin Ali al-Baqir (a.s.) and said: O son of the Messenger of Allah, help me! He (al-Baqir) said: What is it? He replied: My wife is on the threshold of death from the severity of labor pains. He said: ‘Go and read over her’:

فَاَجَاۗءَہَا الْمَخَاضُ اِلٰى جِذْعِ النَّخْلَۃِ۝۰ۚ قَالَتْ يٰلَيْتَنِيْ مِتُّ قَبْلَ ھٰذَا وَكُنْتُ نَسْـيًا مَّنْسِـيًّا۝۲۳ فَنَادٰىہَا مِنْ تَحْتِہَآ اَلَّا تَحْزَنِيْ قَدْ جَعَلَ رَبُّكِ تَحْتَكِ سَرِيًّا۝۲۴ وَہُزِّيْٓ اِلَيْكِ بِجِذْعِ النَّخْلَۃِ تُسٰقِطْ عَلَيْكِ رُطَبًا جَنِيًّا۝۲۵ۡ

Fa-ajaa-ahal makhaazo elaa jiz-i’n nakhlah, qaalat yaalahytanee mitto qabla HAAZAA wa kunto nasyaM mansiyyaa. FanaaDAAHA min tahteha Allaa tahzanee qad ja-a’la rabboke tahtake sariyyaa. Wa huzzee elayke bejiz-i’n nakhlate tosaaqit a’layke rotaban janiyyaa.

And the throes (of childbirth) compelled her to betake herself to the trunk of a palm tree. She said: Oh, would that I had died before this, and had been a thing quite forgotten! Then (the child) called out to her from beneath her: Grieve not, surely your Lord has made a stream to flow beneath you; And shake towards you the trunk of the palm tree, it will drop on you fresh ripe dates.[15]

Then raise your voice with this verse:

وَاللہُ اَخْرَجَكُمْ مِّنْۢ بُطُوْنِ اُمَّہٰتِكُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُوْنَ شَـيْـــًٔـا۝۰ۙ وَّجَعَلَ لَكُمُ السَّمْعَ وَالْاَبْصَارَ وَالْاَفْــِٕدَۃَ۝۰ۙ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُوْنَ۝۷۸

WAL LAAHO akhrajakum mim botoone ummahaatekum laa ta’lamoona shay-anw wa ja-a’la lakomus sam-a’ wal absaara wal af-edata, la-a’llakum tashkoroon.

And Allah has brought you forth from the wombs of your mothers-you did not know anything- and He gave you hearing and sight and hearts that you may give thanks.[16]

Thus come out, O labor pains, Allah, the Exalted, willing. She will recover immediately, with Allah, the Exalted’s help.[17]

Additionally, write on the back of the paper the following verses:

كَاَنَّہُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَ مَا يُوْعَدُوْنَ۝۰ۙ لَمْ يَلْبَثُوْٓا اِلَّا سَاعَۃً مِّنْ نَّہَارٍ۝۰ۭ بَلٰغٌ۝۰ۚ فَہَلْ يُہْلَكُ اِلَّا الْقَوْمُ الْفٰسِقُوْنَ. كَاَنَّہُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَہَا لَمْ يَلْبَثُوْٓا اِلَّا عَشِـيَّۃً اَوْ ضُحٰىہَا.

Ka-annahum yawma yarawna maa yooa’doona lam yalbasoo illaa saa-a’tam min nahaar, Balaagh, fahal yohlako illal qawmul faaseqoon. Ka-annahum yawma yarawnahaa lam yalbasoo ilLaa a’shiyyatan aw zohaahaa.

On the day that they shall see what they are promised they shall be as if they had not tarried save an hour of the day. A sufficient exposition! Shall then any be destroyed save the transgressing people?[18] On the day that they see it, it will be as though they had not tarried but the latter part of a day or the early part of it.[19]

Fasten the paper on her middle and when her child is born do not leave it on for an instant.[20]

When the woman is in Labor

It is narrated from Abi Abdullah (a.s.) that he said: When the woman is in labor, write for her on a skin:

كَاَنَّہُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَ مَا يُوْعَدُوْنَ۝۰ۙ لَمْ يَلْبَثُوْٓا اِلَّا سَاعَۃً مِّنْ نَّہَارٍ. كَاَنَّہُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَہَا لَمْ يَلْبَثُوْٓا اِلَّا عَشِـيَّۃً اَوْ ضُحٰىہَا.

Ka-annahum yawma yarawna maa yooa’doona lam yalbasoo illaa saa-a’tam min nahaar. Ka-annahum yawma yarawnahaa lam yalbasoo ilLaa a’shiyyatan aw zohaahaa.

On the day that they shall see what they are promised they shall be as if they had not tarried save an hour of the day.[21] On the day that they see it, it will be as though they had not tarried but the latter part of a day or the early part of it.[22]

اِذْ قَالَتِ امْرَاَتُ عِمْرٰنَ رَبِّ اِنِّىْ نَذَرْتُ لَكَ مَا فِيْ بَطْنِىْ مُحَرَّرًا

Iz qaalatim ra-ato i’mraana RABBe innee nazarto laka maa fee batnee moharraran.

When a woman of Imran said: My Lord! Surely I vow to Thee what is in my womb, to be devoted (to Thy service). [23]

Then sew it with a thread and tie it on her right thigh. When she has given birth, remove it[24].[25]

From Jabir that he said: Go and recite the following on her:

فَاَجَاۗءَہَا الْمَخَاضُ اِلٰى جِذْعِ النَّخْلَۃِ۝۰ۚ قَالَتْ يٰلَيْتَنِيْ مِتُّ قَبْلَ ھٰذَا وَكُنْتُ نَسْـيًا مَّنْسِـيًّا۝۲۳ فَنَادٰىہَا مِنْ تَحْتِہَآ اَلَّا تَحْزَنِيْ قَدْ جَعَلَ رَبُّكِ تَحْتَكِ سَرِيًّا۝۲۴ وَہُزِّيْٓ اِلَيْكِ بِجِذْعِ النَّخْلَۃِ تُسٰقِطْ عَلَيْكِ رُطَبًا جَنِيًّا۝۲۵ۡ

Fa-ajaa-ahal makhaazo elaa jiz-i’n nakhlah, qaalat yaalahytanee mitto qabla HAAZAA wa kunto nasyaM mansiyyaa. FanaaDAAHA min tahteha Allaa tahzanee qad ja-a’la rabboke tahtake sariyyaa. Wa huzzee elayke bejiz-i’n nakhlate tosaaqit a’layke rotaban janiyyaa.

And the throes (of childbirth) compelled her to betake herself to the trunk of a palm tree. She said: Oh, would that I had died before this, and had been a thing quite forgotten! Then (the child) called out to her from beneath her: Grieve not, surely your Lord has made a stream to flow beneath you; And shake towards you the trunk of the palm tree, it will drop on you fresh ripe dates.[26]

The raise your voice with these verses:

وَاللہُ اَخْرَجَكُمْ مِّنْۢ بُطُوْنِ اُمَّہٰتِكُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُوْنَ شَـيْـــًٔـا۝۰ۙ وَّجَعَلَ لَكُمُ السَّمْعَ وَالْاَبْصَارَ وَالْاَفْــِٕدَۃَ۝۰ۙ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُوْنَ۝۷۸

WAL LAAHO akhrajakum mim botoone ummahaatekum laa ta’lamoona shay-anw wa ja-a’la lakomus sam-a’ wal absaara wal af-edata, la-a’llakum tashkoroon.

And Allah has brought you forth from the wombs of your mothers- you did not know anything-and He gave you hearing and sight and hearts that you may give thanks.[27]

Thus come out, O labor pains, Allah the exalted, willing, she will recover immediately, with Allah, the Exalted’s help.

It is narrated from Abi Ja’far (a.s.) that he said: If a woman experiences difficulty during childbirth, write these verses for her in a clean vessel with musk and saffron. Then wash it out with well-water and have the woman drink from it and sprinkle her belly and genitals. She will give birth at once:

كَاَنَّہُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَہَا لَمْ يَلْبَثُوْٓا اِلَّا عَشِـيَّۃً اَوْ ضُحٰىہَا.

Ka-annahum yawma yarawnahaa lam yalbasoo ilLaa a’shiyyatan aw zohaahaa.

On the day that they see it, it will be as though they had not tarried but the latter part of a day or the early part of it.[28]

فَاصْبِرْ كَـمَا صَبَرَ اُولُوا الْعَزْمِ مِنَ الرُّسُلِ وَلَا تَسْتَعْجِلْ لَّہُمْ۝۰ۭ كَاَنَّہُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَ مَا يُوْعَدُوْنَ۝۰ۙ لَمْ يَلْبَثُوْٓا اِلَّا سَاعَۃً مِّنْ نَّہَارٍ۝۰ۭ بَلٰغٌ۝۰ۚ فَہَلْ يُہْلَكُ اِلَّا الْقَوْمُ الْفٰسِقُوْنَ۝۳۵ۧ

Therefore bear up patiently as did the apostles endowed with constancy bear up with patience and do not seek to hasten for them (their doom). On the day that they shall see what they are promised they shall be as if they had not tarried save an hour of the day. A sufficient exposition! Shall then any be destroyed save the transgressing people?[29]

لَقَدْ كَانَ فِيْ قَصَصِہِمْ عِبْرَۃٌ لِّاُولِي الْاَلْبَابِ۝۰ۭ مَا كَانَ حَدِيْثًا يُّفْتَرٰى وَلٰكِنْ تَصْدِيْقَ الَّذِيْ بَيْنَ يَدَيْہِ وَتَفْصِيْلَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَّہُدًى وَّرَحْمَۃً لِّقَوْمٍ يُّؤْمِنُوْنَ۝۱۱۱ۧ

In their histories there is certainly a lesson for men of understanding. It is not a narrative which could be forged, but a verification of what is before it and a distinct explanation of all things and a guide and a mercy to a people who believe.[30]

From as-Sadiq (a.s.) that he said: Write these verses on a paper for the pregnant woman when she has entered her month (for delivery). She will not be afflicted with labor pains or difficulty at childbirth. Wrap a strip (of paper) lightly around the paper and do not tie it. Write:

اَوَلَمْ يَرَ الَّذِيْنَ كَفَرُوْٓا اَنَّ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالْاَرْضَ كَانَتَا رَتْقًا فَفَتَقْنٰہُمَا۝۰ۭ وَجَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَاۗءِ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ۝۰ۭ اَفَلَا يُؤْمِنُوْنَ۝۳۰

Do not those who disbelieve see that the heavens and the earth were closed up, but We have opened them; and We have made of water everything living, will they not then believe?[31]

And a sign to them is the night: We draw forth from it the day, then lo! they are in the dark; And the sun runs on to a term appointed for it; that is the ordinance of the Mighty, the Knowing. And (as for) the moon, We have ordained for it stages till it becomes again as an old dry palm branch. Neither is it allowable to the sun that it should overtake the moon, nor can the night outstrip the day; and all float on in a sphere. And a sign to them is that We bear their offspring in the laden ship. And We have created for them the like of it, what they will ride on. And if We please, We can drown them, then there shall be no succorer for them, nor shall they be rescued, But (by) mercy from Us and for enjoyment till a time.[32]

وَنُفِخَ فِي الصُّوْرِ فَاِذَا ہُمْ مِّنَ الْاَجْدَاثِ اِلٰى رَبِّہِمْ يَنْسِلُوْنَ۝۵۱

Wa nofekha fissoore fa-ezaa hum MENAL ajdaase elaa rabbehim yanseloon.

And the trumpet shall be blown, when lo! from their graves they shall hasten on to their Lord.[33]

Write these verses on the back of the paper:

فَاصْبِرْ كَـمَا صَبَرَ اُولُوا الْعَزْمِ مِنَ الرُّسُلِ وَلَا تَسْتَعْجِلْ لَّہُمْ۝۰ۭ كَاَنَّہُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَ مَا يُوْعَدُوْنَ۝۰ۙ لَمْ يَلْبَثُوْٓا اِلَّا سَاعَۃً مِّنْ نَّہَارٍ۝۰ۭ بَلٰغٌ۝۰ۚ فَہَلْ يُہْلَكُ اِلَّا الْقَوْمُ الْفٰسِقُوْنَ۝۳۵ۧ

Therefore bear up patiently as did the apostles endowed with constancy bear up with patience and do not seek to hasten for them (their doom). On the day that they shall see what they are promised they shall be as if they had not tarried save an hour of the day. A sufficient exposition! Shall then any be destroyed save the transgressing people?[34]

كَاَنَّہُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَہَا لَمْ يَلْبَثُوْٓا اِلَّا عَشِـيَّۃً اَوْ ضُحٰىہَا.

Ka-annahum yawma yarawnahaa lam yalbasoo ilLaa a’shiyyatan aw zohaahaa.

On the day that they see it, it will be as though they had not tarried but the latter part of a day or the early part of it.

Fasten the paper on her middle and when her child is born do not leave it on for an instant.[35]

For difficulty in childbirth

Write on a paper after Bismillah (In the name of Allah):

كَاَنَّہُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَہَا لَمْ يَلْبَثُوْٓا اِلَّا عَشِـيَّۃً اَوْ ضُحٰىہَا.

Ka-annahum yawma yarawnahaa lam yalbasoo ilLaa a’shiyyatan aw zohaahaa.

On the day that they see it, it will be as though they had not tarried but the latter part of a day or the early part of it.[36]

اِذْ قَالَتِ امْرَاَتُ عِمْرٰنَ رَبِّ اِنِّىْ نَذَرْتُ لَكَ مَا فِيْ بَطْنِىْ مُحَرَّرًا فَتَقَبَّلْ مِنِّىْ۝۰ۚ اِنَّكَ اَنْتَ السَّمِيْعُ الْعَلِيْمُ۝۳۵

Iz qaalatim ra-ato i’mraana RABBe innee nazarto laka maa fee batnee moharraran fa-taqabbal minnee, innaka antas samee-u’l a’leem.

When a woman of Imran said: My Lord! Surely I vow to Thee what is in my womb, to be devoted (to Thy service); accept therefore from me, surely Thou art the Hearing, the Knowing.[37]

Then tie it to her right thigh and when she has given birth, remove it.[38]

For Nifas (Bleeding after delivery)

Ibne Arabi has mentioned that the following should be written on a new and pure vessel and wash with it her face and give her to drink from it:

لَا اِلٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ الْحَلِيْمُ الْكَرِيْمُ، لَا اِلٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ رَبُّ السَّمَوٰاتِ السَّبْعِ وَ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيْمِ. كَاَنَّہُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَہَا لَمْ يَلْبَثُوْٓا اِلَّا عَشِـيَّۃً اَوْ ضُحٰىہَا. لَمْ يَلْبَثُوْا اِلَّا سَاعَةً مِّنْ نَّهَارٍ

Laa ELAAHA illal laahul haleemul kareem, laa ELAAHA ILLAL LAAHO rabbus samawaatis sab-e’ wa rabbul a’rshil A’ZEEM. Ka-annahum yawma yarawnahaa lam yalbasoo ilLaa a’shiyyatan aw zohaahaa. lam yalbasoo illaa saa-a’tam min nahaar.

There is no god except Allah, the forbearing the kind. There is no god except Allah, the Lord of the seven heavens and the Lord of the great throne (Arsh) “On the day that they see it, it will be as though they had not tarried but the latter part of a day or the early part of it. They had not tarried save an hour of the day”

Discomfort of post-natal bleeding will be eased.[39]

For difficulty in childbirth

From Jabir that he said: A man came to Aba Ja’far (a.s.) and said: O Son of Allah’s Messenger, help me. He (Abu Ja’far) said: What is the problem? He replied: My wife is on the verge of death due to the severity of labor pains.

He said: Go and read upon her:

فَاَجَاۗءَہَا الْمَخَاضُ اِلٰى جِذْعِ النَّخْلَۃِ۝۰ۚ قَالَتْ يٰلَيْتَنِيْ مِتُّ قَبْلَ ھٰذَا وَكُنْتُ نَسْـيًا مَّنْسِـيًّا۝۲۳ فَنَادٰىہَا مِنْ تَحْتِہَآ اَلَّا تَحْزَنِيْ قَدْ جَعَلَ رَبُّكِ تَحْتَكِ سَرِيًّا۝۲۴ وَہُزِّيْٓ اِلَيْكِ بِجِذْعِ النَّخْلَۃِ تُسٰقِطْ عَلَيْكِ رُطَبًا جَنِيًّا۝۲۵ۡ

Fa-ajaa-ahal makhaazo elaa jiz-i’n nakhlah, qaalat yaalahytanee mitto qabla HAAZAA wa kunto nasyaM mansiyyaa. FanaaDAAHA min tahteha Allaa tahzanee qad ja-a’la rabboke tahtake sariyyaa. Wa huzzee elayke bejiz-i’n nakhlate tosaaqit a’layke rotaban janiyyaa.

And the throes (of childbirth) compelled her to betake herself to the trunk of a palm tree. She said: Oh, would that I had died before this, and had been a thing quite forgotten! Then (the child) called out to her from beneath her: Grieve not, surely your Lord has made a stream to flow beneath you; And shake towards you the trunk of the palm tree, it will drop on you fresh ripe dates:

Then raise your voice with the verse:

وَاللہُ اَخْرَجَكُمْ مِّنْۢ بُطُوْنِ اُمَّہٰتِكُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُوْنَ شَـيْـــًٔـا۝۰ۙ وَّجَعَلَ لَكُمُ السَّمْعَ وَالْاَبْصَارَ وَالْاَفْــِٕدَۃَ۝۰ۙ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُوْنَ۝۷۸

WAL LAAHO akhrajakum mim botoone ummahaatekum laa ta’lamoona shay-anw wa ja-a’la lakomus sam-a’ wal absaara wal af-edata, la-a’llakum tashkoroon.

And Allah has brought you forth from the wombs of your mothers- you did not know anything and He gave you hearing and sight and hearts that you may give thanks.[40]

For Preventing miscarriage

From the book, Ighthatul Mazloom fi Kashfe Asrarul Ulum: Write for her in an amulet and make her wear it:

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ. اِنَّ اللہَ يُمْسِكُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالْاَرْضَ اَنْ تَزُوْلَا، كَذٰلِكَ اَمْسَكْتُكَ يَا وِلْدَ فُلَانَةَ بِنْتِ فُلَانَةٍ بِاَنْ تَعْرِفَ مَقَرَّكَ وَ مُسْتَوْدَعَكَ بِاللهِ الَّذِىْ لَهٗ مَا سَكَنَ فِىْ اللَّيْلِ وَ النَّهَارِ وَ هُوَ السَّمِيْعُ الْعَلِيْمُ.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. Indeed Allah had stopped the havens and the earth from falling down. In the same way you have been stopped O child of so and so daughter or so and so, so that you are recognized in your position and you are supplicated about from Allah, the One who has settled in the night and the day and He is the hearing, the knowing.

Also write:

اُسْكُنْ بِجَلَالِ اللهِ بِجَلَالِ اللهِ،

uskun bejalaalil laahe bejalaalil laah

Stop, by the majesty of Allah, by the majesty of Allah.

Say the following three times,

اُسْكُنْ يَا وِلْدَ فُلَانَةَ بِنْتِ فُلَانَةٍ بِاللهِ الَّذِىْ اَسْلَمَ لَهٗ مَنْ فِىْ السَّمٰوَاتِ وَ الْاَرْضِ طَوْعًا اَوْ كَرْهًا وَ اِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُوْنَ ولَبِثُوْا فِىْ كَهْفِهِمْ ثَلَاثَ مِائَةَ سِنِيْنَ وَ ازْدَادُوْا تِسْعًا وَ لَا حَوْلَ وَ لَا قُوَّةَ اِلَّا بِاللهِ الْعَلِىِّ الْعَظِيْمِ.

Stop! O child of so and so daughter of so and so by Allah, the One for Whom submit all those who are in the heavens and the earth willingly or unwillingly and to Him they return and they remained in their cave for 300 years and increased it by nine (309 years). And there is no power and might except by Allah, the Exalted and the Mighty.

For miscarriage

Write the following in an amulet and make the woman wear it to prevent miscarriage of her fetus: Surah Fatiha and:

وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْاِنْسَانَ مِنْ سُلٰـلَـۃٍ مِّنْ طِيْنٍ۝۱۲ۚ ثُمَّ جَعَلْنٰہُ نُطْفَۃً فِيْ قَرَارٍ مَّكِيْنٍ۝۱۳۠ ثُمَّ خَلَقْنَا النُّطْفَۃَ عَلَقَۃً فَخَـلَقْنَا الْعَلَقَۃَ مُضْغَۃً فَخَـلَقْنَا الْمُضْغَۃَ عِظٰمًا فَكَسَوْنَا الْعِظٰمَ لَحْــمًا۝۰ۤ ثُمَّ اَنْشَاْنٰہُ خَلْقًا اٰخَرَ۝۰ۭ فَتَبٰرَكَ اللہُ اَحْسَنُ الْخٰلِقِيْنَ۝۱۴ۭ اَمْسَكْتُ وِلْدَ فُلَانَةَ بِنْتِ فُلَانَةٍ بِاللهِ الَّذِىْ يُمْسِكُ السَّمَآءَ اَنْ تَقَعَ عَلَی الْاَرْضِ اِلَّا بِاِذْنِهٖ وَ بِقُدْرَةِ اللهِ الَّذِىْ يُمْسِكُ السَّمٰوَاتُ اَنْ تَزُوْلَا.

And certainly We created man of an extract of clay. Then We made him a small seed in a firm resting-place. Then We made the seed a clot, then We made the clot a lump of flesh, then We made (in) the lump of flesh bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh, then We caused it to grow into another creation, so blessed be Allah, the best of the creators.[41] I stop the child of so and so, daughter of so and so, by Allah, the One who “He withholds the heaven from falling on the earth except with His permission;” and by the power of Allah, “the One Who upholds the heavens and the earth lest they come to naught.”

For increase in breast milk

Write on three pieces of barley bread for three days and give one piece to the woman daily on an empty stomach.

فَقُلْنَا اضْرِبْ بِّعَصَاكَ الْحَجَرَ۝۰ۭ فَانْفَجَرَتْ مِنْہُ اثْنَتَا عَشْرَۃَ عَيْنًا. وَّفَجَّــرْنَا الْاَرْضَ عُيُوْنًا فَالْتَقَى الْمَاۗءُ عَلٰٓي اَمْرٍ قَدْ قُدِرَ. فَقُلْتُ اسْتَغْفِرُوْا رَبَّكُمْ۝۰ۭ اِنَّہٗ كَانَ غَفَّارًا۝۱۰ۙ يُّرْسِلِ السَّمَاۗءَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِّدْرَارًا۝۱۱ۙ كَذٰلِكَ تَدُرُّ هٰذِهِ الْمَرْاَةُ لَبَنًا خَالِصًا سَائِغًا لِلشَّارِبِيْنَ وَ صَلَّي اللهُ عَلٰي سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّي اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهٖ وَ سَلَّمَ وَ لَا حَوْلَ وَ لَا قُوَّةَ اِلَّا بِاللهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْعَظِيْمِ.

We said: Strike the rock with your staff. So there gushed from it twelve springs.[42] And We made water to flow forth in the land in springs, so the water gathered together according to a measure already ordained.[43] Then I said: Ask forgiveness of your Lord, surely He is the most Forgiving: He will send down upon you the cloud, pouring down abundance of rain.[44] In this way increase the breast milk of this woman and make it pure and enough for those who nurse at her. May Allah bless our chief, Muhammad the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) and there is no Power and Strength, except by Allah, the Exalted and the Mighty.[45]

For lack of Breast milk

Write this supplication and mix it in water then ask her to drink it:

فِيْہَآ اَنْہٰرٌ مِّنْ مَّاۗءٍ غَيْرِ اٰسِنٍ۝۰ۚ وَاَنْہٰرٌ مِّنْ لَّبَنٍ لَّمْ يَتَغَيَّرْ طَعْمُہٗ۝۰ۚ وَاَنْہٰرٌ مِّنْ عَسَلٍ مُّصَفًّى

Feehaa anhaarUM mim maaa-in ghayre aasen, wa anhaarUM mIl labANIl lam yataghayyar ta’moh, wa anhaarUM min a’salIM mosaFfan.

Therein are rivers of water that does not alter, and rivers of milk the taste whereof does not change and rivers of drink delicious to those who drink, and rivers of honey clarified.[46]

For purification from Menses

If a woman is at one of the sanctified places and she is having menses and it is not possible for her to stay there without being purified. She should supplicate as follows and she would be purified if Allah wills, and the supplication is as follows. As-Sadiq (a.s.) said: Perform the ritual bath (Ghusl), come to the door and say:

اَللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّيْ اَسْاَلُكَ بِاَنَّكَ اَنْتَ اللهُ الَّذِىْ لَيْسَ كَمِثلِكَ شَیْءٌ اَنْ تَفْعَلْ بِىْ كَذَا وَ كَذَا.

Allaahumma innee AS-ALOKA be-annaka antal laahul LAZEE LAYSA kamisleka shay-un an taf-a’l bee kazaa wa kazaa

O Allah, indeed I ask You by that You are Allah like Whom there is none. Do for me such and such.

Then say at this place:

طَهِّرْنِيْ مِنَ الْحَيْضِ.

tahhirnee MENAL haiz.

Purify me from menses.

Then her female companions or her husband must say “Amen” after her supplication. She will be purified from menses, if Allah wills.[47]

Another supplication for stopping menses

Write these letters on the rear hem of the garment of the woman in menses provided that cloth is ritually pure, and her bleeding will cease by the leave of Allah, the Exalted. The letters are as follows:

احد رس صطع كلم هؤلاء حوطا يحوطا حوطا لوطا لوطا لوطا اطرمتا سلك الدم بحق آدم سحطا ورس يصطلق

(Since the above words are just to be written down and they are cryptic words/letters, no translation or transliteration is provided.)[48]

The Prayer of a Mother for a Son from Above

Ali bin Mihran bin al-Walid al-Askari narrated from Muhammad bin Salim from al-Arqat- he was the son of the sister of Abu Abdillah as-Sadiq (a.s.)- who said: I was very ill and my mother sent for my maternal uncle. He came while my mother was outside the door of the house – and she was Umme Salama bin Muhammad bin Ali – saying: Alas, my boy! My uncle saw her and said: Gather your dress around you and go to the roof of the house. Then remove your veil so that you expose your hair to the sky and say:

رَبِّ اَنْتَ اَعْطَيْتَنِيْهِ وَ اَنْتَ وَهَبْتَهٗ لِيْ اَللّٰهُمَّ فَاجْعَلْ هِبَتُكَ الْيَوْمَ جَدِيْدَةً اِنَّكَ قَادِرٌ مُقْتَدِرٌ.

Rabbe anta aa’taytaneehe wa anta wahabtahu lee allaahumma faj-a’l hebatokal yawma jadeedatan innaka qaaderun muqtader.

My Lord, You gave me to him and You granted him to me. O Allah, renew Your grant today, surely You are Able and Powerful.

Then prostrate yourself and do not raise your head until your son is restored to health. She heard that and acted on it. He (al-Arqat) said: I rose at once and went out with my maternal uncle to the mosque.[49]

Supplication for sleep of the child (Proven)

Write on a paper and make the child wear it around the neck:

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ بِسْمِ اللهِ، وَ بِكَلِمَاتِ اللهِ التَّامَّاتِ الْمُبَارَكَاتِ، الَّتِىْ نَامَ بِهَا اَهْلُ الْكَهْفِ وَ الرَّقِيْمِ اَللهُ يَتَوَفَّى اْلاَنفُسَ حِيْنَ مَوْتِهَا وَ الَّتِيْ لَمْ تَمُتْ فِيْ مَنَامِهَا فَيُمْسِكُ الَّتِيْ قَضٰى عَلَيْهَا الْمَوْتَ وَ يُرْسِلُ اْلاُخْرٰى اِلٰی اَجَلٍ مُسَمّٰی وَ تَحْسَبُهُمْ اَيْقَاظًا وَ هُمْ رُقُوْدٌ اَفَمِنْ هٰذَا الْحَدِيْثِ تَعْجَبُوْنَ وَ تَضْحَكُوْنَ وَ لَا تَبْكُوْنَ وَ اَنتُمْ سَامِدُوْنَ.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. And by the perfect and blessed words of Allah. With which slept the people of the Cave and the Inscription. Allah takes the souls at the time of their death and those that die not during their sleep. And you might think them awake while they were asleep. Then He withholds those on whom He has passed the decree of death and sends the others back till an appointed term. And will you laugh and not weep? While you are indulging in varieties?[50]

Another cure for a child’s sleep

Write and make the child wear it:

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ اَلْآنَ خَفَّفَ اللهُ عَنْكُمْ وَ عَلِمَ اَنَّ فِيْكُمْ ضَعْفًا.

BISMIL LAAHIR RAHMAANIR RAHEEM. Al-aana khaffafAL LAAHO a’nkum wa a’lema anna feekum za’faa

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. For the present Allah has made light your burden, and He knows that there is weakness in you.[51]

وَ خُلِقَ الْاِنْسَانُ ضَعِيْفًا

Wa kholeqal insaano zae’efaa.

…and man is created weak.[52]

وَ عَنَتِ الْوُجُوْهُ لِلْحَيِّ الْقَيُّوْمِ وَ قَدْ خَابَ مَنْ حَمَلَ ظُلْمًا.

Wa a’natil wojooho lil-hayyil qayyoome wa qad khaaba man hamala zulmaa.

And the faces shall be humbled before the Living, the Self-subsistent God, and he who bears iniquity is indeed a failure.[53]

قُلْنَا يَا نَارُ كُوْنِيْ بَرْدًا وَّ سَلَامًا.

Qulnaa yaa naaru koonee bardanw wa salaamaa.

We said: O Fire! Be a comfort and peace.[54]

بِسْمِ اللهِ الْعِزُّ وَ الْكِبْرِيَاءُ وَ النُّوْرُ وَ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلٰى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهٖ اَجْمَعِيْنَ.

In the name of Allah, the Mighty, the Greatness and the effulgence and may Allah bless Muhammad and all his progeny.

For removing the panic and fear of the child

Recite the Surah Zilzal (Surah: 99)

Then recite these verses:

وَ مَنْ يَّتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللهِ فَهُوَ حَسْبُهٗ اِنَّ اللهَ بَالِغُ اَمْرِهٖ قَدْ جَعَلَ اللهُ لِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدْرًا.

Wa many yatawakkal a’lal laahe fahowa hasbohu innal laaha baalegho amrehi qad ja-a’lAL LAAHO lekulle SHAY-IN qadraa.

And whoever trusts in Allah, He is sufficient for him; surely Allah attains His purpose; Allah indeed has appointed a measure for everything.[55]
