It is narrated from Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) that he said: One who has an unmarried daughter in the house should write Surah Ahzab on deerskin and keep it in a container and close the lid tightly in the house where she lives. Very soon a groom would be found for her by the leave of Allah.

Wash it with water and sprinkle it upon the head of the daughter whose marriage is intended and the aim shall be achieved by way of ease in the marriage by the leave of Allah.
For one who intends to marry and does not want his request rejected; It is narrated from the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) that he said: One who writes seven verses and puts it on a green cloth and sends it to people he will not be rejected, his intention shall be fulfilled by the permission of Allah.
It is that you write the holy verses by musk, saffron and rose water from the beginning of Surah Fath till the seventh verse on the dress of the unmarried girl that she wears and the following are to be written:
إِنَّا فَتَحْنَا لَكَ فَتْحًا مُّبِيْنًا. لِيَغْفِرَ لَكَ اللهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذَنْبِكَ وَ مَا تَأَخَّرَ وَ يُتِمَّ نِعْمَتَهُ عَلَيْكَ وَ يَهْدِيَكَ صِرَاطًا مُّسْتَقِيمًا. وَ يَنصُرَكَ اللهُ نَصْرًا عَزِيْزًا. هُوَ الَّذِيْ أَنْزَلَ السَّكِينَةَ فِيْ قُلُوْبِ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ لِيَزْدَادُوْا إِيْمَانًا مَّعَ إِيْمَانِهِمْ وَ ِللهِ جُنُوْدُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَاْلأَرْضِ وَ كَانَ اللهُ عَلِيْمًا حَكِيْمًا. لِيُدْخِلَ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِيْ مِنْ تَحْتِهَا اْلأَنْهَارُ خَالِدِيْنَ فِيْهَا وَ يُكَفِّرَ عَنْهُمْ سَيِّئَاتِهِمْ وَ كَانَ ذٰلِكَ عِنْدَ اللهِ فَوْزًا عَظِيْمًا. وَ يُعَذِّبَ الْمُنَافِقِيْنَ وَ الْمُنَافِقَاتِ وَ الْمُشْرِكِيْنَ وَ الْمُشْرِكَاتِ الظَّانِّيْنَ بِاللهِ ظَنَّ السَّوْءِ عَلَيْهِمْ دَائِرَةُ السَّوْءِ وَ غَضِبَ اللهُ عَلَيْهِمْ وَ لَعَنَهُمْ وَ أَعَدَّ لَهُمْ جَهَنَّمَ وَ سَائَتْ مَصِيْرًا. وَ ِللهِ جُنُوْدُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ اْلأَرْضِ وَ كَانَ اللهُ عَزِيْزًا حَكِيْمًا.

Surely We have given to you a clear victory. That Allah may forgive your community their past faults and those to follow and complete His favor to you and keep you on a right way. And that Allah might help you with a mighty help. He it is Who sent down tranquility into the hearts of the believers that they might have more of faith added to their faith and Allah’s are the hosts of the heavens and the earth, and Allah is Knowing, Wise. That He may cause the believing men and the believing women to enter gardens beneath which rivers flow to abide therein and remove from them their evil; and that is a grand achievement with Allah. And (that) He may punish the hypocritical men and the hypocritical women, and the polytheistic men and the polytheistic women, the entertainers of evil thoughts about Allah. On them is the evil turn, and Allah is wroth with them and has cursed them and prepared hell for them, and evil is the resort. And Allah’s are the hosts of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is Mighty, Wise. [1]

She would soon be married by the leave of Allah, the Exalted.
On the good fortune for the daughters ;
One who intends success and good fortune for his daughter, should give in Sadaqah (Charity) some dates for the sake of Allah, the Exalted, in the same way: He should calculate her age and for each year he should take twelve dates. If her age is 20 years then he should give 240 dates and it is necessary that he should recite Surah Fath, Surah Yasin and Surah Nasr on the dates. He would indeed achieve his aim by the power of Allah.
For fulfilling ones intention one should write the following supplication and tie it up in the hair of the daughter for forty days:[2]
وَ مِنْ كُلِّ شَیْءٍ خَلَقْنَا زَوْجَيْنِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُوْنَ. اَللَّهُمَّ بِحَقِّ قَوْلِكَ هٰذَا وَ بِحَقِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ عَلِىٍّ اَنْ تَرْزُقَ هٰذِهِ الْمَرَاةِ زَوْجًا مُوَافِقًا غَيْرُ مُخَالِفٍ، بِحَقِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اٰلِهِ اَجْمَعِيْنَ.
Wa min kulli shai-in khalaqnaa zaujaini la-a’llakum tadhakkaroon. Allaahumma bih’aqqi qaulika haadhaa wa bih’aqqi muh’ammadinw wa a’leey. An tarzuqa haadhihil maraa-ti zaujam muwaafiqan ghaira mukhaalif. Bih’aqqi muh’ammadinw wa aalihi ajmae’e’n.
“And of everything We have created pairs that you may be mindful.”[3] O Allah, by the right of this Your saying and by the right of Muhammad and Ali (a.s.) that You bestow to this woman a suitable husband and not unsuitable for her, by the right of Muhammad and all his progeny.


As for his own needs, he should write this supplication and fasten it in her neck, then soon she will be married after 40 days, if Allah wills:
لاَ اِلٰهَ إِلاَّ اللهُ وَ اللهُ اَكْبَرُ، اَسْاَلُكَ مِنْ بَعْدِ اَرْبَعِيْنَ وَ رَحْمَتُكَ، فَإِنَّهُمَا بِيَدَيْكَ لاَ يَمْلُكُهَا مِنْ اَحَدٍ غَيْرُكَ، وَ صَلِّ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اٰلِهِ اَجْمَعِيْنَ.
Laa ilaaha illallaahu allaahu Akbar, as-aluka mim ba’di arbae’e’na wa rah’matuka, fa-inna humaa biyadaika laa yamlukuhaa min ah’adin ghairuk. S’allallaahu a’laa muh’ammadinw wa aalihi ajmae’e’n.
There is no god except Allah, and Allah is the greatest. I ask You after forty days and Your mercy, the two of them are before You. No one has any power except You and bless Muhammad and all his progeny.[4]

“O Allāh (SwT)! Bless me with her affection, love and her acceptance of me; and make me pleased with her, and bring us together in the best form of a union and in absolute harmony; surely You like lawful things and dislike unlawful things.”

in Behaarul Anwaar from Imam Muhammad bin Ali al-Baqir (a.s.)
5. Even if a couple are not intending to conceive on the wedding night, it is recommended that the following Duās are recited for righteous children (whenever they are conceived):
a. The groom should then place his right palm on the bride’s forehead facing Qibla and recite:
أَللٌّهُمَّ بِأَمَانَتِكَ أَخَذْتُهَا وَ بِكَلِمَاتِكَ اسْتَحْلَلْـتُهَا فَإِنْ قَضَيْتَ لِي مِنْهَا وَلَداً فَاجْعَلْهُ مُبَارَكاً تَقِيًّا مِنْ شِيعَةِ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ لاَ تَجْعَلْ لِلشَّيْطَانِ فِيهِ شِرْكاً وَ لاَ نَصِيباً.
“O Allāh! I have taken her as Your trust and have made her lawful for myself by Your words. Therefore, if you have decreed for me a child from hver, then make him/her blessed and pious from among the followers of the family of Muĥammad; and do not let the Satan have any part in him/her.”
b. The following Duā should also be recited:
أَللٌّهُمَّ بِكَلِمَاتِكَ اسْتَحْلَلْتُهَا وَ بِأَمَانَتِكَ أَخَذْتُهَا. أَللٌّهُمَّ اجْعَلْهَا وَلُوداً وَدُوداً لاَ تَفْرَكُ تَأْكُلُ مِمَّا رَاحَ وَ لاَ تَسْأَلُ عَمَّا سَرَحَ.
“O Allāh! I have made her lawful for myself with Your words, and I have taken her in Your trust. O Allāh! Make her fertile and devoted.”

6. The groom should wash the bride’s feet and sprinkle that water in all the four corners of the room and house. Allāh (SwT) will remove 70,000 types of poverty, 70,000 types of blessings will enter the house and 70,000 blessings will come upon the bride and groom. The bride will be safe from insanity, ulcers and leprosy.8
7.It is narrated from Imam Jafar al-Sadiq (a.s.) that on wedding night, when the bridegroom goes to his bride, he should sit facing qibla, put his right hand on the forehead of the bride and recite the following dua:
اَللّٰهُمَّ بِأَمَانَتِكَ أَخَذْتُهَا وَ بِكَـلِمَاتِكَ اسْتَحْلَلْتُهَا فَإِنْ قَضَيْتَ لِي مِنْهَا وَلَدًا فَاجْعَلْهُ مُبَارَكًا تَقِيًّا مِنْ شِيْعَةِ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ لَا تَجْعَلْ لِلشَّيْطَانِ فِيهِ شِرْكًا وَ لَا نَصِيْبًا.
allaahumma be amaanateka akhaztohaa wa bekalemaatekas tahlaltohhaa fa-in qazayta lee minhaa waladan faj-a’lho mobaarakan taqiyyan min shee-a’te aale mohammadin wa laa taj-a’lish shaytaane feehi shirkan wa laa naseeban.
O Allah, by Your (declaration of) security I have taken her, and through Your words I have regarded her as lawful (for me). If you decree a child for me from her, then make him blessed, god-fearing, from the Shia of AhIul Bayt, and do not give Shaytan a part and a share in him.

Praise be to Allah confessing to His bounties and there is no god except Allah with sincere belief in His Oneness. And bliss of Allah be on Muhammad the chief of the creatures and on his chosen ones from his progeny. So to say: among the bounties of Allah upon the mankind is that He made it needless with lawful from that which is unlawful. Thus, Allah, the Glorified and the High said: And marry those among you who are single and those who are fit among your male slaves and your female slaves; if they are needy, Allah will make them free from want out of His grace; and Allah is Ample-giving, Knowing. And the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) said: “Marry and increase your population, for I will boast of my large Ummah on the Day of Judgment.” And he said: Nikah is from my Sunnah. Thus one who abandons my Sunnah is not from me. And may Allah bless Muhammad and the chaste and purified progeny.

Nikah Seegha (Formula)
Full Nikah Seegha (Formula)desktop
1. When the bride and the bridegroom, both are adult and sane and they want to recite their own Nikah Seegha and they can also pronounce Arabic properly, they should recite as follows: After the sermon the main rite of marriage begins.  Given here is the minimum that must be recited, as it appears in the risālas of the mujtahidsThe representative of the bride says:
زَوَّجْتُ مُوَكِّلَتِىْ بِمُوَكِّلِكَ عَلَى الصِّدَاقِ الْمَعْلُوْمِ
Zawwajtu-ka muwakkilat-ī….(name of the bride)
muwakkila-ka…..(name of bridegroom) ‘ala s-sadāqi l-ma ‘lūm.
I marry my client,……(name of the bride) to your client,….(name of bridegroom) for the dower that was agreed.
The representative of the bridegroom answers immediately:
قَبِلْتُ التَّزْوِيْجَ لِمُوَكِّلِىْ عَلَى الصِّدَاقِ الْمَعْلُوْم
Qabiltu t-tazwīja li-muwakkil- ….(name of the bridegroom) ‘alas-sadāqi l-ma‘luma.
I accept on behalf of my client. …(name of bridegroom) for the dower that was agreed.
The marriage is now complete and the man and woman become lawful to each other.  It should be noted that assent on the part of the bride’s wakil, and the acceptance on the part of the bridegroom’s representative even once is enough; the phrasea are repeated with a change of words five times merely as a recommended precaution.
THE PERMANENT MARRIAGE RITE WITH NO REPRESENTATIVES
The rite for a man and a woman do not want to engage representative for the recitation of the formula of ‘aqd is as follows:
The bride says:
زَوَّجْتُكَ نَفْسِىْ عَلَىالْمَهْرِ الْمَعْلُوْمِ
Zawwajtu-ka nafsī ‘ala ’l-mahri ’l-ma‘lūm.

PRECEPTS REGARDING DOWER (MAHR)
The mahr (or sadāq) is the obligatory wedding-gift which the bridegroom undertakes to give the bride.It is a token of friendship, a mark of honour for the woman, and security for her.It becomes the property of the wife and she has full rights to dispose ofit as she likes (see, e.g. Qur’ān4:24, 25,34). Anything which has value can be given as dower, and there is no specified amount. It should not be so high as to be beyond the financial status of the husband; it may  be given at, or immediately after, the marriage, or at any time later on; it may be paid in one or several instalments.  The woman has the right to allow the husband to have sexual intercourse with her without taking the dower.
An Islamic Marriage Contract - Sayyid Muhammud Rizvi
Al Al Al-Furqan Vol. 1 * 12Jumadi I 1427 * 8 June 2006 * No. 9: www.jaffari.org
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful O Allah, Bless Muhammad and his progeny Since marriage is a binding contract (‘aqd) in the Islamic laws (the shari‘a), it depends on three essential conditions:
1. the proposal from the bride;
2. and the acceptance from the groom;
3. and the mahr.
Mahr means the consideration that the groom agrees to give to the bride. (See 4:4)
It is the right of the bride and it is for her to specify or fix the mahr. The groom may either accept it or negotiate with her until they reach to an agreement. Mahr is not a price being paid for the lady; it does not mean buying a wife. It is a symbolic gesture of man’s true love for the woman whom he intends to marry. It doesn’t have to be monetary or material; it can even be a service (e.g., teaching the Qur’an or provided for higher education or paying for the hajj, the pilgrimage to mecca , etc). Moreover, the mahr can be immediate or deferred or partly immediate and partly deferred as agreed by both parties.
Besides the three conditions mentioned above, there are no more essential conditions attached to the Islamic marriage contract.
Optional Conditions
However, like any other contract (‘aqd), there is room for optional conditions in the marriage contract as well.
The concept of optional conditions is not an innovation or “a revolutionary concept;” it has existed in the shari‘a laws from the earliest days. Of course, its application in marriage contract has gained popularity in modern times. Shi‘i scholars of the early days of ghaybat, like Shaykh at-Tusi (d. 460 AH) in his an-Nih.yah, al-Khil.f and al- Mabsut, as well as of the later days, like Sayyid Muhsin al-Hakim (d. 1969) in Minh.ju ’s- S.lihiyn, have discussed the concept of “shart dhimn al-‘aqd – a condition attached to the contract.”
Even the marriage contracts of India and Pakistan had provision for “s.’ir shurut—other conditions” which, nonetheless, was left blank by most couples.
By looking at the problems facing Muslims of our time, te contemporary mujtahidin have started highlighting the issue of optional conditions in the marriage contract. In the Islamic Republic of Iran, for example, marriage certificate comes in a booklet form with optional conditions printed within it for the bride and the groom to sign on the dotted lines after each condition if they wish to include it in their marriage contract.
Why Optional Conditions?
The imams of the Islamic centres, the Muslim counselors and social workers have observed that some men abuse the rights given to them in marriage relationship. In order to prevent such situations and equip women with mechanism within the parameters of shari‘a laws, we have started recommending to potential brides and grooms to add a few conditions to their marriage contract. Both parties can put whatever conditions they agree upon except a condition which goes against the shari‘a laws.
The conditions that we recommend are mostly related to the right of divorce and division of property at the time of divorce.
1st Example: The Right of Divorce
Although marriage is sacred in Islam, it is also dissolvable. Divorce is allowed but as the last solution
However, the right of divorce has been given to the husband.
If a situation arises where the wife does not want to continue with the abusive elationship and the husband does not agree to give divorce, then the woman is stuck in that marriage. The Qur’an is very clear that “either retain your wife in goodness or release them with kindness.” There is no third option where a woman is just left “suspended, neither married nor divorced.” Imam Ja‘far as-S.diq (a.s.) said, “When a man intends to marry a woman, he should say, ‘I pledge by the covenant that All.h has taken to retain [my wife] in goodness or to release [her] with kindness.’” However, there are certain men who do exactly the opposite—they leave their wives suspended. How does the Muslim community deal with such situations? There are a variety of pressures which could be brought to bear upon the husband to divorce his wife:
(1) family;
(2) extended family;
(3) community elders.
As a last resort, the woman could approach (4) the mujtahid (a Shi‘a jurist) or his representative to intervene; and if he is convinced that the husband is being unjust, then he has the power to serve a notice to the husband and ask for his consent to divorce the wife. If the husband refuses, then the mujtahid can dissolve the marriage and pronounce the divorce even without the husband’s consent. In Canada , however, not all families have the extended family support to put such pressure; nor do we have a mechanism as a community (e.g., excommunication) to censure the man who is treating his wife unjustly. The only option is to approach the mujtahid; but that process, like any other judicial process, takes its own due time. In order to make things easy and fast in solving such marital problems where an abusive husband is refusing to give divorce, we encourage the couples, at the time of marriage, to add certain optional conditions to the marriage contract as seen below:
The husband gives an irrevocable authorization to the wife to appoint someone as his representative ( w a k i l ) for divorcing her, after seeking approval of the resident ‘alim* or her father* or her brother,* in the following cases:
1. if the husband marries another woman without permission of the wife named in this marriage contract;
2. if the husband ill treats and or physically abuses the wife to such an extent that it becomes extremely difficult for the wife to continue the marital relationship;
3. if the husband abandons the wife and does not provide for her for more than six months continuously;
4. if the husband divorces his wife in the civil court but refuses to give her the religious divorce.
* These are various options in order to prevent emotions from clouding the decision-making process on this serious matter of life.
The first condition might seem to be against the shari‘a law which allows polygamy; but it is not so. The condition does not prevent the husband from marrying a second wife; it gives a right of divorce to the first wife if she wants to disengage herself from this triangle relationship.
By putting these conditions as part of the religious marriage contract, it becomes easier for women to get divorce when they are faced with such situations.
2nd Example: Property Distribution:
From the shari‘a point of view, at the time of divorce, the wife is entitled to:
1. Mahr, if not already paid.
2. Her own property or belongings which she brought with herself at the time of marriage or whatever she acquired by way of earning or gifts or inheritance, etc.
In case of divorce, this leaves many women, especially the housewives, without any financial support. Unfortunately, the secular society as well as the Muslim community does not recognize the contributions of the “housewife.” Women’s liberation movement has degraded the status of the mother and the housewife as opposed to a “career woman.” Her hard work in managing the household, and rearing of healthy and good children who grow up to be productive citizens is not adequately recognized or appreciated even by her peers in the women’s liberation movement. The evolution of her title from “housewife” to “homemaker” has not yet elevated the status of the wife who chooses to stay at home, especially after the birth of her child.
From the Islamic point of view, a wife is not legally required to do the household chores and take care of her own children; it is the husband’s duty to provide for his wife and children. However, on a moral level, the wife is expected to help the husband in managing the household and taking care of the children. This difference on the legal and moral levels is so that a husband shouldn’t think of his wife as a slave or a servant; he should appreciate the contribution of his wife in his life. That is the true partnership in marriage.

It is in this background that we propose the following condition in the marriage contract which provides for some financial compensation for the wife if the husband initiates the divorce.
If the husband initiates the divorce, then the husband will give to his wife one-forth (or one-third or half*) of all the possessions that he acquired during the marriage period. In case of dispute about the cause for divorce, the Shi‘a Ithn.-‘ashari religious authority (the resident ‘.lim or the marriage committee or the arbitration board) will determine whether the divorce was initiated by the husband or the wife. * One-forth or one-third or half are various options that both parties can agree upon.Such a condition will hopefully discourage some brides from asking for exorbitant amount in the deferred mahr as a financial security. Let the mahr be a true consideration from the groom to the bride, and not a financial security certificate for after divorce.Muslims, women and men alike, must realize that getting anything from one’s spouse in form of spousal support or alimony through civil courts will not make it legitimate from the religious point of view. It will be considered ghasbi, usurpation.Such spousal support or alimony can become religiously legitimate only if the issue of division of property was included in the Islamic marriage contract. It must be clarified that the issue of child support is different from the spousal support issue: a father is still responsible for providing for the child even when the mother has the custody.
Other Remarks on Optional Conditions:
Although we do not encourage intra-faith marriage (i.e.,marriage of a Shi‘a Ithna-‘Ashari to a Muslim from other sect), if a Shi‘a Ithna-‘Ashari lady decides to go through such a marriage, then, it is essential to get the right of divorce “if she or her children will not be allowed to practice the Shi‘a rituals and rites.”

Question: Are these optional conditions only valid if they are added to the ‘aqd at the time of marriage or can a couple write up such an agreement even after the marriage? Would such an agreement be valid from religious perspective?
Answer: Yes, any couple who agree on such or other conditions —as long as those conditions do not contravene the shari‘a— can write such an agreement and that will be as valid as a contract signed at the time of the marriage.

A final note: The issue of optional conditions can be very sensitive —more so since it is not common in our communities— therefore, it is absolutely important to discuss and study the issue much before the actual marriage and not at the time of marriage ceremony.
For a sample of the Islamic Marriage Contract, you may refer to www.jaffari.org.
In a famous hadith, `Umar ibn Hanzalah asked Imam Ja`far as-Sadiq (peace beupon him) about the legality of two Shi‘as seeking a verdict from a non-Muslim judge in a dispute over a debt or a legacy. The Imam’s answer was that it was absolutely forbidden to do so. Then Ibn Hanzalah asked what the two should do, and the Imam replied: “They must seek out one of you who narrates our traditions, who is versed in what is permissible and what is forbidden, who is well-acquainted with our laws and ordinances, and accept him as judge and arbiter, for I appoint him as judge over you. If the ruling which he based on our laws is rejected, this rejection will be tantamount to ignoring the order of Allah and rejecting us is the same as rejecting Allah, and this is the same as polytheism.”

SOME REASONS FOR THE ABROGATION OF A PERMANENT MARRIAGE
There are some situation in which the bride or bridegroom can abrogate the marriage and separate without any divorce.
The following list contains some of the defects which, if a man finds them in the woman he married when he had not been informed about them before the marriage, entitle him to abrogate the marriage:
Insanity, blindness,certain sexual abnormalities, paralysis, leprosy, leucoderma, and other similar defects.
Likewise, the woman can abrogate the marriage if, among other things:
1)she comes to know after marriage that her husband had been insane before the marriage,
2)the husband becomes insane after the marriage
3)the husband is impotent.

Duas for Childbirth and Newborn from Book Tohfatul Hashmiya

Supplication 1 TH for getting a child
Imaam Ja'far Sadiq (A.S.) said that if a woman is being late in conception for a child, she should recite this Duaa:
الٰهم لا تزرني فرداً و انتٓ خيرُ الوارثين.
Allaahumma Laa Tazar'nee Fardan Wa Anta Khayrul Waaritheen,

so much that I am given Your Satisfaction for being sincere in my word, and giving back trusts, and being loyal to covenant
Alternate Translation
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 2 TH 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.

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]

Supplication TH 3for 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 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]


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]

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.

For preventing miscarriage 2
Write the following in an amulet and make the woman wear it to prevent miscarriage of her fetus: Surah Fatiha and this:
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.”



At time of Child Birth
DU-A'A 240
Imam Jafar bin Muhammad as Sadiq advised the followers of Muhammad and Aali Muhammad to recite the following du-a'a at the time of birth of a child for a safe and smooth delivery.
allaahumma laa tad'arnee fardaw wa anta khayrul waaritheen
waah'idean wah'shan fayaqs'uru shukree a'n tafakkuree bal hab lee a'aqibatan s'idqan d'ukooran wa inaathan aanis bihim minal wah'shati waskun ilayhim minal wah'dati wa ashkuruka i'nda tamaamin ni'mati yaa wahhaabu wa yaa a'z'eemu wa yaa mu'a'z'z'im thumma a't'inee fee kulli a'afiyatin shukran h'attaa tablughanee minhaa riz'waanaka fee s'idqil h'adeethi wa adaa-il amaanati wa wafaa-im bil a'hd
O my Allah, do not leave me alone (childless), though You are the best of inheritors. Sorrowfulness due to loneliness and sense of abandonment made me fall short of what I should have done to thank You, but (I beseech You to) give me an upright and honest posterity, male and female. On account of them change my loneliness with companionship and let there be ease and comfort instead of desolation, so that I should thank You on the completion of bounty, O the great, the giver of greatness, then keep me continuously in ease and comfort, till I am favoured with Your pleasure, because of my truthfulness in whatever I say, I promise and I do.

DU-A'A 241
According to Imam Jafar bin Muhammad as Sadiq if it is stipulated that the childbirth may not be easy, write the following portions of verses 35 of al Ahqaf, 46 of an Nazi-a't and 35 of Ali Imran on the hide of a deer and tie it as a tawid around the woman's right thigh.
Ka-annahum yawma yarawna maa yoo-a'doona lam yalbathooo illaa saa-a'tam min nahaar.
ka-annahum yawma yarawnahaa lam yalabathooo illaa a'shiyyatan aw z'uh'aahaa
id qaalatim-ra-atu i'mraana rabbi innee nad'artu laka maa fee bat'nee muh'arraran
On the day when they will see what they have been promised, (they will realize) that they had not tarried but an hour of the day.
On the day they see it, it will seem as if they had not tarried (in their graves) but a (single) evening, or the following morning.
When (Hannah) the wife of Imran said: “My Lord, verily I have vowed to You that whatever is in my womb to be (exclusively) dedicated (to Your service).

DU-A'A 242
It is written in Tibb al A-immah that Imam Jafar bin Muhammad as Sadiq said that write verse 30 of Anbiya and verses 37 to 44 and 51 of Ya sin on one side of a piece of paper and verse 35 of Ahqaf and verse 46 of Nazi-at on the other side, wrap a strip of paper lightly around it, and then fasten it on the middle of a woman who has entered her month of delivery. When the child is born do not leave it on for an instant.
awlam yarallad'eena kafarooo annas samaawaati wal arz'a kaanataa ratqan fa-fataqnaaahumma wa ja-a'lnaa minal maaa-i kulla shay-in h'ayy a-falaa yoominoon wa aayatullahumul layl naslakhu minhun nahaara fa-id'aa hum muz'limoon

illaa rah'matam minnaa wa mataa-a'n ilaa h'een wa nufikha fis' s'oori fa-id'aa hum minal ajdaathi ilaa rabbihum yansiloon
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.

ka-annahum yawma yarawna maa yoo-a'doona lam yalbathooo illaa saa-a'tam min nahaar balaagh fahal yuhlaku illal qawmul faasiqoon ka-annahum yawma yarawnahaa lam yalbathooo illaa a'shiyyatan aw z'uh' aahaa
On the day when they will see what they have been promised, (they will realize) that they had not tarried but an hour of the day. A (clear) deliverance (of the message this is). So none will be destroyed save those who transgress. On the day they see it, it will seem as if they had not tarried (in their graves) but a (single) evening, or the following morning.

Dua'a 243
Imam Ali ibn abi Talib advised the followers of Muhammad and Aali Muhammad to write the following du-a'a with saffron on a piece of paper and tie it to the right arm or the neck of the mother as a ta'wid for as safe childbirth. O He who creates life from life, O He who brings out life from life, O He who delivers life from life, deliver (the child from the womb). yaa khaaliqan nafsi minan nafsi wa mukhrijan nafsi minan nafsi wa mukhlis'an nafsi minan nafsi khallis'haa
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.
fa-ajaaa-a hal makhaaz'u ilaa jid-i'n nakhlah qaalat yaalaytanee mittu qabla haad'aa wa kuntu nasyam mansiyyaa
fanaadaaha min tah'tihaaa allaa tah'zanee qad ja-a'la rabbuki tah'taki sariyyaa
wa huzzeee ilayki bijid -in nakhlati tusaaqit a'layki rut'aban janiyya
wallaahu akhrajakum mim but'ooni ummahaatikum laa ta'-lamoona shay-aw wa ja-a'la lakumus sam-a'wal abs'aara wal af-idata la-a'llakum tashkuroon
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.

Dua'a 245
It is written in T'ibb al A-immah that Imam Ali ibn Talib said that for a woman experiencing difficulty in childbirth write verses 5 and 6 of Inshirah 7 times and verses 1 and 2 of al Hajj once on the hide of a deer and fasten it to her groin.
fa-inna ma-a'l u'sri yusraa inna ma-a'l u'sri yusraa
yaaa ayyuhan naasut-taqoo rabbakum inna zalzalatas saa-a'ti shay-un a'z'eem
yawma tarawnahaa tad'halu kullu murz'i -a tin a'mmaaa arz'a-at wa taz'a-u kullu d'aati h'amlin h'amlahaa wa taran-naasa sukaaraa wa maa hum bisukaara wa laakinna a'd'aaballaahi shadee
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! The day you shall behold it, every suckling mother shall forsake her suckling, and every pregnant female shall drop her load. Your shall behold the people (as) drunken, yet they will not be drunken, but the wrath of Allah will be terrible.

Dua'a 246
It is written in Tibb al A-immah that Imam Muhammad bin Ali al Baqir said that: if a woman experiences difficulty during childbirth, write verse 111 of Yusuf, verse 35 of Ajwaf and verse 46 of Nazi-at in a vessel cleaned with musk and saffron then wash it with spring water and give her some water to drink and spring the rest over her body and genitals.
laqad kaana fee qas'as'ihim i'bratul li-oolil albaab maa kaana h'adeethay yuftaraa wa laakin tas'deeqallad'ee bayna yadayhi wa tafs'eela kulli shay-iw wa hudaw wa rah'matal liqawmiy yoominoon
Indeed there is a lesson in their narratives for men of understanding. It is not a forged tale but a confirmation of what went before it, and a detailed exposition of all things, and a guide and a mercy for those who believe.


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.

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.

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

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

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]

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]

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]

(ii) and write them again with saffron on a china plate, wash it with pure water and give it to the mother to drink.
allaahu ya'-lamu maa gtah'milu kullu unthaa wa maa tagheez'ul arh'aamu wa maa tazdaad wa kullu shay-in i'ndahoo bimiqdaar a'alimul ghaybi wash shahaadatil kaaabeerul muta-a'al
Allah knows what every female bears, and that which the wombs fall short (of completion) and that which they exceed. And every thing with Him is measured. (He is) the knower of the unseen and the seen, the great, the highest high

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]
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]
The Prayer of a Mother for a Son's cure
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
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 2
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.
Bismil laahil i’zzo wal kibreyaa-o wan nooro wa sallAL LAAHO a’laa MOHAMMADin WA AALEhi ajmae’en.
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]

Rites At The Birth of a Child
Aqiqa / Circumscision
On the seventh day after the birth of a child Aqīq is performed. Family friends and other Muslim should be invited. ‘Aqīq consists of giving a name to the baby, shaving its hair, and offering a sacrifice. It is recommended that the new-born baby should be given either a compound name containing one of the most beautiful names of God (e.g. ‘Abd al-Hamīd), or the name of one of the fourteen Ma’sūms or another holy figure; or that a name should be found from the Qur’ān. In the latter case, the Qur’ān is opened with the solemn intention of seeking God’s guidance and blessing and saying
bi-’smi ’llāhi r-rahmān r-rahīm, and then a name derived from one of the Arabic roots found on that page is chosen.
The following is then recited (first that for a boy, then for a girl):
بِسْمِ اللهِ وَبِاللهِ اَلٌلهُمٌَ هَاذِهِ عَقِيْقَةُ عَنْ...بْنِ... لَحْمُهَا بِلَحْمِهِ وَدَمُهَا بِدَمِهِ بِعَظْمُهَا بِعَظْمٍهِ وَ شَعْرُهاَ بِشَعْرِهِ بِجَلْدُهَا بِجِلْدِهِ اَللهُمٌَ اَجْعَلهَا وَقَاءً لِاَلِ مُحَمٌَدٍ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ السٌَلامُ
Bi-’smi ’llāhi wa-bi ’llāh. Allāhumma hādhihi ‘aqīqatun ‘an ….(name of the boy)
Ibne …. (name of the father) lahmu-hābi-lahmi-hi wa-damu-hābi-dami-hi wa-‘azmu-hābi-‘azmi-hi wa-sha’ru-hā bisha’ri-hi wa-jildu-hābi-jildi-h. Allāhumma’j΄al-hā waqā’an li-āli Muhammadin ‘alay-hi wa-āli-hi s-salām.
In the Name of God and through God, this is the ‘aqīqa of…. (name of the boy), son of …. (name of the father): its flesh [i.e., the flesh of the sacrifice of the ‘aqīqa] for his flesh blood, its bone for his bone, its hair for his hair, its skin for his skin. O God, let it be a protection of the family of Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family.

سْمِ اللهِ وَبِاللهِ اَلٌلهُمٌَ هَاذِهِ عَقِيْقَةُ... ابْنَةِ.... لَحْمُهَا بِلَحْمِهَا وَدَمُهَا بِدَمِهَا بِعَظْمُهَا بِعَظْمٍهَا وَ شَعْرُهاَ بِشَعْرِهَا بِجَلْدُهَا بِجِلْدِهَا اَللهُمٌَ اَجْعَلْهَا وَقَاءً لِاَلِ مُحَمٌَدٍ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ السٌَلامُ
Bi-’smi ’llāhi wa-bi-llāh. Allāhumma hādhihi ‘aqīqatun ‘an ….(name of the girl) Ibnati . . . (name of the father) lahmu-hābi-lahmi-hā wa-damu-hābi-dami-hāwa- ‘azmu-hābi- ‘azmi-hā wa-sha΄ru-hābi-sha΄ri-hā wa-jildu- hābi-jildi-hā. Allāhmma’ j΄al-hā waqā’an li-āli Muhammadin ‘alay-hi wa-āli-hi s-salām.

In the Name of God and through God, this is the ‘aqīqa of…..(name of the girl), daughter of …. (name of the father): its flesh for her flesh, its blood for her blood, its bones for her bones, its hair for her hair, its skin for her skin. O God, let it be a protection of the family of Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family.

The hair of the baby s shaved. It is recommended to weigh the cut hair in silver, and give its value to the poor or to orphans as alms. A goat, a sheep or other such animal should be sacrificed either after shaving the hair or at the same time, but not before. It is recommended to read the following prayer at the time when the animal is about to be slaughtered:
ياقَوْمِ اِنٌِى بَرِىءُ مِِّمَّا تُشْرِكُوْنَ، اِنٌِى وَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِىَ لِلَّذِىْ فَطَرَ السَّمَوَتِ وَالْاَرْضَ حَنِيْفًا وَّمَآ اَنَا مِنَ الْمُشْرِكِيْنَ- اِنَّ صَلَاتِىْ وَ نُسُكِىْ وَ مَحْيَاىَ وَمََاتِىْ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ- لَا شَرِيْكَ لَهُ وَبِذَلِكَ اُمِرْتُ وَ اَنَا اَوَّلُ الْمُسْلِمِيْنَ- اَلّلهُمَّ مِنْكَ وَ لَكَ بِسْمِ اللهِ وَاللهُ اَكْبَرُ اَلّلهُمَّ صَلِِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ تَقَبَّلْ مِنْ....بْنِ...
Yā qawmi innī barī’un mim-mā tushrikūna innī wajjahtu wajhīya li-’lladhī fatara s-samāwāti wa-l-arda hanīfam musliman, wa-mā anā mina l-mushrikīna. Inna salāt-ī wa nusuk-ī wa-mahyāyā wa-mamāt-īli-’llāhi rabbil-‘alamīna sharīka la-h.
Wa-bi dhālika umirtu wa-anā mina l-muslimīna allāhumma min-ka wa-la-kabi-’smi’llāhi wa-’llāhu akabar.
Allāhumma salli ‘alā Muhammadin wa-āli Muhammadin wa-taqabbal min…..
(name of child) ibni (for a boy) / binti (for a girl)
…. (name of father)

O gathering, I am free from what you associate; I turn my face to He who split the heavens and the earth, a true believer and a Muslim, and not one of the polytheists. My prayer, my piety, my living, and my dying are for God, the Lord of the Words. O God, from You and to You, in the Name of God; God is greater.
O God, bless Muhammad, and accept [this] from … (name of the child).
Son / daughter of …… (name of the father).

After the sacrifice, the greater part of the meat should be distributed among the poor and needy. It may also be served to the guests, but it is disapproved for the parents of the baby and their dependents to eat it.
If, due to any reason, ‘aqīq is not performed on the seventh day after the birth of the child, it may be offered later on, at any time, even by the child itself after attaining puberty.
This rite is not obligatory but recommended, and there are many Traditions which emphasize it.

Dua'a 252
According to Imam Jafar bin Muhammad as Sadiq 9as)recite either of the following du'a'a at the time of slaughtering the animal for aqiqah (The ceremony of shaving the hair of an infant on the sixth day after birth)
If the child is a female say words in brackets :

In the name of Allah and by Allah, this aqiqa (sheep slaughtered) is of (mention the name of the child with father’s name); its flesh (instead of) his/her flesh, its blood (instead of) his/her blood, its bones, (instead of) his/her bones (are offered) to You. O Allah, (accept it) as that by which (this child) may be protected and preserved, in the name of the children of Muhammad, blessings of Allah be on him and on his children, and peace.
In the name of Allah, by Allah, praise be to Allah, Allah is the greatest, faith is in Allah, thanks to the messenger of Allah (blessings of Allah be on him and on his children) for safeguarding His command, gratitude for His sustenance, and awareness of us Ahl ul Bayt (our merits) by His grace.
O Allah, verily You have given us a son. You alone know what You have given and what has been granted, and (You alone know everything about) whatever You create. So accept (our offering offered) in accordance with Your command and the traditions of Your prophet and messenger (blessings of Allah be on him and on his children), and keep away the accursed Shaytan from us. This blood is pouring out for Your sake only (a.s.) there is no partner to share (it) with You, O my Allah, praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. O my Allah, this meat (instead of) his meat, this blood (instead of) his blood, these bones (instead of) his bones., these hair (instead of) his hair, this skin (instead of) his skin (are offered to You), so O my Allah, accept this (sacrifice) instead of the sacrifice of (mention the name of the child.


After the birth of a baby, it is recommended that the Adhān Should be recited in its right ear ad the iqāma in its left ear. This act should be performed after the child is washed and wrapped in a cloth, or later, within a few days.

It is recommended that the suras al-Hāqqa (sura 69), al-Falaq (sura 113), and an-Nās (sura 114) should be written on a piece of paper and attached around the neck of the baby as an amulet against evil and harm.


CIRCUMCISION

The circumcision (khatn or khitan, or in many Islamic countries simply sunna) of a male child is an obligation on every Muslim before the child reaches puberty. If the parents fail to have this rite performed, it is the duty of every adult uncircumcised Muslim to be circumcised. Those who embrace Islam should also perform this rite if they are not ready circumcision is not mentioned in the Qur’an, but it is much emphasized in the Traditions, and the consensus of the ulema is that it is obligatory on all Muslims.
Circumcision should preferably be performed when the baby is only a few days old, or otherwise at any time before his puberty. In many countries it is normally carried out between the ages of three and seven, but it is recommended to perform this rite on the seventh day after the birth of the child. Facilities for circumcision are normally provided at hospitals.
In this rite also it is recommended to invite guests and family friends and arrange food for the poor. It is also recommended to recite the following prayer at the time of the circumcision:
Dua'a 251 According to Imam Jafar bin Muhammad as Sadiq(as) recite the following du-a'a at the time of circumcision.
Allahumma hadhihi sunnatu-ka wa-sunatu nabiy-ka salawatu-ka ‘alay-hi wa-ali-hi- wa- ’ttaba‘u mithali-ka wa-kutubi-ka li-mashi’ ati-ka wa-iradati-ka wa-qada’I-kal-amrin aradta-hu wa-qada’in hatamta-huwa-hukmin anfadhta-hu fa-’rja‘‘ an-hu hurra l-hadidi fi khitani-hi wa-hajamati-hi l-amrin, anta a‘rafu bi-hi min-ni. Allahumma fa-tahhir -hu mina dh-dhunubi wa-zid-ni‘umri-hi wa-’dfi ‘l-afat ‘an badani-hi wa-l-aqja‘a ‘an jisim-hi wa-zid-hu fi l-ghina wa-’dfa‘‘ an-hu l-faqra fa-inna-ka ta‘lamu wa-la na ‘lam.
O God, this is Your practice and the practice of Your Prophet, Your blessings be upon him and his family; obeying Your ideal and Your Books is the result of Your volition, and Your will and judgement you decreed, a rule You executed. So take away from him the pain of the knife in his circumcision and his scarification through a command – You are more knowing of it than I, O God. And cleanse him of sins, prolong his life for me, drive away injury and pain from his body, increase him in wealth, and fend off poverty from him; for You know and we do not.

Alternate Translation
O Allah, this (we do) in compliance with Your command and the traditions of Your prophet, Your blessings be on him and on his children, to obey You and Your prophet to fulfill Your will, intention, and to carry out the rules You have decided to make to be followed unconditionally according to which he has to experience the heat of ir0on in circumcision, and bleeding suitability of which You know better then us. O Allah, cleanse him of sins, let him live a long natural life, protect him from all dangers to his body, and let him never suffer the pangs of hunger and anguish of poverty, because You know and we do not.

He who created pairs of every thing and made for you ships and cattle on which you ride,
So that (when) you sit firm and square on their backs, and remember the bounty of your Lord, and when so seated, you may say: “Glory be to Him who subjected these to us, because we were not able to do so ourselves.

[Allah is He whose help is to be sough against what you describe O my helper. O my affectionate Lord, save me from every anguish.]

Then say 11 times salawat :
9 If the husband is displeased with the wife, she should recite the following verse 165 of al Baarah on some sweat eatables and give it to him to eat. Inshallah soon there will be a positive result.
wa minan naasi may yattakhid’u min doonillaahi andaaday min donillaahi andaaday yuh’ibboonahum kah’ubbillaah wallad’eena aamanooo ashaddu h’ubbal lillaah wa law yaral lad’eena z’alamooo id’ yarawnal a’d’aaba annal quwwata lillaahi jamee-a’w wa annaallaaha shadeedul a’d’aab
And yet there are some among men who take for themselves objects of worship besides Allah whom they love as they love Allah; but the believers are stronger in love for Allah. And if those who are unjust could only see when they see the punishment, that to Allah belongs all powers, and verily Allah is severe in punishment.

10 According to Bihar ul Anwar, if husband is taking interest in another woman, gambling and drinking etcetera, the wife should recite a 2 rak-at salat and in each rak-at after reciting surah al Fatihah, recite :
i) Verse 7 of al Mumtahinah
wa allafa bayna quloobihim law anfaqta maa fil arz”i jamee-a’m maaa allafta baynaquloobihim wa laa kinnallaaha allafa baynahum innahoo a’zeezun h’akeem a’sallaahu ay yaj-a’la baynakum wa baynallad’eena a’adaytum minhum mawaddah wallaahu qadeer wallaahu ghafoorur rah’eem
He has put affection between their hearts. Had you spent all that is in the earth you could not have put affection between their hearts, but Allah put affection between them; verily He is mighty, wise. It may be that Allah will create friendship between you and those whom you hold as enemies. Allah is all-powerful. Allah is oft-forgiving, ever-merciful.

ii) Say 70 times :
allaahumma s’alli a’laa muh’ammadin wa aali muh’ammadin wa aali muh’ammadin bi-a’dadi man s’alli a’layhi
O Allah, send blessings on Muhammad and on the progency of Muhammad, as many as those who beseech You to send blessings on him.

iii) Then recite the following dua’a 27 times:
allaahumma layyin qalba (mention husband’s name) kamma layyantal h’adeeda lidaawooda a’layhis salaamu wa sakhkhir lee kamaa sakhkhartar reeh’a lisulaymaanabni daawooda a’layhimas salaamu wa allif baynanaa kamaa allafta bayna muh’ammadin s’allallaahu a’layhi wa aalihee wa sallama wa khadeejahta wa a’liyyin a’layhis salamu wa fat’imataz zahraa-i s’alawaatullaahi a’layhaa yaa arh’amar raah’imeen.
O my Allah, let (mention husband’s name) heart grow soft and gentle just as You melt the iron for Dawud, peace be on him, and make him mild and yielding to me just as You made the winds tractable and submissive to Sulayman son of Dawud, peace be on both of them, and put love between Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be on him and on his children) and Khadijah (blessings of Allah be on her), and between Ali (peace be on him) and Fatimah Zahra, blessings of Allah be on her, O the most beneficent.

From Book Tohfatul Hashmiya
Love and attachment between spouses
Write and bury it in the four corners of the house, on four pieces of paper for reconciliation between spouses:
لَقَدْ جَآئَكُمْ رَسُوْلٌ مِّنْ أَنْفُسِكُمْ عَزِيْزٌ عَلَيْهِ مَا عَنِتُّمْ حَرِيْصٌ عَلَيْكُمْ بِالْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ رَؤُوْفٌ رَّحِيْمٌ.
Laqad jaaa-akum rasoolum min anfusikum a’zeezun a’laihi maa a’nittum h’arees’un a’laikum bil mu-mineena ra-oofunr rah’eem.
Certainly an Apostle has come to you from among yourselves; grievous to him is your falling into distress, excessively solicitous respecting you; to the believers (he is) compassionate, merciful.
In the same way write this verse for buildings by invoking blessings on the Prophet (s.a.w.s.) a hundred times; and say: O the Living, O the Everlasting, O Powerful, I ask You by the sanctity of the Quran that You create love in such and such wife for such and such husband or in such and such husband for such and such wife.[1] For love and attachment between spouses or brother or partners If you intend that you cause reconciliation between two people take a thread from the dress of each of them and entwine the two together and say:
وَ اعْتَصِمُواْ بِحَبْلِ اللهِ جَمِيْعًا وَ لاَ تَفَرَّقُواْ وَ اذْكُرُواْ نِعْمَةَ اللهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ كُنْتُمْ أَعْدَآءً فَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوْبِكُمْ فَأَصْبَحْتُمْ بِنِعْمَتِهِ إِخْوَانًا يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُم مِّنْ ذَكَرٍ وَ أُنْثٰى وَ جَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوْبًا وَ قَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوْا إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِنْدَ اللهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ إِنَّ اللهَ عَلِيْمٌ خَبِيْرٌ.

“And hold fast by the covenant of Allah all together and be not disunited, and remember the favor of Allah on you when you were enemies, then He united your hearts, so by His favor you became brethren.”[2] “O you men! Surely We have created you of a male and a female, and made you tribes and families that you may know each other; surely the most honorable of you with Allah is the one among you most careful (of his duty); surely Allah is Knowing, Aware.”[3]
اَللَّهُمَّ اَلِّفْ بَيْنَ فُلاَنَ بْنَ فُلاَنَةٍ وَ بَيْنَ فُلاَنَةَ بِنْتِ فُلاَنَةٍ، كَمَا اَلَّفْتَ بَيْنَ مُوْسٰی وَ هَارُوْنَ وَ كَمَا اَلَّفْتَ بَيْنَ جَبْرَائِيْلَ وَ مِيْكَائِيْلَ، وَ بَيْنَ خَدِيْجَةَ الْكُبْرٰی وَ مُحَمَّدٍ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّی اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَ سَلَّمَ وَ بَيْنَ فَاطِمَةَ الزَّهْرَاءِ وَ عَلِىٍّ الْمُرْتَضٰی عَلَيْهِمَا السَّلاَمُ. اَللَّهُمَّ اَلِّفْ بَيْنَ فُلاَنَ بْنَ فُلاَنَةٍ وَ فُلاَنَةَ بِنْتِ فُلاَنَةٍ مَثَلاً كَلِمَةً طَيِّبَةً كَشَجَرَةٍ طَيِّبَةٍ اَصْلُهَا ثَابِتٌ وَ فَرْعُهَا فِیْ السَّمَآءِ. تُوْتِیْ اُكُلَهَا كُلَّ حِيْنٍ بِاِذْنِ رَبِّهَا، وَ يَضْرِبُ اللهُ اْلاَمْثَالَ لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَذَكَّرُوْنَ.
Allaahumma allif baina fulaanabna fulaanatinw wa baina fulaanata binti fulaanatin, kamaa allafta baina moosaa wa haaroona wa kamaa allafta baina Jabra-eela wa meekaa-eela.

Allaahumma allif baina fulaanabna fulaanatinw wa fulaanata binti fulaanah. “Mathalan kalimatan t’ayyibatan kashajaratin t’ayyibatin as’luhaa thaabitunw wa far-u’haa fis samaa-a. Tu-tee ukulahaa kulla h’eenim bi-idhni rabbihaa wa yaz”ribullaahul amthaala linnaasi la-a’llahum yatadhakkaroon.”
O Allah, create love between so and so son of so and so and so and so daughter of so and so, in the same way as You created love between Musa and Harun and as you created love between Jibraeel and Mikaeel (a.s.) and between Khadijatul Kubra and Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and his progeny and peace be upon them and between Fatima az-Zahra and Ali al-Murtada (peace be on the two of them). O Allah, create love between so and so son of so and so and so and so daughter of so and so. “Have you not considered how Allah sets forth a parable of a good word (being) like a good tree, whose root is firm and whose branches are in heaven, yielding its fruit in every season by the permission of its Lord. And Allah sets forth parables for men that they may be mindful.[4]

When you are reciting them, for each recitation make one knot in the threads till there are seven knots and give it to one of them to carry it. The two of them would be reconciled by the leave of Allah. (It is a proven remedy) quoted from handwritten manuscripts.
For love and attachment
Write on a piece of white silk cloth by pure musk and yellow saffron and April water drops and put it in the pocket of the shirt below the dress: The saying of the Almighty:
يُرِيدُونَ لِيُطْفِؤُوا نُورَ اللَّهِ بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَاللَّهُ…نَصْرٌ مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَفَتْحٌ قَرِيبٌ
“They desire to put out the light of Allah with their mouths”… till “and a victory near.”[5]
These verses are for acceptance, awe, obedience and help on the enemies. One who wears this shirt will overawe all those he meets.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. O Allah You are the powerful the great. And I am Your weak and debased servant. There is no might and power except by You. O Allah, give in my control so and so like you gave the control of the sea to Musa Ibne Imran and make his heart soft like You softened iron for Dawood, peace be upon him. Then indeed he will not speak except by Your leave. His forelocks are in Your control and his heart is in Your hands. You turn it as You like. Indeed You are powerful over everything.[6]

For Love
Allamah Naraqi (r.a.) says in Al-Khazain: For clear benefit for love, consideration of the kings and rulers, write it on the first Thursday of the month:
“God is the greatest”, seven times, and “there is no power and strength except by Allah, the Exalted and the Mighty”, seven times, and. Then he should fasten it to himself.
على هح ا د 1412
Then he will obey you and not disobey till it remains fastened on you, and you will not fear snakes, scorpions and beasts and all the creatures created by Allah. It is also one of the proven secrets of the veterans of this blessed art.[7]

It is as follows:
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ، يَا مَنْ وَضَعَ نَيْرِ الْمَذَلَّةِ عَلٰی رِقَابِ الْمُلُوْكِ الْجَبَابِرَةِ فَهُمْ مِنْ سَطْوَتِهِ خَائِفُوْنَ، يَا مَنْ تَعَزَّزَ بِالْعِزَّةِ وَ الْعَظَمَةِ فَجَمِيْعُ خَلْقِهِ مِنْ خَيْفَتِهِ وَ جِلُوْنَ، وَ يَا مَنْ يَحْشُرُ الْعِظَامَ الدَّارِ سَاتِ وَهِیَ رَمِيْم يَوْمَ يُبْعَثُوْنَ، يَا مَنْ اَعَزَّ اَولِيَآئَهُ بِطَاعَتِهِ فَهُمْ مِنَ الْفَزَعِ يَوْمَئِذٍ قَالَ رَجُلاَنِ مِنَ الَّذِيْنَ يَخَافُوْنَ اَنْعَمَ اللهُ عَلَيْهِمَا ادْخُلُوْا عَلَيْهِمُ الْبَابَ، فَاِذَا دَخَلْتُمُوْةُ فَاِنَّكُمْ غٰلِبُوْنَ، وَ عَلَی اللهِ فَتَوَكَّلُوْآ اِنْ كنْتُمْ مُّؤْمِنِيْنَ يَا رَبَّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. O One Who puts the iron collars of humiliation around the necks of the tyrant rulers and they are afraid of the power of Allah. O One Who is magnificent by His honor and greatness and all the creatures are trembling of his fear. O One Who enlivens the decayed and powdered bones on the day they would be raised. O One Who exalts the status of His friends by His obedience, then they are safe of the terror if the judgment day. Two men of those who feared, upon both of whom Allah had bestowed a favor, said: “Enter upon them by the gate, for when you have entered it you shall surely be victorious, and on Allah should you rely if you are believers.”[1] O Lord of the worlds.

Sahifa Sajjadia Dua for Parents
Greater Sin : Āq al-Walidayn (Disobedience to parents)

Duas for Deceased (Marhoom) Parents
Imām Muhammad ibn ‘Alī al-Baqir (A.S.) said: "A man could be obedient to his parents during their lifetime, then they die and he does not repay their debts or ask Allāh to forgive them, so Allāh records him down as being insolent. Or, he could have been insolent to them during their lifetime and not obedient, but after their death he repays their debts and seeks forgiveness from Allāh for them, Allāh records him down as obedient.’[Reference: al-Kafi, v. 2, p. 163, no. 21 ]

Allah (S.W.T.) emphasizes the worth and importance of parents at various places in the Holy Qur’an. It is enough for the wise person to realize this when he observes that the obedience of parents is mentioned side by side with the worship of Allah. It is also authentically mentioned that if your parents are not pleased with you all your worship and good deeds are gone waste, they don’t have any value. And it is not limited for the living parents only but even if they are dead you must remember them by praying for them, attributing some good deeds to them, and rectifying their faults (if any) in a proper way. Perhaps at the time of departure from the world the parents were not pleased at heart with their children, but if the children give due attention to their parents’ well-being in the Hereafter by some good deeds, they become pleased to them.

The world that is five feet under the earth is certainly a dreadful place for the sinners. Although we should consider that all are pious and righteous but one never knows in what condition there the diseased is. Perhaps they are enjoying the fruits of their good deeds and perhaps they are in trouble because of some lapse during their lifetime. So if we perform any good deed on their behalf or offer a Namaaz for them they surely are benefited by it, and it is said that our 2 rak’at Namaaz for the Marhoom is better for them then the riches of the whole world. If they are not in any trouble there then the bounties are increased for them and if they are in any tribulation then their pain is lessened or wiped off. Moresover, the performer of good deed is also to be rewarded.

Here below are stated some A’amaal for the benefit of diseased parents, although they are said to benefit them but the performer of these A’amaal are also nicely rewarded. Especially on every Friday-night and on Friday children of the Marhoom should pray for their parents and give charity on their behalf.

Reciting Surah-e-Yaaseen is very beneficial for the Marhoom. He/she is tremendously rewarded for it.
If one recites Surah-e-Mulk and/or 7 times Surah-e-Qadr by the side of Marhoom’s grave, God-forbid if any punishment is being implemented therein, it is instantly ceased.
Pray 2 rak’at Namaaz between Maghrib and Ishaa with Niyyat of Maghfirat-e-Waalidayn.
In the first rak’at after Al-Hamd recite 10 times
رَبِّ اغْفِرْلى وَ لِوالِدَىَّ وَ لِلْمُؤْمِنينَ يَوْمَ يَقُومُ الْحِسابُ
Rabbigh Firlee Waliwaalidayya Walil Mu’mineena Yawma Yaqoomul Hisaab.
14:41 Grant Thy forgiveness unto me, and my parents, and all the believers, on the Day on which the [last] reckoning will come to pass!"
And in the second rak’at after Al-Hamd recite 10 times
رَبِّ اغْفِرْلى وَ لِوالِدَىَّ وَ لِمَنْ دَخَلَ بَيْتِىَ مُؤْمِناً وَ لِلْمُؤْمِنينَ وَ الْمُؤْمِناتِ
Rabbigh Firlee Waliwaalidayya WalimanDakhala Baytiya Mu’minan Walil Mu’mineena Wal Mu’minaat.
71:28 O my Sustainer! Grant Thy forgiveness unto me and unto my parents, and unto everyone who enters my house as a believer, and unto all believing men and believing women [of later times
Then complete the Namaaz as usual.
Then go into Sajdah and recite 10 times
رَبِّ ارْحَمْهُما كَما رَبَّيانى صَغيراً
—Rabbir Hamhuma Kamaa Rabbayaani Swagheera.
17:24 "O my Sustainer! Bestow Thy grace upon them, even as they cherished and reared me when I was a child!"

5. Some Tasbeeh of Salawaat and Istighfaar should be offered on behalf of Marhoomeen every now and then.

6. Pray 2 rak’at Namaaz for the benefit of Marhoom, in the first rak’at after Al-Hamd recite Surah-e-Qadr and in the second recite Surah-e-Kawsar.

7. 2 rak’at, in the first rak’at after Al-Hamd recite once Aayatul Kursee and Surah-e-Ikhalaas 2 times and in the second rak’at after Al-Hamd recite Surah-e- Takaasur 10 times. This also carries a great reward for Marhoom and the reciter also.

8. If at all the son or a daughter did not fulfill the rights of their parent during their lifetime, then they should pray this Namaaz. InshaaAllaah the Marhoom parents shall be pleased with them: Time: on the night between Wednesday and Thursday. In between Maghrib and Ishaa. Niyyat: Fulfillment of the rights of my parent(s). Namaaz; 2 rak’at. In each rak’at after Al-Hamd recite 5 times Aayatul Kursee, 5 times Surah-e-Ikhlaas, 5 times Surah-e-Kaafiroon, 5 times Surah-e-Falak, and 5 times Surah-e-Naas. After you finish praying the Namaaz in this way recite 15 times Astaghfirullaaha Wa Atoobu Ilayh. Dedicate the Sawaab of this A’amaal to the Marhoom parent and you shall get the reward of fulfilling their rights.

9. If at all, you suspect that there were some wrong transactions committed by your parents so you would naturally wish that they should not be punished for that. Therefore its remedy is that first you should try to rectify if possible, try to make the wronged people be pleased with your parents by recompensing some thing that they would appreciate, and then observe this prayer on behalf of your parents: Pray 4 rak’ar Namaaz in sets if 2 rak’at each. In the 1st rak’at after Al-Hamd ecite Surah-e- Ikhlaas 25 times, in the 2nd rak’at 50 times, in the3 rak’at 75 times and in the 4 th rak’at 100 times. After Namaaz recite this Duaa:
Allaahumma Swalli Ala Muhammadin Wa Aali Muhammad,
