Can you please advise on a dua to conceive a child. We have been childless for many years and have prayed a lot for Allah to bless us with a child.
Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh
Thank you for your question. May Allāh bless you with pious children, happiness, prosperity and success.
The below mentioned supplications could be constantly recited for the purpose of having children. You are encouraged to offer salāt al ḥājah (prayer for need) and make sincere du’ā in any language and words you deem appropriate.
“Our Lord, give us good in this world and good in the Hereafter, and save us from the punishment of Fire.” (2:201)
“My Lord, I am in need of whatever good you send down to me.” (28:24)
“Our Lord, Give us, from our spouses and our children, comfort of eyes, and make us heads of the God-fearing.” (25:74)
“O my Lord, bless me with a righteous son.” (37:100)
“My Lord, do not leave me alone and You are the best of inheritors.” (21:89)
“O my Lord, grant me from Your own (power) a goodly progeny. Verily, You are the One who listens to the prayer.” (3:38)
And Allah knows best.
