Intention upon Confirmation of Pregnancy
“My Lord, indeed I have pledged to You what is in my womb,
consecrated [for Your service], so accept this from me. Indeed, You are
the Hearing, the Knowing.”
“And I have named her Mary, and I seek refuge for her in You and [for]
her descendants from Satan, the expelled [from the mercy of Allah].”
“So her Lord accepted her with good acceptance and caused her to
grow in a good manner and put her in the care of Zechariah.”

General Advise from Savants and Saints
 Perform one’s regular adhkâr (invocations) and awrâd (litanies) every day without fail and pray as many prayers in
congregation with one’s spouse.
 Read Al-Qur’ân and the Dala’il al-Khayrat as much as possible. At the very least, have the audio of your favourite Qari
(reciter) playing loud enough for the baby in the womb to listen to.
 Recite abundantly ṣalawât ‘ala-n Nabi (salutations on the Prophet ). Special emphasis on Ṣalât ‘Aisha, Ṣalât Al-Tunjînâ
and “As-salâmu ‘alaikum ayyuha-n Nabî wa raḥmatu-Llâhi wa barakâtuhu”.
 When too tired to actively engage in ‘ibâda (worship), look at pictures of the blessed Ka’ba, other holy sites and
sacred relics, and visit the Awliya – those who are treading above the earth and resting beneath.
 Avoid listening to ḥarâm music and watching obscene television programmes.

Supplication during Pregnancy
by the Spiritual Pole of the Age, Al-Habib ‘Abdu-l Qadir al-Saqqaf 
O Allah, bless our liege-lord Muhammad and the family of our liege-lord Muhammad. O Allah, protect my baby for as long
as it is in my womb, remove from it all ailments, along with the nation of Your Prophet and Messenger, our liege-lord
Muhammad, Allah bless him and his family, and give them peace. You are the Source of all Healing; there is no cure but
from You; [so bestow] a cure that is quick and leaves no illness behind. O Allah, mould the baby in my womb with a
beautiful form and make firm his heart to faith in You and Your Messenger, Allah bless him and his family, and give them
peace.
O Allah, make my baby’s birth at the appointed time of delivery in ease and safe – in both domains. And accept our
supplications just as You accepted the supplications of Your Prophet and Messenger, our liege-lord Muhammad, Allah
bless him and his family, and give them peace. O Allah, protect this child You brought forth from the world of darkness to
the world of Light, make him righteous, accomplished, intelligent and gentle. O Allah, make the child a witness [to Your
Oneness], blessed [with Your bounties], learned [in beneficial knowledge], and a guardian of Your precious Words and
preserved Book.
O Allah, lengthen the child’s years, strengthen the child’s body, and make the child skilled in recitation of the Qur’an. O
Allah, make the child patient during times of sickness, illnesses, and thirst by the blessing of our liege-lord Muhammad,
Allah bless him and his family, and give them peace, and [by the blessing of] all the Prophets, Messengers, and the Arch
Angels. Verily Allah and His angels whelm in blessings the prophet. O you who believe invoke blessings upon him and give him
greetings of Peace. In the end our claim is that all praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. Amin!
