The Best Dua For Pregnancy 👼

إِذْ قَالَتِ امْرَأَتُ عِمْرَانَ رَبِّ إِنِّي نَذَرْتُ لَكَ مَا فِي بَطْنِي مُحَرَّرًا فَتَقَبَّلْ مِنِّي ۖ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ

Transliteration: Iz qaala-timra-'atu 'Imraana Rabbi 'innee nazar-tu laka maa fee batnee muharrar-an fata-qab-bal minnee 'innaka Anta as-Samee-'ul-'Aleem.

Translation: "Behold! The wife of 'Imran said: "O my Lord! I do dedicate to You what is in my womb for Your special service, so accept this of me, for You hear and know all things."

This dua is from Surah Al-Imran and was the dua made by the mother of Maryam (AS) when she was pregnant. She dedicated her child to the cause of Allah and as a result showed her devotion to her faith and Lord.

3. Dua for patience

رَبَّنَا لَا تُؤَاخِذْنَا إِن نَّسِينَا أَوْ أَخْطَأْنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْنَا إِصْرًا كَمَا حَمَلْتَهُ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تُحَمِّلْنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِ ۖ وَاعْفُ عَنَّا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَا ۚ أَنتَ مَوْلَانَا فَانصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ

Transliteration: Rabbana la tu'akhidhna in nasina aw akhta'na. Rabbana wa la tahmil alayna isran kama hamaltahu 'ala alladhina min qablina. Rabbana wa la tuhammilna ma la taqata lana bih. Wa'fu anna, waghfir lana warhamna, anta mawlana fansurna 'ala alqawmi alkafireen

Translation: "Our Lord, do not take us to task if we forget or make a mistake. Our Lord, do not burden us as You have burdened those before us. Our Lord, do not impose upon us that which we do not have the strength to bear. Pardon us, forgive us, have mercy on us. You are our protector, so help us against the disbelieving people."

This dua is from Surah Al-Baqarah and marks one of the final verses of the chapter. In this prayer, we ask Allah for forgiveness and protection from any burden. This can help any expectant mother to feel calmer as she has placed her hopes with her Lord.

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ زَوَالِ نِعْمَتِكَ، وَتَحَوُّلِ عَافِيَتِكَ، وَفُجَاءَةِ نِقْمَتِكَ، وَجَمِيعِ سَخَطِكَ

Translation: "O Allah, I seek refuge in You from the declining of Your blessings, the removal of your safety, the sudden onset of Your punishment, and from all that displeases You."

This dua recorded in Mishkat al-Masabih asks for protection from Allah's displeasure and granting wellbeing, including good health, which is particularly of importance for any pregnant woman.
