    Title: Dua for Children

    Question: Please pray that Allah (SWT) give children to me and to my brother. I haven’t seen my case anywhere where 2 brothers are married (1 since 5 years and 2nd since 2 years) and both of them do not have a single kid. Moreover, we have our ancient tradition, elder people used to go to Ismael Qadri (RA) shrine. As I denied doing same, people are telling your wife will conceive only when you visit Dargah. Please pray for me and for my brother, also suggest any Amal for the same.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 81/57/D=1434) It is shirk to go to mazar and ask them for child. It is also shirk to have the belief that until you do not go to a mazar your wife shall not conceive. The Granter, Forbidder, Giver of benefit is only Allah. He gives baby boy whom He wishes and gives baby girl whom He wishes, and gives both boy and girl whom He wishes and gives neither boy nor girl whom He wishes, it is upon Him. However, it is lawful to do treatment, supplicate Allah. You should supplicate Allah and we also shall pray for you. You may also adopt the method written in Bahishti Zewar Vol 9 about aqimah (infertility).
