    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 448/358/B=03/1435) Yes, it is lawful to supplicate Allah for the birth of a child. The supplication of Hadhrat Sayyidina Zakariya (على نبينا وعليه الصلاة والسلام) is mentioned in the holy Quran for the same purpose. رَبِّ لَا تَذَرْنِي فَرْداً وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ الْوَارِثِينَ [الأنبياء : 89] If the husband and wife recite this blessed dua with durood before and after extensively on daily basis, then they shall have a son, in-shaAllah. May Allah bless you a pious son, Amen!
