    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 495/475/N=1433) (1) Ghusl shall not be fardh in any case mentioned above. (هكذا يستفاد من كتب الفقه والفتاوى) (2) For conceiving you can do this practice: take forty cloves and recite the following ayah on each clove seven times: أَوْ كَظُلُمَاتٍ فِي بَحْرٍ لُّجِّيٍّ يَغْشَاهُ مَوْجٌ مِّن فَوْقِهِ مَوْجٌ مِّن فَوْقِهِ سَحَابٌ ظُلُمَاتٌ بَعْضُهَا فَوْقَ بَعْضٍ إِذَا أَخْرَجَ يَدَهُ لَمْ يَكَدْ يَرَاهَا وَمَن لَّمْ يَجْعَلِ اللَّهُ لَهُ نُوراً فَمَا لَهُ مِن نُّورٍ [النور : 40] And the day the woman becomes tahir (clean) from her menstruating period she should eat 1-1 clove for forty days without a gap, and she should not drink water at all after eating the clove, and during this period the husband and wife should have intercourse as well, they shall have child, in-shaAllah. Also the husband and wife should keep on reciting the following dua extensively: رَبِّ لَا تَذَرْنِي فَرْداً وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ الْوَارِثِينَ [الأنبياء : 89]
