Invocation for Having Children in Islam
The quest for offspring is one of the deepest and most natural desires in human life. In Islam, believers are encouraged to seek Allah’s blessings for having children. Invocation for offspring is a common practice among believers, as it reminds them of their reliance on Allah for this precious grace.
1. The Quest for Offspring in Islam
The pursuit of offspring is a legitimate concern in Islam as it is considered a blessing from Allah. Allah says in the Quran: “And Allah grants His favors to whom He wills among His servants.” (Quran, Surah Ash-Shura, 42:19). This verse reminds believers that the blessing of offspring comes from Allah, and they can seek this blessing through invocation.
2. The Power of Invocation for Offspring
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) taught believers the importance of invoking Allah for offspring. He said: “Three supplications are not rejected: the supplication of the parent, the supplication of the fasting person, and the supplication of the oppressed.” (Jami’ at-Tirmidhi). This means that when you implore Allah for offspring, your invocation holds special significance.
