Q715: What should I pray for a healthy child?

Question

salaam,

I was given the devastating news in my last pregnancy that my baby had a high chance of being Down syndrome but at 17 weeks it was revealed in the scan baby had died.

I believe this was from Allah and he knew this would be unbearable for me to cope with.

I am now Alhamdulillah expecting again but am unsure whether I should have the test done again or leave it in Allah’s hands and just pray my baby will be healthy.

Could you please advise me?

A) What to pray during pregnancy to ensure you have a healthy child.

B) Should I get tested for downs syndrome?

w.salam

p.s please pray for me, Allah will help me as i am very frightened

Answer

Wa alaykum as Salaam warahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

Sister! Don’t be so scared. Have your test done. Insha’Allah it will come out clear and put your mind to rest.

During pregnancy read Surah Maryam constantly, every day if possible, and then make dua.

May Allah make everything easy for you and bless you with pious offspring.
