Chapter 7



Recommended Acts[311]

1. Recite Surat al-Inshiqāq after Salāt in the 9th month. When labour pains start, recite this, and if it is not possible to recite it with your tongue, recite it in your head.

2. Drink saffron syrup during labour to ease the pain (not before as it may lead to miscarriage).

3. At the time a woman thinks labour pains are going to begin, take a warm (not hot) shower.

4. At the time of labour, have pleasant smelling things around you and breath with your mouth open.

5. Do not eat large quantities of food, but eat good quality and high energy food, and stay away from foods that cause constipation.

6. Recite the recommended Du‘ās for delivery.[312]

7. Ibn ‘Abbās has related that to write the names of the AShāb al-Kahf (Companions of the Cave) down and tying these names around the left thigh of a woman going through a difficult labour is recommended.[313]

Their names are:

ãßÓáãíäÇ ãáíÎÇ ãßÓíäÇ ãÑØæÓ íæÇäÓ

ÇÑíØÇäÓ ÇæäæÓ ßíÏ ÓØØíæÓ ÞØãíÑ

In another tradition, it is narrated that their names are:

ãßÓßãíäÇ ÊãáíÎÇ ÑØíæäÓ íäÈæäÓ


8. Do not wear nylon, as this prevents sunrays reaching the body, and therefore a lack of Vitamin B and a more difficult delivery.

9. One of the reasons of difficult labour for many women is fear and lack of preparation. Therefore, it is recommended that you prepare in advance for labour, mentally and physically. Reading and becoming familiar with what will occur helps tremendously in reducing fear.

10. Recommended exercises also help in reducing labour pains.[314]
