Question: Please tell me if there is any Dua to recite during pregnancy for a healthy and normal baby. What dua should be recited or what actions should be done during pregnancy for pious offspring?
Answer: In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. As-salāmu 'alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh. A woman in pregnancy is continuously in the state in Ibadah (worship) until she delivers the child. She will be rewarded for all the missed opportunities of Ibadah such as Nafl Salaah, Zikr, e.t.c. You may read the following Du'aa:
رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا
Rabbana Hab lana Min azwajina qurrate a'yunil waj'alna lilmuttaqeene imama
"Oh our Rabb! Make our children the coolness of our eyes and appoint a leader for us from among the pious ones".
And Allah Ta'āla Knows Best
