Answer

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Brother in Islaam,

Before engaging in intimacy with your wife, you should recite the following du’aa:

بِاسْمِ اللَّهِ، اللَّهُمَّ جَنِّبْنَا الشَّيْطَانَ، وَجَنِّبِ الشَّيْطَانَ مَا رَزَقْتَنَا[1]

Translation: “(I commence) in the name of Allaah. O Allaah! Keep Shaitaan away from us and from what you bestow upon us (i.e. children).” (Bukhaari 6388)

You may recite the following du’aas beseeching Allaah Ta’aala for children,

رَبِّ هَبْ لِي مِنْ لَدُنْكَ ذُرِّيَّةً طَيِّبَةً إِنَّكَ سَمِيعُ الدُّعَاءِ

Translation: “O my Lord, grant me from Yourself a good offspring. Indeed, You are the Hearer of supplication.” (Surah Aali ‘Imraan v.38)

رَبِّ هَبْ لِي مِنَ الصَّالِحِينَ

Translation: “O my Lord! Grant me a righteous (child)!” (Surah As-Saaffaat v.100)

رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا

Translation: “O our Lord! Bestow upon us from our wives and our offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and make us leaders for the pious.” (Surah Al-Furqaan v.74) 

Also, make intention of attaining chastity through the intimacy and to abstain from all forms of zinaa which includes zinaa of the eyes and thoughts as well.

 

And Allaah Ta’aala Knows Best.

[1] صحيح البخاري (8/ 82)

6388 - حَدَّثَنَا عُثْمَانُ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا جَرِيرٌ، عَنْ مَنْصُورٍ، عَنْ سَالِمٍ، عَنْ كُرَيْبٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا، قَالَ: قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: " لَوْ أَنَّ أَحَدَهُمْ [ص:83] إِذَا أَرَادَ أَنْ يَأْتِيَ أَهْلَهُ قَالَ: بِاسْمِ اللَّهِ، اللَّهُمَّ جَنِّبْنَا الشَّيْطَانَ، وَجَنِّبِ الشَّيْطَانَ مَا رَزَقْتَنَا، فَإِنَّهُ إِنْ يُقَدَّرْ بَيْنَهُمَا وَلَدٌ فِي ذَلِكَ لَمْ يَضُرَّهُ شَيْطَانٌ أَبَدًا "
