Obey Allah, and obey the messenger and those of you who are in authority; and if you have a dispute concerning any matter, refer it to Allah and the messenger if you are (in truth) believers in Allah and the Last Day. That is best for you in this life and in the hereafter” Q4 verse 59 1 II) The Concept of Having Child in Islam One should bear in mind that, to be blessed with a child is a favor from Allah, SWT, which He bestows to whom He wills.

He creates whatever He pleases. He gives daughters to whom He pleases and gives sons to whom He pleases.
