Time of delivery:

 At the time of delivery a woman should follow the narration that the:Prophet (Muhammad PBUH) has said, “Delivery has such an extensive divine reward which no one can comprehend.”

It has also been narrated from the Prophet (Muhammad PBUH) who said, “Give your wife a few dates as soon as she delivers her child, since Allah ordered Mary to eat dates at the time of delivery. Give her seven dates from Medina or your own town.

Allah said in Glorious Quran: I swear by my Majesty, Grandeur, Nobility and Highness that if a woman eats dates on the day of childbirth, then the child shall be patient (ḥalīm) whether it is a boy or a girl.”

Furthermore, we find this narration from Imam Sadiq (AS) who said: “A woman who dies during delivery will not be accountable for her deeds in this world since she has died with the sorrow of childbirth.

For the easy and safe delivery of a child, the editor of ‘Ṭibbu l-A’immah’ has narrated from Imam Mohammed Baqir (A.S.) that a person approached him and told the Imam that his wife was on the verge of death on account of delivery, the Imam asked him to go back immediately and read the following Dua:

فَأَجَاءَهَا الْمَخَاضُ إِلَىٰ جِذْعِ النَّخْلَةِ قَالَتْ يَا لَيْتَنِي مِتُّ قَبْلَ هَـٰذَا وَكُنتُ نَسْيًا مَّنسِيًّا فَنَادَاهَا مِن تَحْتِهَا أَلَّا تَحْزَنِي قَدْ جَعَلَ رَبُّكِ تَحْتَكِ سَرِيًّا وَهُزِّي إِلَيْكِ بِجِذْعِ النَّخْلَةِ تُسَاقِطْ عَلَيْكِ رُطَبًا جَنِيًّا.

And the throes (of childbirth) compelled her to betake herself to the trunk of a palm tree. She said: Oh, would that I had died before this, and had been a thing quite forgotten! Then (the child) called out to her from beneath her: Grieve not, surely your Lord has made a stream to flow beneath you; And shake towards you the trunk of the palm tree, it will drop on you fresh ripe dates.

And say loudly:

وَاللَّـهُ أَخْرَجَكُم مِّن بُطُونِ أُمَّهَاتِكُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ شَيْئًا وَجَعَلَ لَكُمُ السَّمْعَ وَالْأَبْصَارَ وَالْأَفْئِدَةَ ۙ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ.

And Allah has brought you forth from the wombs of your mothers-you did not know anything-and He gave you hearing and sight and hearts that you may give thanks.

کَذالِکَ اَخرُجَ أیُّهَا الطَّلقُ اُخرُج بِإِذنِ الله.

Let the pains of birth be removed in the similar way, be removed by permission of Allah.

Whenever he would recite this, his wife would be relieved.
