Nasihah (Advice): Dua at the time of conjugal relations

Sayyiduna Ibn Abbaas Radhiyallahu Anhu reports that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: “If anyone of you, on having conjugal relations with his wife, says: “(O Allah!) Protect me from Shaitaan, and prevent Shaitaan from (harming) the offspring you are going to give me.” and if it happens that a child is conceived, Shaitaan will neither harm it nor be given power over it.” (Bukhari)

Question and Answer:

Q. What is the procedure of burying a still born child? Is Ghusal and Janaazah Salaah necessary for a still born child? Should it be given a name?

A. A still born child should be washed, enshrouded in a piece of cloth and buried. There is no Janaazah Salaah for a still born child. A still born child should also be given a name. (Ahsanul Fataawa 4/216)
