Wa Alaikum al-salam

Thanks for your question

Its great that as parent you have such concerns about your children.

There are some prayers and Quranic verses and surahs to have good and pious children, we mention some of them here:

  1. Imam Sajjad a.s in Sahifa Sajjadiyya has a supplication and Dua just for his children; Dua number 25 of Sahifa Sajjadiyya; this is a thorough supplication that covers success in both material and spiritual life.
  2. reading surah an-Nur; It is narrated from Imam al-Sadiq (a), “guard your property and sexual desire by recitation Sura al-Nur and protect your women with this sura, because whoever recites this sura every day or every night, none of his households would commit adultery…
  3. reading 2:128 a lot:

ربَّنا وَ اجْعَلْنا مُسْلِمَیْنِ لَکَ وَ مِنْ ذُرِّیَّتِنا أُمَّهً مُسْلِمَهً لَکَ وَ أَرِنا مَناسِکَنا وَ تُبْ عَلَیْنا إِنَّکَ أَنْتَ التَّوَّابُ الرَّحیم

‘Our Lord, make us submissive to You, and [raise] from our progeny a nation submissive to You, and show us our rites [of worship], and turn to us clemently. Indeed You are the All-clement, the All-merciful.’

  1. reading Surah Maryam 4 times
  2. reading 46:15 “وَأَصْلِحْ لِی فِی ذُرِّیَّتِی إِنِّی تُبْتُ إِلَیْکَ وَإِنِّی مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِینَ “

…. and invest my descendants with righteousness. Indeed I have turned to you in penitence, and I am one of the Muslims.’


May Allah swt guide all of us and our children to the right path
