Did Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) advise Sayyidah Fatimah (radiyallahu ‘anha) to recite Surah Falaq, Surah Nas and Ayatul Kursi before labour?
I have not come across this narration in any Hadith source. ‘Allamah Sakhawi (rahimahullah) was asked regarding actions for easy labour. He too did not mention this.
(Al Ajwibatul Mardiyyah, vol. 1 pg. 383 and vol. 3 pg. 986-988)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
