Did Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) advise Fatimah (radiyallahu ‘anha) to recite some Surahs before labour?

Question

Did Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) advise Sayyidah Fatimah (radiyallahu ‘anha) to recite Surah Falaq, Surah Nas and Ayatul Kursi before labour?

 

Answer

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.
