Mother lost a child due to miscarriage


May Allah grant you his immense mercy, elevate your ranks and make you amongst the Saliheen! Ameen.

May Allah grant you ease in this difficult time, and reward you for your patience. May He compensate your loss with Jannah in the Akhirah without any hisaab.!

The loss of a child is truly a test of patience for everyone who is affected. Any tragedy which befalls a believer is a sign of Allah, strengthening that person in imaan and patience. Allah sends trials upon those whom he loves the most, as these trials are meant to lead that believer closer to Him. Having patience and forbearance during these trials leads the believer and beloved of Allah to the highest of the Heavens, insha'Allah.

The following are sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) regarding the loss of a child:
It comes in a Hadith in the Musnad of Abd' ibn Humayd, Muadh (ra), narrates from the Prophet (peace be upon him) that 'Muslims do not lose three children except that Allah will cause the two parents to enter Paradise through the favor of His mercy towards them.' They said, 'What about two, Oh Messenger of Allah' He said, 'Two also.' They said, 'And one?" He said, 'Even the miscarried child will indeed drag its mother with its umbilical cord to Paradise."
The Prophet said, "The miscarried child will pester its glorious and mighty Lord for His entering its two parents into the Fire until it is told, 'O miscarried child that pesters its Lord! Enter your father and mother into Paradise.' Then it will drag them with its umbilical cord until it makes them enter Paradise." Ibn Majah and Abu Ya'la from 'Ali.
And again, "By the One in Whose hand is my soul, truly the miscarried child will certainly drag its mother with its umbilical cord to Paradise, provided one expects recompense [for SABR]." Ibn Majah and Ahmad from Mu'adh.
And he said: "Your little ones are the larvas of Paradise. They will meet their parents and grab them by their garments or their hands to no end other than that Allah will enter them Paradise." Sahih Muslim.
"I swear that a miscarried child of mine I send forth before me is more beloved to me than [raising] a mounted knight that survives me." Ibn Majah from Abu Hurayra (ra)
Al-Tirmidhi narrated that Abu Sinaan said, "I buried my son Sinaan and Abu Talhah al-Khoolani was sitting at the graveside. When I wanted to go out he took my hand and said, "Shall I not give you some glad tidings, O Abu Sinaan?" I said, "Yes". He said, "Al-Dahhaak ibn "Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Arzab narrated to me from Abu Moosa al-Ashari that the Messenger of Allah SAW said, "When a person's child dies, Allah says to His angels, "you have taken the child of My slave", they say "Yes." He says, "you have taken the apple of his eye". They say, "yes". He says "What did My slave say?" They say, "he praised you and said 'inna lillahi wa inna ilahi raajioon'. Allah says, "build for My slave a house in Paradise and call it the house of praise."

So my Dear sister, do not despair, for Allah knows your pain, He knows your struggle, and He will reward you for your patience. It seems hard in this Dunya, but in the Akhirah it will work in your favor. Allah will compensate your loss with the glad tidings of Jannah, insha'Allah. Take advantage of this opportunity to draw closer to your Lord, and you will see its fruits in both worlds.

May Allah make it easy for you. Ameen

And Allah knows best.
