I am a female.It is said that Allah near to the person who fasts during ramadan and his/her prayers will be answered for sure(if allah wishes).I had abortion for almost 5-6 times and no children untill now after 6 years of marriage.Now during ramadan is thier any special prayer/dua special time where i can pray and ask for forgiveness in front of allah if i did something wrong(also to grant a child.It has been like going through hell all this years from my mother-in-law side(also my husband wants to give divorce).
