Hadith Regarding offspring in the Womb

Narrated Anas bin Malik (Radi-Allahu ‘anhu):

The Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, “Allah has appointed an
angel in the womb, and the angel says, ‘O Lord! A drop of discharge (i.e.
of semen), O Lord! a clot, O Lord! a piece of flesh.’ And then, if Allah
wishes to complete the child’s creation, the angel will say. ‘O Lord! A
male or a female? O Lord! wretched or blessed (in religion)? What will his
livelihood be? What will his age be?’ The angel writes all this while the
child is in the womb of its mother.”

Bukhari Vol. 4 : No. 550

…Abide by the truth even though your mind deserts you.
