These Quranic verses should be consolation for us in the presence of divine predestination:
To God belongs the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth. He creates whatever He wills. He grants to whom He wills daughters and grants to whom He wills sons. Or He mingles them, both sons and daughters (granted to whom He wills); and He leaves barren whom He wills. Surely He is All-Knowing, All-Powerful. (Ash-Shura Surah, 42:49, 50)
Therefore, it should be invoked what is beneficial for us. And, this matter should not be disregarded while supplicating.
