Future Dua

Student of Al Huda
I was extremely touched when Maryam (as) mother made dua:
“My Lord, indeed I have pledged to You what is in my womb, consecrated [for Your service], so accept this from me. Indeed, You are the Hearing, the Knowing.” [Ale Imran:35]
 What mother makes this kind of dua while still pregnant? She thought she was to give birth to a son but when she bore a girl she said:
But when she delivered her, she said, “My Lord, I have delivered a female.” And Allāh was most knowing of what she delivered, “And the male is not like the female. And I have named her Mary, and I seek refuge for her in You and [for] her descendants from Satan, the expelled [from the mercy of Allāh].” [Ale Imran:36]
Subhanallah! The story was so beautiful, she was worried that she gave birth to a girl but Allah says He knows what she gave birth to. In the next verse Allah says He accepted her with a good acceptance. I could not help but feel jealous that she was accepted like this, it was beautiful to read the story and it taught me we should be making dua for the future also.
