The positive value-based attitudes of parents towards having children can exert an influence over every aspect of children’s lives and put parents’ attempts on the right track. This study aims to evaluate the act of having children and to explain its spiritual, social, and psychological fruits from the Islamic standpoint. The main question is how does Islam morally evaluate child-bearing and in what spiritual, social, and psychological outcomes can child-bearing result? Using a descriptive analytic method, the present study examines the relevant Islamic and psychological doctrines. Its findings show that child-bearing is sacred and has a variety of spiritual and psychological benefits. Child-bearing may lay the foundations for close families, parents’ happiness, the fulfillment of psychological potentials, an increase in provision, social security and power, and parents’ spiritual transformation.
 
Keywords: Axiology, child-bearing, religious requirements, spiritual fruits, psychological benefits.
