Hadith Explanation

Jannah through Sisters

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The man who takes care of three daughters or three sisters, educates them and teaches them good manners and behaves kindly towards them, till they become independent of his care by the will of Allah, is entitled by Allah to enter Jannah.” Thereupon a person submitted: “If there be only two daughters or two sisters?” The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) affirmed: “The same reward will be given for similar conduct towards two daughters or two sisters.” [Mishkat]

Ibn Abbas (radi Allahu anhu) observed: “Had the people enquired about the reward for rearing one girl in this manner, the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) would have given the same glad tidings.” [Mishkat]

Care for daughters, and if your father is deceased or unable, your sisters, with gratitude to Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) for giving you an extra way in which to earn Jannah. They are not a burden but a blessing from Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) through whom you may achieve distinction and reward.
