Hadith Explanation

Showing Affection to Children

Abu Hurairah narrated: "Al-Aqra bin Habis saw the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) kissing Al-Hasan and Al-Husain. So he said, 'I have ten children and I do not kiss any one of them.' So the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, 'Whoever shows no mercy, will be shown no mercy.'" [Jami At-Tirmidhi - graded sahih]

The feelings of love and affection towards one's small children and kissing them is proof of a person's having the quality of tenderness and mercy in his/her heart. We need to be merciful to others in order for Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) to be merciful to us on the Day of Judgement.
