Affectionate

Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) said, "The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) kissed al-Hasan ibn Ali (his grandson) while al-Aqra ibn Habis was with him. Al-Aqra said, 'I have ten children and have never kissed any of them.' The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) looked at him and said, 'Anyone who does not show mercy will not be shown mercy." [Sahih Bukhari]

Aisha (radi Allahu anha) said, "Some of the Bedouins came to the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and said, 'Do you really kiss your children?' He said, 'Yes.' They said, 'But, by Allah, we do not!' The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, 'There is nothing I can do if Allah has removed mercy from your hearts!'" [Sahih Bukhari]

Emulate the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and be affectionate towards your children.
