Similarly, with those who have children, or even nieces and nephews, treat them with love and mercy. Sayyidina Rasulullah (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) was never shy in displaying affection towards his grandchildren in public, to the extent that when they would run up to him while he was giving a khutbah, he would hug them and kiss them. Children are the coolness to our eyes, and not just little people whom we vent our stresses out on, despite how fun it can be.😉 The only way to relieve your stress when you’re with a child is to do something that will make them give you that cute lil giggle. 🙂 Like parents are easily pleased a little kind gesture from their child, children also just want some innocent attention. Have we become so fast-paced in our lives, that we’re too busy to be the positive impact in the youth of this ummah?
“Fear Allah and treat your children [small or grown] fairly (with equal justice).” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
