The Prophet’s Love and Kindness for Children

 

The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was very kind to children and loved them.

Whenever the children came near to him he would pick them up in his arms and fondle them with great love.

 

Sometimes he would bring out his tongue before the child and the child would become cheerful and laugh.

 

If he was lying down, he would make a child sit on the soles of his feet or on his chest.

 

If several children were there, he would make them fall in a row and would himself sit stretching out his arms and would say, “Run up to me, who touches me first, will get a prize. “The children would come running to him. Some would fall on his chest, some would fall on his belly. He would embrace them and kiss them. [Khasail-I-Nabawi]

When the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) Passed by Children

 

Whenever the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) passed by children, he would salute them, put his hands on their heads and pick up the small ones in his arms.

 

On seeing a mother loving her baby, he would be deeply affected.

 

When discussing mother’s love he would say, “Whomsoever ALLAH favors with children and he loves them as also fulfils his obligations towards them, then he would remain safe from the hell fire.

 

If while returning from a journey, the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) met children on the way, he would pick them up affectionately and get them seated before or behind himself on his mount.

 

Children also loved him much. No sooner than they saw him, they would run up to him. He would pick up each one of them, kiss him and give him something like dates or fresh fruit or some other nice thing to eat. If the baby of a woman saying prayer in his leadership started crying he would shorten the prayer in order to relieve the mother from her distraction. [Khasail-e-Nabawi]
