A phenomenon raised by all authentic Hadith books:O brother; the more cohesive the family members are, the stronger their belief is.
“The narration of Imam Al-Bukhari by Abi Hurraira that The Prophet PBUH, may peace be upon him, kissed Al-Hasan the son of Ali while Al-Aqra'a Bin Habes Altaimi was visiting him.
Al-Aqra'a said: I have ten kids and I have never kissed anyone of them, then the Prophet PBUH looked at him and said: Those who are not merciful will not have the mercy (of Allah).”
Those who are not merciful will not have the mercy:The Authentic Qudsi (sacred) Hadith says:
“If you are asking for my mercy then you ought to have mercy on my creation.”Well the most who are worthy of your mercy are your children. I.e. a believer lives for his/her children.
“Omar Bin Abed Al-Aziz –may Allah have mercy on his soul-said:
A righteous woman named Khawla bint Al-Hakim said:
One day the Prophet PBUH went out holding one of his grandchildren saying:
You do wrong things, you save money for having children.”
Pay attention:I assure you once again, the more faithful you become, the more these feelings and affection are felt; the house becomes paradise.
The prophet’s mercy with animals:The Prophet PBUH, peace be upon him, is even going further.
“Those who are not merciful shall not have the mercy.
If you want to have my mercy, have mercy on my creatures.”
See the mother’s mercy with her child!
”The Prophet PBUH was walking with some of his companions, then a mother was petrified that her son may get injured while he was on the street.
So she took him with her.
A man said to the Prophet PBUH:
O messenger of Allah, this mother would not ever throw her kid in hell fire.”
“In another narration: The Prophet PBUH was with his companions, he saw a mother baking bread.
So whenever she put one in al-tanour (an oven like, Arabs used to bake bread in)she kisses her son.
The Prophet PBUH asked: Would this mother throw her kid in fire?
They said: No way.
The Prophet PBUH said: I swear by Who Muhammad's fate in His Hand; Allah is, most certainly, more merciful with His slave than this mother is with her own child.”
“A women named Um Haretha came asking the Prophet PBUH about her son Haretha who was killed with an arrow in the day of Bader (the first battle between Muslims and the infidels that was won by Muslims even though they were outnumbered)
She said: O messenger of Allah; you know how much I love Haretha!
If he is in paradise, then I won't weep for him.
If he is not, then I shall kill myself.
He said: Are you out of your mind? Calm down. Do you think it's one paradise?
They are many paradises and he is in the top of them.“
In some houses msh3er may be extremely cruel:In such case, a child sticks to his friends until late up at night, so when he comes home, boredom is what he feels.
“The Prophet PBUH said:
Nothing is much better to be taught to a son than good moralities.”
This is what the prophet indicated:
”A man used to come to the Prophet PBUH (pbuh) with his son.
The Prophet PBUH asked him: Do you love him?
He said: Yes, I do!
The Prophet PBUH said: May Allah love you as much as He loves him. I.e. to love him in an acceptable way.
The man did not show up for a while.
The Prophet PBUH asked: where is the man (who used to come with his son)?
O messenger of Allah, his son died.
The Prophet PBUH said to the father: Do you like to find your son waiting for you no matter which door of paradise you choose to enter ?
The father asked: O messenger of Allah, is it our (privilege) or only his?
The Prophet PBUH replied: it is yours.”
The slaves that Allah shall never talk, praise, or look at:
“The Prophet PBUH (pbuh) said:
There slaves of Allah, exalted he is, whom He shall never talk to, or praise and raise their rank, or (even) look at.
He was asked: O messenger of Allah; who are they?
He said: Someone who abandoned his parents, and a man who have been honored by (certain)people but he was ungrateful.”
A glad tiding to you, brother in Islam:
”The Prophet PBUH said: if someone has three daughters and was patient with them; feeding them, buying them clothes, they will be protect him from hell fire.”It is such a splendid thing to raise those girls then a young believing man comes to ask for her hand; at that point your mission is over.
“Once Osama bin Zais said:
The Prophet PBUH (pbuh) used to take me and Hasan (his grandchild) and say:
O Allah; I adore them, so (may you "Allah") adore them too.”
The conclusion:All the Hadiths that I have mentioned tell us that a parent's faith is measured by as much as he/she loves his/her kids, and the mercy in his/her heart shows how well he/she is connected to Allah.
