Ticket No.17 – Looking After One’s Daughters or Sisters

The Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Whoever has three daughters or three sisters, cares for them and disciplines them, he and I shall be like this is in Paradise” – as he was putting his index and middle fingers together.”

[Abu Ya'la ~ Classed as Sahih by Sh Al-Albaani]

Commentary:

This hadith shows the virtue and importance of caring for ones daughters and sisters whereby the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) mentioned that whoever has three daughters or three sisters and cares for them and disciplines them, they will be in paradise with the companionship of the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam). The hadith states three sisters or three daughters but this also applies to those who have more or less than three as clarified in other authentic narrations of this hadith. Islam emphasises on the importance of caring for our daughters and sisters due to their fragileness and sensitivity, so they require to be protected by their fathers and brothers so that no harm may be done to them.

And Allah Knows Best!
