Kissing Ones Children

Aishah (radi Allahu anha) reported that some bedouins came to the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and asked, “Do you kiss your children?” He replied, “Yes” They then said: “By Allah, we do not kiss them” He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) then replied, “I cannot help you if Allah has snatched kindness from your hearts.”

[Sahih al-Bukhari and Muslim]


As with the previous hadith (HaD-635) we learn that kissing our children is permissible and is an act of kindness and affection. Showing kindness and affection to children is a sign of that mercy and compassion with which Allah endows mankind.

And Allah Knows Best!
