Raising up Daughters

Aishah (radi Allahu anha) reported: A woman came to me with her two daughters. She asked me (for charity) but she found nothing with me except one date-fruit, so I gave it to her. She accepted it and then divided it between her two daughters and she ate nothing out of that. She then got up and went out. When the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) came in, and I narrated to him the story, he said, “He who is involved (in the responsibility) of (bringing up) daughters, and he is benevolent towards them, they would become protection for him against Hell-fire.”

[Sahih al-Bukhari and Muslim]


This Hadith also tells us about the great merit and reward of kind treatment with daughters.

And Allah Knows Best!
