Spending On Ones Children

Umm Salamah (radi Allahu anha) reported: I asked the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), “Would I be rewarded for what I spend on Abu Salamah’s sons? For I can’t let them go here and there (to beg people).” The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) replied, “Spend on them and you will be rewarded for what you spend on them.”

[Sahih al-Bukhari and Muslim]


Although parents spend money on their children out of their natural love for them, Allah is so Gracious that He not only rewards them for it, but He gives it in greater proportion than what they spend on other meritorious items.

And Allah Knows Best!
