The sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (saw)

“A dinar you spend in Allah’s way, or to free a slave, or as a charity you give to a needy person, or to support your family, the one yielding the greatest reward is that which you spend on your family.” (Muslim)

“You never spend anything but you will be rewarded for it, even the morsel of food that you lift to your wife’s mouth.” (Muslim)

“When a Muslim spends on his family seeking reward for it from Allah, it counts for him as charity.” (Muslim)

“It is enough sin for a man not to give food to the one whom he is supposed to feed.” (Abu Dawud)

It is related by ‘Aisha Radhiallahu ‘anha: Some desert Arabs came to him one day and asked: ‘Do you kiss your children?’ He answered: ‘Yes.’ They said: ‘We never kiss them.’ The Prophet (saw) said: ‘What can I do if your hearts have been stripped of compassion?’ (Bukhari)

Abi Hurraira Radhiallahu ‘anhu narrated: The Prophet (saw) kissed Al-Hasan the son of ‘Ali while Al-Aqra’a Bin Habesh Altaimi was visiting him. Al-Aqra’a said: I have ten kids and I have never kissed anyone of them, then the Prophet (saw) looked at him and said: Those who are not merciful will not have the mercy (of Allah). (Bukhari)

‘Amr ibn Shu’ayb narrated from his father that his grandfather said: Teach your children to pray when they are seven years old, and smack them (lightly) if they do not pray when they are 10 years old. (Abu Dawud)
