The kindness of the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) towards children

SHAFAQNA – There is narration about the kindness shown by the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) towards his grandson, Imam Hussain (AS) which said: One day, the Prophet (PBUH) was performing Salaat in the Mosque, suddenly Imam Hussain (AS) who was a child at the time, ran towards the Prophet (PBUH) and when he was prostrating, climbed on his back. When the Prophet (PBUH) raised from prostrating, took Imam Hussain (AS) and placed him next to himself.

The same happened a few times whilst the Prophet (PBUH) performed his Salaat. A Jewish person who was witnessing the scene from far away, came to the Prophet (PBUH) and said: The way you behave towards your children, is not practiced among us. The Prophet (PBUH) replied: If you believe in God and the Divine Prophet, you will be kind towards children. This scene and sayings of the prophet (PBUH) caused that Jewish man to convert to Islam [1].
