Hadith:Show mercy to others


Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah (RadhiAllaho anho) reported:

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) kissed
his grandson Hasan bin `Ali (Alaihi Wasallam)
in the presence of Aqra` bin Habis. (RadhiAllaho anho)

Thereupon Aqra`(RadhiAllaho anho) remarked:
"I have ten children and I have never kissed any one of them.''

The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)

"Cast a glance upon him and said,
"He who does not show mercy to others,
will not be shown mercy.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].



Commentary:

This Hadith has already been placed earlier.
To pamper and kiss children is an expression of compassion 
and kindness.

One who lacks this tender quality and fails to behave 
kind-heatedly towards people, may be deprived of Divine mercy.

The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has said,
"Have compassion for others, ALLAH, Subhanahu wa ta'ala, 
will have mercy on you.''

On another occasion the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said,
"Be merciful to others and Allah ALLAH, Subhanahu wa ta'ala, 
will have mercy on you, and forgive (others), you will be forgiven.'
