Being Kind and Merciful to One’s Child

The shaikh, Dr. ʿAbdullāh Al-Bukhārī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Imām Al-Bukhārī, in his Ṣaḥīḥ, put together a chapter on “Being Kind and Merciful to a Child, Kissing Him, and Hugging Him.” He reported a number of ḥadīths in [that chapter].

Al-Ḥāfiẓ Ibn Baṭṭāl added a comment, saying:

Being kind and merciful to a small child, hugging him, kissing him, and being gentle with him are from the deeds Allāh is pleased with and rewards.

Sharḥ Al-Bukhārī, vol. 9, p. 211.
