Precious, Precious Daughters

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Some fathers rejoice at having male offspring; they haven’t realized, along the same lines, the excellence of daughters and raising them.

How many a daughter tells the story of her father’s [good] work in raising her–through her good manners, her beautiful self-control, her true chastity and self-restraint.

She pays no attention to temptations, doesn’t get weak in the face of distractions, or become lax about matters concerning good behavior and conduct.

Daughters are the precious ones, the ones who give us much needed company, as our Prophet ﷺ said.
