A Child's Religion [contd. II] (Ahadith 1163 - 1166)


Bismillah.
Hadith no 1162 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.
Narrated Anas bin Malik
Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) said, "Any Muslim whose three children died before the age of puberty will be granted Paradise by Allah because of His mercy to them."
Narrated Al-Bara':
When Ibrahim (the son of Prophet) expired, Allah's Apostle said, "There is a wet-nurse for him in Paradise."
Meaning, the kid directly went to Paradise. How fortunate! <3
Narrated Ibn Abbas:
Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) was asked about the children of (Mushrikeen) pagans. The Prophet replied, "Since Allah created them, He knows what sort of deeds they would have done."
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet was asked about the offspring of pagans (Mushrikeen); so he said, "Allah knows what sort of deeds they would have done."
Thus Allah will decide where they end up.
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, "Every child is born with a true faith of Islam (i.e. to worship none but Allah Alone) and his parents convert him to Judaism or Christianity or Magianism, as an animal delivers a perfect baby animal. Do you find it mutilated?"
Such is the nature of a human being. If he's left on a stranded island without any external influnce, he'll grow up to believe in a 'Higher Power'. He might not know His name, but he'll believe in Him. That's fitrah. And scientists found the 'God spot' int he human brain a couple of years back, which now turned out to be 'multiple areas in the brain responsible for spirituality'.
Guess what? Prophet (SAW) told us about 'fitrah' more than 1400 years back. :)
