Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"Any Muslim who
loses three children before they reach the age of maturity, will be granted Jannah by Allah, the Exalted, out of His
Mercy for them.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Only that man who, patiently endures the loss of his children and expects reward from Allah, will
enjoy this privilege. Allah will have mercy on such people and admit them into Jannah owing to His Mercy towards
these innocent children.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"A Muslim
whose three children die (in infancy) will not be touched by the Fire (of Hell) except for the fulfillment of Allah's
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
[Allah's Oath here refers to His Ayah:
"There is not one of you but will cross over it (Hell).''
(19:71) And the
crossing will be across the `Bridge' set over the Hell.]
On the Day of Resurrection all humans, believers and disbelievers, will have to cross the
``Sirat or
set over the Hell. Believers will cross it in the twinkling of an eye according to their respective deeds done
in the world. Some will cross it with the speed of lightning and the air, some like birds and some like fine horses,
and others like riding-animals. All of them will cross the Bridge, some harmed and some unharmed. Some will fall
into Hell but will later be removed from it through the Prophet's intercession. However, the infidels will not be able
to cross it and all of them will land in Hell. The believer who loses three children and patiently endures this
affliction, and anticipates Allah's reward in the Hereafter, will also be bound to cross the Bridge in deference to the
Divine determination.

Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: A woman came to the Messenger of Allah
(PBUH) and said: "O Messenger of Allah! Only men benefit from your talks, so please fix a day for us, to teach us
the knowledge which Allah has taught you
'' The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) fixed a day and directed them to
assemble. When they gathered, the Prophet (PBUH) went to them and taught them what Allah had taught him. He
(PBUH) then said,
"Any woman of you whose three children die (in infancy) they will be a guard for her against
Fire (of Hell).''
One of the women asked: "What if she loses two?'' The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) replied,
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Islam requires us to do all that we can to impart moral instruction and the knowledge of Islamic
sciences to women. If a woman herself has received Islamic education and possesses the outlook of a true Muslim,
the child's upbringing will automatically be fashioned on Islamic lines. The younger generation's aversion to Islam
