A person who is tested with the loss of a child should know that the Prophet S.A.W., lost all of his children during his life, except for Faatimah who died after him.From his guidance is that he, S.A.W., became sad at their passing away and shed tears, but he, S.A.W., would not say except that which pleases Allah.
16. Not to be too attached with worldly things and to give Charity Ibn Hajar (a scholar) said: “Al-Muhallab and others said: “The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, hated for his daughter what he hated for himself, that the good things would be their reward in this life only and not in the next. He did not intend that putting a curtain on the door is forbidden.”
He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, would call the child by the best of names, or by his nickname, or by a good quality in him. How does this compare with the callous, harsh treatment that so many young children receive today?
Anas ibn Maalik narrated: “The Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, passed by two children playing and greeted them with Salaam (saying Assalaamu ‘Alaykum).” [Bukhari] Refer : https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10153701792742482&substory_index=0&id=228894147481
43. The Prophet S.A.W. would give children gifts Gifts leave a deep effect on hearts and have a great impact on them, more so in the case of children. This is why the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, used to give children gifts. www.fb.com/LearnIslam.Parenting
18.Asking to take responsibility He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, advised Faatimah to take respon- sibility for her actions. He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, told her: “O Faatimah, rescue yourself from Hellfire, for I cannot save you from Allah.” ( reported in al bukhari and muslim )
The Prophet was playful, loving and caring when he needed to and was stern in his advice when he needed to. Applying the Prophetic advice helps bridge the gap between generations and spreads an atmosphere of love and understanding between the young and the old.

17. Guidance for the Best of this Life & the Next reason the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, did not give them a servant is that he chose to donate whatever came to him to the poor people of the Suffah, and he was of the view that patience was better for his family because it is greater in reward.
