Hadith No. 32

رسول الله(صلی الله علیه و آله): ريح الوَلَدِ مِن ريحِ الجَنَّةِ، و لا يُحِبُّ البَناتَ إلّا مُؤمِنٌ.

The Prophet (s.a.w.) said: “The scent of a child is from the scent of Paradise, and no one likes girls other than a believer.”

Hadith No. 33

الإمام الصادق (علیه السلام): البَنونَ نَعيمٌ، وَ البَناتُ حَسَناتٌ، وَ اللهُ‏ُ يَسألُ عَنِ النَّعيمِ، و يُثيبُ عَلَى الحَسَناتِ .

Imam al-Sadiq (a.s.) said:  “Sons are bounties and daughters are rewards, and Allah asks about the bounties and recompenses for the rewards.”

Hadith No. 35

رسول الله(صلی الله علیه و آله): البَناتُ هُنَّ المُشفِقاتُ المُجَهِّزاتُ المُبارَكاتُ، مَن كانَت لَهُ ابنَةٌ واحِدَةٌ جَعَلَهَا الله‏ُ لَهُ سِترا مِنَ النّارِ، و مَن كانَت عِندَهُ ابنَتانِ اُدخِلَ الجَنَّةَ بِهِما، و مَن كانَت عِندَهُ ثَلاثُ بَناتٍ أو مِثلُهُنَّ مِنَ الأخَواتِ وُضِعَ عَنهُ الجِهادُ وَ الصَّدَقَةُ.

The Prophet (s.a.w.) said: “Girls are sympathetic, helpful, and blessed. Whoever has one of them, Allah will appoint her as a shield for him against Hellfire. Whoever has two, Allah will make him enter Paradise because of them, and if he has three, or like them but sisters, the obligation of [recommended] jihad and charity will be removed from him.”

Hadith No. 42

الكافي عن إبراهيم الكرخي عن ثقة حدّثه من أصحابنا: تَزَوَّجتُ بِالمَدينَةِ، فَقالَ لي أبو عَبدِ اللهِ‏ِ(علیه السلام): كَيفَ رَأيتَ؟

قُلتُ: ما رَأىٰ رَجُلٌ مِنْ خَيرٍ في امرَأَةٍ إلّا وَقَد رَأيتُهُ فيها، ولـٰكِن خانَتني!

فَقالَ: وَما هُوَ؟

قُلتُ: وَلَدَت جَارِيَةً.

قالَ: لَعَلَّكَ كَرِهتَها، إنَّ اللهَ عزوجل‏َ يَقولُ: ءَابَاؤُكُمْ وَأَبْنَاؤُكُمْ لاَ تَدْرُونَ أَيُّهُمْ أَقْرَبُ لَكُمْ نَفْعًا .

al-Kafi, narrating from Ibrahim al-Karkhi from a trustworthy person from among our [Shi‘a] companions who said “I got married in Medina and Abu ‘Abdullah [al-Sadiq] (a.s.) asked me: “How did you find marriage?”

I said: “There is no man that has found any good in a woman in the way I saw in her, but she betrayed me.”

He asked: “What betrayal was it?”

I answered: “She gave birth to a female.”

He said: “It seems that you hate her. Allah says:  “…your parents and your children –you do not know which of them is likelier to be beneficial for you.” 

Hadith No. 43

كشف الغمّة عن أيُّوب بن نوح: كانَ لِيَحيَى بنِ زَكَرِيّا حَملٌ، فَكَتَبَ إلَيهِ [أي إلَى الإِمامِ الهادي(علیه السلام)]: إنَّ لي حَملاً فَادعُ اللهَ‏َ أن يَرزُقَني ابناً.

فَكَتَبَ إلَيهِ: رُبَّ ابنَةٍ خَيرٌ مِن ابنٍ، فَوُلِدَت لَهُ ابنةٌ.

Kashf al-Ghummah, narrating from Ayyub ibn Nuh who said:  “Yahya ibn Zachariah [his wife] was expecting a child, so he wrote to him [i.e. Imam al-Hadi (a.s.)], saying: “I am expecting a newborn, so please beseech Allah to grant me a son.”

He [the Imam] (a.s.) wrote back to him: “Many a time it is that a daughter is better than a son!” And a daughter was born to him.”
