Most Indonesians only have two children in their families. They chose to only have two children on the basis of a variety of different reasons, ranging from economic factors, and so on. Not infrequently, even two children owned in a family are both girls.
Having a daughter or son is actually the same. Because they all have their own privileges. But there are still those who think that having boys is more profitable than having a daughter. Because, boys are considered more reliable in seeking sustenance, until they are considered more able to be protectors and can be relied upon in various other cases. So that not infrequently there are still parents who are disappointed when the two children they get are girls.
Even though in Islam, having two daughters has its own privileges. Then how is the virtue of having two daughters in the Islamic view? Apparently, the presence of girls is one of the blessings given by God. Rasulullah SAW once said that whoever is tested with daughters and he does good to his daughters, the daughters will be a barrier for him from hell fire.
From Aisha RA, he said, “There was a woman who came to see me with her two daughters. He begged me, but I had nothing but one date palm. Then I gave him a date for him. The woman accepted the dates and divided them into two to give to her two children, while she herself did not take part in eating them. Then the woman got up and came out with her child. After that the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam came and I told him the incident, then the Prophet sallallahu alay wa sallam said, Whoever is tested with the daughters, then he does good to them, then the daughters will be a barrier from torment hell fire. . “(Narrated by Muslim)
In fact, having daughters will also make parents get heaven and be free from hell. As long as they can care for and care for the two girls well. As narrated from Aisha RA in the following hadith.
Aisha RA said, “A poor woman came to me with two daughters, then I gave her three dates. Then he gave to his children each one date palm, and one date he wanted to put in his mouth to be eaten alone. But the two children requested the dates. So the mother also divided the two dates she had originally wanted to eat to give to her two children. The incident amazed me so I told the woman what he had done to the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam. So the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said: Verily Allah has decreed for him heaven and freed him from hell. ” they have to adulthood, he will come on the Day of Judgment with the Messenger of Allah. Narrated from the friend of Anas bin Malik RA, he said that the Messenger of Allah SAW said, “Whoever nurtures two daughters to adulthood will come on the Day of Judgment with me. (Anas bin Malik said: The Prophet combined his fingers). “(Narrated by Muslim)
Such is the primacy of Muslims who educate and look after their two daughters. That girls will be a barrier for them from hellfire, get heaven and be free from hell, and will walk side by side with the Prophet Muhammad on the Day of Resurrection later.
