Kind to the children

Reference: Safahaat Mushiqah min Hayaat al-Imaam Muhammed ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen – Page 71

Shaykh Ahmad al-Qar’aawee narrates:

Often, before the Shaykh entered the masjid, a little girl of 6 years would approach him asking the Shaykh for a riyal. So, the Shaykh, smiling, would say to her:

“Would you like a [brand] new riyal or an old [used] riyal?”

So she would reply: “I would like a new riyal.”

So the Shaykh would give her a new riyal, and then she would ask him on behalf of her sister, and the Shaykh would give her one [riyal] too.
