He (may Allah’s peace be upon him) replied,

October 27, 2010 Leave a comment

On the authority of Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him):  The Messenger of Allaah (may Allah’s peace be upon him) said:

“…and whoever takes care of three daughters or three sisters and raises them upon good manerisms, is merciful towards them until Allaah makes them independent of him, Allaah would obligate the entrance to Jannah [Paradise] for him.

A man said: ‘O Messenger of Allaah, or two?’

He responded: ‘or two.’

Even if they said one, he would have said one…”

[Sharh as Sunnah: 13/14]
