Equity Among Children

Nu’man bin Bashir (may Allah be pleased with them) reported:

My father took me to Allah’s Messenger Muhammad (may Allah’s peace be upon him) and said:

Allah’s Messenger, bear witness that I have given such and such gift to Nu’man from my property, whereupon the (the Holy Prophet) said:

┬áHave you conferred upon all of your sons as you have conferred upon Nu’man? He said: No. Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: Call someone else besides me as a witness. And he further said: Would it, please you that they (your children) should all behave virtuously towards you? He said: Yes. He (the Holy Prophet) said: Then don’t do that (i e. don’t give gift to one to the exclusion of others).

[Sahih Muslim; Book 012, Number 3969]
