Hadith Explanation

Birth of a Girl

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Anyone who is blessed with the birth of a girl and does not bury her alive in the manner of the pagan days and does not look down upon her; neither shows preference to the boy over the girl, nor considers the boy in any way superior to the girl, such a man will surely be admitted to Jannah by Allah.” [Abu Dawud]

Do not look down upon the female child, nor show preference to the boy over the girl. Treat both with love and behave towards both in an equal manner.
