Is this a Hadith?
“Love your sons, for daughters love themselves”
‘Allamah Suyuti (rahimahullah) was asked regarding the authenticity of this narration. He replied, ‘This Hadith is unknown and I have not come across it in any book of Hadith’
(Al Hawi, vol. 1 pg. 429, Darul Fikr edition. Also see: Kashful Khafa, Hadith: 132)
The narration should not be quoted.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
