Abu Hassan (rahimahullah) once said to Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu): “Two of my sons have passed away, can you narrate to me any Hadith from Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) which will console us for our loss?” He said, ‘Yes, [Nabi sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said] Their little ones [i.e. Children who pass away before puberty] are the little ones (da’amis) of Jannah.
