Reward for caring properly for one’s daughters

Question

Please provide the reference for the following Hadith:

‘If a man gets a daughter grows her up properly and gives her an education and gets her married Jannah becomes binding on him’

 

Answer

Sayyiduna Jabir (radiyallahu’anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:

‘Whoever has three daughters, whom he cares for, educates and gets them married, will get Jannah.’

Someone asked: What if he has only two daughters?

Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) replied: ‘Even if he has only two.’
