The forgotten child

Assalamualaikum.

Paediatrics.

i had 2 patients who made me realize that humans can turn to be horrible monsters.
1. Child rape
2. Non accidental injury

unfortunately these innocent children happened to be with undiagnosed psychopaths running free.
i wonder how will they grow up with such traumatic lives 
What kind of person will they be like, when their rights, safety and trust are betrayed by evil men.
it's sickening.
too painful to imagine.

Prophet Muhammad s.a.w said:

“Fear Allah and treat your children [small or grown] fairly (with equal justice).”(Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

Have mercy. Have mercy.

In one hadith Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated:
I went along with Allah’s Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) at a time during the day but he did not talk to me and I did not talk to him until he reached the market of Banu Qainuqa`. He came back to the tent of Fatimah and said, “Is the little chap (meaning Al-Hasan) there?” We were under the impression that his mother had detained him in order to bathe him and dress him and garland him with sweet garland. Not much time had passed that he (Al-Hasan) came running until both of them embraced each other, thereupon Allah’s Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “O Allah, I love him; love him and love one who loves him.” (Muslim)

Anas ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him),said:

I never saw anyone who was more compassionate towards children than Allah’s Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him). His son Ibrahim was in the care of a wet nurse in the hills around Madinah. He would go there, and we would go with him, and he would enter the house, pick up his son and kiss him, then come back. (Muslim)

Usamah ibn Zaid (may Allah be pleased with him) said:
Allah’s Messenger used to put me on (one of) his thighs and put Al-Hasan ibn `Ali on his other thigh, and then embrace us and say, “O Allah! Please be merciful to them, as I am merciful to them.” (Bukhari)

Allah’s Messenger kissed Al-Hasan ibn `Ali while Al-aqra` ibn Habis At-Tamim was sitting with him . Al-Aqra` said, “I have ten children and have never kissed one of them.” The Prophet cast a look at him and said, “Whoever is not merciful to others will not be treated mercifully.” (Al-Bukhari)


Narrated Abu Qatadah: “The Messenger of Allah came towards us while carrying Umamah the daughter of Abi Al-`As (Prophet’s granddaughter) over his shoulder. He prayed, and when he wanted to bow, he put her down, and when he stood up he lifted her up.” (Al-Bukhari)

Narrated Umm Khalid: I (the daughter of Khalid ibn Said) went to Allah’s Messenger with my father and I was wearing a yellow shirt. Allah’s Messenger said, “Sanah, Sanah!” (`Abdullah, the narrator, said that sanah meant “good” in the Ethiopian language). I then started playing with the seal of prophethood (between the Prophet’s shoulders) and my father rebuked me harshly for that. Allah’s Messenger said, “Leave her.” The Prophet, then, invoked Allah to grant her a long life thrice. (Al-Bukhari)

So start being human, and tear off the monstrosity of yours.

to make matter worst,the abused child always cling to the perpetrator because psychologically they are unconsciously trained that they have noone to turn to.

the more they are abused, the more they cling to the person

pity them
