عن أنس بن مالك -رضي الله عنه- مرفوعاً: «مَنْ عَالَ جَارِيَتَين حتَّى تَبلُغَا جاء يَومَ القِيَامَة أَنَا وَهُو كَهَاتَين» وضَمَّ أَصَابِعَه.
[صحيح.] - [رواه مسلم [ بدون زيادة: كهاتين]، وهذا لفظ الترمذي.]

Anas ibn Mālik (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Whoever supports two girls till they grow up, he and I will come on the Day of Resurrection like this,” joining his fingers.

Explanation

This Hadīth points out the virtue of raising girls. A girl is weak and helpless, and families mostly do not devote any attention to their girls or take any interest in them. This is why the Messenger (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) made this statement: “Whoever supports two girls till they grow up, he and I will come on the Day of Resurrection like this,” interlacing his index and middle fingers. In other words, a person who supports two girls, whether two daughters, sisters, or others, will be a companion of the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) in Paradise. When a person supports another, he mostly provides him with clothing, food, drink, dwelling, furniture, and so on; and this also includes education, discipline, direction, and commanding the right and forbidding the wrong. So a person in charge of girls should take care of their interests and well-being here in this world and beyond.
